Enjoy,Daren

Next up are the samurai designs,oh the fun of challenge....


O.k well here it is ,my Inspired Big Red Predator bio_Original I was going to do a full reproduction, but in the end decided to just use the original as a guide and make my own design for the samurai designs. Overall paint used is below:

3 coats opaque black

6 coats opaque red

2 coats matte clear coat

light dusting of pearlized silver for target and vent port on right side

for the designs, drew out and stenciled, then airbrushed on

all paint used was createx water-base and airbrushed on using a Paache VL airbrush with size 5 needle and tip

Here are a few photos, Enjoy Daren

P.S this is my first (of many) airbrush project

Hey guys thanks for the nice words thus far.Well today I started on my second project, a P2 bio that has been sitting in the closet for quite a few years.I will post a topic after it is all complete,so I can show all of the pics at once.

That does look pretty good Daren
The stencils came out looking great...nice sharp edges man.
To be brutal tho I would have to say that your weathering looks a little fake...it's hard to acheive a good weathering effect with an airbrush if your not used to it....like me lol.
If your using water based paints it might be an idea to dab some watered down black on here and there (heavier in crevices and recesses) then buff it when it is dried....that way it will look worn and not just smudge and look like smudged paint lol.
I hope this helps.

Dont take me the wrong way....for your first airbrush job it came out great.....I have only done a little airbrush work myself and probably wouldn't be able to do a better job with the airbrush......so you SHOULD be happy with it.

Hey Skunk,

No worries dude,to get better I have to take a little bit of constructive critisim.

Thanks Daren

You sir have a really nice bio there! Big Red has always been one of my favorite fan Predators. His bio and your bio are exact twins. Nice work there bro!

That looks great for your first airbrush job. I know that airburshing is hard at first and you did great.

Hey guys,

Thank you so much for the nice words.It is definitely cool hearing that other fans think my first air brush job is well done.It definitely is a motivation booster.Don't get me wrong ,I will not let it go to my head.If one thing there is that I have learned recently ,that is this,once you start to get cocky about whatever it is that you are doing,that is when you get a wake up call.So I am taking this attitude,keep learning and practicing often.

Thanks again guys,Daren
