I haven't posted in a while on the Silverhawks. So here is the latest. I was working on the Steelheart brother, I forget his first name, and I started to wonder what his helmet might look like. I had given him this great big collar so it seemed fitting that he would have a big dome helmet. I also wanted to make sure that he had some kind of covering for his arm. I know its normally not an issue, in the Silverhawks universe, but I thought it might help balance out his giant fishbowl helmet head.
More to come...

So I recently painted this head for the bronze boy on the Silverhawks team. But when I was working on it I tried something new. I used this custom brush in photoshop which just looks like four dots stacked on top of one another (i included a pic of it in the image if the painted head). But what I did was I used this brush just to smudge my edges to get a smooth edge on one side of a stroke while keeping the hard egde on the other side. Also it just helped to roughly indicate edges instead of sharply defining them. As you can tell, I was totally stoked about this. So anyway here it is. More to follow on the Silverhawks saga soon...
