    Wow! It looks great! I love the metallic shading.

    How did you do it?

    I'd just like to suggest that you do the same shading technique on his black robot parts (waist, legs), but the other way around (light shading on the darker parts). I think that this would complete the "movie accurate" look.

    Right now, it still kinda looks like a black plastic toy (look at his legs) with brilliantly shaded metallic parts (like his shinguards). Or maybe it's just the pictures.

    In any case, GREAT WORK! :thumbs2:

    Nice job. Maybe a bit too dark, could have used a tad more color here and there, but nice job nonetheless.

    Good luck with that.

    Awesome job. I'm in the progress of doing an Ironhide myself. You should rip out the springs in the chest (that hold up the hood parts) then the hood parts won't be such a bother and block his vision. I also modded the guns to look more accurate.

    Thanks for the compliments =)

    I've thought of taking off the springs in the chest but It wouldn't look as original or movie accurate anymore.
    Theres more than meet the eyes for this Ironhide, but i still couldn't take a good picture of it because i suck at taking pictures.
