Uncas (Last of the Mohicans)

Uncas, the young indian of the heroic trio and the titular "Last of the Mohicans". I tried to paint him the way he looks in the movie, don't know if that succeeded with the green shirt coming off in a slightly different color and I wasn't feeling bold enough to cover it in tiny dots.

I'm more happy with how the flesh turned out, since it involved a bit of experimentation.

The skin is painted differently than the skin on Magua since I wanted Uncas and Chingachgook to look slightly different. While Magua was painted to have a dark/bronzed tint I wanted Uncas and Chingachgook to me slightly more pale. The skin recipe that I used was almost identical to how Magua is painted, with the exception of using a second wash of Soft Tone and a mix 25-25-25-25 mix of Charred Brown, Yellow, Dwarf Flesh and Elf Flesh.


  1. Very nice, Sir. You've a fine collection that would make Mr. Cooper happy.

  2. Thanks for the kind words Jay :-)

  3. Nah dont worry Anatoli. The colour might not be exact, but there's no mistaking him. Lovely work.

  4. You pulled that off beautifully - he couldn't be anyone else!
