    I forgot to make a thread here... whoops

    Anyway, I'm doing like 1 panel a night, and here's where I'm at



    Put the green coat on....

































    Tonight, I'm masking my cheeks, and tomorrow (after painting) I'll be starting the back panels...

    Nice work man. Interesting seeing someone not start with the back panels...

    And ...correct me if I'm wrong...

    But did you tape the whole thing, then trace down the stencils, and then exacto them off? I don't fully understand the process


    **Quick question, rather random - how are you getting your pictures to be right in the post? Every time I'm posting I get links to the picture, not even thumbnails.

    Yeah, I did mask the whole thing, lol. I hadn't found a place near me that carried masking fluid, then I did, so I switched half way through. Looks okay though, right?

    And I upload to photobucket, Edit Picture, size the "Small" number down to 500 which usually drops the other one to 669, and then "save," and "replace original." After that, on the right there are four links you can copy... use the IMG one

    YES! Of course it looks cool man. Pretty rad to see a different take on the process

    So in the thread, when you post an image, you aren't going to 'insert image' are you?

    Because no matter what I do, Insert from Computer, or Insert from URL, I still get links.

    I've ever tried editing via HTML...and that doesn't work. It should, but it doesn't.


    Wait...I think I figured it out....
