A little bit more work done on the Riptide. I have now painted the bulk of the torso, including the darkened interior, red panels, and comfy seat. It's quite tough to try and get a good shot inside that thing! Also, for some reason the blue is showing up as a lot lighter than it actually is, so I'll have to play with that for the final shots.
Additionally I've completed a Shadowsun in the same color scheme, but with the added bonus of Active cloaking occurring. Shadowsun and the three drones are all in some stage of adapting to their surroundings.
The whole approach to this was inspired directly by Cagn on Le Blog De Kouzes. You can see his great Remora Drone below, and obviously my "transition" line and glow is a direct (if inexperienced) attempt to mimic the effect.
I hope you (and the client) like it!
