    Hi Jason ,

    As usual, your work is exceptional. I really like everything you do.
    Your green's are always very nice.
    Your style... very distinct.

    I hope you can make it to Atlanta in Feb. Would like to see this one
    in person.

    Take care

    Robert, Nap, Guy, Andrea, Tony, Derek, Marc, John, Paul, Stiff, Xenofon, David, and Dee: Thank you all for your kind comments!

    Guy - after missing '08 Tulsa, I definitely plan to make '09 Tulsa and will bring this one along.

    Dee - Atlanta is "iffy" but I'd like to make it.

    Paul - the crest of the helmet is just black, drybrushed with black + warm colors such as brown, red leather, and some yellows (yes, you can drybrush with acrylics - not as easy as with oils, but can be done). Since taking the photos at the beginning of this post, I have washed the crest with a thin veil of black, making it look much better. This toned down the drybrushed highlights and unified everything. For the metal, I used a product called Rub n Buff, available at craft stores such as Michaels here in the US. This can be thinned with mineral spirits and brushed on. They have several shades of gold available and I used "Antique Gold." I shaded with Raw Umber/Sepia. As you know, I used oils for the leopard skin on Murat, but I decided to try my hand at a leopard skin using acrylics this time. My palette consisted of White, Desert Yellow, Ochre Brown, Red Leather and German Camo Black Brown. The spots are black + red leather. The area inside the spots is just a darker, more orange version of the base color (more red leather and GCBB).

    Jason,
    thanks for sharing not only images of your work, but how you did the Helmet and the materials you used.

    I like the results so much, Ive made a note of how you have achieved your results, so I can try also.
