    For my photocomic, Ironhide ends up with Bendy Prime's body (representing a character named Chalcyon) through a one in a million series of events, so I thought, "Wouldn't Wheeljack ('Downshift' now) do what he could to make Ironhide more comfortable in that body? If so, what would he do?"

    Ended up carving a new head for him... but I'm not happy with it. I'll use it as a standin until I can replace my tools, paints and brushes and make a much better head.

    Other than that, I simply masked off the forearms and panted the center bit, then masked off the wheels and painted the legs.

    And a bit closer on the head:

    That's why I decided to do him on this mold. It's rough and tough looking, nicely stocky, and it's also mostly red. :D 

    Too bad I couldn't find or afford a spray paint closer to his original brilliant red, though... yes, that's over a primer. >.<

    That's not bad at all... and a perfect fit for the character.

    It's also my first ever head sculpt. I'm just not used to sculpting things that large, ugh.

    Maybe the grill should be light blue to reflect the G1 colour-scheme; otherwise good job!

    That looks really nice, especially for a first attempt. I never would've thought of that mold for him, but it's perfect.

    ROFL, in my defense, they kept popping off LOOONG before I decided to do this, and I lost track of which went where.
