    I had these in a cabinet not doing anything but being ignored, so I borrowed a friend's good camera and decided to take a few shots.
    I know they aren't Transformers, but I'm trying to inspire myself into getting back into these painting techniques and using them on TF's.
    Seeing Spurt's Games Workshop style recently made me want to jump back in, possibly with some Cyberverse figures given the treatment.

    I used Vallejo and Reaper Pro Series, with some GW paints and washes thrown in.
    Instead of the traditional layering, I prefer blending and wash shading for a more natural and seamless transition.

    Well, hope you all like them.

    Thanks for the comments, guys!

    I used to put days into one particular area just to get the shading right. One of my most extensive pieces took over 170 hours from start to finish. I'm trying to get back into that mindset, which is why I'm posting these.

    The amazing thing is the size of these figures. They are so small and with that kind of detailing it looks nearly impossible! Awesome work.
