    As have been said above, since you clear coated the panel, you are okay to proceed. As Basepaint suggested, cover the entire panel with frisket or I prefer transfer tape. The paper kind that you use to transfer vinyl lettering to surfaces. It works really nice. Trace the outline of your reference people, cut your transfer paper with a sharp exacto blade to expose the surface you want to paint. Be very careful not to cut too deep. Scuff, clean and tack rag, then base coat it white. Transfer your reference and paint. That's how I would tackle it, same as Basepaint. Slow layering on the illustration, take your time, there's a lot of detail there.

    I would do it exactly as CALz AyrWKz said, trace your outline and give yourself a white base to start from.

    thanks everyone! The detail in these trophies have driven me to drink but I think the final coat of clear will make this pop and hopefully make it will worthwhile!
