    Mrgr8ness bucket complete-with comparisons!

    Well I finally put the finishing touches on last night. Still need to add the blue marker I tried my best to duplicate the AOSW exhibit. Its a little off in some areas, but not too shabby for mostly doing freehand besides the base colors. It came out far better than I was hoping for. Hopefully this will motivate someone else to get their AOSW done

    I know some of the angles are a little off, but it was late-

    I've just used a whole box of Kleenex mopping the mess up I made looking at those pics. Absolutely stunning. You must be very proud of that job.

    Re: Mrgr8ness bucket complete-with comparisons!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Its nice to get compliments, especially from some of the highly respected artists on here. Its an MSH-1 that I started probably 8 months ago, a nice sculpt overall. Now I haven't worked on it for all that time straight, just a little here and there. I have a lot more respect for the guys like AFFO$, Spideyfett, Evan, etc that paint for people on a regular basis and mass produce fine works of art. This stuff takes a lot out of you. I was thinking of picking up another bucket to do, since I learned so much from this one and feel I can improve in some areas. It will be awhile though, I'm exhausted. I am actually still going to touch up a few areas, mostly between the dent and triangles. Gotta bring out a few of those scratches a little more. I will be starting a new thread soon, as I install the electronics in this bucket-fans and rangefinder circuit, so watch for it.
