Dark Eldar Archon-Flayed Skin

Just another update on the Dark Eldar Archon.  I finished the flayed skin and fur pelt on his back.  Sadly, I couldn’t stop and take step-by-step photos for this one as wet blending doesn’t really allow for it, but the steps are typed out for you below the picture.

Archon Flayed Skin Final

Step 1.  I started by basecoating the flayed skin with Tallarn Flesh.

Step 2.  The flayed skin was shaded with a 1:1 mix of Dark Flesh and Liche Purple that was thinned and applied into the recesses.

Step 3.  The whole area was washed with Ogryn Flesh.

Step 4.  I then highlighted the flayed skin with thinned Rotting Flesh.

Step 5.  The flayed skin was highlighted again with a 1:1 mix Rotting Flesh and Skull White.

Step 6.  Further highlighting was done by adding more Skull White to the previous mix.  Approximately 2:1 Skull White to Rotting Flesh.

Step 7.  Lastly some edge highlighting was done by adding in more Skull White to the previous mix.  Approximately 3:1 Skull White to Rotting Flesh.
