    Hey guys. First time using my ghetto picture thing. Probably not a good combination of background color because
    it too is greyish-silver, so if it's hard to see I'll remedy it.

    So, I was unhappy with the color of default Megs. Ya know, just like everybody else. Here's a picture if you forget:

    At first I just sharpie'd what I wanted silver. But, being the novice I am, then realized that it was way too much of an area
    and wouldn't turn out as good-looking as silver sharpie'ing small details. This is what it was when I did that:

    So I wasn't happy with that.I decided to use my brand new silver gloss paint, and I'd appreciate some critique. Please note
    that this is the first big paint I've done

    Sorry if they're a bit big :/ But please, I'm open to any and all constructive criticism. After all, this is my first semi-full repaint.

    I'd say you did a good job. Megs doesn't seem that difficult to me. He just uses a lot of paint, or at least I used a lot on mine.

    It needs some touching up, particularly the hands and fusion cannon, but it's a good effort. I highly recommend that you clear coat the figure to better preserve the paint.
