The first of 2 berber huntersfor my Helldorado Sarrasins army. The cloak is glazed versus layered. Very fast and easy.

John,

What kind of brushes do you use? I've always admired your work and I've been thinking lately that my brushes might be letting me down when I try to paint things. They don't seem to keep points very well.

I can say this about brushes, John gave me a high end brush that was broken in, and my painting went from ok, to a whole lot better.

Not trying to Steal the question, I just think a high end brush is well worth the money. Ive spent alot on cheap crap, just to wear out, and by more.

@ Danny - the cloak is Vallejo Model - Pale Sand.

Then very thin (like transparent) golden yellow: I used Rackham's b/c the pigment is finer for this type of work.

Layered this about 8 to 10 times. Load brush, off load on paper towel. Hit the area you want slowly building up color. I dry between layers w/ a hair dryer to speed this up.

Same w/ a light orange brown mixed in the yellow (VMC orange brown)6 passes (VMC. Then deeper orange brown - about 3 passes (RMS Oiled leather).

Highlights again w/ pale sand then Pale sand and white 50:50.

@ JMarv - most are done w/ Windsor and Newton series 7 miniature and none miniature. Purchased from www.dickblick.com

And Sigma's right....I'd paint w/ 50cent a bottle acrylics before I gave up the brushes. Worth every penny. Buy some brush soap too.
