    Pretty good figure, but it needed some help to look more Jazz-y. First time trying to panel line.

    Love the paintjob that you did, but I just can't warm up to this figure because of the terrible proportions.

    Good job for a first time wash.
    Suggestion for the future though. The best way to do a wash like this is to use a colorjust a bit darker than the surrounding plastic. For example I did a wash on BWX Megatron using a darker purple than the rest of the figure.
    For this a light gray would work a lot better to just highlight the details.

    This looks really cool, never have done anything custom to any of my TF's. What did you use to bring out the lines?

    If you use certain permanent marker paint, you can rub off the excess with normal eraser or a special one. I would recommend Faber Castell Multimark 1523 permanent. It came with a special eraser to erase itself. So you can erase the excess or accidental marking. You can also panel corners, like the thighs, it just look so white and not match with the others. The arms on the inside as well. You can also darken the inside of the torso, maybe the head would not look floating. On a side note, you can even scribe some line yourself, and panel line those lines.

    a wash is a heavily watered down version of a colour (like cheetimus said a grey would look best) you liberally apply your wash(there is tutorials on youtube for mixing and what not) and then usually it gets wiped of the raised parts so the recesses and edges are where the wash gets left behind....makes it look dirty and weathered.

    If done properly a wash can look like fine shadow.
