I think he means if you planned to paint the rest of the gun, it'd be hard to not screw up the painting... Well, unless you put a clear coat over it and used that masking paint for models.

Nope, just rub vasoline over it, then paint. The top coat will rub right off with the vasoline. I use it to replace masking tape now on small projects.

Groove, did you chew on your Crossbow?

I personally think you should paint it a nice navy grey or something.

It's alright Groove, we all chew on our nerf guns once in our life.

By the way, how's the progress coming along? I kinda am itching to see the next update.

Here's the latest update:

Here's the zoom shot:

Her legs are still WIP. The pink gave me more trouble than I thought it would, mainly because the first coat of pink was too dark compared to the reference picture. I had to put on lots of lighter colors to soften it up. It looked like she was wearing some kind of pink leather bondage shit. I touched up some parts on her face, namely the shine on the cheek.

She's almost done, people! Woot!

That looks awesome Groove. It's coming out very nicely. Ever consider putting little stick figures(instead of airplanes) on the side of your X-bow to indicate all the awesome kills you've gotten?

As a matter of fact, I have. Regular kills would cover up my entire Crossbow considering its usage, but I might consider slapping on some skulls or other icons onto the side. I need to do some more research on how the nose art for bombers though before I do anything like that.

I know her face needs some work. Mainly the eyes, they need to be darker in and around the pupils. That damned hat of hers...I drew it askew, so it's still bothing me. That and the phone. Infact most of the white around the picture is bothering me to some degree.

EDIT:: Uploaded higher quality pics. Enjoy.

Heh, thanks.

A bit OT, but I'm only making a 700 point force so I wanted those 9 bikes I have to look unique, so each of them is going to be unique, muddy, dirty - giving them a real rugged feel.

She is ALMOST done, final update to follow.

Haven't decided yet. I'm probably going to scrape away the outlying white primer so that its just the pinup.

It's wrong when I get the same feeling when I ogle the duct tape on some of my guns... right? :P All joking aside, that's a pukka painting on that crossbow. Excellent work. Just don't lose any more chick-fil-a cups in with your paint supplies.

She's done, folks.

Here she is in all her glory. As you can see I've begun to tidy up around the painting, and then comes the whole sealing part.

Nice job! The only major difference I notice is that the hole around the arm for the dress is not curved it has sharp angles. Do you understand I don't actually know what thats called on a dress.
