    UPDATE: My schedule was a lot busier today than I wanted it to be so I haven't finished Runamuck yet, but here's a couple more 99% complete shots of him with a head and with Runabout...

    [​IMG]

    So here he is in a work-in-progress state...

    I can still add some other paint apps so any suggestions???

    A fellow TFW member suggested I give him orange glow to reference his G1 orange colors, much like I did for Runabout with the red glow...I like it myself but would you guys rather see orange thighs, neck, and inside rear back?

    Okay, so I went ahead and painted his neck base and thigh orange to give him that much more of a Runamuck resemblance. Thoughts??

    I reckon a head might be a good idea ;) 

    Apart from that, I reckon he's perfect.

    i think painting the extra orange parts was a good move. We're seeing a lot of customs on this mold of white characters, so any variation you can make to set him apart is a plus. I think both Runabout and Runamuck could use a decepticon insignia too. The warm hues of their glow effects keeps tricking my brain into looking at them as autobots

    I would also like to know what head you plan to use.

    Definitely better without the orange thighs & neck, otherwise, looking good as usual.

    Not a fan of the orange thighs and neck. Less is more imo.

    Wow, these are cool. I kind of like Runamuck (the white one) more because the details pop more when it's white as opposed to black, and I kind of like the orange areas and glows. I wish Runabout had more colors to him, or maybe more shades of black/gray.

    Thanks for commenting guys :) 

    Yeah I really debated about that and just went with it. I mean Rumamuck has orange in his various versions and it just didn't scream him to me without either the orange OR without standing next to Runabout.

    Thanks a ton guys, these two were pretty painstaking with the glow apps and all but I really enjoy them. I went and modded Runamuck's head a little and made his 'fat' jaw more narrow and sleek like Runabout's. I'll post up new pics as soon as I can, been so busy at work to this point :(

    They both look amazing. If you're still taking suggestions, I'd add some gold stripes to the vehicle mode.
