the only problem i see with this is that i dont have it
Looks good, but I think the transition gradient is to linear.... If you made it more random it would have looked much more dynamic IMHO. The rest of the work is top notch.
cool, how did you get hold of a clear seeker base. Is it Ghost Starscream
Really nice paint job. I however wished that the color line went through the same on robot mode. I understand the limitation of creating this. Skywarp colors are perfect, is there any paint chipping in the transformation or have you managed to deal with this problem?
If there isnt any paint chipping, I might be interested in getting a MP Seeker of mine done...
The only suggestion I have for this is that there could be a smoother transition between the warp (translucent) part and the regular portion, not that what you have done is bad though, it's great!
Really nice work where did you get the clear fig from?
Ha ha, thanks!
thanks man, I see what you mean about making it more dynamic, you could say that I played it safe for this one since it's my first try at this technique, and truth be told I didn't want to go overoard since there were clear parts involved, but now that I think I got the hang of it I'll try to be more spontaneous and make it more dynamic if I ever try to make a 2.0 of this guy, thanks again!
Thanks! yeah it's a ghost starscream base that I thinned down, believe it or not this is a very forgiving mold, I think I transformed him like five times to do his warp effect with no chipping or scratching whatsoever so no problems here! I agree with you on making the warp effect on his robotic parts, I assume you mean his gray chest areas and did try to do it, the reason why it didn't happen is because the ghost starscream has clear red abs plastic for these parts so it can't be thinned down to clear and it would look awkward unless I paint over it, i do hope igear makes a full clear seeker( why not right?) so I could definitely take advantage of the whole canvas! thanks again!
i'm guessing you mean to make him more dynamic like Z commented, I'll definitely try it for version 2.0 thanks!
Thank you, the figure is actually MP ghost starscream.
Thanks twin turbo!
nice job Storm love how he looks
man this has got to be one of the best renditions of this character, including frenzyrumble's
The line was dictated by the mold. The whole toy is not white translucent.
Nice! damn i want one!!!!
Dude this is sick!! awesome work man!!
loved your mixture of glossy metallic hues and matt colour.
a dynamic transition flow will be better instead of a linear line.
how do you remove the paint from the clear plastic?
had some bad experience with mr color thinner.
In Holland (Dutch) it's called "wasbenzine" but no clue about the USA
what purple paint is that? also the chest? it looks fucking incredible!
I am a Skywarp whore.
