i really like the design. i like that you outlined it with black as well. maybe some weathering would help it out, since you are not totally satisfied with it.

why dont you try the silver with a custom made paint made from the other colours mixed? ive done this before with a shrunken head i made i hated all of the skin tones so i mixed them all together and it came out great :)

I am in agreement that the colors chosen are pretty damn sweet and LOVE the pattern. Per weathering, I would take a look at what the 501st guys do to weather up their Stormtrooper armor with scuffing it, etc.w

The last one looks great. You can never go wrong with a light black washing as well. That should really bring out the lines in the sculpt. You have to be careful if you go this route though since the base is white. The right lenses can really set off a bio in my opinion too. Im far from a pro, but thats my 2 cents.

i used a black wash for my Giggles(white base color). some of it was kind of a dry brush technique.

put a coat of matte crystal clear on it ..then start your weathering or black wash ( black acrylic paint with lots of water .sponge it on ..then blot it off with a paper towel) you will protect that flat white

yeah, i put a clear coat on everything before i black wash. some times i use matte and sometimes i use gloss. depends on what look i am going for.
my technique varies. sometimes i use a brush and put straight paint on then immediately wipe it off. sometimes i use a bit of water and other times a lot of water. it depends on how much of the paint you want to stick. more water= less paint.
most people use sponges a lot, but i am pretty comfortable with brushes.
