Some swirling attempts. To swirl a body or not?

So, I've this RG body I've painted white (Click the pics to get them bigger):



I'm trying to do a black and white swirl. This is my latest attempt I did today. Gotta experiment a little more but to my eyes it's getting quite nice.





Or what do you think? Should I swirl the body or not and leave it plain white (boring...)?

PS: Here are also two other swirls that didn't work out:

It had way too much white but became interesting, though. I'd like it darker so I'll stick with the B/W colouring.

I'm quite determinated to swirl the body. It's a leftover one. I've a blank Jem body as well, but guess I won't swirl it. Yet =)

The almost white swirl is cool, nice "marble" effect!

Definately swirl. Those look good.

I agree that the white swirl looks interesting.

Thanks! I will swirl the body with more black than white. I don't care what you say =)

Tomorrow I'll swirl an RG body shape to see how much paint is needed. Next week I'm supposed to swirl the real body o_O Let's see what kind of disaster/mess will it be..

Good! that's just as it should be...

However, after seeing your examples, if I ever get another swirl done I might go for one with a lot of light colour rather than dark....

Good luck with the swirl!
