Hi guys. Well, this is my first ever post on TFW2005. I have been lurking around like, forever, and never really got my butt down to posting anything until. For my first post, I would like to showcase my repaint of ROTF Soundwave. Steps I took are straighforward: black mist, black gloss coat, black silver mix, and finally drybrushing of silver and gold. For further fun, I stuck on blue crystals (energon?) in all the sexy spots to give soundwave abit of bling. Yes, I was inspired by crefigz's version. Hope you don't mind, I was really inspired. Yes, I'm pretty new in this customising business, so do go easy on me...This isn't the first custom I did, but I'm still very low level compared to the greats like JinSatome, F_R, crefigz, altezen, to name a few. Yeah, thank you guys for all the tips and inspiration. All in all this seem to be a nice, simple painting exercise, but I know it's not perfect. So do bring on the criticisms as I wanna learn as much as possible. Unfortunately, I've got a full-time job so customizing (as well as replying on the forums) will play second fiddle. But be assured I read the forums everyday. (you can't imagine the number of wips I have.) To end off, I must say that I'm also unfamiliar with this forum posting stuff. If I'd done anything inconvenient or inappropriate just shout out. I'd learn fast enough. The Flickr set is here.
