    finally some updates (pic heavy)

    after long wait i have some progress on my helmet. keeping with the under water theme i started working on some detail work. still working on a paint scheme {which any input would be ok } and sence we had a hurricane/tornados three in fact went through my county two days ago i thought why not work on something. sorry for the rambling but here are the pictures (if you cant tell what it is there suppose to be barnacles)

    paint scheme wise, man blue seems to be the only good color following maybe white and black?

    this is an awsome helmet. can;t wait to see the armor.. sea weed for wookie braids? or perhaps for a cape

    Looks cool! But I think you went a litlte overboard (excuse the pun) with the amount of barnacles.

    I have a suggestion for your general paint scheme. This might be a dumb idea, but after reading about your start on an underwater Mando, I had a are moment of clarity... I was thinking about taking a cue from nature, underwater predators to be specific. If you look at the colors of a Great White shark, you'll notice a dark upper body/back, and a light colored lower half/underbelly. Looking down from above the dark blends in with the sea floor and looking up from below the light colors blend in with the surface etc. I thought maybe you could try something along those lines.

    Also, I like the barnacles-very creative! That would mean that your Mando spends more time underwater than out of it to have growths like that, huh?

    i dont think he spends to much time underwater its more camo to blend in to the back ground any way here are some pics of the gloves im going to use i dont know what the one on the left hand means but it had a sea horse on it
