    Well this is my 2nd try at repainting a figure.

    Ive always liked the protoform prime so decided to repaint one, this was done a while ago but jus took the pictures now. I havent seen anyone do it yet so i painted the red patterns as seen in the concepts.

    That looks fantastic, I originally was going to attempt to make it look like that concept but did not want to do all the red engraving but you did a bang up job. :thumb

    I never had any real interest in these Protoforms until people started giving them these metallic repaints. Wow... these look great! The weathered metal treatment really brings out the details in the mold... which are awesome.

    I'm doing the same effect with my protoform Arcee, not crazy about painting it, hopefully a nice red thin sharpie does the trick.

    again, nice work.

    Looks like he used brushes and a gray t-shirt lol.

    The red adds some very small details making the overall design look great. Not dark enough to distract the eye in robot mode but a prominent feature in the vehicle mode. Nice work.

    Sorry for the late reply been a bit busy lately.... anyways, I tried masking the shapes out but they were jus too small and tedious so i ended up jus painting them on using a brush! I was a bit scared at first incase i messed up :( 

    Hi, yea i jus used my grey top as a background and took a digital photo. Then found a border on the internet and jus over layed it on the photo.

    He's on the ebay forum now if anyones interested in him :) 
    Time to repaint my brawl/jazz/protoform prime set :)
