    1/100 Barbatos Lupus fm (my first full paint)

    I started watching Gundam building Gunpla last summer. In December I decided to give the Barbatos a pre order and since I liked the design of the kit, a full paint. I had only done some lining and minor coloring with Gundam markers prior to this, so I was looking forward to really tweaking the base. It just so happened that I bought an airbrush setup for my other artistic endeavors around the same time I was introduced to Gunpla. This was going to be a learning experience for sure...

    So I started with the inner frame, priming and detailing as I went along. I brushed a few layers of translucent florescent green on the eye piece to help it really pop. I only had a handful of paint at the time so I ended up really rocking the gold a lot...

    Everything white got pre shaded and faded back in. The reds are multiple layers of translucent over dark base. The blues are a mix of luck and good beers. I used Tom Gore's Bloodlines paints by Createx for this paint-up... well except for the gold, that is iridescent gold from Golden High Flow acrylics.

    I gave it a couple thin coats of matte acrylic clear but it needs more with my new needle setup before I can really weather and draw out the panel lines... but I still took some nice photos because it's so damn pretty!

    I'll post the rest when it happens. I'm busy with another custom at the moment.

    I started lining and weathering. I was working on another build for an amateur customization competition that was holding me up.

    Time for grime!

    Feeling good about the base shades and grime. This has been clear coated to seal in the work so far. I'll head back in and add additional layers after I ruminate on the work thus far.
