    I got bored and decided to try repainting. This is my first attempt. I'm not sure what to call it. I want to say it's Stealth mode bumblebee, but the color scheme could warrant a new name.

    Note: I am a complete amateur and this was done quickly, cheaply, and crudely.

    Criticism is welcome, but keep it constructive.

    Well, i can't say much due to the blurryness of the pics, but then again black and red repaints always look good, and this isn't one to break that mold. Nice job.

    As for a name, may i suggest Rhyperior? Pretend the stingers are robotic Rock Wreckers. :lol  Heck, the car mode (with some horns) could fake a Rhyhorn. Then it would evolve as well! Call it Dark Rhyperior to explain the colour scheme.

    Buzzkill sounds like a good name.
    Figure looks good as far as i can tell, although the pics are slightly blurry.

    Not a big fan of black BB repaints, but this mold seems to work well from it & you've given it a nice smooth paintjob... :thumb

    One thing I've found is taking the pics using a tripod. My camera isnt all that great either, but I figured out how to get some good pics out of it after a lot of trial and error.

    Yeah, the imperfections are really obvious and covered up by the blurryness. I'm going to work on taking/posting better pictures for more accurate feedback.

    Any tips on getting close-up shots? I can never get my camera to focus.

    Nice pics. Unfortunately, the use of a sharpie really shows. :( 

    Got a name yet? Personally i disagree with Buzzkill, but then again i have a fan character under the same name, so... *shrugs*

    Yeah, I still like it though. Regular sharpie doesn't work too well. It was just an experiment. As for the name I think I'm going to stick with Stealth mode Bumblebee. If I had the slightest idea of a simple was to change the autobot insignia to decepticon, I might just call him Doomsday.
