    In my last thread I referenced this guy as my next project. I originally tried this with Cybertron downshift but halfway through realized the bad choice of mold. So I instead decided to use animated Blurr as White Mocha, who inspired me too start postin digibashes with his 'Botcon 2010 ideas' thread had already used the Cybertron Overide/ Galaxy force Nitro Convoy mold.
    So anyway I give you Backstreet.
    No bio this time.

    Hey, I'm flattered that my thread inspired you to start digibashing! :)  I think this looks great! Nice choice of molds, I wouldn't have thought of that, but I think it works really well. Backstreet was always one of those obscure TF's I really liked, so it's always cool seeing him get attention.

    Yes well, When I saw so many digibashes in one thread I thought I ought to jump on the band wagon. I got a freebie Backstreet at AA2010 and instantly he became a favorite that saw as underappricated, even if all his crome had worn off. I'm glad you in particular noticed this thread, when it comes to digibash you are a deity:bowdown:

    Thanks, Supersquad7

    What can I say. I'm full of surprises. Besides I only digibash things I personally would want; then I just like to know what other people think.

    I'd call it "inspired" any chance you'll update with a vehicle mode digi-bash?

    I'm sure the roof will be grey, but I wonder how you'll do the striping and graphics.

    I mean you could even give him red stripes on the hood as it's not a part that's visible in robot mode.

    I did intend to update with a vehichle mode pic but I've been ill and havn't started work on that yet. Since you've requested it though I'll try and have it done by wednsday or thursday as I can only do Photoshop in my free time at school.

    Oh take your time, I was just going though the artwork pages. If you're feeling ill, no need to rush on my account.

    Get well soon.

    Wow, that is indeed one sweet ride. IIRC Backstreet's a bit of a paranoid, jumpy fella. This lanky, wiry mode fits hime very well.

    Thanks. I admit I wasn't sure about this myself but I couldn't figure out how I could improve it either. The aim was to make the pattern feel retro with a modern twist. Just remind me never to attempt racing stripes.I changed the pattern on the car several time before settling the pattern displayed here. Added a new back ground due to problems with shadow in the original background.:eek:
