    The first round of clearcoat is on and looks pretty good actually. I sprayed my usual three coats of high solid Glasurit clear. The masks I paint actually have more clearcoat on them than your car. Not kidding! Anyway, the next step is to wetsand it completely smooth with 600 grit paper and then spray...

    Here's a couple of pics of the backplate. I was going to do white lettering and logo on a blue background inside the ripped hole, but the client (thankfully) let me know that anything biosteel has to be red lettering on a white background. Also, the 'biosteel' word and logo had to be fully visible....

    The only thing left to do before clearcoat are the shading/shadows on the rips/tears. I used a transparent bluish black that was over-reduced to add some shadows. It's important not to overdo it and add too many. Less is more, and a little goes a long way. With that done, it's off for clear! The end...

    And now for the teeth. Since they've been cut out from the beginning, all I had to do was remove one at a time and spray the shading and shadowing on them using a mixture of root beer and black. Which is basically dark brown I guess. Leaving them white and using a light gray/black shading would have...

    Next stop: the gums. I wasn't sure what colour to make them. Most of the time I do them in pink or red (gingivitus) but with this colour scheme it might be too bright and draw your eyes to it. I don't want the gums to be a focal point so I decided to paint them in a bluish gray colour. I just used a...

    And now it's on to the background, which is really the foreground since the monster is coming out of it. Anyway, I masked up the monster and claws and unmasked the horns and parts to be yellow. I forgot to take pics of it, but I'm sure you can figure out what it looks like. The bottom part is just Nashville...

    The final step is shading the darkest areas, using the same pthalo blue that has been darkened with some added black. I also switched to my Iwata Custom Micron airbrush which gives me consistent hairline ability.

    I'm basically done with the monster face at this point. It's fairly dark, but the clients' gear is Nashville predators colours (navy blue) and he wants it to match. Or at least be very close.



    And now the claws! I've unmasked them and start playing with forms using a light...

    So I've unmasked the mouth area and sprayed it with 50/50 mixture of pthalo blue and black. I then took pure black and fogged it in the center, since that's the darkest area of the mouth. It's not very noticeable (if at all) most of the time but once it's cleared and in the right light the edges will...

    With the transfer tape on I sketched out the design and then cut out the eyes, nose, rips/tears/ teeth, horns and claws. I basically just cut out the parts that have contrasting colours, like the horns, and areas that I want clean definition from, like the teeth.

    The next step will be to...
