    Great work! :thumb 

    Yeah, could you discuss your process(es)? Radicons is a more than a place to showcase artwork, it is a discussion community connecting TF artists. :wink:

    amen to that. there is an ebay forum on TFW for ebay items, while radicons is more towards discussion and tips. It disappoints me seeing threads where the author only posts their work and a link to the ebay sale, then never returns. So please, come back and tell us how you did this!

    It'd be gorgeous if it weren't such a munter of a figure... :p  But yeah, love to hear your techniques.

    And is it me, or does he have a gargoyle on his crotch (particularly noticeable on the second pic)..?

    hey guys, thanks for the compliments and opinions.

    Yea, its the forum to share =)

    I used airbrush for the whole figure, no brush involved. What i did was to dissect Megatron into parts, a layer of silver on mostly all the parts, a lil of black (use for shading), blueish green mix mild (shading) - final layer of lacquer clear. Ta dahh ! MEGATRON comes alive !

    I did 4-5 megatrons before this one, you've got to keep trying and improve your own expectation. I expected more n more so it becomes this final one that i am satisfied with.
