Anja's M-DSB Helmet WIP
« on: Apr 28, 2010, 04:40 PM »
Thought I'd get some pics up of what I have been working on...
The renowned M-DSB Mercenary  ;D

Here's it primed (Many flying dremel blades later...)

Silver base

Trashbag Mando!

Weathering tests (Toothpaste and black eyeshadow)


Oh, and a very rough concept sketch.... Colors: grey, white with black designs.
The hawk wing design is a nod to my clan MANDA'GALAAR!

Thank you both.

I'm thinking of using a turquoise or dark blue mirrored visor (I have T-visor.com currently) so if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd much appreciate it.

I'm looking at purchasing some of this tint for my winter kit's visor: http://www.amazon.com/Gila-XCB246-X6-5-35-Xtreme-Blu/dp/B0006301FK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1272505418&sr=1-1  Having not tried it before I can't say anything about it other than it looks purty. lol

I used the gila mirrored tint they sell at Home Depot on my visor. Gila sells a tint called Xtreme Colors in Red, Blue and Green: http://www.gilafilms.com/Automotive/automotive-xtreme-colors.htm.

It was a little tricky to apply but once you got it on, it looks great.

Can't wait to see your bucket done!

Am I going in the right direction here? The intention is a slightly weathered look, well taken care of but has seen some action.

How are you getting the "burned" look on the edges of your weathering?  It looks amazing!
