Might have to throw out the heavy detail on the front of the helmet. Or opt for something a bit differant.... Hmmm, ponder, ponder.
perhaps if you didn't make it so contrasty. It's hard to tell what is the base and what is the paint, because it has almost a 50/50 split (is it black paint on metal or metallic paint on black plastic?). If you want it to look like the wearer painted something on his helmet, then I think that the paint should only cover 10-25% so that the base color is dominant.
If I were doing it, I'd probably make the pattern look embossed, like it was all the same color metal, but stamped.
