Problem is if you bought one now you'd have to custom anno, and if you wanted non black grips you'd need to get them custom fabricated somehow which could be done but... you'd better be rich

The pimped and stormtrooper white one near the top are the only ones that wouldn't require custom grips.

Anyways Jack if you're out there, I hope this convinces you guys to release some custom grip colours. Even just white and brown/tan options would be epic

these looks pretty sweet. I wonder how long until PE/another company comes out with colored grips.
I know you said nothing custom and this isn't the photoshop thread. However, how about a Red/White/Blue marker? Could potentially look nice. Or a marker with the brown grips and an Olive Drab/black body, sort of a WWII military style.

mm that works. High five. I like.

Will do a red/white/blue one, cos everyone from the 20+ countries who claim those as their national colours need to be able to rep on field somehow :p

That is sick as hell. Black/Brass/Leather(brown) would be sweet too. Ironman or a Superhero type would be slick too.
An B-29 style (like the geo's) would look cool too. To a dark blue top and a lighter bottom, like a normal fighter jet.

- used the vamped as a base here but I really don't like how PE colour the LPR cover and part of the ASA separately, along with the barrel back, backcap and feedneck. It seems like colours for the sake of colours without any thought to how it affects the lines and focal points of the design. Almost certainly done by someone different to the actual gun designers who clearly know their stuff. Ends up looking messy and not at all clean. Might redo this properly :p



Might as well throw one in for my own country while I'm at it


Yeah I like to theme them - brown grips with brass and black = steampunk so that's cool. Clarke is technically the superhero one (nearly called it Undiesontheoutside). The traction one is a tank, might also do a grey german style one. A bomber makes sense. The X4 was going for an experimental fighter jet look while I still need to bust out a stealth bomber.

late addition:



I always liked how white and camo look together. I know it completely defeats the purpose of camo, but I like it so nyaah.

Easily the best anno designs I have ever seen. I would pay an arm and a leg for the penncot color..... At first I never even liked this market but your designs bring out the true potential of the marker very well designed

I'm pretty much done actually. I may do more later if I feel like it but they won't be requests.

Just wanted to give a quick example of what I mean when I say the colour detail positions are poorly chosen by PE. First, as it is:



And second, as it should be (or at least one example of a better way to do it):



Much cleaner.

I dunno, does that make sense to you guys? I just feel that the combos they have are obscuring the milling lines of the marker as well as drawing the eyes to contrast points that don't go anywhere - like on the ASA or the edges of the LPR etc. . As an added bonus, the barrel back and LPR divisions get your eye stuck fast right above the foregrip, exaggerating any perceived ugliness. Instead of flowing from the barrel tip along the marker and then down the grip, your eye just goes *zonk* straight to that point. No workies.

OK I'm sounding like an art teacher. Excuse me, lol
