    Need help with a half finished Project - nearing completion

    I've been working a Universe Scourge, based on the Botcon figure.
    However, I've hit a point where I cannot decide. Do I leave the beard grey (like most figures and art) or do I make it black, (like the cartoon)

    EDIT: DECIDED AND FINISHED.

    Waiting for parts to dry so I can transform him and get some more pics.

    I don't think that beard is sinister enough to pull off a light shade. Black gets my vote.

    I used silver on mine (to keep with the silver/chrome look that some other parts had). It can work, but on yours, I'd say go with a dark gray. I think black makes it stand out too much. I also tried black on my Scourge's beard and 'stache and it just didn't look right.

    In the end, it's up to you bro. Can't wait to see this when you've finished.

    Here's a link to mine if you want to see the silver look: Universe Scourge - hXcpunk23

    I'm all for a cartoon look so I'd say go with black.

    I think either black or a darker gray would work the best, but I agree that its your custom and you do whatever feels right to you. So hope that helps you out. He does look cool though.
