    Hello my friends, and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! :graffiti:

    Every New Years Eve, we try to do something just a Little Bit Extra.. and have a Really Cool Video for all of the RC ADDICTS all around the World!

    This years video has taken MUCH planning, dedication, and a Passion for the RC Hobby! I recently commissioned a well known Airbrush artist / company called "Bloodshot Airbrushing". My friend Ryan owns the company and is the primary artist. WOW.. his work is Stunning, and amazing in person. It looks good on the screen.. but in person.. there is no comparison!

    Over several months we have worked together to get OPTiMUS Overkill looking JUST RiGHT..and he really nailed it. 2014 is the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers!! We want to celebrate this auspicious occasion by Converting Project HD OVERKiLL into OPTiMUS OVERKiLL in Tribute! This is a custom job, and the cost was high.. but I must say, it was worth every penny. Many of you are wondering how much a paint job like this costs, and I will ball park it at just under $500. It is hand painted and covered in automotive clear coat. Ryan estimates this project took approximately 12 hours to paint, start to finish.

    We are fortunate to have an artist like Ryan take the time to include the RCSparks Studio Forum Community members, and he took some photos of the process of him painting this stunning piece of artwork!


    Want some Exclusive Pictures?!

    You got it!

    Enjoy my friends :XD:

    A Special THANK YOU goes out to my friend RYAN, for stepping up the game and coming into the studio to shoot this film!

Here is a Link to his Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/bloodshot.airbrushing His artwork is stunning, and he has several Photo Albums of work available for the public to see! Send him a friend request!

    That looks awesome but I am a true G1 Transformer fan and I think Prime should have stayed a White Frieghtliner cabover. Don't get me wrong still like the new version of Prime...

    Wow, I love that he free handed the True Fire. Not many can do it that way and have it come out that well.
    There are so many cheats that are done with custom artwork, but if you have a good eye, you can look at the details and tell the sellouts from the real talent.

    Ryan has talent. My hat's off to you brother, It you read this. :on fire:
