    Currently working on this monster of a bust, mainly because I need to get it out of my cupboard, it takes up too much room!

    Airbrushed up 'til now. I’ve been going round and round a bit – either getting the shading or losing the texture. This is the best compromise I can find. Not what I aimed for but I’m accepting that he wants to be red, like a bloody Hulk.

    Will stop using my airbrush now. I’ve been trying out a Sotar 20/20 which I bought in the Badger birthday deal. It feels cheap, like an airbrush equivalent of a Ford Econoline, but I actually quite like it and it worked well for fine lines.

    That’s pretty cool. Not my thing but looks like a beast of a paint!

    Thanks, Nap!

    Yes, at 1/6 scale, he is pretty big. I've had to relocate a few other figures to make room for him.
    I do like working on larger scale figures though because of the opportunity to add texture.

    @Mike Stevens
    Thanks for the compliment!

    Great job!
    I'm often a victim of what you've described - adding a lil color, adding color... UGH! Too much. ;)
    The number 1 thing I still have to learn is when I think it's not enough, it's enough. ;)
