    Default Dragon themed HemiStorm Penta Losi 5ive

    A few days before I went on a honeymoon I finished up another shell. Same recipe as always: masking tape, rattlecans, coffee and cigarettes.

    I have taken as many pictures as I could during the process for those who find the step by step interesting. The guy I did this body for has a dragon tattoo on his arm, and wanted tribal flames over the sides. I positioned the dragon in a way so it looks like it is holding on to the roof. On to the pics, any questions, just shoot!

    WOW Chris, Super COOL !!!

    You really need to get yourself an airbrush, if you're doing this with masking tape and rattle cans it really would take you to the next level. Love the flames on this and the dragon is so detailed and the little QR tag is brilliant

    How many hours do you reckon it took ?

    Thank you Ian! I have no idea how many hours this one took, I reckon well over 40 though. As soon as I do decide to airbrush I will hit you up with a message for some much needed advise.

    Not too much, but when it comes to detailed work I think it might be a better idea to hit up someone with a plotter and an airbrush. My lines turn our crisp, but you can always see that they're handcut, and not everyone likes that. Perhaps Ian can help out on this one!

    I can draw stuff out and cut things, I'll be a lot quicker with that than painting too

    You'd need to have drawings for me to copy though, the original concept is where the time is. I'll always cut you masks if you want to do it Chris
