    Hi Planeteers

    I've probably pushed more paint in the last 24 hours than all of you put together:p , but please take a closer look at the final stage of Step 1 - Base coat. All primer should now be covered by at least one, mostly two coats of Vallejo acylic paint, thinned at a ratio of 1:1 with distilled water.

    I intend to paint the figure (more or less) in the following sequence, and I will start a seperate blog for each one, so you can all see each step in sequence.

    First step - Base coating. Done (20 hours).

    Step 2 - is highlighting, mid tone highlight blended into ase coat at the edges.

    Step 3 - Deepest Shadows - lots of black/ green/ brown, no blending.

    Step 4 - Highest Highlights - blended at edges into mid tone highlight

    Step 5 - Mid tone shadows - tone everything down, blend deep shadows into Mid Shadow at edges, and mid shadow into base coat along edges.

    Step 6 - Dirty Him Up :D :D :D - weathering, more camoflague, mud, blood, sweat, wear and tear, stains, more mud.

    Step 7 - Finishing touches - metallic effects, gloss effects, pastels, dullcoat

    Step 8 - check into local insane asylum:eek: .
