Oak leaf tutorial

OK I've dabbled with another step by step/tutorial it's the first one I've done since I started my blog. I would normally do it through photobucket but now I have my blog well it would be wrong to not to post it here. I have only covered painting the actual smock, I will add a link to my photobucket which covers several tutorials which covers painting the entire figures from start to finish. I am no expert and this is purely my take on Oak leaf camo, so on to the tutorial. I usually use Vallejo paints but GW paints are the order of the day with this one.

Step1
 Undercoat the figure, this is personal choice but I think white works well for this camo pattern.

Step2 
 I used miniature paints Umber but adding black to dryad bark will do the job just as well.

Step3 
 Wash over with nuln oil , this is to shade the recesses in the smock.

Step4 
 Reinstate dryad bark on the raised areas of the smock.

Step5 
 Paint irregular patches of Elysian green across the smock.

Step6 
 Wash Elysian green with nuln oil, this will help to add depth to the creases in the smock.

Step7 
 Now add random patches of Gorthor brown across the smock

Step8
Reinstate Elysian green then highlight by adding white 

Step9 
 Reinstate Gorthor brown and highlight by adding white 

Step 10 
 Now add small random dots of Elysian green mixed with white. These should help to break up the edges of the Dryad bark areas.

Step11 
 Now add small random dots of Dryad bark over the larger areas of colour. This will help to build up the Oak Leaf pattern.

Step12 
 Using a mix of Elysian green and white add smaller dots over the top of the dots of dryad bark. Build the green up over the brown and vice versa.

Step13
 Add smaller dots of Gorthor brown over the dryad bark dots painted over the Elysian green.

Step14
 Finish up painting the rest of the figure, it's being a while since I last did a step by step so please if I have messed it up I apologise, if something isn't clear then just leave a comment and I will try my best to answer it.
