    Looks awesome dude! :bay 

    Since you already have this done, why not model the hulk head and do a repaint into the original version of this toy? :)

    thanks guys.
    perhaps i'll do the shattered glass grimmlock and normal hulk down the road. currently i'm working on a little classics comic book project and getting the models done is not that hard but coming up with backgrounds is slowing me down.
    i'll have some pics of prime up by tomorrow

    Looking pretty good there, grimmlock. A few issues with how the thumb is posed, and some stuff with facial proportions (I think eyes need to be lower so that they're more centered on the equatorial line of the head).

    Love the glow effect for the eyes, you've got the right intensity down without washing out the surrounding details.

    thanks guys.
    Venksta, the lighting is nothing more than the infinite light with a lower intensity. what i've been using that has really made a difference is the fx tree. you can change the lighting and many other things before final render is done.

    Starcracker, you have an amzing eye. for some reason the model hands that i have switch kinetics on me with out me knowing and caused the thumb and fingers to move in a wierd way. i corrected this two days ago after i had done these renders though. you should see a difference in the next couple of characters i do.

    Jetfire's hands look a little small holding that gun. Is it really big, or are his hands really baby sized? Amazing renders besides that! Great Job! I love the "Classics War Within Grimlock" :thumbs2:

    Are you using FK controllers or IK for the fingers?

    I use ik, but the hands had switched to fk. not sure how that happened.

    Cryo the hands are small on all of them i went back and fixed it two days ago but again it was after i rendered all these images and i didn't want to re-render them again. i promise then next batch of characters will be on point. thanks for the feedback glad you like the grimlock character. wouldn't mind seeing that turned into a figure

    I was wondering when that question was going to come up.
    once i'm done with my initial cast of autobot characters, i will start on the decepticons. My story will have a very similiar beast wars cast feel.

    Optimus obviously will lead the group, ironhide will take the place of rhinox, bumblebee will take the place of rattrap, hot rod will take the place of cheetor, silverbolt will be silverbolt and grimlock will take the place of dinobot.

    for my decepticon starters, i will have megatron as a tank, onlaught, starscream, dropshot and astrotrain.

    Dropshot is LOVE considering he's nothing more than an anonymous Micromaster in G1 proper.

    Btw, what software are you using, Max or Maya, and what versions, 2008?

    i love the alt mode. i had to put him in do to lack of decepticon characters. most are just repaints of the same figures. but the story will tie all in very nicely

    i use xsi 5.0

    I'm not a repaint fan. i don't really like some of the repaint characters, so i'm not doing them except for the seekers. but i will be adding more as the story goes along. for now i want to keep a small number of characters from each side until the story progresses.
