    Ok, this is an update to this project... After looking at this custom again I wasnt happy with him... I went and completly stripped him down and repainted him... The first couple of pics shows how he used to look, all new pics follows... Also, a big thanks to ThielMJ for the SG decal...


    This is a quick repaint of RTS Jazz into SG Ricochet... I did this custom to help with ThielMJ charity auction he will be having... Since I was impatient to do him, I now have a few touch ups I have to do on him... Please feel free to give any C&C...

    Maybe a little remolding in the face, to makehim more sinister,
    otherwise, great job!

    that is sweet. it's just too bad whenever i think of sg ricochet, i think of that one prose story's cover where he's all crazy faced, so him looking like a badass instead of a psycho screws with me

    Not sure how I feel about the feet & things above them being red (they were grey before), and the same goes for the chest. Like, I get that you don't wanna follow the Jazz colour scheme, but the more I look at my figure, the more I see those areas like something to work a little differently, and the same goes with the detail on his black parts.

    Along with that, anything you come across in regards to how to touch up the rims evenly will be helpful, especially in regards to painting the thin line that borders the tire without splashing over will be helpful. I've been thinking about finding/making some sort of stencil , but it look like I'm just gonna have to be surgically careful & hope for the best.

    Thanks for the compliments...

    I have a couple of extra heads, I might see what I can do... I was thinking of maybe re-working the mouth...

    Thanks for the compliment, means a lot coming from you...

    Thanks for bringing the rims to my attention, didnt really notice how they came out... Guess I will touch them up with silver and make sure I hit the lip of the rim also...As for the other parts you mentioned, I was the same way also but they grew on me and I like the way they came out...

    I was thinking the same thing, guess I will make a stencil and paint one on...

    Thanks again to everyone who has commented on this piece... I want to make sure I can get it looking nice, since it will be going to help a fellow board member with his charity auction...

    I like the heads one is calm and the other kinda demented, but heck it works. So great job on this custom.
