Love thy Grunt for without him nothing is possible.
Better I think. Gives it a little more depth and blends the colours together :). I would def go back and do the rest :)
Poss though I would water down the wash a little to make it slightly less dark. Would go 25% water the rest wash (gw's lhamaean medium is great for thinning washes as it helps the flow)
That's straight Vallejo sepia ink. No water
When you use inks/washes, a nice final stage (after the wash) is to brush back over the top sections with your "pre washed" color. It'll add a nice bit of depth and takes very little time. In this way you both darken and shade the model, and then highlight and brighten in in two short steps.
Hmm could be worth a shot. Write now I have a yes and a no for it. As for me i like both of them.
