    Welcome from Australia.
    It's a little hard to critique something when the photo is out of focus but from what I can see you're off to a really good start.

    Thank you very much, I am still struggling with pressures, mixing paints, it's a real science airbrushing, but I am one of them who won't give up. I will update more detail pictures next week as I haven't finished with that bonnet.

    welcome to the team bud you will find this forum an unbelievable help on your conquest!!
    cracking image man... critizise i cant it looks bloody brilliant to me this he is by far my favourite villain (played by the perfect actor) ... but it it was my piece... i would supersize him onto the full side piece of the panel... and do batman at the other side.. with the words "who dares wins" down the centre... be a brilliant challenge for you... and would look killer to boot... just a thought feel free to tell me to bugger off... hahaha... best of luck on your journey

    that is a super sweet picture infact im gonna save it ;)... however i dont think it goes with the theme of the joker... it would be awesome its self dont get me wrong... but with the original shapes of the bonnet the two "halfs of a whole" theme would fit and work perfectly... by all means put a fire up the centre but smash it right in the center and do a torn metal effect vertically down the lip of the centre.... as if the fire is underneath the metal of the bonnet (put skulls in the fire by all means) ... and the joker and batman have been painted above it.... start a thread on the works in progress... im seriously interested in where this bonnet ends up :D think about layout and the bigger picture before you start... that way your piece will flow.. and if it flows it makes it not just good art... but great art... and thats exactly what we all try to achieve everytime we paint i reckon... no body is truely happy with "just ok"..
    hope this helps a bit buddy
    take it easy brother

    Hi marecko78, welcome to the forum, your painting looks great so far. Your iwata airbrushes will see you throughout your airbrushing journey although you will most likely buy some more like most of us do.

    yep, lose the skulls !
    i liked @toammy idea, but that would mean you would have to start over :cry:

    Joker should be the hero of the piece....... larger,
