This is my first mini-munny custom i have done, My second ever custom. I have only done a 3" dunny before this one. But this is what i consider to be my first custom, because i didnt really try on my dunny. This one i really thought about the design, then i drew it out then i executed the design how i wanted it to look like, This is the first time i have painted with acrylics, so i have learned alot about painted just with this one project. I still need alot, alot of practice. Painting is always a learning process.

Here it is: It is basically a houndstooth design all over and then it has a big Old English "M" on the head. Then on the back it has the word "Midas" and thats pretty much it.

Please tell me what you think, i would like some constructive criticism.

I really dig the houndstooth and the ears....but the big M is distracting I think.

Great job on that pattern though...man. You and yoink need to collab sometime.

The black and white pattern is wonderful and I like the fact the it doesn't run in the same direction on the body and the head. The big red M is fitting addition. I enjoy the size of it as well which makes use of the munny being an object instead of a flat surface. In my opinion the ears are much more distracting than the big 'M'. They don't make sense compared to the rest. The pattern on your munny is rather rigid and the ears now look a bit like you had the fear that without some extra color your custom might look boring or too simple.

With all that being said, please keep on doing customs you're quite well on your way with this one.
