    I have 5 projects in different stages of completion. I'm closest on waspinator, he just needs hands. The hands and forearms have gone through several revisions. Each time I have what I like I see something that makes me want to go in a different direction. Now, he is sitting on my bench for so long, that I want to reengineer his tail fins. That will be quite a bit more work. I'm just getting frustrated because he is so close that I just want to be done, but I know if I don't make him just how I want, I won't be happy. When is enough enough?

    I feel that if you start making multiple changes to something that's already done, that it's best to just start another project with revisions.

    I don't really consider any of my customs done. I'm always open to making more mods and/or paint applications.

    Usually when someone else says so. Artist are never happy, so it's usually a deadline of some sort. The joy of creation. :)

    I don't think you're ever really done with a custom, provided that it's one for your personal collection. Though if you're stuck with making multiple changes to what's already done, it's probably best to take a step back, take a break or work on another project, and then come back to it with a "renewed" vision or "refreshed" outlook, since being frustrated at a small problem over long periods of time can be quite maddening. (I should know.;) )

    Done = that point immediately before you haul off and chuck it out the window.
