    Hey everybody. Actually finished these guys when i got them 3 weeks ago. So without further ado, here is ROTF Dirge VS ROTF Armorhide!

    Dirge is probably the least repainted custom i have ever done. His eyes were painted gold to match the original Conehead's yellow eyes. He also got some brushing on his arms with gunmetal gray. The most noticeable thing about him is that he is the first successful panel-lined transformer that i've done. Took me 30 minutes to paint in the lines

    Armorhide got a more extensive repaint. His vehicle mode is now metallic black, and he has gunmetal gray on all of his light gray parts. he then got drybrushed over his greenish parts.

    Enjoy!

    Great job on the panel lining! Wish my first was that successful... I know you probably hate hearing this, but lighting and the camera are killing these excellent pieces of work.

    I have to say, from what I can tell through the really bad pictures, these look to be the best customs I've seen you do. These are miles ahead of the Wheeljack you did. Now if only we can get your photography to improve. Why not try letting someone else take the pictures?

    Let me show you a pic from a custom I did.

    I took a total of 6 shots to get the one on the left. The one on the right is a reject. This is what I mean when I tell you about reviewing your pics. Now, I mean this in a constructive way here, but when I see your pics it makes me think you reviewed your pics and saw something like the one on the right and said, "Yep! Looks good." If your camera honestly can't take pictures any better than what you're showing us, you need a new camera. Badly!

    And commets like this...
    Make it seem like you are only willing to listen to praise, and not honest criticism.

    I actually take the best pics out of the batch to post. I have a sony cyber-shot camera. It says 7.2 megapixels. Do you think i need a new camera?

    Something is seriously wrong with your camera. Like I said, try letting someone else take the pics. Reread the instruction book. Do not simply accept that a camera is supposed to give you pics like that.
