The helmet might be too muddy and brown, but I can't be sure.

Any chance you could make templates of all the plates? They'd be SO helpful for other TMs. And they're out of this world! (Literally)

I'm going for that extremely muddy look, in some references you literally see them in mud, I did make templates for what I have made so far. going to see how I can make  downloadable like the Boba and jango templates.

Some good images showing the level of dirt and mud they were fighting in
the trick is how can we bring what we see in the comic to a real world equivalent
IMO its muddier in the real world version of  TM who was in that enviorment

trying something out to add more texture to the mud, I want to add mud to the visor because how would you explain a filthy helmet and a crispy clean visor, other than windshield wipers? :laugh:

I mixed cinnamon with acrylic paint, the cinnamon causes lumps similiar to how mud would look and dry on hard surfaces, I used an old visor to test it out on
I'm pretty happy with how it came out, I plan on adding it on top of the rest of the weathering for more realism and depth

MUD!!!!


I decided to go with Brown Oxide and Burnt Sienna, the Sienna was used very lightly just to add some contrast
I do plan on doing the same process on all the plates, but I will wait till i get the soft parts and adjust any shaping
that may be needed,  as I don't know how that weathering will react to heat even if it is on the backside of the plates.

Ok so after really looking at it and with the advice of a trusted builder, we agreed that it was too much mud and you could not see the green of the cheek and the blue on the mandibles, so i dialed it back a bit.

Though I liked it before, I think I like seeing the colors show through a bit more. Those paint tests were really helpful. I might save those in an imgur post for future reference. Those all look realistic and give us some color hues to work through.

Great work as always brother!

I would agree with Riley - changing it up so that more of the colors show through was a good choice. As it was before - it was too muted but the change up really shows off the colors from the comics while also showing that it's muddy. It's definitely more realistic the way you have it painted now. Excellent work and looking forward to seeing more progress on this.

Also - those shins are spot on!

Looks good to me.

I'm curious if we can spot any other additional details on the gloves that we can add to our upcoming update of this character.

I took a look at all the images from all 4 books just now and this image is the only image that shows something other than smooth unlined leather light to medium grey in description, in this image the extra detail looks like badly drawn hand guards or another piece of fabric over the back of the hand, In my opinion this one image isn't enough to add that in considering that no other images show that detail again.
