Next, I painted the leather areas, boots, belt, and loincloth, being careful not to get any on the flesh areas.

The boot straps were time consuming, I chose a lighter color for them, so that they would show up against the brown of the boots.

Next, I moved on the the ornamentation on Thrud's belt. I decided to go with a coppery color for some contrast. The small metal studs along the belt were done in a dark silver.

Next I moved on to the metal areas, helmet and axe head. Again, I had to be careful not to get any on the flesh colored areas. Not that I couldn't have fixed it, but I just wanted to avoid the extra work.
|Thrud is totally metal!|
