Painting had to be fast and rewarding so I started on a wraithbone contrast undercoat and first threw a wash of Drakenhof nightshade with Agrax eathshade and medium (2/1/2) all over and while the washes were still drying, went to blend more drakenhof nightshade on the forearms and calves, following that I gave the hands and feet a wash of nuln oil and then glazed the tip of the feet and fingers with Nuln oil again to create a cool gradient.
I knew I didn't want an even colour skin or they would have looked too dull and I like the idea of having the limbs dark to both convey the horrors on their hands and a form of strengthened skin (one piece readers will know what I mean).
I then just picked some parts with a glaze of crimson carroburgh, rasied a few edges with a gentle drybrush and I was good. No competition winner but all 4 done in under an hour and a real sense of achievement so exactly what I wanted to be honest !
Hope you folks enjoy as well !
