2nd ADF figure painted

After this 1st figure:

I believe the base "tone" of the figure resulting from the base colour used on the uniform before the pattern of spots is too dark and too brown.

I added more beige yellow spots to the 1st test figure (on left below) and then began the 2nd test figure with the beige yellow base colour over the black undercoat (on the right below). I think it looks better.

What do you think?


This is what is should look like

The figure with the yellow spots looks the best, but I agree with you, the base colour is still too dark, and probably needs to be more "sand" based.

Maybe mix some white with your base colour to make a lighter custom base.

I wonder if using a torn piece of blister foam-rubber as a 'brush' would work at this scale to represent the cammo?

Thanks Anthony. It is a bit more yellow than the pic but I will add a splint more yellow to the paint.

Allan. I have tried that over the past few months but I found the 10/0 tip brush better to use.
