This is version 2 of my dark acolyte concept.

The facial tattoo is now thinner and he’s got black eye-liner and lips.

I also took the opportunity to practice painting leather from a stock photo I found on the net.

I reckon this guy is a lot more sinister than the first dark acolyte.

I also made use of the “Lock Transparent Pixels” feature otherwise known as “Lock Alpha Channel” in Gimp.  A trick I learned from ctrlpaint.com.  This allows you to be really free with your brush strokes whilst only affecting the non-transparent pixels.  Awesome.
