    I've always liked this character and the movie version is pretty cool so I decided to spruce this guy up. His stock color was pretty good in my opinion so I went ahead and smoked him and then added variable shades of green to create a sense of depth and shadow in him, and then added multiple washes and some physical damage apps here and there. He got some intricate detail apps too. Truck Mode comes tomorrow :)

    great work as always, not overdone and subtle (in my opinion)

    and longhaul is a great mold to begin and one of my favorites from the second movie as far as voyagers go

    to me what really makes this shine is what you did with all of the dull gray parts from the factory and gave them a real masterpiece touch

    sorry for the long post, but to often i see comments that appear to be the same regergitated "good job" and no longer make these kinda of comments feel personal, and im just as guilty as anyone so im not pointing fingures just, trying to bring back the community feel since we have had some bickering lately

    Just a suggestion; you can add some metal drybrushing on the inner legs which have so many details there. Anyway this piece already look so awesome!:thumbs2:

    I know what you mean. There are many great customs but I don't usually post because I don't have much to add other than the praise...

    Love how you went with a dusting effect as opposed to oil or mud, it fits with the mining dump truck alt mode.

    Thanks, I appreciate that!

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks for the awesome feedback! I like flat coats with dry-brushed figures.

    I aint totally finished with this one just yet, I may end up doing that :) 

    Thanks guys! I might just add some oily washes man :)

    I love seeing another custom Long Haul. I hit mine so hard right out of the package--he was dying for some paint. Evey time I see another one...it's kinda like ROTF leader Prime, you almost HAVE to :D 

    Very good stuff. Good weathering; the darker bits make him look like the illustrations!
