I've got some good news and some bad news, bad news is we are suspending that test indefinitely. The good news is I've got a much better test for you now........

Such awesome painting on such an awesomely creepy bust! =D

I really love how you made the skin look like chitin where the colors are being reflected by highlights... and the eyes, so shiny Oo

I'm not really familiar with painting techniques and equipment used, but I am gonna work on sculpting and painting myself soon.. and I'm just curious about how you made the pattern on the eyes, and gave it such a smooth shiny reflective surface as well! :ohnoes:

used a stencil to get the eye pattern, then coated it with super high gloss.
