    First off, I completely credit Frenzy Rumble for the initial idea for this custom because I used his custom Breakdown as a full reference for mine.

    This is one of the Stunticons, Breakdown, that I repainted from a Classics Sideswipe. I also swapped heads with a Classics Hound and used it for this guy as well.

    This one was definitely a real 'task', the white paint I used and it's good solid stuff, required me to wear gloves when handling it to keep it clean. I also had to mask off tons of areas on this guy too for the 2-tone colors.

    Looks cool. The head is small, but thats the only gripe I see. But hey its your custom, so great job.

    I like the paint job. But I agree the head looks too small. It's still a very good custom. :thumb  :thumb

    love it, very clean, too many customs that aren't clean, while neat, those just aren't appealing, this looks beautiful

    Thanks Vipera, it's definitely one of my cleanest customs. Personally though, I prefer the more worn look and I plan on making the entire Stunticon crew with a couple of them battled up!

    Could you describe what exactly about this custom that is "nasty"? "Nasty" is pretty harsh, in my opinion. If you legitimately think it's "nasty", then describe why you think this.

    If you are unable to provide helpful feedback (as in helpful positively or negatively), then you may want to find another forum. Constructive criticism (posting positive and negative comments on how an artist can improve and/or areas the work succeeds) and praise ("I really like that! Good work!") are the types of comments that are appropriate here.

    I'm going to allot you ample time to reconsider your post here. :thumb
