How to Paint Urban Camo + Eastern Skin? Help?
As I approach the huge task of painting every Hero or Villain that has ever entered Pulp City(roughly 100 different minis) and an entire wars worth of Dystopian French (well over 3000pts), I realise a problem.
I don't know how to paint very well!
Until now I have used base coats, dry brushes and washes. But I want to be able to paint better than that. Layering, blending and all that jazz.
With the aid of the new GW 'How to Paint' guide, months worth of White Dwarf guides, GWs 2 most recent paint sets and a selection of Winsor Newtons, I begin the mission.
Expect many questions, tests, muck ups and hopefully some finished models.
To start with are these 2 for the Paint the City Pink charity fundraiser.
At the top is the Green Serpent. I want to give her a pink body suit, shoes and accessories. That should be easy enough.
But how do I paint an 'Eastern' skin tone?. (I hope that's PC, not trying to be racist)
Next is Tangent. She is going to have a pink top with , hopefully, a Breast Cancer ribbon logo, pink laser sights and pink Urban Camo trousers. Maybe pink PCV boots?
But, how the hell do I paint Urban Camo?
Her are soem possible schemes I have found. Which do people prefer?
Any hints, tips or link would be greatly appreciated.
