    I was doing a Unicron as a commission.
    Enjoyed it so much I decided to paint my own figure.
    I went for a slightly dark orange, bronze metallic version.
    The project took a while, but it really was good fun!
    Airbrushed, then lots of hand painted detail to bring the features out.

    And here was the commission Unicron. Less metallic and a lighter colour -

    Awesome work as usual! Orange is one of my least favorite colors to work with, but you made this look terrific.

    Brilliant work bro!
    Always love your work mate, as you never cease to inspire me to do better!
    Love the dark machine gray on the ring, the hint of metallic purple on him, and just all the superb subtlety of transitions within the colours that has become your trademark.

    I really do like the time and effort that goes into the blending and transition of colours and tones in your paintwork. This is excellent.

    Really like how you used the older mold for this repaint. Makes it that much better as a bronzed piece, if that makes any sense :)

    Yeah, I wanted a metallic, shiny look. Thanks :) 


    That means a lot.
    Thanks mate.

    Cheers.

    I wanted to bring out the detail, and a slightly darker richer colour over the first one I did.
    I know what you mean, and thank you :)
