As I always do, I prime in two colours, black for the entire figure and white for the lights.
This step will help a lot in the futures steps.
I want to do a very irish man, so I use reds and pinks for teh skin, and desaturated a lot the lights.
After the general tone, I put some blue and green in the shadows, because the cold environment of Ireland. Also paint the redhair.
Here are some pictures of the colours I use, first picture for the skin, and the second one for the redhair.
I do the entire shield (include weathering), the brooch, and the cotton cloak.
Weathering is a lot of fun job.
Picture of the mix for the cloack.
Hope you like the progress of my work, and see you in the next entry!
