Hey all just wondering if anyone knows a good way to paint red hair? was thinking along the lines of fiery orange with shading of red gore and probly like fiery/bleached bone or something.

You\'ve pretty much got it, although a brown coloured ink to shade is the best way, unless you want bright trollslayer looking hair.

I start with brown, and build up to the red you desire, generally with a bleachbone mixed highlight., shaded back with the ink.

i find scrab/blood red within a second layer of brown, but before an orange highlight, tends to darken it out enough to me a nice shading.
