    I trimmed down the "ear" antenna, and his original forehead crest, built the new crest and moustaches out of some lego parts, and glued it on and painted it. The hardest part was making sure the crest didn't hit things when he transformed.

    awesome i think the drybrushing definitely does add to the ancient battle scarred feeling of him.
    i too think that he was supposed to be alpha trion especially since he seemed to be more of a scientist than a leader

    I can understand what you're saying, but the dry brushing doesn't help make him look worn like you're hoping.. It would make sense to have some badly worn areas and some areas that aren't quite as beaten up.

    It's a real nice custom, just the dry brushing takes away from it and distracts the eye a little much.

    Perhaps some layered drybrushing might help achieve the effect you want
