ive got a plan!


might not be a good one, but its a plan!


when i did the wash on the headdress, i realised something!

washes on the headdress suck! seriously, they went on nicely, picked up all the detailing, but darkened it WAY too much, and because it was all airbrushed and mixed paint, i couldnt exactly go and pick out details again

so this time, much much lighter base coat! compensate for the wash!


now see... i did such a good job on the body! i was truely impressed with what i'd done!

the shading might not have shown on the pictures i posted, but in person, its the best thing i'd ever done!

at least the base and hands are done, i dont have to worry about those

you know what?

Looking at the way you did the base, and picturing the entire model in my mind, this all works!

Really cant wait to see the entry finished.....but.....you still have time so ...get...it...right!

That's about the best advice I can give right now. Don't feel rushed, just get it done the way you want. Looks very nice so far.

And to estarriol and Bob to Some(and you really need to give us a 1 word nickname! ;) ), get crackin! 2 days to go!
