    More progress tonight. I started to shift the cape to color. First some sepia work, then I did a glaze of Candy pigment old gold. I went back over it with cream color detail work. A glaze of moss green. Then back and forth with cream and sepia until I got the effect I was after. I will be tweaking the details when the whole painting has been done. I already want to add some more highlights to the skull but I'm waiting until I finish the cape and the cards before I starting messing with final details.

    Its really hard to get accurate pictures. My art studio is extremely bright so looks a bit washed out in spots and the tailgate isn't a flat surface. I'll try to remember to take a picture during the day when I can turn off the spot lights. :)

    So, this is what the whole thing looks like at the moment.

    Comments or suggestions are always welcome. I'm always asking my family if they see anything that screams at them that they think needs to be fixed. I will also be adjusting my darks and highlights at the end.

    So true.

    More progress on the tailgate. I worked on the details on the cards. So this is the result. It's okay, but it was real difficult getting accurate line work with the bends of the tailgate.

    I'll be moving on to do some lettering next. Tonight I'm setting up the lettering to be cut on my plotter which will make it very easy to airbrush. Then, I will lower the project and finish the top part of the cape.

    Thanks Herb. It will be done soon. I'll be going over the entire thing at the end and putting in some more highlights too. The hard part is done. Hopefully, the rest will be quick and easy.
