    For not knowing how to do this, you're killing it. You should be posting a blog or video series chronicling the learning process because I'd love to see the thought that goes into such artistry.

    Holy crap! He looks like the model from the Transformers app game! Wow! That is nothing short of stunning I feel like a trick is being played on my eyes.

    Are you a professional painter/illustrator as well? When you're finished please stage some great shots.

    100% honesty incoming.

    You did an amazing job replicating the cell shaded 3D effect. :thumb  :thumb 

    However, to me at least, it just doesn't work on a toy.

    Thank you. It's a tough call because I don't want to make it sit too high in the recessed area of his chest or too low in the area that sticks just below the recessed area...what do you suggest?

    The reprolabels set has the symbol in the recessed area and I think it looks much better.

    I've been contemplating stripping the symbol off mine and putting the label in that spot, but I'm not sure how the metallic finish will react.

    That actually does look better there than I thought. I'll put one there in that recessed areas as well now. Thanks for posting!

    As far as stripping the old one, I am not sure if I would try to remove it man.
