    Hello to everyone I figured it was time to stop lurking and make my first post here.
    Here are some photos of custom Seekers I have been working on. Other then the Sunstorm repaint, inspired by his WWI titanium toy deco, they are custom decos. If you look closely you can see some paint chipping that will teach me to use sealer.
    I hope you like them and when I get the time I have one more to post I call him Nemesis Seeker.

    hey man, not a bad star at all, especially on sunstorm. Yellow and white are probably the two hardest colors to paint, but it looks like you did a pretty good job of it.

    Nice. The first one looks like one of the generic seekers from MTMTE!

    I'm still trying to work out on sealer as well, too bad my custom of T-crack is still WIP because his feet paint easily chipped so I'm on the drawing board trying ideas.

    These are pretty good. But the yellow on Sunstorm could use another coat. I don't know if it's your camera but the yellow appears a little on the greenish side.

    Great job, I like your choice of color schemes for the other three seekers. Makes me want to go out and start buying Acid Storms!

    When I started working on the Deco that is what I had in mind but I added teal highlights to make him Reflector-ish.

    First of all, welcome, Radicon! I'm glad you decided to stop lurking and start sharing your work :) 

    With that, you're off to an excellent start! These Rainmakers :) )) look really nice! I think your paint apps look nice and your color palette has some nice choices as well. You've done a really good job of picking your choices wisely, from the Seekers you chose to make to the color decos and how you used them. All around, you've done some excellent work :thumb  I hope we see more from you! :thumb

    green actually. they're all repaints of acid storm :) 
    but i think the color settings in iphoto might have made it look greener then it is.
