To that end, I finally motivated myself to get done something I'd been staring down for some time and trying to work up the nerve to start.
I speak, of course, of the Gecko shoulderpads.
First up is the Combi-Rifle off-shoulder: I decided to do a neat Gecko/Lizard themed pattern on one that may be familiar to some folks, namely:
|Sorry for the blurriness; cell camera fun...|
|The return of real camera!|
It was a fun if mind-bending paint, trying to remember where various limbs should go, making sure the paints were thin enough, trying to follow the lines properly. It ends up looking good though! I did have a friend ask why I wasn't doing an entire tag in this pattern, and... I think I'd just snap if I had to fit this pattern around legs and hands!
Next up is the Huntress shoulderpad, which is about half done so far. I've finally settled on all four shoulder designs, so they should be along in good order!
And now, back to painting...
