    Evil Classics Jetfire FINISHED

    First I gotta give some word ups to a few people who helped me with this one:

    Props to my wife for teaching me how to digibash in photoshop CS4
    Props to SQ7 for helping me learn how to mix my paints right (never would have thought of mixing future with the paint itself)
    Props to autobotx23 for dropping some knowledge on sanding (cyb soundwave reference ;)  )
    Props to Sabsabby for also sharing some tips on painting
    Props to Reprolabels for the idea and the faction sticker set to make this a reality
    Props to Redline for welcoming me back to the radicons after a two year hiatus


    Evil Jetfire is finally finished and I'm very happy with how he turned out. He looks very sinister and very deceptive. I think he makes the perfect Decepticon counterpart to the noble Jetfire...

    Pics below are just for show right now and a full gallery is coming this weekend. Please critique because that's the only way I'll get better!

    Thanks for the welcome back. I took a couple of years off to get married and settle in with my wife. I finally have some time to get back in to the hobby and I owe the radicons some galleries. :)

    :lol  you are correct and I told her to bring it home tomorrow so I can take pictures this week. She designs figures for a living (precious moments, maxine, nascar etc) and she has had it at work to show off.

    great paint job. specifically the clean cut look to it. a great purple hue, and white looks great. Are you going to panel line it? because I think it might ruin it instead of enhancing it. just a thought. good work.

    No, I'm not a big fan of panel lining so that won't be happening. My style is more clean lines and surfaces with contrasts of color and small details.

    I look forward to seeing your version him complete. I've done a version of Evil Jetfire with this mold and I know some others on the board have done it as well, he is a great mold that doesn't get enough love.

    Gonna add some WIP pics tonight. The purple is all done, now I got to mask off the different parts for the black highlights. I think this is going to look really good when it's all done. Very evil, but still very Jetfire.

    Jet mode pics coming this evening. I tried to get them up but I was running late to work so I couldn't get them uploaded in time. Looking at it this morning I can say this is my now my favorite custom I've done.
