dang, first off you will notice that most people wont do colors this bright cause they show every mistake but you pulled it off! Very impressive on the brush work.... there is a sticky that will tell you everything you need to know about what paints est to use. Not a big fan of the gloss look... If it was my toy I would do a black wash over the pads to create a shadow look and then do a flat clear coat sealer over the whole figure to get rid of the glossy look. Good job though!! You will go far. Let me know if you have any questions....

Look's great for a first man. Red and black always looks Cobra to me, which I like. For tips there are plenty of customs tutorials in the customs forum. Keep it up man, excellent start.

I think you did great for a first custom. Your paint job is pretty killer. You definatly got the skill to paint.
But like most of the folks say, go with flat colors, unless you are going for a shiny suit look. ex...Bio Hazard suit.
Otherwise terrific job.

now thatt is an interestingly cool concept. I always wondered why he was never on the night force anyways. Only suggestion i have is to hit him with a dullcoat or sem-gloss to tone down the shinyness. nice work.
