Default SM Scouts, Faces

Heya Guys, I'm having a hard time getting the Faces to look any good at all. If you walkd into a room and saw them from 10 metres away youd think they weren't too bad but get up close and you'd think a 3 year old got to the faces of them. HELP!!!! I would like a tutorial on Face Painting. Eyes, Mouth, Skin, Hair and so on. Thanks Heaps!

Two drums and a Cymbal fell of a cliff....Badoom Chish!!

i suggest these steps


1: after undercoating the models, paint the skn tanned flesh
2: then, once dried, lightly paint in dwarf flesh
3: for the final layer, drybrush in elf flesh
4: now is the time to do details, as eyes (should you choose to). I sometimes use a small bit of black ink in the eyes, less hassle and almost as good effect.


1: after undercoating, paint in scorched brown
2: then drybrush in bestial brown
3: for the final touch, a light drybrush of vermin brown

I hope this helps you, if something is wrong feel free to PM me

Good luck!
