    Far be it for one such as me who cannot even approach that level of freehand talent to criticize, but i think that without the X on the front, it would be one of the more beautiful APCs I've ever seen (title of most beautiful goes to the "Pagoda of Death" Chimera, although I am unsure who painted that now...). With it, however, it just plain looks off. It might just be the fact that the X is not quite centered or something, but I think if you just went with a plain black front it would look better overall.

    What's with all the crazy talented young Australian painters on Librarium Online at the moment? Where are you all getting your mojo from? I must have been born too early or something...

    The tank looks fantastic, the freehand on the top is very well done. I like the shading for the X on the front.

    My mother has just walked behind me, though, seen the pictures and says she doesn't like the X. She thinks that the top looks good, but the front just looks as though "they couldn't think of anything better to put there" or words to that effect. I just thought I'd through her thoughts in, as to be honest it does seem a little plain. Well painted, but just not

    Regarding the straight lines - I think the best way to do it is to use masking tape of some kind. I've always thought it would damage the paint but I guess it depends what type of tape you use. And I think this is generally used more in airbrushing, although I'm sure it's applicable when using a brush.

    An alternative may be drawing light guidelines on before you begin painting, using a ruler or something to make sure they're straight before you start. You'd still need a steady hand, though, so I'm not sure it would help much.

    Yes, well us Aussies teens have been overshooting you oldies lately (Joking! God...). Anyways, the freehand on the top is amazing! Although, the skull could be a little more in-proportion, and the feathers are bothering me a bit, but other than that, I must say that your brush controll is superb! Next time you do someting like this, I'd plan it out a bit more, because it looks to me a bit rushed. Did you do any rough sketches before you painted it?

    The 'x' could be better though.

    I rep you good sir!
    Cheers

    Looks great. Superb freehand. Kudos to you.

    I think the only extra observation I'd add is to reference the objects you are painting. The skull looks 'cartoony'. If you had looked at images of a real one or one stylised really well and copied it, the skull would have been awesome.

    Yeah I don't like the X, but the rest is awesome, the X is not bad, but i think it takes away from the top

    Like gothic style. But I prefer bisexual photo just like those I viewed on (BiMingle...Cccom). That's my favorite way.

    I think the position of the X looks better now, the way it goes all the way to the corners.

    It might be best to stick with the X motif so you don't over-detail this - just to X's on the doors as you've done on the front.
