Custom helmet

Ok guys and gals .
I gave my helmet to my painter and showed him a pic of maddrama's helmet. Told him I like maddrama's use his as a reference but paint mine however you think will look best. He just sent me these pics and I'm not even sure if it 100% complete .
What do you think of it , personally I have mixed emotion about it.

I'm liking the BMW Roundel on the side and the blended Brembo name, but I'm not too hot on the rather large BMW across the forehead. Perhaps just a little too much BMW going on there. But that's just me .....

Do you mind me asking what a custom paint job w/your painter costs (range)?

Honestly it's a friend and all he is charging me is for the paint . He use to do helmet for customers but stopped because he said it wasn't worth it . He does custom airbrushing on top fuel dragsters now . Big bucks

I like it it looks great, look to me its just about the uniqueness of having something. We obviously have a unique bike and to me I just wanted a different helmet. I have always been that way though... pretty much nothing I have remains stock for too long. But looks great.
