    Hey guys,
    So recently, I repainted my TFP Sky-Lynx to follow the style of the knights in the new Transformers Movie, and I wanted your input. This is my first professionally done custom and feel as if its missing something. Does it need some blue? Is the copper to light? Any input at all would be great, thanks

    I think a good rust or brown/black wash to deepen recesses would work wonders. I like the colors you chose, but they just need a little depth to really show off the details.

    Wow. That looks great. I wouldn't change a thing, honestly.

    The mold looks much more appealing done up this way. Can't wait to see robot mode.

    I'd try using a metallic green instead of a flat one, and hit the pin in the elbow with it too. Really any color accent would help him pop, the horns and teeth speak to me in particular.

    Use neon green for 'Energon' effect, but otherwise this is great as is.

    Autoboty is right. You can also simpy add two lighter layers of green on top of the green spots to simulate the glow effect.

    Also imo, sky lynx needs wings and transform into a shuttle ;)

    Looks great, but might need a few colors and some wings.

    I actually kind of like the look of him without wings, the pair he came with were too clunky and it makes him look more bestial. Some new skeletal ones might do well though.
