    This is for a long time client who is really into the movie figs and the way I do them(adequately) and asked me to do this when pics first surfaced.. They wanted him to have the heavy damage and weathering, yet clean in truck mode...

    I am trying out some new paint and found some AWESOME metallic paint that is really strong... turned out fantastic on this mold.


    On the damage, I started with aluminum, then grey, then silver, then small streaks of white. This adds to fooling the eye. The blades and shield were "chromed" and then I used a silver to add streaks and damage.

    The hardest parts, paint it the beautiful metallic red then damaging it..but, I gotta say... I like how it turned out..

    thanks for checking it out.

    updated with new pics... IT IS AMAZING HOW GREAT LIGHTING AND A NEW CAMERA CAN MAKE SUCH A DIFFERENCE IN CAPTURING THE FIGURES! MY BRO HAS AN 18 MP GAMERA!!! DDAAAAANNNNGGGGG..... crisp!

    awesome detailing! very impressive ncline!

    you said one of your last commission, do you stop it totally? and only comissions or do you stop customizing transformers itself? this would be really sad :(

    Could you upload more photos? Teasing us like that is just as evil as a girl wearing a bikini in a mall.

    You guys should really see this figure in person, its amazing. I was pleased with how my photos were able to capture the detail and realism encline put into this guy, though I confess to being a bit confused about the CGI comments. Encline said the same thing when he first saw the photos,.

    Thing is, the ultimate goal of CGI is to look like a photo, but to have a photo of an actual figure be compared to cgi... it just throws me off because its kinda backward to the usual.

    Regardless, I've held this guy in my hand, and it is indeed stunning. The paintworks is just, well, its phenomenal. I really want to go back and shoot some more photos of him in action poses.
