    Here is my repaint of Cyclonus. Gave him a black base coat, drybrushed silver and purple. Lots of purple. A simple repaint but I think it came out pretty cool.

    Looks pretty nice, but I think the jet mode needs a little something.

    It's cool, the alt mode could probably do with some red and silver accents mind to break up all the purple

    That purple is nice. What type of purple is that?
    And I agree with the jet mode needing, the red windows, and a few other details just to break up the color a touch.

    Awesome painting, great choice! I agree the jet mode needs some little details filled in because it looks a little plain.

    Probably the guns, and maybe the engines should be highlighted somehow, maybe that little detailing under the cockpit along the side (the zig-zag line) and maybe some wing accents... That would really make it pop!

    You may think it's simple but it makes me want to skip on the henkei version. He looks really good!

    Nice work. Is the purple from a can/bottle or did you mix it?

    I kinda agree that the jet mode needs highlights to help break up the purple, but I like it the way you did it because he looks menacing. Good job.

    Thanks for all the comments. I like purple. That's why I kept it simple. I wanted to add the red on the wings but I just felt like I had to keep it purple. The paint was Testors Grape Pearl. The parts that don't show are silver so when you transform him it looks like his insides are metalic. Now I have to go have some grape juice for some reason.

    I lost the red windows! That pissed me off. I finished painting him and tried to attach the windows again. The paint made it difficult to put back on. And then I lost them. :( 

    If I find the windows, I'll put them back on.

    Man, that great! I wish I could dry brush like that. It would have made my Cyclonus a lot better I think. Concidering I only paint, but not often, I always find works like yours and sabsabys incredible. Though, there deffiantely needs to be something in there that breaks all the vehicle mode up. Other than that, though, awsome job! :thumb

    And some Raspberry Red. Hahaha But just like every has said before just some Silver highlights and some red detailing and maybe a reprolabel Faction(not necessary) and this would be a Henkei killer. Sweet Job Solrac:thumb 

    Damn you lol.

    Looks great! I like that it combines elements from the toon and the toy versions.
