These are the first customs that I have actually ever finished, so please give me some critiques as well. I put a lot of work into these and would welcome any constructive criticism.

C.A.R.L
Canadian Armed Robot Liaison
Paranoid of an attack from their neighbours to the south, the Canadian government commissioned the creation of an armed robot worthy of defending the Canadian border. After an incident during the creation of C.A.R.L the project was scrapped and so was C.A.R.L, after hearing of the project C.A.R.L was rescued from a government warehouse by the Guardian and joined the ranks of Zeta Flight.

The Ogopogo
From the depths of the Okanagan Lake comes the Ogopogo, the large lake creature was originally a demon possessed man who had murdered a well known and respected man. To pay for his sins, the Indian gods changed him into a lake serpent so he would forever be at the scene of his crime and suffer eternal remorse. Now with the opportunity to make amends for his sins he vows to protect all innocents against the evil that he once was.

Yvwi
From a race of small humanoid nature spirits, sometimes, He is usually invisible but sometimes reveal themselves as miniature child-sized people. The Yunwi Tsunsdi are benevolent creatures who frequently help humans in Cherokee stories, but they have magical powers and are said to harshly punish people who are disrespectful or aggressive towards them. After wandering out of the forest and interacting with humans, Yvwi decides not to return but to instead live amongst the humans and help the race that he has become so fond of.

Thanks!
I actually experimented with a few different paints on these. Since I didn't know much about painting before I started other than what I've read on custom forums.
For C.A.R.L I used dollar store paints I wanted a grainy junk yard look to him which I think I got only problem its that the paint chips easily.
For Yvwi I again used dollar store paints but mixed it with pledge with future floor polish. I got the mossy forest look I wanted and the paint is much much stronger.

Next for the ogopogo I used a base cost of krylon fusion spray paint this made the cheap dollar store plastic really sticky. I followed it up with a coat if tamiya spray which actually got rid if the stickiness. Gave me the super dark green shiny color I wanted almost like slimy water. Then used some dollar store paint with future for the light green which have it the perfect mossy look and feel. And used tamiya paint for the eyes.

I learnt a lot about paint during this project.
