    Apr 12, 2007, 12:07 PM - Mrgr8ness bucket complete-with comparisons! #1

    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.

    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.
