    Starscream's Ghost with the legs in Ghostly form...
    This idea came from the scene where Octane was confronted by Starscream's Ghost...And when the KO Ghost Starscream came along, here it is...

    He looks great! Even if it wasn't a ghost transition, the way you painted him is just awesome.

    Sweet idea and very nice execution! I like the cartoony canopy, it's very appropriate for this guy based on the source material

    Nice job man, I like the canopy as well, it looks perfect. I wonder if you could have used a clear starscream for this if they even make one. Great idea!

    Love it! I would've added a very light glitter to him though, as seen in the cartoon

    Thanks for all the feedback guys!!

    @SonOfNemesis: There IS a clear starscream by kotoys....am thinking of getting a couple to try out some remastering of the ghost starscream character....

    @Scarecrow: GOOD IDEA! but i'll have to be careful not to add too much as it will turn him into a party toy...LOL...thanks!

    Love it. The transition from clear to solid looks pretty smooth, and the shadin of the cockpit is a nice touch.
    I would suggest getting rid of the chrome on the launchers, though, as the intense shiny kinda breaks the feel of the rest of the paintjob. It'd be nice to have that tie in more.

    Regarding the sparkle on the ghost parts, I have a suggestion. I have a pearlescent glaze, which basically consists of light-refracting mica particles suspended in a gloss glaze. The brand I have, Inscribe, is out of circulation now (unless you can find an old bottle somewhere, which would probably still be good), but Vallejo do a Metallic Medium, which is basically the same thing; it's designed to be mixed into paint to make a lighter, metallic version of the base colour, but you can instead glaze it over your base and just add a nice sheen to it. If you add a subtle wash or two of that onto your clear parts, it should give you a nice little sparkle, without making it any less clear.

    No problem man. Yeah, you'll have to do a light glittering. I'v never worked with it so no advice there, but if you can get those KO versions you were talking about for cheap, might be a good idea to test.
