I finished the right side of the brow. Let's get to some mandiblization! Is that a word? :unsure:

You should start your own dictionary, because you already have some technical terms specific to painting and/or parts of the costume.

If we didn't hijack one would assume all his pictures were the same!

The only thing that changes in those photos is the background, but even then, maybe he shot lots of photos of the same helmet with different background to fool us.

The right mandible is done! Yahoo!
This means that all painting is finished on the helmet itself. I'll work on the ears next, and then final weathering.
I'm including my usual collage that shows how I build the detail working topically.

May I ask how the quality of Viva Fett's kit compares to Wasted? I've wanted to get the Fugly kit for some time, but I'm a bit hesitant without knowing much about this new Viva maker.

It's a really nice kit. The helmet shell is strong without being too thick, and the resin parts like the ears are cleanly cast with only minimal cleanup required.
This is the first Viva Fett cast I've worked with, and will soon be doing a second.
I wouldn't have any issues recommending it if someone wanted to get one.

Ok, confession time! I actually was further ahead on this helmet before SW Celebration than I had shown. ;)
Now that I'm back into my normal routine, let's get caught up on photos.
Here are the ears in various stages of work.
All of the final weathering and assembly is finished as well, and I'll put up some pics of the completed helmet later today!

Painting at this rate, eFX would have done a better job if they hired you to do the factory painting of the PCR helmets. As always, you do an amazing job, Eric!
