Hi guys. I'm somewhat new to the world of customizing Transformers (at least with paint, considering the only customizations I've done were on PRiD Starscream, Cliffjumper, and Optimus, each using Red Sharpie), and I thought I'd start my own Touch-Ups & Customs thread. I'll be busy a lot these next weeks customizing as much as I can of my PRiD & AM figures. LATEST CUSTOMFigure:
PRiD Knock OutType:
Knock Out is finally done after weeks of painting him. Let's start with the 'bot mode. I didn't do a whole lot to him in 'bot mode exclusively aside from the black headcrest, kneecaps, elbow joints, crotchplate, and feet. I was going to do the shoulder-pads, but I didn't care too much about how they looked. I took a very, very thin coat of pearl white to his face, but it's barely noticeable. Any other details really shine in car mode than robot.
I also customized the Energon Prod, which isn't too important, but looks better, no?
Knock Out's car mode is where it's at. I spent the most time on him in this mode. While the doors aren't completely accurate, they look better than my attempt to make them accurate.
The rims are all painted in gold, and the door-handles are gold & black. I painted the grill a Silver color, which I made myself using an antique silver color (which is a rather dark, ugly silver) and a pearl white color mixed together. I tinted his windows by painting them all black, which was the result of me painting his rear windshield. I also painted his "license plate area," and the bumper, basing my coloring off of seeing his car mode in "Speed Metal."

What do you guys think? Tell me what I should do next.
