    After doing this to a few Gundams, I decided, hey why not do this to a TF>
    First time panel lining a TF.

    too dark imo. I know gundam guys like to panel line with black but to give a more realistic depth to this color, you should only panel line a few click darker, not dark brown.

    I mean, it's a huge improvement, but the focal point is now the panel lining.

    On another note, black lining on Animated figures works awesomely well, considering the cartoony nature of the figures anywho. XP I suppose that's why it works on the Gundams too. o.o

    I agree. This is a great figure, and you made the details pop, but perhaps a bit too much.

    If I ever get this figure cheap, I will do a dark tan wash with flat light tan dry brushing. I think that would really make this figure stand out.

    I like this, but if you wanted to take the advice of the Radicons who've posted thus far, all you'd have to do is take some paint thinner and a rag and rub some excess off.

    Good job for using a sharpie imo.
    I would have preferably used citadel black ink to fill it in...and then maybe add some rivet rust, it would look pretty neat if you did. Maybe you should try some rust colours on the rivets?

    On the contrary, I like the 'extreme' darkness. It really defines it.
