    Update - 01/9/2011 - Hand painted all tattoos and now Jetmode is complete.

    Please forgive my lack of a more appropriate background, had to set up WFC OP this time on it and it was still too late anyway. Also, I had to adjust the contrast setting a bit to get his tattoos to show up so Starscream appears a little darker than he actually is, I hate camera flash but had to use it to get these tats to show up. His bot mode pics as shown are true of his actual colors.

    * Used a better picture set up and better lighting (really just a white daylight bulb) for 'bot' mode and now you can see his true gray tones which are actually lighter then the first 2 pics. *

    Again, a big appreciation goes out to Mechafacture's custom LDR Starscream as I often used his as a guide to paint this one :)

    Thanks bro!

    Thanks, prolly just the lighting. I didn't use my normal set up for these pics.

    Just keep practicing man, you'll definitely get better the more you use your brush :) 

    :D  I hope I can still impress you with the tattoo work!

    Hey SP! Thanks for the comment man! It's a really complex figure to paint too and I don't see myself doing another one for a good long time :)

    thats the fun part, the complexity, yet really no paint rub issues or sanding or filing down stuff..leader class is fun i enjoy them. its a platform to show your true capability..but it is time consuming if thats what you mean. deluxe is my pain in the A.
