    This is by far the hardest custom to accomplish. I literally spent countless hours experimenting for the colour starburst metallic Turquoise. Crappy elusive colour. Turquoise was achieved by mixing clear blue, green and some yellow. Too concentrated and it looks blue. It was ridiculously hard to balance out the richness and tones. Custom G2 waterslide decals were printed for this piece.

    And to add on to my troubles, the camera somehow had a lot of difficulty in capturing the rich starburst metallic purple. Purple just became blackish somehow. But the custom looks way better in real life. Sorry if the representation is poor. ANyway, in case you're wondering, it's a commission for the whole lot of G2 Stunticons. 1 in vehicle while the other in alternate mode. 1 down. 9 more to go...

    Enjoy the pics. Up next Motormaster in vehicle mode and Snaptrap.

    It looks cool, but it needs another head to be "Motormaster".

    Beautiful paint job Sabrina.
    As for a more Motormater head I suggest classic Inferno.

    Your stuff is awesome as always.

    Amazing paints as usual, but that's a blue Optimus Prime. not only is OP's head so iconic and nearly opposite MM's head, but their transforms are different too. This isn't to say you MUST have cab feet or something, i'm all for new ideas and what not. But Motormaster, in bot mode, was never an OP clone. could that mold benefit from a reverse torso? If you twist him at the waist, then at the head, and swap the fists, would he look ok? Maybe the wind vane could be his chest? That and a new head would do wonders for completing the difference between him and Prime.

    The colors came out realy nice and your detail work is amazing as well. I do agree that a new head would benefit this character a lot. Even if the person who commisioned this asked you to keep the original head id make an extra head as an added bonus. Great job still waiting to see you finish your overlord
