Nice paint app!  Loving the attention to detail in the weathering.  Well done!

Paints apps are looking great really like the green design.

Loving the positive response! :)

I'll be working on my backplate over the weekend, thinking of doing a green pattern similar to this one but in reverse.

That, or three isosceles triangles similar to these which span from the top with the points going towards the bottom. With the one in the middle a bit longer than the side ones. I'll have to see what looks better in drawings :D

I'll have to do something nicer with the hexagon center piece, it looks a bit bland for now.

I'll keep you guys posted!

my 2 cents - negative version of the front for the back plate and the diamond I'd cut a rectangle groove in it and detail the middle, kinda like a dog tag

Hey Vezril, I just went back to review the photos again, love the over spray backdrop, Unibrew hmm, nice to see a vod with taste  ;D

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the black/brown washing, Kelan has a nice tutorial on it if you need.

Alright! I'll look at doing that, thanks vod! I'll draw out the other pattern I had in mind later today.

Hehe, love a nice Unibrew; painting in my kitchen right now so had to use the spare cardboard I had to cover, well just about everything! I'll look around the forums for Kelan's tutorial, I've been currently doing it my way with positive results but some more insight would be good :)

For the backplate I was thinking of something along this, what do you guys think? Oh and ignore the black lines, they were reference points ;)

Also, considering adding the Mythosaur in one of the bottom corners.

I don't want to influence your art/concept, but I would remind you that your collar will line up with your backplate, have you considered continuing the design you have on the collar towards the back?

Perhaps a couple segmented stripes?

No no! Go right ahead! I'm an engineer, not much of an artist! This is also why I want second opions ;)

I was actually thinking of adding slight curves on the chest pieces but now that you mention it I think continuing what I did on the neck plate towards the backplate might be a nicer idea. I like the idea of segmented stripes though not sure how you see it in your mind. I came up with something like this:

In " my mind  ;D" the stripes were vertical. It's really up to you buddy, wait to see what the other members suggest.

Where is Niabi? He would have some good comments... So would Kelan for that matter where is everyone?  :P

I was going to say that I liked the first idea better...
But then I looked back at your collar plate and I think the second concept looks awesome with it!!!

Loving this build!

My vote's on the second, striped arrangement.  It looks rather snazzy. :D

Tact offered a suggestion and I think it has merit, what do you guys think of this? It still follows the app I did on the collar piece like on the second design I had. I'm honestly not sure what I prefer more, but I do find this to be more, uhm, logical when it comes to alignment with the collar piece.

personally liking the V pattern, it looks more like what someone would have with the front detailing as it crosses over in the ab plate
