1⁄35Painting British & Pakistani Camouflage
conclusionWith that, you should now have two distinct cam patterns. I cannot stress enough that the colours I have used are according to my own colour perception, and should not be taken as a rule. I urge you to mix your own shades as you see fit.
There are many theories on how to shade and filter camouflage patterns to depict depth. Most painters agree that the more intricate the pattern, the less washes and filters it requires. I have no opinion on this, and simply experiment as I go along. I have used dark washes of varying strengths (darker on the DPM than on the Bhutto pattern). This was followed by some rudimentary weathering at the knees, elbows, and seat of the pants, to show wear and inlaid dirt. The latter will also help to give the camouflage a more cloth-like feel by slightly blending in the colours. This is what the fig looks like prior to highlighting and adding dust or mud with acrylic pigments or chalks (Photos 16 & 17).
