    I have always loved the skyboarding optimus primal, the thing is i always hated his color scheme. So i was in bed and it hit me do a ultra magnus style. So this is my hopes at trying something that's close to that thought.
    Now, this is my second try at customizing, so be a little bit forgiving, the last time i tried there was a customizer who i'd never take out for drinks for his over zealous beat down on my first custom.
    I love the customs by frenzyrumble, spurtreynolds, unicron9, cheetimusprime, i totally become envious everytime i see the masterpieces they make along with others.

    please help me out with figuring where to place red highlights.

    Foe a second custom, this is pretty damn cool. While it isn't screaming Magnus to me, it's still very good. I think some red highlights will really make this pop.

    Looks great. As for the red, maybe add it in where some of the vents are, anywhere that looks like lights or veins, and give him a bit of a Fall of Cybertron look to him. That's only if you want to. I think it looks pretty nice the way it is, but agree that a little bit of red would spice it up.

    To me, I'd say just add a bit of a bright red in some of the vents, especially on the backpack, maybe some little intentations that might resemble lights, or the design on the beast mode chest, and see how that looks. You don't want to put a whole lot of red on there since it looks great to me, but just a little bit to make him look like he's glowing with energy would be good.

    As for the comment batmanprime made, I think he's trying to tell you, in a snarky way, that it's great and he wishes he had one.

    i love this so much. i never really felt that the mastodon from beast wars neo was a good beast form for ultra magnus. i would do red accents on the ape hair in bot mode and the shoulder Armour and arm details. maybe some red details on the hover board too just to bring the whole thing together. still though for a second custom this is some damn fine work. ive only done 2 customs myself and id literally kill( no one important lol) to have talent like yours. kudos

    Backhanded compliment. Humorous way of saying I like enough to put in my collection.
