    he looks a little, um, stumpy I guess. Not bad though- the alt mode looks cool. Does his cannon barrel just partsform?

    Did you sculpt those parts yourself? Impressive.

    OK
    The idea is very cool, I like it.
    But why the hell you didn´t use styrene? this looks now like made of chew gum.
    And why so much drybrush?looks ugly, so destroyed shockwave...

    Wow man these response have a prettig harsh toen :( 
    Sorry to hear those, but you could have saved yourself a lot of trouble indeed by using wood/cardbord/styrene indeed! Love it btw the hard work really shows. Would be great to see more of your work and witness evolution! :)

    This is how constructive criticism should be written.

    Hmm. Seen this. One thing I learned while drybrushing is to make sure the paint I slab on covers all the areas I want. For example, I slab a big glob of paint onto Galvatron. This is a good thing. I can spread out the paint later and force it to become a thin coat among all the areas that needed purple paint. For the excess, I'll take the remaining globs that were too heavy and slab them onto his forearms. That way, it will be uniform.

    I can see you focused on transformation as well. Ignore that first. Focus on one thing, be it the painting or the transformation scheme. Well, you'd want to mesh out the transformation first. Then you won't have scratches on your transformation.

    It's a good attempt. I see Shockwave as this sort of turret cannon instead of a turret gun. Tutorial wise, I recommend you follow the painting guidelines in Radicon.

    Remember, a glob of paint can still save grace. :thumb 


    Nice advice, there. :thumb 

    Also, when sculpting, be sure not to toss out excess plastic. That can become a part of the putty, or styrene you're working with. Also, it's good to work with for liquid resin. You'll love this. It will save time, it will take time, it will look good. But most importantly, it saves time to buy and stock up on materials. Hope that helps.

    actually for me there is a charm to this i really like!i done one of these recently and its funny i was gonna attempt a similar thing with putty/epoxy but when i realized i could not get the perfect symmetry i gave up,i guess that would be my only critic-robots tend to have perfect symmetry and angles so anything that's not really stands out,anyhow keep up the good work and good luck

    Overall, not too bad. He looks rough in spots that IMO should be cleaned up more.
