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...:lol: 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 (y)
