    so i choose a smaller figure to start with
    and i find myself really enjoy doing this now lol !

    Really liking this piece. Great first try. As for the white parts, I like the figure as-is, minus left arm. But if you want to go darker, I'd start with a grey first because it's easier to go darker than to go black and then go lighter.

    ^ Good advice. If you like what you see with grey, you can always go darker.
    I like this! Very clean, simple and effective.

    ... wow, did the Lazorbeak head fit without any modification? That's awesome.

    (and depending on your skill level and courage, you could try dyeing the white parts to black.)

    GREAT head choice! And for a first-custom, your paint work is really pretty nice.

    You're definitely on the right track, just keep at it.

    Love this piece!

    Going with the Terrorsaur theme, make him Lazorbeak. Easy as that.

    That'd be neat.

    Personally, I'd love to see BW Jetstorm or Transquito or some other non-show Pred flier.
