Reed Effect on Spears

I wanted to do something a little different on the spears to give them a jungle-ish feel.  The way they were segmented really reminded me of bamboo. I painted the shafts in Charred Brown.  I then painted each segment with Terra Earth, Khaki and Bone White.  With each subsequent highlight I focused in the center and left the previous color showing through at the edges.  Finally, I hit the shaft with a heavy wash of Devlan Mud.  Really simple and I like the effect, though next time I will probably cut back on the Devlan Mud a bit as I went a little to heavy.
