Here we go again ..... painter's HELL!! Here is one of those awesome ESB "Movie Accurate Buckets" that's all the rage :D

I started the paintjob on Saturday, and it's about 35% completed.

Here are a couple of pics in two different lighting conditions. As usual, bad camera :lol:

By the time this puppy is done, I should have received a really nice camera for Christmas (at least I hope) :lol:

35% done 'eh? Man, that already looks better than 90% of the 100% done helmets I've seen! :) You are one gifted fella.

Mine's still in the box :lol: I'm lacking a decent workspace at the moment but hope to chip away at it slowly.

Yeah man, you disgust me ;)

Mine's still sitting in the box next to my new gauntlets, which totally rock, and waiting until everything dies down from the holiday excitement. I can't wait to get started on them.

Have you posted a tutorial for your painting technique? When I saw it up close at SDCC it looked awesome and complex, but at the same time very technically applied. I'm hoping that you can give me an insight into how you do it so, apparently, easily. Mine always look so impressionistic and vague. Yours are crisp and look truly chipped/weathered.

Great helmet, Chris,
If anyone can give this awesome helmet the paintjob it deserves, it's you :)

Lookin' good bud.

What method are you using to apply the damage? Are you going metal colour then layering the other paints on, or doing a base coat and applying the damage topically?

If my new gauntlets don't show up today, I'll start painting my bucket! :)
