I highlighted with a little pink, which actually brought the purple out more. Also brought his softer skin to more of a white shade.
The tusks were made by roughly dry-brushing on many layers of different brown to give them a natural "streaked" look, before washing to blend the drybrush. I touched that up with a little airbrushing to add a "flow" of colour.
His teeth and nails I also airbrushed... the teeth were too small an area though and are going to need some manual brushing. His finger nails turned out excellent though.
The hair is still a little rough... I manually painted it first, then airbrushed a few layers, using a piece of paper as a backdrop to avoid overspray. The orange and yellow I used was too thin though, so they didn't really show up. I'm going to have to spray on a layer of lighter (thicker) orange and white before going back over with the brighter (thinner) colours.
