    So, I made a resolution last year to paint more Decepticons. And well, I failed miserably. Better late then never, man! Here's your G2 deco'd Skyquake. My goal was to keep him from being too busy, which is hard to do with this guy. I mean, he's made up of 4 colors that normally shouldn't go together. But, a commissioner is always right, so I went for a copper/gold mix and a custom teal/turquoise and magenta colors, with liberal washes of green, blue, black and bronze as well as dry brushing and shading on the wings and torso.

    The head is a custom cast of a modded Armada Skyquake head (first thing I ever cast! Woo-Hoo!). The hands are casts from a 1/100 Gundam Virtue. I removed some of the kibble from the wings and the font cannons. The Gatling gun is a mix mash of parts and pieces, as is the spliced together chain ammo belt from ROTC GI Joe figures.

    More pics are HERE. Enjoy!

    this is so awesome!

    and i know this sword ^^

    the colours do not match together mostly, yes but this time? Mindblowing! i love it!

    the only thing i'm wondered about is that some paint (magenta) seems to be a bit thick, you can see the brushstrokes, never saw that on each other custom made by you, but it's not a big issue, just a notice in the corner :)

    Yet again another masterpiece!
    I was planing on using the Generations/universe Silverbolt/skyjack/dreadwing mold for machine wars starscream and skyquake customs, but yours works so well, I may have to re-evaluate that idea!
    Damn!

    Yeah, that was kinda poopie. (Can you tell I have kids :LOL) My workshop had some cooling issues foot a while. Summertime in AZ, well, doesnt always treat paint well. Thanks for the love, man.

    :thumb 

    :lol  Now that is cool to hear!

    It's cool how a hands replacement can add expression to a figure, huh? Gracias, man.

    G2, Baby!

    Ooohh...that sounds equally promising. Looking forward to it.

    I like this one very much. To me, its like the seekers are this one class of jets, and Skyquake belongs to the next class up, a beefier class. Great work.

    That is totally wicked! Some'll love and some'll hate "colors that don't go together." But I believe is what makes some of those guys so appealing.
