First things first, the horns looks too much like croissants.That must be fixed. And I need more details all over, which means strip down the paint and on with more filler.
Strip down paint
More details around the edges, made from pizzabox cardboard.
Ready for priming, added axe mark in front.
Primed, now silver paint
Add black acrylic paint and drag it out, see Volpin's video
Backside of Skyrim Helmet. I hade received questions about what the helmet looks like from behind. If you have the game you can find a helmet and rotate it.
Base coat on the horns
One horn ready - I used darker brown and faded it out from each ridge. Add some blood and I'm done
Finished helmet - Female Dovahkiin cosplay
So now I am more satisfied with my helmet. Next up: Axe!
