    Yes, celebrate! It's another one of those projects Treadshot never gets around to finishing! W00t! :lolol 

    For those who don't know me, i happen to be someone who loses interest in something very quickly, so i have a lot of half-done projects from days gone by that are screwed up in some way, which i never finished. Some of which are still salvageable (hence the title).


    Yeah, you've all seen the WIP. And then you all said it looked like Metalhawk. There's just one slight problem...

    ...I hate Metalhawk's colour scheme. Too much gold, doesn't fit with the Animated aesthetic. So i took a bit of artistic license with this one. I tried to draw inspiration from the original Metalhawk, while at the same time making my own version of the character. My main idea behind this custom was that of a children's superhero, the bold, vibrant colours seemed to suit the style and mold, and Metalhawk always struck me as a hero-ish character. As an Animated figure, he no longer sports gold except on his head, the rest replaced with yellow. I used Enchanted Blue on the rest of him, and a bit of Blood Red where necessary. All panel lining was done with Ultramarines or Enchanted Blue, though i tried to keep lining to a minimum to keep with the style.

    Yeah, i fully expect a mob of die hard Metalhawk fans at my doorstep. It's not a jet. It's a twin cannon spacecraft. Sue me. :p
