In all 4 stl files you could set the best resolution for the best result, for a better painting effect. The supports may not so hard to remove, then try to assemble it before your paint.
Step 2: Base Primer
A base primer can add a lot tinting strength of your model. So spread a layer of 360 degree base primer first. Due to the main light-color better use white primer.
Step 3: Yellow Under Paint
Dilute yellow with some paint thinner, pour into your airbrush.Shake well to make sure the pigment won't jam the brush. Padding the face part and the body.
Step 4: Add a Little Red Into the Palette
Add a little red into the palette. Then repeat the 3rd step, spray a wide range and cover the sunken part.
Step 5: Darken the Sunken Parts
Add more red and keep modulating till the yellow turn into orange. Then cover a thinner range on the sunken part. The pumpkin skin is finished now.

You may find the surface is a little bit bright. So we need to reduce that effect to strengthen more stereoscopic impression.
