prime silvastreak

knock outs sister silvastreak is as fast as him. but prefers the rapid fire of her mag-acc Uzis.

simple head swap used the prime arce head, and added paint, and a couple of duke nukem Uzis with silly straws for the handles

new pics further down

I have no idea what invalade is but I assume it tastes similar to lemonade?

Anyway... Momma always said if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything, but that won't help you improve your skills.
Honestly to me, nothing about this gets remotely close to working at all. It all looks very rushed and even the insignia decal is crooked.
I'd suggest slowing down, thinking out your concept a bit more, and making sure you cover as much of the original colors as possible when creating an all new character from other figure parts. A good way to make sure you do that is to mask off parts such as windows and wheels that you don't want to paint, then spray him with a couple of thin coats of a base color. Once that is fully dry, you can use masking tape to create simple designs that will be sprayed in another color. Using less brush painting and more sprays for the main coverage will get you a much cleaner overall look. You can then go in with a brush and paint in the smaller details, but make sure you are very careful to stay in the lines, and apply very thin coats (letting each dry before the next) to ensure you avoid that streaky thick paint look.
Posting a WIP of your concept before painting is a good way to get motivation or find that maybe your idea isn't working well, but if you made this for yourself and you are happy with it, I suppose that's what matters.
Not every custom comes out fantastic, but we all learn from practice. I look forward to seeing your work improve!

Yeah... use a redeco of a toy mold from the 80s for your argument...

As Unicron said, the paint job looks a bit rushed. I'd probably suggest slowing things down a bit for smoother paint applications.

ok well some ones gona call me a jerk for this. my reference to glyph was while i thought very valid was made with jest if i offended you oddguy im sorry. Unicron9 ive seen your work epic stuff i particularly enjoyed your Junkload Van Dam. but for you to use the Momma always said line then proceed the way you did was i think out of line. that line tainted every thing you said after. though ill give you props on the lemonade joke that was kinda funny. soymonk glyph was not just an 80s repaint she was drawn very blocky and lacking in a feminine shape. heck ive actually been tempted to replace armada unicrons head with a barbie head, tho i cant bring my self to modify a 50 dollar toy. as far as it being rushed i paint with brushes and i do let it sit between painting. i hope this doesn't turn in to a flame war.

I think if the OP replaced the hands with more feminine hands (say a spare set of Arcee Prime's for instance if he has them) and give Silvastreak way more silver with some spot coloring, it'd work just fine.

Tho' if you really want to make a fembot out of a Prime figure, the RiD Vehicon would be my choice.

ok alekesam i took your advice and used the hands from the dinozaurs pterodactyl had to add some balls to the hand. and i had to mod the guns a bit. i also added some more silver and a couple of stickers. oh and you said use a vehicon as a fembot and i got to thinking hmmm.... shrine maiden.
