Started shading the skin on the barbarian today. This is really just roughing in the first couple layers of shadows. I'm going back to trying red in the shadows again. This time I'm using a less vibrant red than last time. Hopefully that'll help me a little, and so far I think it is. That's RMS Redstone in the shadows now, which is a pretty desaturated red. I might go purple, blue, or brown in the deep shadows. Haven't decided.
