    Custom ROTF IronHide Scratched Paint Job

    Hi again! My first try over the weekend in brushing to give damage effect. I choose IronHide to give a worn out scratched paint all over his body to give a sense of weight and battleworn condition. Like to hear from you guys if i have achieve what i set out to do :) 

    Thanks for viewing. More pics can be found here
    Comments most welcome!

    That looks great, he looks like a war vet, but with that amount of damage he should have broken windows on his shoulders :)

    Your first time painting, you say? The paint apps look very cleanly applied for an experienced painter. :)  Great work here! I agree with Hakka on adding some cracks to the windows.

    I think he meant first time painting the damaged effect. This better not be a first repaint :)

    Yes Hakka! This is not my first repaint. Much of what i'm doing is through self taught and experimentation. But here in radicon there is a library of stuff i can refer to, so it helps. This is my fourth repaint, but its the first time i'm doing damaged effect and its loads of fun!

    Woah, great suggestions on the cracked windows guys, it totally slipped my mind. I've never done damaged glass before, but i'll give it a shot. Maybe i'll post an update in a couple of days. Thanks for the advice :)

    The scratch work looks a little too overworked, in particular the scratches on the side. The mud/rust and nose scratches look great but something about the some of the side scratches feel a little artificial.

    Overall though, it looks great!
