    This will be the thread I go back to whenever I have something new to show that I'm working on but isn't finished. I figure it's better than starting new threads all the time.

    Anywho, here's the first addition to the thread.

    BM Megatron's face really doesn't work for this, and the purple's also a strange choice. I'd like to see it with more yellow and less purple. As for the head, the upcoming Megs retool from FOC Grimlock may be a better fit.

    Actually the head fits the Beast Machines Megatron VERY well which is what I believe he was going for. Great work as always Cheets!

    I think this could benefit from less purple, more of that tealy blue he had in BM. At least, that's what I'd have done. His head just doesn't look right in red! Of course, this is just opinion. Great work.

    I really like it as a custom character, but it's kind of odd as either TM2 Megatron or Cybertron Scourge. Also, I think the head needs horns or spikes or ears or something, it's very smooth compared to the rest of the body.

    The usual goes without saying-- awesome colors, great work, good job picking out details to highlight (and diminish). I figure you get enough praise you can take the critique up front. :)

    HONEST CRITIQUE! MY ONE WEAKNESS!!!!!

    Heh, not really. In fact I'm SO glad to see more than just blatant praise here. I may not agree with all the the critiques but it's still nice to see and gives me stuff to think about.

    I'll address a few things... mostly with one link:
    http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/3b/BWdragonmegs_toy.jpg

    I based this more on this toy than anything else. It has an abundance of dark blue/purple. I went with the color I liked the most to represent that. The head looks out of place but it has always looked out of place on TM2 Megs. And I left the face plate on not because this is BM Megs but because I think it looks a lot cooler than removing it.
