Camo painting
« on: October 28, 2016, 08:56:47 PM »
Trying to paint a suit in camo. I've tried light tones on top of dark and vice versa. Both times it looks like ass. I'm looking to get a quad tone NATO camo. Any tips welcome. Thanks in advance.

all I know is that it is very hard due to how the intermingle. I am planning on a suit with DPM S95 for a potential GWBC entry

No pressure on me so. I've tried freehand but most online suggestions say to use a stencil for multiple tone schemes. I'll try again and post any updates.

i don't know if it would be of help now, that late, but i thing Vegeta's Gouf custom color scheme would be of use:
