I completed my A-5 MultiCam™

These might be some of the first shots of this kind as I have never seen any multicam shots with all three of these criteria: 1. Wearing MutliCam, 2. located in the desired habitat for concealment with multicam and 3. holding a weapon done in MultiCam. (Feel free to prove me wrong, but can't find any googled shots like this anywhere. Bonus extra criteria 4. paintball oriented.) My shots are not that great. Just shot them on my iphone. So here we go:
This was a photoshoot not a game. I know...no tank or lens in my mask. It was hot.
A lot of you saw my Custom 98's I did for practice, now I have completed my A-5. Sandblasted as the previous models. Day 4 and the paint is pretty much adhered to the gun and safe for a photoshoot. I am still working on my "CLICK HERE for how-to" for a Multicam Pattern (and I won't forget about you guys.) However, I am still not convinced that I have it right, but it sure looks good to me when I lay it over my shirt.
Ooops! I forgot to wear my MultiCam Bandana. :dodgy:

It looks great, my only constructive criticism is that it seems to be kind of light colored, could have been a little darker. But I think it does the job!!!! Great work!

it might be the flash but it does look a little light. However fantastic work it does look very good.I know the work and time involved in doing a multicam duracoat paintjob.

Also be careful Duracoat needs a good 4 to 6 weeks to fully cure and harden so it will never scratch.

No, your right, especially a little light in the shadow detail. For some reason the suggested color that comes with the "Duracoat Multicolor" Kit is transparent and not opaque (solid) and was difficult to get a solid dark. I might try to go back and layer the shadow darker. You guys might want to keep that in mind when you are ordering your colors. Get a darker "Multi dark brown" substitute. If I had black, I would mix the two together.

It's good enough for me, honestly. I just want all my stuff to match for once. I was wearing woodland BTU's. Had a digital ACU vest and a black gun. Orange hiking shoes...you get the picture.

Oh, I love my dogleg. They advertise it as "ugly". It's functionality makes it aesthetically pleasing. No risers or offsets. Now my sights and red dot have real function and are useful for first shot accuracy.

Another Beautiful marker Charlie, well done. It does look a little (and I mean a teeny tiny bit) light but when has Duracoat ever got there colors spot on. Thats why I resorted to mixing my own. Great job.

I was just rereading over this and a couple of youguys thought it was a bit too light. Actually, the lighting was hard to get right in a couple of photos. But, the glare on the marker makes it look light, as well as it was closer to the light source causing it to burn out quicker in the photo. Otherwise, the camo is right on when it is seen in real life (see photos of field shots.)

Get a softbox. (Photography place will have it.) It'll make it easier to get good lighting on your markers when you take a pic. Nice painting though.

Uuuuh, no. Even if I had it, I am too lazy to set all that up for a shoot. A window with a white blind over it is good enough for me. Or shooting outdoors in the shade is a good way to get the shot. Plus, I have photoshop, I could fix it there. plus I am not sure if anyone would notice if I darkened my marker to match the lighting of the background?

I am surprised no one has posted a MC marker, yet. And I have only seen one OMniPat attempt. I am here if you have any questions on painting any patterns.

I can't believe the dogleg is advertised as "ugly". I find it quite attractive and would definitely be my choice if I got an A5 (unless I went for the subby look which I probably would) Anyway awesome paintjob, I wish I had your skills and your duracoat :P

-keep it :mellow:

That's one of the sweetest jobs that I've seen yet. I would not hesitate to let you do one of mine! Nice work.
