    Still a wip. I have to decide how I want to do the silver on the forearms. I may switch out the window and leave off the silver trim. This is the first thing I've done that wasn't just a part swap in 2 years. :0

    thanks guys. it's good to be back. "and this time, nothing in the universe can stop me." :D 

    it's a shame, after i finish him he'll just be covered up by the d.i.a armor.

    i'm about to add the details to the arms. i'm thinking about adding some red though, should i change knees to red and some to the feet or keep it as is?

    i'm going to paint some more of the middle of his arm yellow and see if that makes it less distracting, otherwise i'll be painting over it.

    I hope we get a lot more photos of your work! I think the yellow on the forearms detracts from the otherwise marvelous job you've done here. It's good to see you making customs again, bud :thumb

    really, i actually like it now that there's more on the forearms. oh well.

    there will be more pics, i'm not done yet. i had to pause for cause, my comp is saturday so i've been studying.

    i'm going to try and make a homemade box for my pics and get a stand for my camera, stupid shakey hands.

    Well, if you like it, then that's cool. The color on the arms, even with Prime, is just a matter of personal choice for me. I've been aiming to either alter my Classics Prime or get the Henkei.

    I wish you well with your studies, and I hope to see more photos (and customs) from you soon, bud :thumb

    thanks, but it's far from perfect. it's good enough to suit my needs but i'm not satisfied. i want to learn to airbrush and not have to rely on spray cans. it'd be nice if we could get some sort of custom retreat set up over the country were x amount of our "top" customizers would do a workshop with us. kinda like at botcon. we'd just go, if able, to which ever place was closest. any way, back on topic. i have used....
