Default paint by ian

Sorry, I couldn't think of a more appropriate thread title...

I've not painted anything properly for ages, I had high hopes for this but I think I tried to do too much and in the end couldn't do some of it which was hugely frustrating but at least I've found limits early on. I tried to do the pin line super thin, 1mm, with a 0.5 mm inside line and shading. I'd put the mask on too thick and not cut hard enough so both pin lines came off at once. So next time I'll know more of what is going to be possible... well that's the theory anyway.

This shell was purposely simple as it's for a photo shoot, therefore no fancy colours or shading or even details to detract from the actual product. It's a shame I couldn't get the pin lines more exact but it's my first one in ages and the next one will be better !

Clean and Sharp just the way I like it, I really like how simplistic it looks yet really effective with the colour choice.

Far too kind, I should be pleased but at the same time I know what I'm capable of and I know this is not it so I'll stay grumpy and miserable until I've done something better

Honestly in the flesh it isn't all there.

Likewise, in the flesh not showing off at all, photographs hide a multitude of sins and therefore are our friend.

Thank you all, I've been on here for a few months telling you all what I think of your paint so I think you've been pretty kind to me or are you all just luring me into a false sense of security waiting for the next one ?

Actually this has done my head in quite a lot and it's boosted my confidence hearing what you have all said, if we ever meet in some sort of oOple RC paint off I'll be first at the bar buying everyone's drinks.

Looks great.
You obviously have a steady hand - if this is your 1st attempt then they are just going to get better and better

Thanks Andy, not exactly my first attempt... I had a custom paint business for ten years, I've done a fair few shells before but nothing for quite a long time.

I'm not used to painting backwards which I have to do on these though.

Cheers for your comments though

Sit behind a computer all day 'graphic designing'

If I could earn the same sort of money custom painting and being arty each day I would. After 10 years being stressed and barely surviving enough was enough... That said, I really miss it ! Computers are great but I have a proper passion for airbrushing, I don't care what it is, if I can get it to stop moving long enough to get some paint on it I'll do it.

Same as that. I think it is a hard way to earn a living. Unless you find a little niche.

I thought you'd want to paint that yourself ?

I've got a couple of 8th ones to do for now but I don't think I've got anything else coming so maybe ???

Hi Ian, I will have a shell for the new lazer when it arrives next week so I will send it your way. I will also then want a matching shell for my Vega so I guess you will have to do that too....

That's great, thank you, if they're the same it will it will be easier for me and probably a little cheaper for you if I do them at the same time because if I have a colour in the gun to do 1 I may as well do 2 or 3 or 4...

Let me know and I'll get it sorted out for you.
