Thanks dude, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. If it anything like your lyric suit paint ups its going to be awesome!!!!
 
Ok, after careful consideration and after the P1 paint knocking the crap outta my original paint up (a.k.a making it look cheap and nasty) I decided to take the ink back to my first cobra paint up. I plan on darkening some areas up, whitening the teeth and mandibles a lil on the tips and then adding in a link to the 'Cobra' snake by adjusting a design on the crest area. This is what I came up with....

Oh, almost forgot, once I started painting (well more towards the end) I decided that the lower mandibles were too dark and need 'fleshing' up

As an off-topic report - I have forced to sell the P1 paint up as I just don't have the room to house it.
 
Eh... they're okay.

LOL...I keed, I keed. Pretty flipping wicked design/ sculpting. Really dig the "serpent" look of the paint you did on that one.

The only suggestion I could make is tone down the "wet look" a bit (in my opinion). Other than that they look pretty bad ass man. Excellent work.

Thanks man, glad the serpent feel came across. The 'wet' look was mad using liquitex medium gloss and vanish. It was recommended to me by Skunk ages ago and think its used by various other members but will look into toning it down. Maybe watering it down a lil... thanks for the heads up
 
Wow J, the only word I can get in my head, this is absolutely awesome, oh more words.

Nice one bud, hope to see it in the flesh some time.
