    mario: thanks Mario! long time no see πŸ™‚

    lensman: thanks man, I lucky I didnt mess it up completely. The background is a yoga mat and light is from an SB600 bounced off the ceiling.

    DarkWolf80s: oh thanks! I was surprised the paint looked even and flat after it dried coz I didnt use primer or putty. I’ll send you the original files on the condition that you give me some tips on photo manipulation πŸ˜‰

    Dear Mathai

    You did not mention what is the use of edit plus
    is it a useful programme to have on you Pc

      Its just a text editor but its very useful if you deal with system log files or very large text files where a normal notepad application would crash. Edit plus also has support for programming languages like Java, HTML etc so that you can write a good looking structured code.

    Love the flat colors man! And good choice of background to showcase your latest work! Awesome!
    Maybe you might want to do a panel line wash to bring out more of the details. Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

      thanks! I wanted to do a panel wash but I think I need lacquer paint right? I only have acrylic black. I’ll get a pot of lacquer on my next visit to the hobby shop πŸ™‚
