    Hi! This is my first time making a thread here so, hooray?

    Last week I dry brushed the heck outta my Shockwave and this is how he looks now!

    Pics are not showing him well because my camera is FRUSTRATING AND DIFFICULT

    I also lost the screw at the back of his head, but since its parts were glued togheter, it actually gave him slightly better neck articulation. How 'bout that?



    If you have an opinion, comment and let me know!

    Thanks guys!

    unfortunately it doesn't, because of the transformation. The front wheels and the head in his "what the heck mode" go to his back.

    Looks good. Keep at the drybrushing and you'll get better with every custom - generally speaking :) 

    Also, to help with pictures - make sure you have a room with plenty of light (I prefer using white daylight bulbs) and set your camera on something stable to avoid shaking and then take the pictures WITHOUT using flash. Keep in mind that you need to have plenty of light in order to take good pics without flash.

    The problem with flash is that it reflects all the dust and lint in a picture that you can't normally see. This can make your custom look worse than in hand.

    Keep it up!

    Thanks man, I'll keep that in mind :) 

    My room is quite dark despite the white light bulbs I have, but there's one of these laying around in my house:[​IMG]

    Do you thing that'll do next time?
