    Hey, y'all!
    I was hoping to get a couple of hints from some of my fellow TF fan artists.
    Im currently doing a bit of a mini-comic and I was wondering how do you go about drawing and colouring a Transformer, well, transforming? You know, where you have a panel which has a robot mode, an alt-mode and a couple of steps in-between? Whats the best way to go about drawing & colouring that?
    Any advice you have would be a great help. Thanks!!

    draw and colour em separately then merge for the kill!

    with different opacity for stages of transformation.

    oh sorry yes i see what you are asking.. yes what he said, and also use a massive fat eraser on about 2% to gradually rub out the overlaping portions

    can also use the motion blur/smudge tool to make the transition more, er, effect-y.
