    Apr 23, 2009, 4:22 PM - BOBAMAKER HELMET PAINT UP/**PIC INTENSE** #1

    well, it finally got here...my brand new Bobamaker helmet...and i thought his armor was friggin' sweet!!! :thumbup this helmet rocks, and i just hope i can do the paintup justice...for the record, i commissioned Daz to do the main base colors, along with the back panel damage, minus the silver...he also did the killstripes as well...thanks Daz!!

    just a plug for Bobamaker, guys...my helmet was due to be done at the end of February beginning of march...due to his injury, he had to push back the completion date...however, he kept in touch with me, gave me updates, and got my helmet to me in tip top shape...i cant begin to explain the professionalism, dedication, and quality of work this man runs his business by...he is top notch, and everything he produces is worth every penny spent...YOU ROCK DAZ!!

    anyways, here are some pics of what i found in that box on my doorstep from the UK...i will post progress of the paint up i have left to do on it...

    Its a shame this lid went from artist to a "Paint by numbers" Fingerpaints guy.

    HAHAH JK big D. You'll do this lid justice man.

    It is a fun process of sizing the templates I would be curious what you have come up with as I am going through the same process myself. For the left ear cap I found that scaling the width to 582 pixels and the hight to 685 pixels, removing constraints and printing at fit on page seemed to work. Hope this helps some. Also for the graphite paper I would get boty black and white.

    Didn't you paint other lids before? If so do you still have paint left over for sale? I am insanely jealous of the work D and I want to kick out my BM lid too.
