After the base paint is completely dry paint on the finishing details all over the entire body and head until you get the effects you are looking for and as illustrated in your concept drawings. Be careful around the joints and points of articulation as paint can hinder movement by clogging the ball-and-socket areas of the joints. Let the painted action figure dry completely. You might consider placing the action figure in direct sunlight for faster drying. Once the paint has set and is hardened move the action figure`s parts and touch-up as needed. For the a finishing effect you may want to use a coat of varnish or a satin glaze on those parts of the action figure that you want to have more sheen.
Paint lightly and evenly over the entire body for the base layer taking care to not move the articulated joints as you paint. Let dry. After the base paint is dry move the joints to crack the paint making sure that the joints are not glued together with the paint then paint those spots that were not painted during the first pass. Put on another thin layer of paint where needed. Let dry.
