I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

Here is an almost finished bike... just need to put the spear on his sholder pad and give him a royal blue knee pad. I'm just way to tierd... 2:15 am is way past my bed time! Please take a look and tell me what you think!

I mentioned this over in the painting challenge thread, but I think that you should pick out the trim on the bike armor plates in white as well. I will give it some more definition and tie it into your color scheme. Looking good so far but like Ultra said some closer shots would help to see the smaller details.

alright guys I did the trim in white added extra detail and cleaned it up a bit... Think I need a finer point brush and better paints.. I use the cheep acrylics from walmart. Somewhere I read to put dish soup in your paint to make it more like inks? Any one know if that works? Any way tell me what you think! C&C welcome!

I have a bottle of the exact same paint you used lol.

Future floor wax works well and you can use windex for airbrushing thinking so it should work here as well.
