    This is my first attempt from Encline's Metal Mayhem DVD. He used a Grimlock for his instructions so I figured I would do the same. First time really dry brushing an entire figure, so a bit of a learning curve for me... comments and critiques welcomed...

    That's like pre-war Gladiator Grimlock. I am loving this.

    Sorry, should have specified a little more clear, this is my first complete dry brushing of an entire figure.

    I knew that gap filler kit is the way to go on this. Nice job, man.

    Awesome man! I think it looks great.

    My only personal critique, (just an opinion) I would like to see me variation in the metal shades used..but that is my personal taste for depth and age. As it, it represent the metal look really well..

    Thanks Encline, I agree with your take. I actually missed the Grey Metallic step, so that might have caused the lack of variation, but that was my mistake and not a reflection of the Instructions, which where very well done. Great job on the DVD though. I definitely learned a ton from it..
