I feel like that's a Blade Runner reference?

Looking good. I particularly like Joss. Did you end up using the Reaper colors on that?

I used the Reaper skin tone sets on both.

They look good. I'm glad it worked out for you. Reaper was at PAX, so I picked up another box full of their stuff, including some of the harder to find colors like the Vampiric and Dusky flesh tones. I'm thinking I'll try them out on my Primordial Magic tonight.

I wonder if I could have got a more borg like look if I had mixed a touch of blue into howard's skin.

Yeah, maybe. A tiny bit of Frostbite (P3) might work or you could go the more purplish route with just a hint of Sombre Grey (Vallejo). But given that his armor is blue, you might want to go with a slightly different hue... closer to green or putty gray. Something like Bloodless Skin or Vampiric Skin (both Reaper).

You can get a really nice effect by using different hues for the shadows and the base color as well. Here's a good tutorial on how to do it for zombie flesh. If you adjust the colors a bit this might be a way to get that borg-ish look you're going for.

Take a look at this picture: http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/mem ... -prefix=en

The highlights are almost pink, the midtones are a lightened up version of Sombre Grey or Dark Elf Flesh (Reaper) -- maybe lightened up with some tan to neutralize some of the purple -- and the shadows are Sombre Grey with some dark red-violet mixed in (maybe Burgundy Wine or Red Violet - both Reaper).

I think it looks good as-is, but if you're keen to play around with it...

My back is finally feeling better so I can sit down a paint again. Here is an Update. I'm still not completely happy with the flesh tones but at some point you have to just move on.

Looking good, Matt. I really like the way you did the metal on the Doves and Miners.

Agree on the metal tones -- they glow! Really nice work.

I like the pale flesh tones, myself. Can't tell about the eyes, particularly on the Performer.

But these look all-around excellent to me.

Ya I really dig the blue metal color. I think the flesh in the pictures is paler then in real life.
