|Ax Faction Giant Hunter, an early work-in-progress (WIP)|
I based this Ax Faction miniature's overall colour scheme on Ygritte's winter fur clothing as seen in the Game of Thrones HBO TV series. It comprises largely of greys, blues and browns - all pretty drab stuff actually. I am hoping that such a dull coloured clothing will be a good contrast to the rosy skin tone and red hair that I will be painting on the Giant Hunter aka Raen of Rannoch aka Ygritte.

In general, I might need to add more light greyish-blues to the clothing but the final decision on this will be dependent on how the current darker shades will look on the rosy skin tone I have planned for her. Sadly I just realised that all my hard work at creating a smooth colour transition between the shadows and highlights on Ygritte's buttocks area (see last photo below) will be for nought as I forgot that the cloak will generally cover up almost the entire area ... 'face-palm dumb self'.

That's about all for this short update on Ygritte. Further work on her skin and hair will depend largely on weather conditions. With haze and drought-like conditions resulting in some places in the city being put under water rationing, conditions are not too ideal for painting. But is has been raining a bit these past two days so things are looking up for my water-hungry miniature painting projects.
