This is my fantasy figure experiment now ready for paint. As usual this will be acrylics and Alkyd oils.

That really is a fantastic sculpt John. Conventional skin tones or bright green?

Jim Thanks for being a continual supporter of mine and everyone's blogs. You are one of those that makes this site so friendly and encouraging.

Peter Thanks very much. I think regular skin tones. I am going to try for a limited palette but high contrast finish with a selection of low saturation hues.

Hi John

I like the idea of high contrast, are you going to try for a Boris Vallejo type of finish?

Bobby Thanks mate

Peter I'm not too sure what a Boris Vallejo finish might look like but I think I will be aiming that way.

John Thanks very much, It was the base that came first so it was more of a case of making the figure to fit the base

Here is a link to Boris's website. For anybody who does not know his work, i first came across his work in the 80's hie does some great fantasy stuff, fantastically realistic skin tones.
