    Hi there! Glad to see ya.

    Just wrapped on this, and it took alot longer than I thought. I basically had to MAKE myself stop! This is basically a repaint of Animated Voyager class Grimlock. I used various shades of Dupli Color Enamels, including Intense Blue Pearl and Medium Garnet Red. The gold was painted using a base coat of silver, then hand painted with Tamiya clear yellow. The sword was given a coat of gunmetal for the rock parts, then dry brushed with sliver. Finally he was given 2 coats of Pledge Future to maintain the super glossy, almost wet look.

    He looks delicate, but he's surprisingly tough. That pledge future really turns into armor for paint once cured!

    Any comments, love, hate or critiques are encouraged, thanks for your time!

    Thanks everyone, I always appreciate it.

    Let me just say for the record, that masking off areas on this figure was a PAIN. All those curvy lines for the animated style is tedious to mask. Usually with a TF, its just a matter of taking the edge of your tape and matching to the straight lines, but with the animated style I found myself going back and having to trace out those $%#$ curvy lines with an exacto to get the masking right.

    T'was like punishment, I tell you...:redface2:

    This is one that's so obvious, but it's nice to see finally done. Your execution is golden as well :thumb
