    Nearly complete with this commission. I still have to complete the fists, a bit more detail to the forearms, and the actual mini con weapon. The customer wanted something more detailed over the stock figure and more dark in character looking.

    Vehicle mode to come in awhile...

    UPDATE: Finished with Mini Con
    UPDATE: Added Vehicle Pics

    Thanks! The flash really reflects too much light on the chest. It is actually titanium silver with steel mixed one on top of the other and then accented with chrome to the edges to mimic wear. The flash destroyed that look unfortunately. When I am finished, I'll try to post up better lighted pics.

    Update: Mini con

    Just finished the Mini Con. I added a little bit of effects in the thrusters to look like it's afterburners are on.

    Thanks! This is a figure that could've gotten many different color schemes and it was fun to work on too.

    genius on the thruster effect - trompe l'oeil FTW.

    and Prime don't look half-bad at all, he's the rough-and-tumble version that he should've been in the first place.

    Thanks Prodigal! After I painted this one up, I want one for myself. I managed to persuade my kids into giving me theirs to paint up. This one is practically finished (just waiting on the customer to confirm) but mine is still a WIP - I'll probably change only a couple things to distinguish the two.

    That's crazy. The red looks like it's almost glowing. I agree, maybe some more red in the bicep region would be good.

    This is great. You do comissions now?

    Thanks Iron, yes sir, I am commissioning. Customer only wanted hands glowing on this one but continuing the red up the arms is a great idea! Thanks guys!
