Here's my latest effort! Tried to replicate the Brom painting in the colors.
Thanks go to Anne Foerster at Reaper for the tips on Reaper MSP Linen White for the skin!
Let me know what you think!

Somehwere out in the world there is one that i did in about the exact same way... doing skin that pale just doesn't photo very well. It is a complex scheme with a lot of careful blending required and I give you full props for your faithful execution of the origianl Brom artwork.
Not that I'm a big Gazelle fan or anything...

WOW!!!! If my Gazelle were to end up half as good as yours, I would be sooooo happy!.... I love the attention to detail, down to the base, with all the squiggly lines similar to the original Brom piece :) Top work and voted on accordingly! :)
Can you share with us the Linen White for the skin? Thanks!

That's great! Nice tribute! My gazelle has been laying around for awhile and I will have to try a pale skin scheme too.

That's really good, well done!
Woa! Spot on! I love it when people succesfully do the Brom picture comes to life thing!

Ditto the praise for the base - that extra attention really compliments an already excellent paintjob - well done!

Very nice. The pale skin did seem to reflect a bit too much light in the photo, but the quality still shows through. The hair could be just a bit more orange to match the original painting, but that's really just me nitpicking.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
For the pale flesh, a base coat of Reaper MSP Tanned Highlight layered up with MSP Linen White works like a charm.
The photo on this is a tad blown out as, after shooting it, I discovered I hadn't moved the lamp from shooting smaller figs. Anyway, the actual paint has a bit more "fleshy" tone. I wanted to avoid the sepia-like lighting effect represented in the original art since the figure would be viewed in a variety of lighting situations.
Thanks again for all the great feedback. I have a couple of other Dark Age redheads to do soon.

Almost missed this. She looks really good. I'm definitely a fan of the freckles on the legs and arms - so I'll probably cover mine with them!
