    Jun 1, 2007, 4:26 PM - does this look close? ( ESB paintjob ) #1

    hey all, ive been practicing my ESB painting on my old sintra chestplate peices, do you think the green is the right shade or close to ESB? i also think that i overdid the damage slightly, and some parts have a slight shine to them, due to a change in the weather when i sprayed the green.

    so please, Comments+Critique

    The damage looks pretty decent, but I'm afraid your green is off quite a bit bud. Its way to bright & green. You need something way more drab. Keep workin on it though, you'll get it right!!

    I say that the yellow looks pretty good, but try to find some darker organic colours, such as a forest or spruce green. I know paint finding is harder in the United Kindgom, do you have access to an airbrush of any sort?

    well i whipped out the airbrush and had a play about, i messed up the right chestplate, but its only test peices so it matters not. apart from that, any improvement on the colours of the other peices? i misted them with an olive drab colour and black, a few smudges here and there but its all practice..
