    Hey all! So I’m working on the bracers and boot chaps(?) and I am in need of a tip or two. I am trying to go for a worn and distressed leather look and feel. I have mainly just focused on the boot on the right at the moment. I basecoated with RMS Stone Grey and did some rough highlights with RMS Weathered Stone and RMS Linen White while shading with RMS Shadowed Stone and RMS Woodstain Brown. I then went over the area with Scale 75 Inktense Chestnut ink. The ink made it a little too yellowy so I re-established the base coat and as well as adding the base coat color to the ink to maybe unify the colors. At this point I am not sure how to proceed. I’m trying to achieve that distressed look with some tonal variations mixed in. I’m not sure I’m articulating this properly so I’m hoping you guys can translate, lol.
    Maybe some visuals will help. This is kind of what I’m after, but lighter in tone:
    (Apologies for the ginormous pics)

    it look to me like you need to do some stippling to get that effect. maybe stipple a dark brown on in places.

    Thanks, Coyote! I attempted a little bit of that. Not real sure if it turned out exactly how I want but it is getting there. Might work a bit more on it to see where I can take it. Here's my progress so far. Just the boot on the right still.

    Looking good. In the leather class I took, Kiril said for the wrinkled /creased areas use a small "s" shape instead of the traditional dot stiple to achieve the variation in those areas. You can see those shapes in the uppers on the boot picture you have. Now to be fair, I wasn't able to achieve the s effect in the class and that was a larger scale bust than what you are doing. So your milage may vary.

    Thanks KB! An "s" shape, you say? Interesting. Never would have thought of that. Like you say, not sure it's possible on the smaller scale like this guy, but I will definitely keep that little tip in mind. Might be trying a leathery cloak, which is a bigger surface area I could apply that technique to. And fail miserably at, lol! Thanks again for the view and the comment!

    I think I finished up the chaps and bracers. Don't look too shabby . . . or do look shabby as the case may be, haha. I repainted the nose from the previous droppage and attempted to fix up the eyes. they look a little better but still jacked up, haha. Obviously eyes are a major weak point on which I need to practice more. I also sketched in some highlights for the boots. I'm going to attempt Bailey's method of doing a shiny black with matte paints. Attempt being the operative word. If anybody has any suggestions or critiques on the highlight placement, I'm all ears. Thanks!

    The stippling has worked great on the boots. It really conveys the right texture.

    Wonderful painting on all of him Oct!
