    Toss it Alex and just count it as a crash and burn.

    To be quite honest, I think it looks amazing. I think it looks really well done considering how many high res images of the ESB I've studied. The color, weathering, shading. the damage it all looks extremely well done. Two thumbs way up.

    Oooooooh!! Nice.
    I love the way that shoulder "decal" came out. Is it a decal??? I kind of see a raised edge. . . but then part of the skull looks hand painted.

    WOW you nailed it bro.. ...it's both....
    I didn't like how "red" the decal was...so I just painted on it to darken... ..then sealed it of coarse...

    Hmm I don't know man. I think you need a little more practice before you can start charging money. You probably need to paint around 1 more full set of armor. I'll tell you what, I will send you my armor to practice on. Looks great man:thumbup

    I have just spent hours myself staring at the ESB photos, and those shoulder bells look really good!

    I know me too.. ....maybe this is one of the reasons not many people have done ESB, because of the lack of actual HIGH RES reference.....so I just ad-libbed(sp) on some area's.. ....

    Thanks for the comments, was kinda hoping you guys would tear into it more...

    Looks awesome!

    How much tearing into it do you want? I don't want to seem like a jerk or anything.

    I've never painted anything for Fett, but I just wanted to point out a few things I noticed. Again, you did a GREAT job on this, like you always do, just want to help get it as accurate as possible.

    I don't have many good knee reference pics, but from what I have, your paintjob on the knees looks spot on!

    EDIT: I just noticed that saving these in .jpg really messed up the stuff I circled. I'll reupload these in .png from Photobucket if you want better versions.

    Yeah, those two light grey areas on the left shoulder is what I was going to point out, but Mando man beat me to it. Otherwise, Very impressive painting there!!!
