    Now that you have work done, this goes in RC, I think.

    Secondly, it looks like it's your first custom. Now do you see why I said start small? This looks like chunks of colour slapped together, none of the detail on the mould shows through at all. If you'd done a smaller TF it wouldn't be as noticeable. I realise you have painted in the lines between panels, but it looks like you used a really thick pen/brush, which ends up looking slightly, um, horrendous. That and it's black, and lining in black is rarely ever good. Use grays.

    I say go look up tutorials on dry brushing (I used Jin's tutorial at Jin Saotome's Dangerous Toys! Custom action figures, Marvel Legends, Transformers, guides), washing, and just paint in the finer detail. There are a lot of moulded bits here and there on that mold, faux cable, pneumatics, panel lines, that need to be seen. And not in black or silver or purple. Paint in the details in a colour that's not prominent on the character already. Some yellows, reds, copper even would take you far.

    Also, gloss paints never work on such a big project. And I can see it was a gloss black you used, due to the camera flash being quite distinctive. Use flat black. Gloss at that scale doesn't work, trust me. Your purple, it looks like Tamiya's purple, no? I'll not go into why I hate that purple, but there's a good reason for it.

    Relax. I'm not saying it's crap, I'm just saying that there are lot of things that could be improved. ;)
