Shylock:The Merchant Of Venice Act 4, scene 1, 304–307
Most learnèd judge, a sentence! Come prepare!
Tarry a little, there is something else.
This bond doth give thee here no jot of blood;
The words expressly are "a pound of flesh."
Good day guys!
Last weekend I bought a new colour from Vallejo range (70.804 -Beige red), while searching for the right tone for my little men and their flesh colours.
Up until last week I was using many variations of flesh colous ending up in Games Workshop Foundation Tallarn Flesh. It's used primarily as a base colour so as to paint the body excesses (nose, fingers, mouth, chickbones ets) with lighter shades of flesh (e.g GW Dwarf flesh - too bright for my taste).
I wanted to find a more suitable colour [not too bright (GW Elf flesh), not too dark(GW Tallarn flesh)], so as the washes I use for finishing my figures, would make some nice contrasts.
Below you see some comparison photos, with two of my figures having two different shades of flesh colours (if you come to think, you'd realize that this is completely reasonable, since the paratrooper was living in the US and later in Europe, and the Russian soldier was living in the vast steppes of soviet east...).
However, since I don't like discriminations (in all aspects), I decided to use Vallejo's 70.804 Beige red for all my little men, so as to be as consistent as a painter could be (if you succeed in doing this, tell me how you did it)!
