    That animation is cool. Someday we'll get good TransFormers on the big screen.

    The more observant may have spotted that I dirtied up my Ectotron so that he would look more realistic in that gif. A lot of that work isn't seen closely, so here are some pics of the detailing I added:

    Ecto5.jpg
    Ecto3.jpg
    Ecto6.jpg
    Ecto9.jpg
    Ecto10.jpg

    Obviously the main thing was panel lining over all the sculpted indentations. There's also a dark wash to give depth to recessed areas, some silver dry brushing to bring out the details (particularly on the black parts like the proton pack), added colours based on reference material (such as wiring and buttons/dials on the equipment and the silver tower and bronze tank on the roof section). Plus silver door handles and darker window tint, and finally a bit of dry brush dirt effect around the car bodywork.

    I already loved the alt mode, but with that extra level of detail it really does look impressive. All it really needs to finish it off is a No-Ghost logo and licence plate on the rear door/bumper.

    Maybe not. Possibly more War Ponies though.
