    Universe Skywarp (first posted custom)

    this is my Skywarp, a direct repaint of Universe Starscream.
    this is not my first custom, but it is the first of the good ones.


    I know he's painted basic with not many accents, but that's how I like him.
    I wanted a "toy" look for him as well as my Thundercracker I will post soon.
    just something to accompany my Universe Starscream in package in alt mode.

    you can't really see it too well, but I did paint the backs of the forearms
    black to blend with the rest of the plane, like the Henkei's, I also sharpened
    the missles. I also taped off the symbols and stripes, then masked off the red
    to paint it purple.

    I have done touchups since the pics, so if you see white showing through in
    these pics, it's not there anymore.

    I was going for a semi Henkei look with him.

    I did Thundercracker too, I will post more customs as I get them, my actual
    camera screwed up so I am doing my best with my phone, so bear with me.


    UPDATE:
    I posted a few new updated pics of Skywarp and a few paired with my
    Thundercracker

    Nice paint application, but lacking a bit on the detailing side! Post shading maybe?
    You did a good job, I'm not dissing you or anything. But I'd go for more details, such as shadows over recesses and such!!

    I need to make one of my own to go with my MP!

    I know he don't have a lot of detail, with him and Thundercracker I wanted
    a "toy" look to go with the Henkei's and Universe lines, that I am going
    to display them with in package in alt modes. so I wanted simple with them.


    I have a Sunstreaker, Ironhide, Smokescreen & Bluestreak
    I made a Goldbug, but I have to detail him and do some touchups yet.
    these are much more detailed.

    Not bad. The purple you used reminds me of RM Skywarp.

    Looks clean. It doesn't need detail if it looks good and is clean. I like it. I doesn't even look like a custom.

    thanks, I like seeing what others have done here and I am glad to be a part of it.

    I have to wait until tomorrow to get good pics of TC, considering what I have to
    use for a camera, I need better lighting, I will also be posting my others soon.
    hope you like those as well.
