    OK, so this is my first, "custom." i don't even want to call it a custom because it's just i little touch up that i made with a mini-con i didn't like and a silver sharpie. But this little guy inspired me to do more customs, but there is one little problem, i know nothing of, "The ways of the Radicon." So to all who care, could you direct me to there things...
    1st- Where to get some good paint and some good brushes.
    2nd- How to paint with said paint and brushes.
    3rd- How to do some simple mods (like maybe some tutorials)
    4th- anything else i should know on how to be a good Radicon.

    THANK YOU.

    put your customs under a background like white A4 paper if you can't use a lightbox. just simply fold the paper crosswise and set it on a table like a stand, supported by something behind it. then set your custom there and photograph it. that way the focus of the camera is on the custom and not on anything else in the background. make sure your macro is on too. hope that helps. :)

    First of all, welcome! I do hope that this will inspire more from you!

    As for "being a Radicon", we've answered, what we feel, is most of those questions in our Radicons FAQ and Etiquette, found by clicking the "Radicons Info" drop down menu near the top of your page here.

    Enjoy your time here, and I hope you make tons of friends from the greatest TF customs community on the 'net :)
