Aaaawwww yeah, first DA entry, and a bossly one to boot. This is my brothers self-moc, though it is built by me. You could call it a request or something. Also, it is pronounced Reh-Moc. You can find more pics here. [link]
Welcome to DA. This a good start. Though you might want to go change the picture size setting so we can make the photo bigger by clicking on it so its not so hard to see the detail. I also recommend you try some photo editing software and up the photo levels a little, brightness/contrast, saturation to bring back the color after brightening,if you aren't doing that already.
And here on DA, the best format for posting MOCs is to create collages with said photo editor, makes the presentation look all fancy and cool. Can't wait to see more man. You're gonna like it here I think, at least I hope.
Ah well its not hard to learn. Also, you can get freeware photo editors. I use myself. Its like a skeletal version of photo shop, but its got lots of plugins you can get and all that. It serves my needs for what I do. [link] This is my most recent photo edit(and MOC). I made this photo collage all using that program.
