The Muck and the Mire - Yan Lo crew, part 1
My favorite Ashigaru is the one on the left, pushing through the dead plants- I felt that I got a strong sense of motion, there.
The swamp effect is a mix of kneadatite, house brushes, and filler, with a bit of gloss varnish for variation in dampness. These are all effects I've played with fairly recently, but the combination worked nicely, and some years' experience made the newer iteration a lot more natural and less finicky than it'd been.
I think the biggest exception as Izamu's shoulders, which would have naturally held on to a fair amount of muck, and was a nice, broad surface that could highlight the texture.
