So I touched this guy up a little to make him look nice and accurate before this; didn't look bad at all, but putting him on the shelf, there's just so many monochromatic Decepticons in the Bayverse - I said, "fuck it, I'm painting someone. Y'all muthafuckas need visual contrast." Decided to go with Soundwave, as I wanted to do a pre-existing colorscheme so it didn't look out of place and G1 Soundwave's got a sexy, classy colorscheme. Don't post pics very often because I know my pics suck, but I was inspired by @Gladky's own custom to do a little shoot of this guy. I painted his car mode and part of the shoulders a deep, metallic blue lacquer and did the head in a lighter blue because I couldn't find any metallic dark blue in acrylic and I believe lacquer paint isn't good for rubber parts. Hard to see in the pics, but it doesn't look bad in person. Might do the hands in the lighter blue just to make it look like an intentional two-toned blue colorscheme. Painted the space between his eyes red to give the illusion of a full visor, and made his speakers silver with red rims to homage the silver arms with red "wristbands" of G1 Soundwave. Did the frame of the grill in gold to homage the tapedeck door, and also the Mercedes emblems in gold for some bling. Molotow chrome for the headlights, gas caps, and mirrors, then just some gunmetal and silver here and there, with gold, copper, and black for minor details. Laserbeak just got a spray of metallic gray, probably gonna add more to him later on. I gave him a rifle too, (Titans Return Soundwave's, in fact) but he can barely hold it with his stupid rubber hands. Painted just like him though. Wanted to give him SS-22 Dropkick's weapons so they'd look like his G1 battery guns, but he literally can't hold them for shit and there's no good way to mount one on his shoulders, so the rifle is good enough by comparison. Enough talk though, on with the photos! Spoiler: Older pics Thanks for looking, tell me what you think!
