    Smokescreen was one of my favorite characters from TFP but unfortunately his toys were crap and I was 100% sure that he wasn’t going to be in legacy, so I made my own. I took a lot of inspiration from the toy than the animation model. Because the design on animation model’s door wings was so complex that I would’ve had a heart attack trying to replicate it. Doing the blue on the chest made me want to yeet myself off a building. E31F94F4-CBD5-491A-9477-94C37BF72420.jpeg 7F46C7AA-7B37-4FA7-8CF1-9783FEF6FFCB.jpeg
    Here he is with my custom TFP starscream C5327022-6DBD-4636-ABFC-1EBD6AEF45C0.jpeg A58E3AF8-BDCF-4D55-A9F8-44F6B65764AF.jpeg

    Color blocking is really nicely done. You maaaaaay want to go back over the tires in black, though.

    How did I miss this? I was planning on making one myself someday, so to see this is so gratifying. Excellent work! You definitely helped inspire me to make my own

    This an amazing idea but some applications could use some reworking

    Paint is a bit rough but it definitely looks great as a concept of the character

    I see that this ended up similar to the Digibash you requested, besides, I did the Digibash, it may have some similarities, but you did miss a few spots.

    not a bad start, i feel like the Hasbro pulse version of (Cybertronian) TF: Siege Smokescreen would be a better base figure.

    i love to see a remake of TFP Smokecreen, the original was ok but his robot mode was flat whereas he was very rounded in his shapes like his alt mode.
    maybe even a version of him in the hasbro RED toyline?

    This is looking great, but I'd recommend revisiting your paint applications. Check out our Tutorials section for assistance with this :)

    I don't want to be a bummer but this person has deleted his account. Though I think the advice can apply to a lot of aspiring radicons on the boards.
