Dark Rider Progress III (or IV? i don’t remember. XD)

17 Aug

Hello again! I’m posting this before work (I am INSANELY tired right now, even after a 45 min nap), but I really wanted to post about my DRS progress!
I feel quite satisfied so far, even though cardboard + gesso + sealer = a helmet as delicate as porcelain.
I started Insanity on Wednesday, and I’ve been horribly tired ever since.
I guess this weekend I might have to crank out my notes and study what we have been doing in class the past two days. 😦
I was falling asleep like crazy.

What my leg looked like after a long day of sanding and filling, as I pose over my bed like a albañil.

Sand, then fill, sand, then fill, sand then fill…. Sjidjvkfkthis was goddamn eternal. XD

After the first flat black coat! Finally it’s starting to look a little decent at this stage.
However, I had completetly forgotten the silver edges around the face and the spikes.
So I had to add those once the helmet was already painted.
:c What a dumbass.

The current paintjob! I really like how it looks so far. I used silver, turquoise, light blue, and sparkly nail polish to give the helmet a little more of a “fantasy” shine.
It does look a little “Rainbow Fish” in my eyes, but… The effect is damn pretty. XD
Under the light it shines many different colors!
