    Hi Chris, thanks for posting - ok, from what I can see you've got some colour blending issues here between transitions, these can be tricky. Try and use some thinned medium tones per colour to break up the harsh lines between each shade, I use a small wash repeatedly in some places. The white's can also be tricky so try and use say : beige, whites/or offwhite and a little light grey as filters/ between shadows mixed together with the base coat of say straight beige. For shadows, in my experience chocolate browns can be used quite effectively for deep shadow, but mixed with the base colour not on it's jack jones, it doesn't always look good, but that usually happens when you've added too much of the darker colour. Leathers can start out black matt with a small amount of choc brown, then add some thinned chocolate brown or leather brown on the edges and gradually add some white to the brown leather/choc brown for the very worn edges small amounts thinned down with a dadding effect.Just my tupp', ha'pennies worth.:notworthy:
