This is one of my first customs, a repaint of Cyberton Clockwise into Cybertron Sideswipe. I was still fairly new at the whole customizing thing at this pint, and I was using Paint markers and a bit of Krylon. I was doubtful of my bashing and paint skills, and was to afraid of "messing up' to dive head first into any huge bashes. However (and this is the point, BTW) I had a support system here at the Radicons forum. I got honest feedback, and helpful critiques on what to improve. And I don't just mean the "atta boys" that we all need from time to time, but the honest insight on how thick the paint was, how to take better pictures, and how to improve overall, from the staff and members who had been there and done that. Because of the support, I managed to improve a lil. Our comments on each other work have that ability, to either help us move forward or to make us "give up". I urge everyone here to keep that in mind when making a comment on a custom work. Recently I seem to see more and more jabs and slight insults than honest criticism. It bothers me becuase if the guys who helped me hone my craft would have been so mean, I would have never taken my first Prime apart, or anything else for that matter. One of the reasons I hang my hat at TFW is that there seems to be less and less arrogance and rudeness. Were all just fans, some of us huge, others a mild interest. But we are mature and respectful. I don't mean you have to sugarcoat every comment you make. Listening to honest opinions is one the choices we make when we stick our stuff one the web for all to see. But lets not pull someone down and trample them underfoot. Its un called for, and quite frankly, we Radicons are better than that. Nuff Said!
