    Got too many KO spare parts lying around. So I figured to put my KO G1 Bruticus to work.

    I am still undecided about the head, so I will still be looking around. I am going for the dynamic anime look with some exaggerated proportions. So, hip thrust and overly big fins of that sort is a must :D 
    But compared to e_goldenrain's custom (which has custom of the month written all over it), mine looks like kids play.
    Seriously. Really. Nuff said.

    EDIT: 4/7/2010 - Note to self, posting your work together with another customizer who does the same character but only better is suicide. Little or no one takes notice.

    I have added some colors just to visualize the mapping. Anyway, this is how he looks. Still a long way to go.

    EDIT: 4/9/2010 - Some painting done, added bulk on the thighs. Painting to continue...

    I think yours looks great so far, so don't sell yourself short man! Yours has what I would call a distinctive Japanese artistic vibe (it looks like a lot of the Japanese artworks I've seen on ol' Bruticus). I think it's the large chest shield and the cool parts you've got mixed in. Looking forward to seeing more on this! Keep it up (I'm a fan and enjoy seeing your work).

    love this, great work.

    the only suggestion I'd have would be to paint the pieces just above and below Swindle and Brawl in their colours.

    Yeah, but due to my inadequate skills, Blast Off and Blackout are parts forming now...

    Amazing work! The only thing that I'd consider changing (if i were doing this, of course) is making his "antennae" or "ears" thinner and sharper.

    It's looking awesome!
