Here is phase 1 of the dent. :) The "tail" will come next.

I'm starting all that weird SE gunk all over the left side of the dome. I do this in a number of passes with different colors. This is the black pass. I'll be doing additional passes with the pale blue gray, and some white. (y)

The dome is pretty much complete now. There are a couple of details that I add with artist's pencils that won't be done until just before the final clear coat.

I'll be moving on to the cheeks next.

Looking a bit cheeky now. ;)
The right cheek is done for now. There's still the white blob on the outer cheeks to add, but I'll do that when I do the white thumbprints on the left side of the helmet.

Eric, as always, you rock!

I'm sure that painting a lineage helmet with all the fine details is more complicated than painting a clean helmet, because you have to perfectly line up all the major scratches, while on a clean helmet you have some artistic freedom. I hope I can update my stencils in the near future to better match the original scratches.

Thanks, Levi. :)
Yes, it may seem like a paradox, but it is somewhat harder painting one of these helmets for the reasons you mentioned. Nothing can really be out of place.
