darn you guys were up late on this one...

hey VP the beginner's tutorial is great - very well done. =D> now do one on painting techniques - Hercules commands it.

ebay is all about timing and having the right words in your auction title so people can find it but it's also about demand - mainstream Marvel and DC characters are always hot. Wildcats might not be so high on the demand list with the public right now but when the revamped series with Jim Lee doing the art comes out (is it out already?) then it will be time to strike.

sorry if I'm restating the obvious and already covered.

i like that aspect too. It really depends I guess. Ive never really seen a cool fig in a fabric coat but grifter. Gambits is too big and makes him look retarded and so does puns. I like how grifters sleeves are rolled up. maybe if gambit and pun had tighter sleeves I think it would look cooler. I just like rubber ones like the one I used for my pun mod. Its super detailed and has buttons and buckles that I think look more real. But in both cases I would have to day "if its done right ill like it" X-Men classics gambit looks dumb in rubber..lol.

You cant tell me that my Vash the stampede would look better in fabric, I mean COME ON..lol

If done right, your Vash would look better in a fabric coat. But, it would be VERY HARD to do right. I'll be getting to work on my sewing tutorial when I start on a new Grifter. (I just know I'm going to like it too much and keep both of them :D )

On your line of doing the same character as someone else and getting no cash:

My Masterpice Motormaster was up for 5 days and I didn't get a bid till 12hrs left on the last day. He sold for $25.00, 1 bid. I sculpted his correct head from scratch, completely matched all his colors and gave him a remolded and sculpted set of feet that could tow a trailer in semi mode.

Check out custom formers the other day and some else did the same thing I did, however left on Primes head, didn't change the feet and left them blue, BLUE, a color Motormaster never had. This was just a Prime with a black upper body. He pulled $70 for painting an uppe half of a Prime black.

And on the same subject:

Jin painted a Megatron Classic grey and with his old school colors. He has done this multiple times now and I haven't seen one go less than $100.00. I seen another person did one as well. The job was just as good ever better since he got Megs eye color right (Red not Green) and he didn't have a bid.

I don't get it.
