    I told my former pastor that if his football team won the championship then I would airbrush him a picture. I've had this mocked up on the computer for a while now and have finally gotten time to start it. I'm trying to use up my CI paint on areas that don't require fine detail. I'll use Etac in areas requiring the finer detail.

    20"x16" clayboard
    CI and Etac paint
    Hp-CS and Micron SB

    I covered the board with easy release tape and traced the reference on to the tape.
    I first cut out the orange parts of the helmet and sprayed away.

    After removing the paw masking I had to mask on the outside and spray. Even though it looks white it actually has a blue tint to it on the reference.

    I decided to start on the background next. I removed the masking and then remasked the helmet. Sometimes doing out of focus objects is harder for me than in focus but I'm really pleased with how the blurred crowd turned out. Really close to the reference.

    I also started on the helmet stripes.

    Thank you Chérie. :)

    Probably hard to tell but I added the off white color to the stripe and the other white areas of the helmet. Also added shadows around some helmet holes that really adds depth. Also worked on the helmet snap.

    Thanks so much Base. Looks funky with the out of focus area plus the masking still left. Hopefully it'll start shaping up with each piece of masking that is removed.

    A busy day doing stuff outside but I did manage a little bit on this. Started on the face mask and strap.

    My progress is probably going to come to a crashing halt after today. I have a busy week ahead so I'm not sure if I'll have any time to airbrush so I really wanted to get some progress made today. I finished a really time consuming part which is the championship logo. My Cricut worked awesome for this but there is still a lot of masking with two different colors. My brain can rest at this good stopping point now. :D
    I'll try to finish the facemask, gloved hand holding up the helmet and then on to the two portraits.

    I was able to finish the facemask and glove so far today. I'll now reverse mask the quarterback and head coach and hopefully make some more progress tonight after working on my car.

    Thanks Basepaint. I started on the quarterback tonight and am having some difficulty. The details on the helmet are so small I'm going to have to come up with another idea than what I tried tonight.

    Wow I must be insane for adding such a small football player reference on this! Such tiny detail. I've got a lot of the quarterback finished and I'm quitting for the day. I'm getting a headache working on this. Maybe some more tomorrow.
