I am not sure if I will paint the arch. I kinda like the colour of the kraft paper, as it is; looks like sandstone or khaki.
I will paint some pictographs on it, though; maybe the mask, too.

That studio looks as clean as I've ever seen it. What happen to all the death bikes?

Look back a few postings (maybe archives). I put the deathbikes outside, with a free sign on them and they were gone in a few days.

This looks fantastic! If you plan to paint pictographs on the arch, I agree that it would be best to keep it unpainted so the pictographs are easier to see.

However, it might also look good to have the painting on the legs slowly change color and form up to the "neck" of the face.

Can't wait to see the next phase!
