    Much better! Both, to compare and the result!

    But I see one thing:) Too perfect sheets! I added in mine some bends and dents, rust and cracs;) More natural then they look.

    Good call. The rust is coming in the next part. I got some new candies for Christmas, so I’m going to try mixing up a good rust colour to add.

    Actually that could work lol. But I think it would just get spot left there rather than any cool bluing.

    Thank you Fred, I appreciate that very much. And you’re right, the mistakes I’ve made airbrushing have taught me a lot.

    Yes Sir. The light source is straight down. With hammered revers like this, the outer shadow is done in reverse, but the shadow on the dome is the same as the tear. With a little artistic licence.

    I’ve carried on playing around with this piece. Mixed up a rust colour using Custom Series Candies. It’s the first chance I’ve had to play with them and they’re very nice to use. The colour is mostly Candy Orange with a little Candy Gold and one drop of Candy Dark Apple Red. This was done with my Eclipse CS. [​IMG][​IMG]
