Here's another one from today. I hate painting flames, but I think this one came out alright. I also tried doing the burned effect originially done by jonmills. Also proud of it.

I think I am getting addicted to painting bodies, or maybe its the paint fumes

Tell me what you all think.

Gotta say you're getting better and better... and judging by your progress getting more comfortable with it.

Pretty brave shading with white.

thanks buddy
still have alot to learn, but been about 5-6 months since the last paint job I did. Still need to get the hang of thinning properly to get a better flow and do better shading.
Got alot of inspiration from you pros on here.

Good job. Just a tip... Use transparent black for the drop shadows on the flames and stuff and bring the psi down a bit and the shadows will look more realistic.. Less is more.

thanks for the tip, do you reduce the transparent black or shoot it straight?

Also how do you guys do it with the jconcepts bodies that have the blue film on the outside of the bodies?
I can't stand not being able to see the right color because of the blue tint of the film.

do yourself a favor, and pick up a 4oz bottle of Auto Air 4011 flash reducer.

I reduce almost every paint I use, even transparents. Keep in mind, if you over reduce, the paint will splatter, rather than stick.

good work man!

ps, I hate JC for that reason, but always test on scrap lexan that is clear before you lay down color on anything.

Hopefully those bodies do not weigh as much as they look....

...looks like the back ends were formed from concrete(assuming that was the look you were going for, if so you nailed it!!)

You killed your last couple of bodies!! They look great, and keep up the great work!!
