    My take on the Dark Ruler...

    I took better pics with a more pro light tent background because I want Megatrons' colors to show better. I gave him several washes throughout his armor and I hope that comes across.

    Very Spurt Reynolds-esque. I love it.

    Very very awesome. How do you get the highlights to look like that?

    Thanks Garibaldiprime, this custom took me about a month man. There was a lot of waiting for full paint curing and then a lot of tedious edge highlighting. Basically I took a synthetic hand brush and wet the tips with paint and then swiped it back and forth on paper and then followed the edges with the brush's tip.

    Hope that helps.

    I didn't think it was possible to make Megatron look even "darker." This looks great for the character.

    Thanks Blurr, I have acquired some new skills that I've pretty much learned how to apply correctly. I am glad it shows in this Meggie.

    Really likin this man. I think i much prefer the darker paint scheme. The red is great too subtle but effective. I take it this is an enamel paint job ?
