I finally finished painting the helmet!! :D It was a long process but I'm pretty happy with how it came out! I've gotten so invested in it that I didn't want to give it back lol. In these pix the helmet has not been clear coated yet. So I gave it to the bf to take care of that. Ill take moar pix after its clear coated. I can't wait bc i know it will look way better. The paint dried matte so some of the colors didn't look as bright and vivid as when the paint was wet.
Finishing this was definitely a great satisfying and rewarding feeling. Painting takes way longer than digitally painting and I've spent most of my life as an artist doing digital or only sketches. I learned a ton since I didn't take any painting classes so experimenting with colors was interesting. :) Stay tuned for the final final helmet results and pix!
