Bryan explored several different design ideas but one thing was clear from the beginning...it had to be gold! The other things Bryan asked for were a smooth, flowing design and something that had details that you'd see as you looked more closely at the helmet.
This was a helmet that I really enjoyed painting because its not like anything I'd done before. The mix of various shades of gold plus the gold & chrome accents were something that were hard to visualize prior to painting but the end result was better than expected. In addition to the mix of gold and chrome, we added drop shadows and a custom candy red with a pearl accent in the pinstripes to give it a subtle bit of color.
