    Nobody's ESB Helmet, Mostly finished **Update

    Looking good!!
    Personaly, I think I would weather it some more.
    I think the red needs to be toned down a bit.
    I would hit it with some chalk dust and dirty it up and a little black and grey misting that is ever sooo light.

    Yeah, its really looking nice. I agree w/ everything Lynn said. Definately need to tone down the red some. probaly could use more weathering, but everything you've done so far is great.

    Awesome Job!!....
    I agree with all so far, More Weathering..
    Question? Are you using the topical effects for your silver scratch marks, and if so what are you using?

    Thanks for the feedback, for some reason the red is way brighter in the pictures than in person. I am using the topical method, it's"Tamaya" chrome paint.

    Most digital cameras have issues with representing red accurately so that is not suprising at all.

    plus when you black wash the whole helmet, everything will tone down a notch.

    nice work so far!
