I would end up doing a similar process on his sleeves.  I did not get any photos as I was focused on trying to get it done in one lunch break.  After the main robe was finished, I then needed to tackle the green hood.  It had the same wash issue that I had on the main robe.  I wanted to get some more progress done before spending another hour trying to blend.  So I tackled the dark green sleeves.  I spend a lot of time watching tutorials, reading other painters WIP posts.  One thing that I have never quite understood was the concept of highlighting to white.  To me, it just doesn’t seem right.

To show what I mean.  I took a   quick photo of the hoodie I was wearing.  You can see where the light is hitting the higher ridges.  Sure it is a lighter color, but it is nowhere near the white of the stripe.  For the dark sleeves, I used a Reaper Christmas Wreath to highlight the sleeves.  I think that it turned out pretty well.  I also spent some time highlighting the book that he is carrying.

It was now time to work on his hood.  I did not take photos as once again; I was working fast.  I ran out of time before I could glaze the layers together.

At this point, I felt like there was not enough left to do that it would keep busy for a full lunch break.  So the wandering monk is now on his way home for finishing touches.  Speaking of home, I was able to get a little bit more work done on the two orcs.  I finished base coating them.  Once again, I added slight differences to each of them.

I know that it looks like I missed the wood on their shield.  It is actually Reaper Ancient Bark.  I wanted to experiment with a different looking wood then the basic brown.  I am going for a weathered wood look.  Here is my reference photo.

With both of them, base coated, I gave one a wash using a wash of Secret Weapon Miniatures soft body black and one with Reaper’s sepia wash.  I had not tried the reaper washes before and I wanted to get a feel for them and what better to experiment with than a bog-standard orc.
