    Update: A few people have mentioned that Skywarp needs more silver/ grey to be more show and G1 accurate.

    Ive created a very quick digi (emphasis on the very quick) of what I might do to make it more accurate.

    What do you guys think???

    Ever since the release in the UK I have been addicted to Transformers Animated, and having seen some of the Awesome work others have come up with I decided to start my Animated Seekers collection.

    I'm still deciding what to do with Starscream, so I decided to start with Skywarp.

    This is a fairly straight forward repaint of Starscream, but I hope you all like it.

    All comments welcome.

    Thanks for the comments, I love the Seekers too and the Animated mold is quality!! I plan on doing as many as I can, maybe even a few new characters of my own!

    Yeah they are releasing Skywarp, but living in the UK we have to wait ages for these things to come out and most of repaints never get released.

    Thanks Redline, the paint was from the Gamesworkshop and it's called Liche Purple! Saw it and thought it would be perfect for Skywarp! I think the colour worked out well!!

    Excellent choice of colourscheme! The silver chest would have made it more G1- and Ani-accurate, but the purple works beautifullly. And I think you've just the right amount of grey and yellow accenting to stop it looking too dark. :thumb

    Thanks for the comments, I'm actually thinking about adding some more silver to the chest, several people have mentioned it and the more I look the more I agree that it needs the silver!!

    I don't know... I agree the silver would make the bot mode look more g1 accurate, but I'm really liking that purple. Plus I think it looks really good for the alt mode! And that flat black is awesome for skywarp! But you're the artist, if you feel you need to make the change, go for it.

    Now that, I like! But I would suggest adding a few more silver highlights to the alt mode as well, just so you don't have just two tiny spots of silver on a jet that's primarily black and purple. Maybe some pin stripes or something...

    do a combined stripe like classics skywarp... have the silver wide at front and thin out as the purple widens out. that'll make it flow good in jet mode, and also add silver to the torso of the robot mode without getting rid of the purple there.

    Looks good! And, as far your update goes... I'd say, whether it looks "G1" or not is irrelevant - if it's how you wanted it to be, it's right :)
