These pics were taken with no flash and a pillow blocking the direct light so there is no glare but it washes out the color a little.

Almost there, added some duct tape around the biceps to make them flow into the arm better (hope that doesnt backfire on me later on).

First added a light layer of "Metallic Inca Gold" then a light layer of "Metallic Solid Bronze" for the dirt look.

Then went back over with a layer of silver. Couldn't see much else I wanted to do to it so I'm calling it finished.

I think the mouth is looking a little on the bright-red side -- you might want to mute it down a little bit. Otherwise, I think you're off to a good start so far.

I know what it's like to be working with just primary colors and trying to mix the paint -- it's difficult to get exactly the color you want, because you keep having to mix by trial and error. For my next mask paintup (which is in progress), I'm going to work with a few different hues that are relatively close to each other, so I can have some subtlety. That way, there's more gradation between colors, and you won't have such a sharp differentiation when you go from the base skin color to the details and the sides.

In the end, though, it's down to your artistic vision. I don't know if I'm giving you more artistic freedom, or just confusing you. :D

Thanks for the kind words guys.

So yeah, the mouth is very bright right now, but I'm gonna go in with a marker and make some veins, then go over that with a darker red...hope it turns out the way I think. Bout to start here in a little while. Should have an update tomorrow.

Got some more done. I'm getting so far away from the elders colors it's rediculous, my mask is starting to look like a reptile. I might just end up brushing grey over the whole mask and start again.

Yeah I added some blue veins inside the mouth with a fine paint brush but I've added a couple of layers of color inside the mouth and they got mostly covered. I still can't get the mouth color exactly right.

Got a little more done, I'm almost calling this thing finished. Painted the horns on the head and jaws, added another layer of dots on the head and worked a little more on the mouth. Still not 100% happy with the mouth but I think once I put the PermaWet on there and it starts shining it will look a little better. And I couldn't get the colors to perfectly match the P2 elder but then I remembered that it's my first paintjob so I won't beat myself up too much. There's always more masks out there that need painting :D

I think I'll lightly spray the horns with black or brown to darken them just a bit then I'll start working on the teeth. Quick question though, since the teeth are resin do they need to be primered first or will the permawet keep the color on there?

Alright, I added a mist layer of brown onto the horns to dull them down a little. Then I painted the teeth, first by spraying the teeth with a light brown and darker around the bottoms, then went back over with a light layer of yellow, then another light layer of white. I'll probably get around to glueing the teeth to the mask tomorrow. I then added a layer of Permawet to the entire mask. I'm kinda sad that I'm almost done with this mask, I was just getting the hang of airbrushing and mixing paint. Can't wait to add some dreads to this baby though.

Dude,

Amazing. I'm thinking of buying an airbrush kit but am a bit worried to mess something up.

Well done on this B)

Thanks Predanator, and if you have any artistic skill at all it's pretty easy using an airbrush. And you can always repaint if you mess up too bad.

More Pics!

Added the teeth, then realized that the left jaw hangs down a bit further than the other jaw and make the bottome teeth look really ******. Any idea how I can fix this?
