The bkack lining was done using a contrast paint called black Templar, it’s just the right consistency neither wash nor solid paint, then any mistakes were tidied up after with the base colors

You certainly nailed the paint, for both the subject matter and the effect that you were going for.  Very well done indeed.

An perfectly fun idea and excellent execution.

Majorsmith , what did you use for gloss coat. I’ve tried several different varnishes both spray and brushed on and can’t seem to get it as shiny as you did.

Thanks for the reply. So there's no specific brand just proper technique. I'll have to be more patient ;D

That's superb Andy. There's something very appealing about that range if you're a Tintin fan. You've nailed the aesthetic with your paintjob.
