hello
This is actually an updating of an early custom posted in september 2011. It was one of my first customs and basically was just a head swap. As shinigami noticed at that time, skin tones on head and neck were different. said I would rework it in the future, but I couldn´t paint that good at that time, specially skin tones.-not that I am michaelangelo now, but I think I have improved a little-. I used my self discovered formula for (I think) painting effective Caucasian skin tones: base of flat flesh, wash in medium flesh and dry brush in flat flesh again. I also painted hair black and dry brushed dark green for highlights. This is why I decided to make a new entrance for this custom and not just an updating. so that the old one could remain as a token of my early steps in customizing, and to compare, for anyone who wishes to do so. Tell me what you think,please.
Cheers,
Ringo-
