    Just a repaint. I was inspired by Spurt (even though I could never paint that good for a few more years) and 1984. Even though this really looks nothing like what he does, I was still inspired by him.


    I really wanted to do something different than the shiny Primes I have been doing.
    So, here is my vision of what movie prime would look like as a cartoon with the g1 color scheme and super flat colors.

    I think this is a love your hate kind project.

    UPDATE 7/22/09

    THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR HONSET THOUGHTS. I LISTENED.
    It did need more blue and the feet, but the whole foot would be right.

    I also added the yellow and the arms as well as the ...pelvis area.

    Plus some reflection on the sun-reflector on the chest.

    Plus, with a little combo of movie and cartoon, I added a LED powered blade with a wicked huge cartoon mace!!!!! The gun is from the clear red gundam and the mace is from some pen noise maker I saw at office max. The LED is powered by a 3 volt battery that is housed inside the mace. The switch comes out the back and can hidden where the sword went. Up next is the blaster!!

    I keep looking at it, and I can't decide wether I like it or not. Either way, the metal parts look very cool and unique. What paints did you use for those?

    I like it. The idea works pretty well.

    Maybe the tone of blue is a tiny bit too light imo.

    Oh Encline, you so crazy. You crazy. crazy, crazy Encline. (you crazy.)

    It works surprisingly well, perhaps because it matches the style of the Wii/PS2 version of the ROTF game.

    I LOVE it :) 

    But I'm not a big fan of the movie-aesthetic, so go figure I'd be sucked in by an anti-movie-movie-custom ;)

    Nicely done - like you say, it is a bit bizarre; it shows just why the Movie designs would not work with G1 looks, but at the same time this does work because you've done such a good job on it. The ultra flat colours show a lot of restraint, and the stylised windows are a great touch.
