I finally (FINALLY) dove into it, and though I've got a ways to go, I'm happy with it so far. Hopefully you can see that I'm attempting to make my helmet look like a fishing hat (though I do have difficulty seeing anything other than the army helmet).
Day One of "I'd Rather Be Fishing"
Right now, this is the messy base painting (not that it will be "high realism" when I'm done as I prefer a painterly look). I'll do a bit more of this loose painting to try for a more accurate account of shadows and folds, and then when I'm ready for stitching, lures and other details, I'll put my glasses on, grab a smaller brush and hope for the best.
