    Just up load couple pictures of these two Demolishors

    I repainted them for two colors, the construct yellow and the movie color.

    Regarding the rust,

    1, I used a very soft foam ,wet it with tiny color (Silver),lightly spotted on the figure.

    2, still the soft foam, wet it with own mix color (orange, yellow,brown),let them dry a bit and spotted on the figure quickly.

    3,dust it with pastel which is also mix color.

    The color construct yellow is the most important part, becuase this color is not only yellow, but it to be mix with other 3-4 colors.


    Thanks for your watching and hope you will like them.

    Great effects. If I were to nitpick (which means I'm about to ;)  ), I'd say the scale and density of the "rust" doesn't fit with the intended scale of the vehicle. Some of the rust spots and pattern spread don't seem fine enough, and the treads/wheels & weathered edges look more dilapidated than I imagine you intended. Less would have been more, given the size Demolisher is meant to be.

    However, the effect itself is great, the application method is careful and simple, and the overall finish is excellent, so there's lots of potential here. I just feel the relationship between the vehicle scale and the effect scale is "off", on this occasion.

    Never even thought to paint this guy in the colors that most people see. Looks phenominal. Saw one the other day that looked almost the same, except like Rijie78 mentioned, not quite as much rust, but I think it works on a Transformer.

    Love your rust effect on this. Gives the Transformers a more real world feel...which I think is great direction to go. Excellent effect with the yellow.

    Woo.
    Good point.
    You see through me. :) 
    Actually ,from the repainted was done, I was consider if I should add the rust weathering on them.Coz I want to be as clean as new ones for them.
    When I place those two guys there for couple days and watching them ,and think there could be a bit dirt on them coz.... hey!!! they are construct machines. By the some time , I just got a bad news that I miss the other 3 constructs to form up a team for them.Bit upset!!! So..... there they go.


    Not have a heavy rust , coz I want to collect them all (five of them),ocne they all merge the rust of each one will not match on the robot body.
    I still waitting for the chance to have other three. There is an other construct (long haul) was done. Will upload soon...


    Thanks for your great suggestion and expect of seeing your works's pictures.

    P.S. hope my poor English can say all I want to say. :)
