    So this began as just a graphics commision and ended up escelating. Not a huge painter so i'm undecided how i feel about him as a whole and the flash did show me some touch up spots. Just a basic repaint and added a waist joint.

    First off some pics of how he arrived to me.

    And the mostly finished product.

    There are some spots that could use some touching up, but the mold does look great in those colors.

    For a moment there, when I saw those first few pics of the Rodimus that was sent to you, I thought that was your custom. Then I saw the real thing, and it looks pretty damn good. I see a few places that need to touching up, and some finish maybe, but I love the colors.

    Yeah it needs some touch ups and a dull coat per comisioners request, but glad to have it done with and the part that actually really mattered to me was the graphics cause that's big commission offerings not painting. I can mod and decal but not really paint.

    Well, yes, I did use markers, and yes I know it sucked. It was just a placeholder BIS Roddy til I got either the Classics or Henkei version(I colored it like that cuz I hated the colors it was, and didnt have any paints at the time) Which is percisely why I sent it to get painted...
