It's most apparent in this image. There's an all-over texturing that I'm not sure is dust or grittiness to the paint. But there's also a relatively large blemish that's definitely not dust on the right side of the chest (figure's right, viewer's left) just to the upper right of the ring. Looks like a glob of paint. The next most apparent area is the head, mostly just above the visor but a bit in the mouth region as well.
Oh, one other small aesthetic opinion...the lacing in the back of the webgear is disturbingly corset-like. Reminds me of the 2007 con female troopers. I think functional snaps like used elsewhere in the webgear would be less corset-y.

This is the best Snake Eyes I have ever seen.

What you're seeing on the body and gear is the texture of the material for the most part, with a little bit of dust thrown in for good measure. The blemish you're seeing is actually a small spot of glue that I simply didn't catch. These things happen sometimes - oh well, it really doesn't take away from the overall fig imo, and evidently many others. The head/face is showing some dust bits, but other than that it's fine. I apologize for not taking my photos in a sealed, environmentally controlled room.
Thanks for your eagle eyes though.

I am a professional artist (graphic designer) as well. I also have done some customs and even one similar to this one (check the sig). But I find Shadowsun's criticisms to be in vain really. Complaining about Snake Eyes being too black visually is just absurd. Also the canvas totally fits the real world feel you were able to bring to the figure. I tend to think that criticism was more just to stand alone against a sea of wellwishers.
I think you did an amazing job and all this nitpicking is bound to happen when you hit something out of the park like this.

And my other criticism:
I do have to say I’m a little disappointed you didn’t get out your micro / nano engineering kit and make a working compass, and a working watch (that of course would need to keep perfect time) for the other wrist.
But otherwise you did an ok job - it's not too bad...
(in case no one got it I'm being a sarcastic smart ass above, and I'm just kidding!!! - This is truly one of the best customs I have even seen, and the best Snake eyes I have ever seen - I would so buy one of these and pay good money for it! )

I would push a little a little handicapped kid out of the way to get to one of those if it was hanging on a peg in a toy isle. It looks that awesome.

First you make a paratrooper withOUT a working altimeter, and now the "compass" doesn't even point true North?
Man, I thought you were progressing, but it's clear to me you're just not serious about your hobby or life in general. I hope you at least put a working satellite phone in one of those pouches.
And would it kill you to make a smg with a fully functional bolt and receiver mechanism, bullet-filled magazines, and a removable barrel? And give him a steel sword, for God's sake! Real mute ninja spec ops soldiers can't chop a damn thing with a styrene blade.
Tomorrow's Festivus and I'm really disappointed in you, young man.
With that said, everybody's entitled to their opinion fellas, and sometimes the constructive criticism is the most helpful, even though it might sting a bit.
