Here he is primed and with the basecoat on.
Trouble here is the make-up of the paint. I used Games Workshop Elf Flesh as i figured it'd be a good tanned base to work from and their paints leave a nice, realstic skin sheen.
Trouble is, this paint shade is translucent - any type of highlighting - with whatever mix of the base and another - just adds to the deepness of the colour, making it darker and darker.
Decided to quit before cocking it up even more and going to repray with primer.
