    It's been a while since I've had any updates or new work on here, but I promise, I am hard at work with lots of fun, great commissions (which I am always accepting)

    Anyway, here's a commission for a TFW2005 board member. I believe it's a gift for his brother.

    My photo shoot tonight was shit, didn't have time or energy to set up the light tent, and for some reason the photos ended up a tad too red. The main orange color is a bit more yellowish in actuality.

    Please feel free to comment!
    :p

    Very nice work as usual F.R. You have some of the cleanest paint apps. Do you use mainly brush on, or airbrush? Just curious about your techniqes. Thanks in advance.-Wm

    I like the weathering on the head. Very nice. He just needs some Decepticon symbols to finish him off :)

    thanks guys! to answer WM's question - I typically use a brush. My airbrush compressor took a shit, so It's basically all brush now. Primer is usually fusion and finishing coat is testors matte (krylon's sucks compared)

    It looks like Sunstorm could wipe the floor with Starscream in a brawl. Looks good though.
