I now have a youtube channel which you can view here. I don't really know what I'm doing so don't expect any Sorastro quality videos, but if you are curious as to how I paint then head over to my channel. Who knows, maybe I'll do that tutorial on painting leather.

The skin was basecoated with a mix of monster brown and lust.

Followed by a second wash of strong tone ink mixed with oak brown and water.

The basecolour was reapplied leaving the shading in the recesses.

A highlight of lust was applied to the edges and raised parts of the skin.

Some of the armour plates were basecoated with envy.

These plates were given a wash of green tone ink, envy and water.

Several glazes of green tone ink were applied to increase the shading.

A highlight of envy and pride was applied to the upper surfaces of the armour and to the edges.

An edge highlight was done with a mix of pride and white.

Glazes of flesh tone ink was applied to the highlighted parts to add a little colour variation.

The remaining armour plates were basecoated with oak brown.

The first edge highlight was done with envy.

A second edge highlight was done with a mix of envy and necrotic flesh.

All remaining parts except for the gun were basecoated with hydra turquoise.

Then washed with dark tone ink.

The gun was basecoated with sloth.

Then given a wash of dark tone ink.
