    Very cool colouring! Everything looks perfect! About the only nit pick I have is that the jet burst flames don't seem to really fit in, though it's not a big issue since they're not all that visible.

    I love the little glints of sunlight bouncing off their jet modes!! Nice job :thumb 

    I think my only nitpick would be they should all have deeper shadowing as the sun is shining brightly overhead..especially foot bottoms and bent knee areas..just my :2c:

    As the artist, it's your call of course, if you've already played around with the deeper shadows/colors and it looked "off", then don't change a thing. It's still a great looking piece.

    You can always have the "bright sunlight" bouncing off Starscream's shoulders/body and giving glints of highlights to the other 2!! :thumb 


    quaddy, thanks for agreeing with me, but you messed up my quote :lol  :p
