    Oh lord, I should never choose a dark plastic to paint a light color ever again.

    To make a long story short, I was inspired by someone’s digital bash of turning Cyberverse Warrior Soundwave into his G2 GoBot colors. And so I tried my best, which had some mixed results. Mostly horrific.

    I admit to being proud of what turned out, but wow. Never again with the yellow on dark blue paint. That took days to get to the state you see it in.

    It’s still good enough for display, though.

    Wow, that is amazing! The yellow did take to the blue awfully well! You have officially made me wish Cyberverse was just a g2 reboot.

    Completely unintentional, I assure you! It’s totally the blue plastic coming through, but I will take the compliment!

    awesome idea. but next time you should definitely use a grey primer first... or do another coat of yellow.

    Hey, I recognize that!

    The inspiration he mentions was from me, which can be found in the art forum here:
    2D Artwork: - G2 Cyberverse

    (Or at least I think so, maybe there's another G2 Cyberverse Soundwave floating around out there I'm unaware of.)

    Looks great! And I know these colors are a pain to try to paint over dark plastic. I attempted a G2 Soundwave custom myself years ago using DotM Roadbuster and getting his green painted fluorescent yellow was a total failure and I ultimately abandoned it.

    Yes! That was your art. So good, and it did inspire me to go with GoBot Soundwave rather than Black Soundwave.

    Still, lessons learned, and he still looks solid.

    I don't know if you did, but I found using a primer coat first helped take the transition to the yellow better. And very light coats.
