    I resculpted Sideswipe's head a little, for a more cartoony look (the original head looks nothing like the TV version), i shaved off his shoulders as well and I used a different transformation pattern for his legs, giving me more space for a more cartoon accurate color scheme.

    I also resculpted Sunstreaker's head for a more cartoon accurate look, and I added the shoulder kibbles (removable) and a bigger gun.

    The rest is just my usual cartoon style using matt enamels and enhanced with panel lining and a nice cell shading on the windshields.

    Looks awesome--But I'm surprised you didn't go for any red on Sunstreakers shoulders to really add to it.

    Once again you've outdone yourself. These look great. Do you airbrush your colors? They look really smooth.

    Love the style, as usual. I transform my twins this way too. :) 

    The little touches are great, like Sideswipe's resculpted head (badly needed) and the launchers on Sunstreaker's shoulders. The way that you avoid having to build front panels on the legs simply by using the black paint to create a natural barrier for the eye is sort of brilliant! LOVE them! :D
