Hey guys, been a lurker here for awhile now, been a member over at the RPF since the old days. Still, all the helmet painting threads over here really got me itching to try and paint a Fett lid myself. So I thought I'd show off my first attempt at doing a Boba Helmet. Some of you may have seen my thread over at the RPF, and I've really just copy/pasted it, but I wanted to share with the people who gave me the inspiration and motivation to take the leap and do this.
I've finished the helmet (for now I guess, nothing's ever finished with me, I always end up going back and messing with things) since these photos were taken and I will update with completed photos in the days to come....
I've never done this before, but I think it came out pretty good for a first attempt.
I keep forgetting to put the little connector dimple thingy on there, and the ears arent permanently attached just yet, but other than that, it's pretty much done.
Here's a teaser...
And the whole album
I know the right mandible is way off, I had a lot of trouble there. Many of the other details are more of an artistic interpretation, I didn't adhere so strictly to templates and original reference. I'm not that good yet.
Lemme know what you guys think! I'd love any advice or suggestions, all comments are welcome.
