    Looks good for a first bucket. The funny thing is youll get better at it. Progress is a never ending kind of thing.

    I like it alot. the deco on the dome is different. I'd grime it up a little bit though, like in the cracks and corners. The deco makes it look like the helmet is well worn and taken care of, but theres always a little dirt you can't get to.

    I dig the painting design on the dome. And yeah-- even if you're going for a nice, clean look, I'd say just a smidge of grime in the corners would make it come to life!

    The pics. weren't working, and when they aren't showing, a red X, in a white box shows up. They are working now though, I like your helmet, very Jando-esq. But I love the dome details, reminds me of a helmet straight out of Open Season!

    Applying with a sponge is probably the best way, no streaks. Make sure you use an artist's natural sponge though as the cells are much smaller and you don't risk having little circles in your paint.

    thanks for sponge advice novalltalon, i have the sponge now.so i will probably fini**** this weekend.
