I remember back in the 80s, there was a trend to paint stripes on minis which appeared to be wearing tight fitting pants (I dare not call them leggings). And even though this method gave a visually interesting effect to a plain and boring surface, I personally did not dare to attempt at painting such straight lines at evenly spaced increments. I held this fear until a few months ago, when I finally attempted my first stripes. I knew how to do it technically, but had zero experience at it. Anyway here is my first attempt at stripes on leggings.
Note: In case anyone is wondering the pig is from 'Fantasy Warlord miniatures' made by Alternative Armies, back in the early 90s.
