    I get a vibe that some people are sick of Bumblebee but I had to show this off anyway! I did this guy before learning that to do the silver dry brush for a metal look, you actually want to paint it black first, rather than dry brushing on the gray plastic. :-/ So he could look better but he's not bad looking I think. I like how the gold and copper details came out. I also tried to do a little bit of a worn look on the edges. Obviously I have a lot to learn there to. Hopefully I'll get better with each one! Pretty much all I did in alt mode was the black ground effects, the tail pipes, brake rotors, and yellow on the spoiler. Please let me know what you think!

    Not bad at all. Looks much better than just gray plastici would say try to make your more intricate details like to gold and copper apps more full though. Completely cover those pieces int their appropriate colors. It will help make them pop more.

    Yeah I considered that. In person it looks worn or dirty. I kind of like it so I left it. I'll consider that in the future though, thanks!

    No worries, I want feedback like that, especially from guys like you that know much more than me.
    And thanks for the compliment! :)
