So this is what I did while waiting for my wife, Jen, to have our new baby. I got some weird looks and a couple of questions from curious nurses as I sat there painting. Of course when it got close to kid splurtin time, I bagged the fig and transformed to husbandly support mode. I got to finish it up though while being there all day and night after Talia was born. Initially I went by the concept art (attached pic) for the basic look, just coating most of him in flat black then drybrushing chrome over that. When I got home (a couple of hours ago- gotta get my other kid from school!) I used paused screens from Mixmasters brief fight with Jetfire in ROTF as reference to add in all of the color details.
