3 Give yourself plenty of possibilities
When kitbashing, I tend to try out different combinations and always look for a good general silhouette, whether it’s a character or vehicle. It’s important not to limit yourself to existing elements. Sometimes it’s also good to build up basic shapes and finish up with greeble elements. That’s how I start to work on the torso part: I begin with a ring around the neck, then add a ribcage and finish with some more motorbike elements.
