    Jul 3, 2008, 7:46 AM - First attempt at painting ROTJ armor (pic intensive) #1

    So thanks to Darth Miller for helping me get the base colors on I added the topical damage. What do you guys think. I am a little dissapointed with the left knee. I might retry that one.

    I was schooled by Darth Miller who said When displaying the costume the Pre-Pro left knee got mixed up with the other costume and so that was how it was displayed. DM chime in if I am wrong, please.

    And After:


    Tell me what ya think!
