Sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to this sooner, I was out today because my Mom had a Day Surgery. Everything went well though.
Thanks everyone for the kind words
Appolo_50 - Thank you. The base colors are all sprays (custom by Sherwin Williams). I had mixed the paint with testors enamels originally, and then took it down and had them matched.
Well Paid Killer - You know good and well that I don't
Mirax H - A machine ? Wow, I kinda like the sound of that. Seriously though, since this whole project started almost a year ago (8.5 Months), it seems that I have become more machine than man, twisted and evil Thanks Mirax
Del Fargazer - Thanks !
MaxPlague - Looks like you gotta lot to do buddy, the those gauntlets and helmet and all, better get crackin
journeymanprotector - Too kind man. But thanks As far as a tutorial goes, I've been asked before, and it's still not a real easy thing to do, because I wing it most of the time. No two buckets alike and all. I just use plenty of Ref CD Pics and lots of teeny weenie brushes, and real tired eyes, with many headaches I use a combination of custom mixed enamels, and custom mixed acrylics for the weathering and damage topically. I dry brush most of the weathering colors, and use whitewash, to mute/brighten colors. I cut small low tack masking tape strips to mask off areas when possible to get crisp when warranted. The main ingredient, is actually Scitch Bright Pads. After I detail a section of the helmet, I use a scotch bright pad lightly over the mettalic and layered grayish areas, and it actually brings everything together while actually wearing away the edges of surrounding colors exposing a more natural random effect. Probably sounds crazy I know Perhaps after I finish, I can make the time to type one up with some pics.
