    Hey guys! New here, wasn't sure where this thread belonged so threw it here to get some views and maybe some replies. My 7yr old son, who after being introduced to G1 tformers via Hub network, wants a G1 paint scheme on his ice hockey goalie mask! The season starts in the fall, but he's very anxious and wants it done yesterday! Anyway, I'm very good with an airbrush and I've done 2 of his masks already and a few for his friends, but I was looking for some input on designs. With all the tformer fans on this board, I thought we could come up with some great ideas to make this an awesome mask and a tribute to the brand. Anyone with some computer graphic skills, post your designs pics. His only request is a logo on the forehead area. The rest is a clean slate. Lets see some ideas!

    Welcome to the boards! I'm moving this over to our Radicons Creative Discussion forums, I'm sure we've got some painting gurus that can point you in the right direction ^_^

    you should give some details of his favorite character(s) or whether he likes the autobots or decepticons etc. will make it easier to come up with designs. Nice idea, cant wait to see it realised.

    His favorite characters are Optimus, Jazz, Megatron and Starscream. I was thinking a logo made of half autobot half decepticon, but it's hard to visualize.

    try google and search deceptibot, other searchers may bring better results

    Joe, WOW. Just showed my son and he freaked out! This is what I was hoping for. I can airbrush anything if I have it in front of me, so this is what I need. You are extremely talented. Without seeming too pushy, can you fit Optimus on one side and Megs on the other?

    Are you looking for close-ups of their faces, or something else?

    Expanded the art area out a bit. Should make it easier to do the wrap-around for the helmet.
