I don't think I could EVER get as clean as Cameron's Gearpunk MOCs... I don't have enough of the right peices :P
On the contrary, you have many small pieces as well as current pieces and YOU have equal talent. If you look at Cameron's Gearpunk Mocs or other creations, he does not use much gears or parts. He just selects a few pieces and place them in the right places and creates something that has never been seen before. Also and most importantly, he is VERY VERY good at taking pictures. His background is so clean. He shoots at a closeup using macro and angles to highlight his creations. His mocs are not design for much movement but more for display which suits him just fine. That last criteria frees him from some limitations in designing.
