    To go with my recently repainted Sideways, I just finished Sideswipe!
    I tried my best to make him match both the real car and the CGI renders of the robot mode, without making him look too weathered and scratched in car mode.. some kind of a balance =)

    I used several hues of metallic paint to weather both modes and added some scratches and stains for a more realistic look.

    And here he is...

    Thanks!
    I decided to left the hood cleaner because that's the part of the body of the car that is less exposed when driving, that's why I applied most of the weathering around the wheels (dust, mud and some grass stains I added), and I didn't want him too look extra dirty in car mode ;) 

    Thanks =)

    Thanks!


    PS. I didn't know you could't upload pics like this... my bad x_x

    I think it looks nice. I figured the weathered look was more for the bot mode than the car mode, like battle damage.

    And please attach ALL project-related images ;)

    The weathered paint marks make the car mode look realistic.
