Wow! Lot's O posts!
Okay to make the "crown" thingy I start with a cube and split it in all the places I need to give it basic shape then extrude out the spikes shaping as I go!
As for blueprints... I wish!!! I have them for Deathscythe H custom from the movie Endless Waltz! All the others I just take the action figures I have and take pics of them with my digital cam. then use those as the rep pics so that I can get the basic shape then I just use my eyes looking at the toy and get the detail in! So far it's worked really well for me!
Oh and my gundam design that I made would rock the world of a Zeon mobil suite!
here's a pic of him!
May the force be with you...always!
