Another Botcon has come and gone and Sector 70 brings you complete art contest coverage once again!
I work on custom projects at a glacial rate nowadays. Back in
the halcyon days of new Alternator releases, I would crank out a custom over a weekend instead twice a year. I realized, via conversation with Mr. Warcry, that part of my problem is that I plateaued with paintwork with this thing back in 2008.
Ever since then, most of the projects I've started have failed to kindle the excitement of seeing something come together, not knowing whether I could pull it off. After Halfshell, I knew darn well I could, so the driving force of seeing something realized had been mitigated. It's really only been twice since then that I actually stuck with a project to completion, first in making a Sidearm Sideswipe for Cliffy
, and second in making a Generations Treadshot
. Yep, I count two proper custom jobs in something like six years.
It's a waste considering all of the stuff I've learned how to do!
