    So I am really wanting to push my limits even farther this year with painting and builds and such. So I here is another guy I am using a lot of brush/airbrush work with. The way Grimmy looks best to me...... tough and with teeth. I want him to resemble a tank...but...a Dino tank!!!!

    mainly just layers of flat black, grays, and whites...a little bit of silver on some spots, but mainly on the edges and in the cuts. I also used a turquoise wash on some of the chest to resemble corrosion.. you can see it on the "bolts" beside his head.

    Too much tease dude. More pics! Will you be carving the faceplate with teeth like your WWI? That's one of my most favourite features in one of my favourite customs made by you!

    I like this TONS more than Grimlock usual chromed chest. I don't like chrome at all, unless it's for a muffler or a grill...

    Here's an idea. Shattered Glass is a bit like the "reverse image" of the universe we're familiar with.

    How about a Grimlock in Constructicon green & purple, and then you can do a Devastator that has a weathered steel and bronze/gold look to it?
