    although very cool, and well done, i just don't see any direction of the damage. it just looks to me like blind battle damage, with no story behind it. I age and damage photography all the time, and found that each time i do one, when i establish a fake history for the photo, and then proceed to damge it following the story, they always come out believable and i fool everyone. your bots seem to just always be at the centre of some sort of explosion, melty shrapnel thinger.

    sometimes less is more. but you do a good job at what you do. next time, come up with some pose, and scenario, and damage it as it would happen if it were real, not just hack and slash away at it just cuz.

    Thanks, I think... ????
    I don't get it ?
    What ?
    This isnt a photo ..... its an action figure.
    As far as I know anyone who is injured in combat doesnt have a planned "story" ...... connect the dots ..... whatever you wanna call it.
    ?????
    I'd LOVE to see you're version though, how 'bout you show us how its done .......PUOSU

    I agree Wheeljaxx..It s a bit over done. Well done, looks cool..But it over takes him. It's to even over all of him, instead of like..If something burned or blew up next to him, it'd charcoal the side or area of him.

    You ask for a critique of your work..Then get all bent out of shape when someone makes a very well thought out opinion of your work. It's not a "put up or shut up"...How old are you anyways?

    He wasn't saying it's a picture. But, as the artist, you can imagine it as such..Where as yours looks like it's all random destruction..He was saying..Think of it in action, in reality. Say a bomb blows up near Hounds foot..That part will be heavily damaged..Blackened and bent and fragmented etc. It would show heavy damage that would be more extensive closer to the point of impact, but receed as it went further away. Yours is all just very general destruction.

    Actually this figure and its modifications was suggested by other members .... it says
    "Thanks for the suggestions on this one you guys !"
    Not asking for people to give me "their version" and "how to do it right next time"
    I'm showing it so people can see it - thats all.
    I view lots of other members customs - but its just not for me to tell them they did it wrong cause its not how I would have done it. That kind of defeats the whole purpose/meaning of the word - custom.
    Besides I've already done damage in one area like you said - So I'm not really into making the same figure over & over again.
    The first figure I did had 6 times the damage and most thought it was overdone - this one has 6 times less damage yet its still overdone to some.....

    I don't think this is a fair response to wheeljaxx. He was offering a suggestion and a very good one at that. Sami reiterated the same thing.

    I agree with them, your battle damage on your customs looks cool, but random.

    I think your work is rad. Keep it up. Working in a creative industry myself, I have my own styles and methods for what I do and can't stand it when someone gives me their suggestion on how I should improve it. You're not asking for a critique..you're presenting your work, how you envisioned it.

    BTW, how much do you sell these for?

    I really dont get the appeal here... It looks like the toy was dropped from a moving car a couple times, the damage doesn't look like something combat would do to him, it looks like something a mean kid with a knife and hammer would do to his little brother's favorite toy. So now it's considered a custom when you take an icepick to a toy for 20 minutes then roll him around in mud?

    Sorry, but while customs are fine and battle damage can look good, this doesn't... It's disrespectful to the toy and really in a way it's kind of disturbing.

    You call that a suggestion ?
    Thats a little uncalled for, I think.

    you really don't take crituque well then don't you. you post something, exepect it to be crituiqed. your acting VERY immature over this. you don't want crituique, good or bad, then STOP POSTING. only way your going be happy it seems.

    you take good crituique well enough, learn out to take the bad.

    I agree with Wheeljaxx. Don't get me wrong, you have a pretty accurate handle on weathering and battle-damaging a figure/kit, but I think that there should be a little bit more direction to the weathering and the damage. I mean, right now, whatever happened to Hound seems relatively..."generic." From which direction did the damage come? Why is he damaged in this way? Does the damage match where you've sheared off sections?

    And, honestly, look - people in the customs and kitbashes forum offer other people friendly suggestions as to how to improve or change a work all the time. It's up to you as to whether or not you'd like to take the advice. Just because we're offering you suggestions does not mean we're insulting the work. It's foolhardy to take constructive criticism as an actual insult, because, well, it just isn't that.
