Nice, lots of highlighting going on.
That looks good to me, good job.
Outstanding paint job.

I dunno... It honestly looks a bit like the metals were all painted grey. It seems that you have the skill for NMM, just you haven't found the right technique. To really understand NMM, you must not try to find any similarities between it and regular highlighting, else you will end up just highlighting out the edges. What generally is done, is the areas of nmm are painted in a mid grey, highlighted, then the shady areas shaded. You often have to take account for many different things when choosing the placement of the highlights, such as; Light source (is it the sun?), Tone of the metal (dark? light? gold? silver?), glint points (mostly depends on the shape), and bending the highlights to match the curvature of the PK, shoulder pad, bioniks, etc. This all may seem WAAAAY to complicated, but this dog's bark is much worse that its bite. Once you see some real shiny metals, study them, and get used to NMM, it becomes very easy to do all of that. Always edge highlight, but with very thin white lines, gradient upwards on convex surfaces, down on concave, opposites for double-edged swords... Enough babble: See for yourself! Reference pics

Looks great to me, I really like the skin; very Hulk-esque!
I've never attempted NMM personally but you appear to have done it well, the Power Klaw looks very nice indeed. The only criticism I have is that I feel the gold/yellow belt symbol looks to bright. I'd either tone it down, or change it for a colour; I just can't see yellow fitting in that model because you already have an array of other bright colours.
Nevertheless, great paint job. Rep for sharing such a nice model!
i love your paint job, it reminds me off the way that i paint my models but you do a better job. the extreme highlights on the pants make it look leathery but dusty at the same time, i really like it.
the NMM that you used looks good in my opinion, sure it might not be the standard NMM that you see here and there, but this style fits the rest of the model. plus it makes the metal look all black and greasy in my opinion.
great job man, nice looking model!
Good effort - like the red cape - some nice shading there.
The NMM isn't bad, brave of you to try. I've only just started trying NMM and I think top marks to go to anyone who makes it half decent.
Mate that is awsome
