    I wasn't too familiar with the character until I googled it just now, but yeah that making this out of Laserbeak was a pretty good idea. I like the color scheme - it's simple but not too monochromatic.

    The paint is a little thick as far as I can tell. There are some paint chips on the wing joints, so you might wanna sand those areas a little to avoid chipping. A dark colored wash to bring out the panel lines and some paint on the guitar strings might help as well.

    I don't mean to sound negative, just wanted to point out some things you could add to improve the piece. :)

    Nice work! Very crisp paint work, there alittle to thick though in some areas. Nice vibrant colors.

    Now seeing that you have made Sundor which is an Autobot Spy. Do you plan to make Soundwave into Blaster?

    I'll look into those things, but what exactly is a wash?

    Thanks. I don't plan on making Blaster from Soundwave though.

    A wash is using highly diluted paint to that seeps into panel lines, seams, etc. :)  Check out some of our Radicons tutorials for more info.
