    Here we have a basic repaint of Classics 2.0 Starscream into Skywarp. This is actually the second time I painted him. I didn't really care for the first result so I did it again.

    I painted the main body in Krylon Gloss Blck and then used a Pearlescent Purple paint marker on all his purple parts. Model Masters Titanium with my new airbrush for his missles. And of course, the Decepticon symbols re from Repro Lables.com

    C&C welcome as always. I personally think he could have turned out better.

    really, I think you did an awesome job.
    It might be the light, but the only small thing I'd have to say is skywarp usually seems to bea bit more glossy....but like I said, the light and monitor differences could make my comment nothing at all.......

    still, you did an amazing job lad, amazing, even got rid of a nasty burr.......
    wait, that's someplace else.....

    I love the last bit of your post. Actually It didn't come out as glossy as I would have liked. I think it might be the clearcoat I used on him. But thank you for the compliments. :)

    It looks like you should make yourself a light rig for your photos. Maybe 2 point lighting on opposite sides of the figure pointing down to create some ambient light. All your photos are blown out which obscure the details. I can't really tell if you are using lighting or your flash, but definitely stay away from using the flash and instead increase the exposure time with adequate lighting.
