Well, the hair wasn’t too hard. How about something a little more challenging XD ?
Yes, we’re going to take on the chainmail next.
It would be insane to paint every chain by itself of course, so we’ll have to use a few tricks.
The technique we will use is similar to how we made the hair – defining the darker parts with umber, then coloring the rest, while leaving some shiny highlights.
You may want to use more water and less color this time and go a couple of times over the same definitions. Make sure to use the same directions, but don’t be too concerned with accuracy. It's the overall look that matters now (since the details have already been inked).
Lastly, we can add a bit of black for the shadowy parts.
