Thanks @baneofdemon22 I'm glad you liked the Sokidan pic,this effect works really nicely imo. Thank you Branjitaiami2eapei2roshisurprise it was really hard for me to finish it as I work all day, so my available times were mostly the weekends; Adrenaline yeah, I took your advice on the skin tone and I was happy that the paint didn't come off after these poses haha, and I get you on the finding time to customize, although I'm not a father yet haha, just happily married

Hi everybody! this is another WIP picture of my Tien. I dare to say I'm half way done, but still a lot to do.
This is a cool effect that I got from an app, which I applied just to enhance the green. For some reason my stupid phone doesn't capture the accurate green. It has a light green and my phone captures a dark green -.-. As you can see, I followed Bran and Adrenaline's advice on removing everything I had done and sculpt the chest; basically sculpt him shirtless, and then add the green vest.
What I need to do:
- Define his arm muscles because right now it's just muscle mass. - Perhaps add a bit more of green vest (I always forget how that is called lol) on his shoulder, to cover it a tiny bit more? but I'm not sure, what do you think? - Sand and paint what is left. - Make his Kikoho hands, make a dodonpa hand, and probably the crane style hands.
The one thing that annoys me is that his right arm (from this 1st person perspective) falls of easily -.-, I used to have that issue with my sdcc Piccolo too, but this one is worse; any tips on how to tighten this without taking away the articulation? I have no clue.
I will most likely sand his lower pants a bit more, to make it look smoother on some parts.
All right that is it. Once this is finished, you can expect a slow motion video from Tien vs Yamcha , that's something I'm looking forward to.

He is looking great. You're the first customizer to make a Tien Figuarts with the accurate muscle size. Kudos! Obviously, you plan to give him more muscle definition, so that's good. My only other recommendations right now are to get rid of the line above his 3rd eye (looks like remnants of the previous one you sculpted) and then add some apoxie on the existing vest piece, because the folds in it right now are a bit long and exaggerated.
