Update 5/1/2013

Its Saturday and more time spent on the project, Dry brushed the rear of the dreadnought and glazed it to bring the colours together more.
I think it looks dull and boring if its just one colour on a flat surface. We are not painting a wall here, but a machine of war that is in combat
in a dusty enviroment where explosions have been going off near by and falling buildings so its not going to be clean looking. There is only war.
It also gives it more life and is easier to see in the darkness of the carnival.
I also have been working on one of the insignias that will go onto the costume, Pictures below.





mounting board was used to make the insignia.


Now has been sprayed gold, This will go onto the back of the dreadnought.


Blue drybrush is put on to give depth and battle worn look, dreads are relics and have been about for a while.


Time to put on the glaze to bring the colours closer together.


Galze added, its hard to see here but the colours are closer together and a haze of shine too.

As you can see it adds more character to the costume, Looks like a giant figure you would paint.


The effect looks cool from a distance where the crowd are going to be in the carnival.

That is really amazing. Looks great. How long have you been working on this stuff? When are you thinking it will be completed? Apologies if I missed it somewhere.

Update 7/1/2013

Tonight I got home from work had a bit to eat and started work on the dreadnought costume.

I Highlighted the rear of the dreadnought as it will be dark in places in the carnival and wanted
my costume to show the panels and angles of the dreadnought to its full protential, and also
going with the plan of making it look like a giant painted figure that we all know.
Secondly I carried on the work to the missile launcher sponson and fitted some of the parts
I made together.




Highlighted and fitted the black airflow ducts. I thinks it looks alot better now.
