Fuck yea, I've always dug the craftsmanship and work that want into these and the decay on the older brick ones.

New subscribed thread, I'll try to contribute.

How do they get the shapes spot on in the GTa/Halo murals? Someone painting a face for example would start with the basic circles and lines etc, and mark the whole thing out. But It seems like the paint downwards bit by bit, which is odd, is it projected on or feintly marked?

 

Personally i would think it impossible to get it perfect being so close up, not being able to step back etc..

 

odd!

scale ratio.. like an inch on the reference drawing or what have you would be a 5x5 foot square.

 

also there is another way but i dont feel like explaining it right now
