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 pants were basecoated with deep blue. It's not necessary to paint a fully opaque layer at this stage. Two thin coats should be enough.

  • A mix of deep blue and banshee beige was applied leaving the dark wash in the recesses.
  • More banshee beige was added and applied to as a highlight to the creases.
