hmmm... that's a tough one. It really just takes a lot of practice, the mechs I was building 2 years ago were awful, but every time I built something I'd discover new techniques and improve on others.

The best way to go about it is to look around MOCpages and other sites to see what people have done in the past and just start building; it's okay if you're first few mechs aren't spectacular, but if you upload them and ask for critique some people might be able to give you some big pointers.

I don't know if any of that is useful, but hopefully it gives you some place to start. As for Dawn Forge specifically, these mechs are typically dark bley heavy and have a studless finish and bulky appearance. Contrary to what many builders do, to make something studless does not mean put a tile on every visible surface, but instead try to explore some SNOT technique.

Ok, thanks for the advice! :)
