The following has been kindly contributed by VRaider. A simple and direct guide to painting an anime model.
Just a some terms you should be familiar with before you move on to the next tutorial...
Now, on to the tutorial!
OUT THAT MODEL YOU JUST FINISHED WITH THE OTHER TUTORIAL AND KEEP ON
Deciding What to Do
Ok, you've painted your model but there's something missing... or is there? At this point you need to decide if you really -want- to use these advanced skills. This is because it's very easy to make a small mistake and mess up the whole model. Also I use a specific brand of paints, there called -Citadel- paints, the war hammer people. I use their painted because they're the best (IMO) and I like the names of the paints :). Ok well you've been warned here's what you'll need:
dry brushing (it's another form of highlighting):
What Paint to Use for Different Colors and a Little Info on Why
Black, Red, and Blue highlights. Use gray or white for a standard highlight. Use a metallic gold for a royal looking soldier or metallic for rusty highlights.
Green highlights. Use
a lighter shade of green or yellow of a normal highlight.
Not a whole lot to this, just get the same color of your base coat but get it in an ink and a shade darker. For white you can use a dark blue, and for red use brown.
Ok, now take out the model you just finished base coating. That's all you did, base coat the colors on it. But now were going to have some fun. Get a darker color of you base coat. And PLEASE remember (and I'll cap's it)...
FOR EVERY COLOR ON THE MODEL HAVE AN INK TO SHADE IT WITH AND A LIGHTER COLOR TO HIGHLIGHT IT!!!
I can't even begin to tell you how many people don't remember this rule. When you shade only shade the color that it was meant to get shaded. For example, after you've shaded red with a brown color.
