    That's black chrome? Maybe it's the background, but it looks more gold-ish to me. Still very sweet, nonetheless.

    Hey Michael Bay, think you can take some pics that aren't so close???--(kidding :)  )

    But seriously, can you take a pic or two a few more inches back? I can see alot of reflection in your chrome (which is a good thing) but I wanna see the whole thing.

    Your "black chrome" looks flawless by the way. Is it alsa, or alclad?

    You sprayed too much bro, it's looks more like regular chrome. Maybe it's just my eyes playing tricks on me. Did you apply the black chrome heavy?

    I believe he vacuum-metalizes his chromes.

    Excellent job, I didn't realize I had a hair out of place til I saw my reflection in Ravage.

    Top Job!:thumbs2:

    yep, its probably my camera settings, im still draggin my feet on getting a new camera :(  i didnt want to go "too heavy" on the black chrome cuz that would just dull out the shine. you can really tell the difference between regular chrome and black chrome when two pieces are next to each other... i attached some pics with ravage next to a chrome ROTF leader prime and megatron. as you can see, the black chrome on ravage is like night and day.

    thanks guys! you are correct mr hank, most of my pieces are vacuum metalized.

    hmmm... i should have scattered a whole bunch of silver BB's around ravage when i took the pics... darn!

    Where do you get your vacuum metalizing done? If you dont mind, can you pm the price for leader prime. I'm quite interested.

    Just had to dig these out. While looking at some lucky draw figures it came to my mind that a user created Figures with an awesome look and now i´m hoping to hear or maybe see more of your artwork.

    The 8th post shows us an awesome RotF Leader Megatron and an RotF Leader Prime and i didn´t find them anywhere else but in this thread. I´m just hoping to hear from you and to see more of this amazing Artwork...

    Hey!

    Wow! lol, old thread... I'm still around, just not as active on the customs front. Though I am currently working on some OP parts for another board member. Just been really busy with work and other commitments. Cybcon in Washington State is coming this September so I need to get movin' on a few customs that I plan on showing. As for additional pics of my past work.. I haven't updated the Concepts in Chrome for some time and I know that some of the slideshows no longer work. I am SLOWLY uploading all the pics to my new Facebook page so you may want to check in there from time to time....

    Cheers!
