    The pics are definitely better, but they're too bright. You might wanna move the lamps you use farther back and turn down the brightness settings on your camera.

    And.. what is he looking at up in the ceiling in almost all the pics? :)

    what brand of paint do you use? and EXACTLY what kind of paint (enamel, acrylic, laquer). also, you used blackwash for the majority of the robot mode, right?
