Where do most of you get your inspiration for your custom paint jobs on your predator suits? Are they animal inspired, super hero inspired, or what I would love to hear where people get there paint inspirations from.

I don't have a suit but a few days ago I was walking and there was a leaf on the ground with an interesting patter of yellow and red. It was kind of like P2 but I can see how inspiration can come from anywhere. I wanted to keep it but I won't be doing any paint work for a while so I'll look for other things later.

both are cool inspirations. My inspiration is the red spotted newt. I love the red spots and the black spots on it with the white belly and the light to dark green coloration

i am probably going to use my 2 GSDs. One is a light sable and the other is a black sable w/red undercoat.

I got a lot of inspiration from the comic books, specifically "Predator: Cold War".

As far as my mask paintup went, I went somewhat close to the color scheme from the Classic Predator in Predators, though I still went a lot more yellow since my bodysuit was already pretty yellow:

Actually, I could have gone a little more subtle and a little more irregular with the red spots on top of my mask, but I was under the gun to get stuff done.

Oh, and speaking of that first picture, I'd love to make a multi-spear like that. I just wish I had enough time to work on it.

as skin patterns go, i'm looking at the orignial Predator for inspiration - but with the twist that I'm matching my skins own sublt color pigmentatiion. Its sublte but still creepy. I'll post pics post halloween for sure.

Like most folk here - i'm still furiously working on parts of my latest suit in time for next weekend.

Since I have the wolf torso and Mr Black legs... my skins have more of the reptilian/snake-like texture to them... so I went with a more creamy vintage white base color with browns and blacks.
