Movie Leader Optimus Done Hi guys, Here's my first custom (actually first TF purchased in 20+ years, first large scale model I've painted, first use of a spray can to paint...) and I took some colour test shots today and figured to show you guys. I've gone with a darker colour that's also metallic (tamiya metallic blue and red), used a rougher metal (gun metal over black, with chrome silver / titanium silver highlights). Let me tell you, doing detailed spraying with spray cans is.... painful, but I don't have good ventilation at home so can't set up a airbrush area. Anyways, just a quick one so let me know what you think. -- Edit -- Ok... finally done this thing, only took me good part of 6 months or so. I opt'ed to paint only small amounts of details because a) I seriously cannot see that well with my eyes anymore b) I like simplicity, so prefer less "noise" on my figures c) I'm lazy :-D You'd notice that the colours are more the metallic red / blues because I really like the deep blue / red of these tamiya paints, and the silvers are silverleaf (no airbrush problem again, and sprayed on chrome I've tested didn't work out that well or not sturdy). I've taken most photos using ambient sunlight + a soft flash (don't have a light box, sorry) so colours might not be the sharpest. Cookies to those who can tell what weapon he's holding!
