G1 colors DOTM sideswipe: My very first custom!

Hello all. Here is my very first attempt at customizing anything. It's just a basic repaint of the deluxe DOTM sideswipe. I saw it in a walmart and said why not? Please give me any sort of feedback you guys can. Specifically I would like to know some tips on getting even coats, and even picture taking.
The main problems with the figure are of course the somewhat uneven coat, a bit of uneveness on the lines, and the picture itself (the flash makes it look a lot nicer).

Enjoy and comment.

Looks pretty good. on my last one I did really thin coats and it all turned out much smoother. I'm actually planning on doing this to my DOTM Sideswipe too. I love the red details in robot mode.
My customs all together.

Very spiffy, it kinda looks like Dino/Mirage :)!
