Paint Scheme?

I'm looking into a paint scheme for my project Dewy. His picture is below.

He isn't finished yet but I wanted to start to get an idea.
Here's his new head. it needs to be painted too. The display part(clear) will be tinted and will have leds behind it.

I like black and silver. But a red and white bot might be cool.

Ok maybe like the shoulders silver,
the rad body black, the head a combo of black with silver racing stripes,
the arms black with a silver decal(arms not yet implemented),
the body extension(box) black with a silver fan decal and the ez-robot logo,
and the rad base fenders with racing stripes and the rest black.

Picture it and tell me what you think.

dark grey is my favorit.

Love the head.... Love the idea of using regular household items or consumer goods as robot parts....

Bought the head last August. It was an alarm clock. Ripped the insides out and left it 'till now. When I finish the main gist of Dewy I'll post my paint scheme rough sketch.

what about silver&gold ?:D

Here's the gist of my paint scheme idea. I used different colours of black to help divide sides. keep in mind that the white parts will be painted black too.

but thats just my opinion.

I can see your point. true DIY people like showing off what they build in a way that looks DIY. I want to try to make a clean designed robot.

sorry what means diy?
something simpel but goodlooking.

Yah, don't feel bad. I didn't know what that meant either. We're in the age of texting and that lazy from of shorthand is bleeding over into other forms of communication. I hate it but that's just me. I'm guilty of using it too.

Thanks i feel better now. *cool*

Cupcake: Great drawing! How about the black line silver and the white stuff black?

Dave: I agree.

nomad: Don't worry. I wasn't sure what it meant for a while when I started.

#22

dark vs light 3 to 1
how long will the poll last
#30  
I think it's pretty well done! the odds are in favour of #1 and I too like 1 so I think we'll use it! Thanks a lot Cupcake!


Reason for #1: I found it follows the original paint scheme of the rad, which was nice.

Cupcake, I may modify the design a bit if I find it difficult to do. Also, I thought about adding something to the base fenders.

One last thing. Any ideas for what to put in the chest hole are welcome.

Maybe mount it on clear plexi glass and have a light coming from inside the body shining out.
