AWI highlanders (2)
Once I've made progress with the main colours I do the faces and when I do the pupils in the eyes I blackline the entire figure. Then I finish the flesh and once that's over I feel like I'm at the tidying up and completion stage. I've actually already done a bit of blacklining on the figures in then photo, on the muskets, in order to add the "Spearshaft C" highlight to the wood and the figures' hair (I don't bother with 2 highlights on muskets anymore; just the base "A" shade and then the "C" highlight. Talking of muskets, as these are highlanders the slings remains black, as with belts etc. I'll explain the grey haversacks later.
