    Hey guys!
    Today I show you how to make your classics Jazz and classics Rodimus very cartoon accurate with some simple Touchups.
    At first paint al the lines, on white with grey and on darker colours with black.
    Use all of the little Details and use bright colours to make it look drew from comic. There have no plastic grey parts to be!
    and here are they!:

    okay dude, here it comes:
    1. as I said you must paint the lines with grey for white figures or black for others.
    (Use a very tiny brush and if there is paint out of the line you can take it away with your finger or so :wink: )
    2.1 Rodimus:
    these cartoony flames are too faint... use a very tiny brush to border the flames.
    (If you did this very untidy you can use a knife to make them nice and clean)
    2.2 Rodimus:
    the other parts can be made normally

    2.1 Jazz:
    for the radiator grill you can use masking Tape around the radiator grill.
    at first use a dark grey for priming. Then you must make drybrush- but veeery carefully!
    use only a very bit of metallic colour for drybrushing it! If it´s finiseh you can deattach the masking tape.

    2.2 Jazz:
    for every little detail, like the red thing at the arm you must use the surface tension the colour must be glossy then put much colour on an very tiny brush and be very carefully!

    2.2
    Use for every other detail a knife to correct paint mistakes, but be carefull with this!!!

    This is really neato! Any chance you could discuss everything a bit more in a "step-by-step" way? I'd like to make a tutorial out of this, as I think it would be very helpful to others :)

    Thanks for the update! As far as views and posts are concerned, artists must understand first that Customs is one of the busiest places in the Transformers fandom (second only behind News and Rumors). What that means is that a LOT of people are posting a LOT of work for a LOT of people to check out. Only members can post, so those who are lurking can only see what's up. It can be hard to determine how people view and post, etc. I think the main thing is posting and sharing well, no matter if 3 or 300 view/post.

    Thanks for all you contribute! Keep up the good work! :thumb
