    So, this is a thread I made to show off my plans for the Transformers: Prime toy line and the figures I'm hoping to get. As many of you know, a lot of them are lacking in terms of paint detail, so I'm hoping I can fix that with my toys by painting them.
    I made these Digi-bashes to give myself an idea of what I want to do, and so I have something to follow when I'm actually doing the painting. So, here goes.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The first one I have ready; Voyager Optimus Prime!

    What have I done?
    - Red on forearms and chest
    - Silver face details, gun, trucker bumper and knee pads
    - Black hands
    - Blue details on face plate

    What I also hope to do?
    - Silver rims on truck wheels
    - Fix gun so it says in its outward position

    Funny, I'll be doing that once I get hold of an Arcee but unfortunatly I seem to have to battle Scalpers that are around here. I've gone to all the stores with PRIME figures that I can get to and every time, the only one missing completly... is Arcee... the most Popular character + Always missing = I smell Scalpers. :mad: 

    As for the digibash the re-color on the mouth plate needs opacity reducing inorder to maintain the texture or grey the area out and then colorize. It may not be easy to do in GIMP due to not having the keyboard shortcuts of Photoshot but all the fetures are still there. Including Curves, which are a VERY handy tool for getting the Shade you want.

    Thanks! :D 

    Thanks for the advice. I see where you're coming from, but as I say it's only to give myself a basic idea of what I'm doing, so I don't mind too much. But I'll be sure to take your advice in the future, or at least after I post this next digi-bash.

    You're in the UK, yeah? I don't think Arcee and Ratchet are being released there until some time next month, same as over here. Don't worry. No scalpers yet. ;)  And hopefully never.

    Since you asked, and since I don't have time to do Megatron as I'd hoped to, here she is!

    I'd just like to say this now, I'm not doing requests. This is a character/toy I would have been working on anyway. I'm really just getting it out of the way at this point.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Deluxe Arcee

    What have I done?
    - Pink on Head, arms and shins
    - Silver bike tail pipes and waist

    What I also hope to do?
    - Silver details on bike wheels
    - Pink details on bike mudflaps

    That's good news then. *phew*
    I see where you're going with arcee but and I'll basically be doing the same but I will add some blue to the hands to, and having just seen a custom of the figure in a deeper blue, I'll likly do that to. We are thinking along the same lines though. :thumb

    Nice work on Optimus! The lighter silver on the lower chest really makes it pop, IMO, and the blue on the faceplate really draws the whole face together and makes it just look awesome.

    What did you use to make the translucent part on Optimus-es arms to be that color red, and still have some translucency?

    I'm away at the moment, but I promise I'll work on Ratchet when I get back! :D 

    Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it :) 

    As for his arms. I just colourised it like I did with the rest of his body, but then I made another layer, filled it with the same colour red and then lowered the opacity. That was as solid as I could get it to look. When I actually get the figure, I'm hoping I can cover up the translucent plastic all together.
