NathanielWest wow :bowdown:

First time I'm actually posting something in the DSF.
Main reason why I need to is because I need a lot of improvement on all aspects of painting.

See for yourself :blush:

Now that I've spend 55 min on this a few notes to self:

create some custom brushes!
don't spend too much time on one single part (the front right wheel in this case)
light, let there be light!!
Any particular suggestions to get things done quicker?

edit: forgot to post the ref I used:
