    While you were inspired by the IDW version, the face is still too round for that aggressive look (the red lips also soften the image). That's not to say it's not a great sculpt. I think it's a great alternative for people looking to customize their Animated Arcee or create their own Arcee body to go with this head.

    I think you've done some nice work so far. I'm anxious to see more!

    Send a pm to the op perhaps? If the op decides to make these and offer them, then we have a great spot over in our Creative Marketplace for just such an occasion!

    i think that is a great animated style arcee head (which i dont think is what you were after)

    if you want the IDW look you need to go full on crazy bitch, and sink the face in a little

    but what you have is a great sculpt

    I'm not going to lie and say it looks great. The eyes need more deffinition. They look like little shapes placed over the face, not set-in eyes. The face needs a better shape, as well. It looks very cartoony, moreso than the Animated head. Very round and uneven.

    You're on the right track for sure, but the detail is soft and the face needs reshaping.

    I think the helmet portion is awesome. I agree with Splitlip on the face tho. If you're looking for a Spotlight look, set the face back a bit and slim it down. Do that and you've got a hot commodity on your hands!

    I personally like the current direction better than crazy bitch IDW version,to be honest.
    Though it still needs some work,I do like where this is going,and I'd love to see a finished version of this on PRID Arcee.
