    Once I finally got Animated Soundwave he just screamed to be repainted... and this just seemed natural.

    Here are the concept digibashes. I'm still playing with the colours (red/gold distribution). Oh yeah... that puke orange is supposed to be gold (but I suck at photoshop, so use your imagination).

    Soundwave/blaster is still in the shop. I hope to get him done by/over the weekend.

    ========= WEEKEND UPDATE (with Dennis Miller... Sorry had to do it) 30 Aug 2008 =========

    Finshed the prelim paint job. I was a little impatient and smudged the window with my finger... dammit. Still some touching up to do, but this is the basic finished product.

    Overall, I'm fairly happy with it. Except the windows... It was hard to get the look I wanted, and this seems to be the best I could get. Might have to be redone at a later date.

    The flash really makes the back end look like a different colour than the rest, but it looks fine in the real world.

    Here is the biggest issue with the whole project. I mentioned some difficulty removing the cassette door and well I think I kind of screwed things up. I cannot get it to close properly anymore.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Looks good. Maybe i can suggest painting the strings and small details on Buzzsaw to give him more 'oomph'.

    I was actually thinking about doing that, but I'm afraid it might look too busy. I'll revist the idea once everything is said and done.

    so you painted it black? when looking at your pictures i thought you dyed it because thats how mine looked when i dyed them except more wavy :D . anyways i like your bold red windows they are a nice contrast and scream evil for some reason. i also like your gold thighs that looks very good i did not even think of that. the red circles behind his head looks great as well nice and clean . can't wait to see how you finish him up :thumbs2:

    The tapedoor problem might be warpage from the dyebath,in which case it could have been much worse.
