    It's my birthday, so it's a good day to finally upload a Transformer again, since it's been so long!

    It's HA Sideswipe. I couldn't be more happy with him! He's just excellent.

    ...Except for the plastic-paintjob....

    These are some night-photos, made 'em last night. Daylight-photos will be uploaded shortly. I'd like to thank mangrasshopper for the inspiration for this baby.

    Love the way you added in the copper in there. Blackwash is also good.

    Happy birthday! :B

    Although the copper on the face doesn't look all that movie accurate...

    Thanks, guys. It was actually a horrible day... =( Ontopic, though!

    Indeed, it's not very movie accurate, but I really liked how the copper/gold finish looked on mangrasshopper's.

    On my deluxe Sideswipe I disliked his blue kneepads. (reminds me of Allspark blue ..ew) I made those all metallicy as well.

    Only good thing that happened today is that I just got back from a 4 hour train trip (Back and forth) to pick up HA Bumblebee! I can't wait to start crackin' on that guy. (I also pre-ordered HA Skids from my supplier)

    Added a daylight picture, shows the detail a lot better. Also added a picture of the only thing I changed on his alt-mode; his license-plate, it's a bit more reminiscent to the Alternators line.

    edit: Oh, look, it's my Ravage, anyone want a thread for that? =P
