Its been a while since I updated;

Been spending a lot of time working on soft parts, and also Megacon with the BVC. Here are the gauntlets, now weathered. It wasn't easy especially since the gauntlets have some dark tonal blues and grays already. Thoughts?

The green coloring is the reflection from the grass, go figure.
