    I'm not really good at repaints but after getting ER Optimus I couldn't help but feel some color was missing. Against my better judgement, I did some sharpie coloring! I couldn't get everywhere I wanted cause I don't have small sharpies and I only did the most glaring sections.

    You should follow your judgement. I can tell you from personal experience, Sharpies are horrible for repainting. It never fully dries and rubs off on anything it comes in contact. We all start somewhere when customizing, let this be a learning experience. That said, it really does need color. The shade of blue does work well, but like I said, Sharpies are just the worst.

    Thanks. So far the Sharpie dried pretty well and it's not rubbing all over thankfully but I'm keeping my eye on it. I might get some model paint next month and use a q-tip or something.
