    My very first digibash. Used a picture of Movie Starscream as the basis.
    Any recommendations are very welcome!

    In regards to the technical skills of digibashing, I think you did a really good job. On a design level, I think the design would work as well. You may want to vary your color tone for your color palette just a little bit for some contrast. Personally, I don't like red and blue together much, but we certainly have notable examples of it working (though if anything, I'd say it looks a bit too close to Thundercracker opposed to a "new" character). I'd also like to recommend using your resources. Google Images is a great place to look up things like aircraft images for references. I do this anytime I set out to make a digibash of an idea. Also, I personally typically see digibashes as a blueprint for a custom, so I'd definitely be interested to see this guy made!

    I hope my comments are helpful! I hope we see more from ya! :thumb

    I didn't think about his looking like Thundercracker.
    When you say to use my resources, like google images, do you mean like study them for color layout? I'm a little confused by what you mean.

    I'd love yo make a custom, unfortunately, custom making is not my talent. I made a custom Ironhide out of a RID X0Brawn years back, but, wasn't happy with it!

    Thanks got the feedback. I have an idea for another digibash, but it may be a while before I get to it.

    The alt mode of a TF is just as important as the robot mode. When I make customs, I'll search through Google Images extensively for "real world" photos of the vehicle I'm going after. Even if you don't stick to an existing paint job, your image search can generate ideas you'd otherwise not have :) 

    Keep up the good work :thumb

    I like that it isn't in a color scheme that is a "seeker" standard, makes the character more unique. :)

    Ok, I gotcha. Thank you for the advice!

    :) 



    Thanks! I had wanted to make him patriotic, but I could not think of a way to work in the white that i was happy with.
