    Hi everyone,

    Inspired and helped heavily by Cheetimus Prime, here's my version of a more show accurate Prime Arcee, adapted from the RiD Deluxe. Please forgive the photo quality, as the only thing I have less experience with than painting transformers is photographing them.

    The last is a low light retake of the third photo. I find it brings out the eyes. And for the stress it was painting those, you will look at them!

    Any comments, especially those on how to take better photos, appreciated. If I had it to do over again, I'd mix my own pink instead of using a stock paint marker. Not only is the look too thick and prone to fingerprinting, but it messes up brushes and just isn't really close to the show color.

    Thanks again to Cheetimus. I would never have spent so much time and money if it weren't for you!

    Thanks for the kind words. She's my first project outside of fingerpainting the front of RiD Megatron.

    Thanks, Z. I didn't have the guts nor know-how to attack the wheel rims like you did. How did you do that, anyway?

    She is indeed a fun one. At first I was mad that she came so deficient in paint apps, but after the great time I had painting her up I'm almost grateful to Hasbro for the push into this hobby. Almost.
