Centurio Quintus Sertorius Festus - Update #4

As always, once dry, highlight tones are added using a glaze of Titanium White and Cad Yellow Deep. Cadmium Red Deep with hints of Mars Black were applied to the base of the feathers and pure Cad Red Deep was applied to the remainder of the feathers. This provides the base tones over which the texture can be created with lighter tones of red.

A glaze of Mars Black was applied to the stonework and quickly wiped off with a bit of paper towel. This creates shadow tones, allows the warmer brown tones to show through and the rough texture of the paper towel creates a more natural appearance by also removing some of the brown paint in spots.
Further shadow and highlight work remains to be done as deeper shadows will be applied in a few spots with Brownish Madder. A bit of Burnt Umber and Alizarin Crimson was applied to the lips and highlighted with white.

The leather padding of the cheek-guards was outlined with Brownish Madder and deeper shadows applied. Additionally, black washes were applied to the medals on his phalarae and an initial shadow tone for the scale armor (also Brownish Madder).
