    Hard crits?

    The purple on the legs, while I understand is a light reflectiveness, doesn't quite work for me.

    Nor do we spoon enough.

    There are your crits. But I love you...

    nice work, very gundam-esque pose. crits crits crits... i'd say do something more interesting with the back leg, looks a bit odd just hanging there aimlessly

    that's a great start drew. I'M w/you on the hard crits idea. It's hard to create w/o some feedback loops you know? please feel free to rip me a new one anytime...
    For me at least i'm loking for a strong light source. it seems like yours is coming from behind/below or his right side.if that's the case you might try dropping some darks opposite to those sources. The line work is super clean w/ no hard shadows which leaves you to choose freely where your shadows/highlights are.
    i like the bit oh highfight and shadow play where his chest piece/fin is. I could see alot more of that especially coming thru the space between his gun/arm and the rest of his body. it looks like you didn't get to the gun yet, and its flattening out the rest of theimage. his right fist need some serious bright highlights so it comes to the fore.
    maybe work his gun and turrets al ittle. i could see them w'some nice textures to contrast the smoothness of his body plates. oh yeah...glowing eyeballs!
    I love makotron's art, always a solid compsition.
    don't forget to consider the white of the background. sometimes that can be very unforgiving. maybe a mid-tone background will make this pop more. Awesome stuff man can't wait to see where this goes.

    hmm i suppose all i can say on colours really is a bit more dramatic contrast would be nice.. stronger highlights / shadows, looks lie some back-lighing would be good on him

    Hey thanks for the colors man! Way to go, looking great so far :) 
    Since it's a WIP, I have no crit so far - but I'm feeling the different take on it, more comic-like than anime-like.

    looks solid so far but if youre gonna go with backlit stuff go a lil harder on the contrast. also define the ambient/foreground light a bit more, cuz at thumbnail size it looks kinda flat.

    keep on truckin brah

    also, mako lines = teh awsum
