    Hey guys! So recently, I've been on just a bit of a sketching kick. I have yet another product of it here!

    I was able to update a project that had long since been finished, and thought I'd illustrate it as well.

    I've recently worked out all of my mechanical kinks of binary bonding Nightstick (from Universe Cyclonus) with Alternators Ricochet. I have two purposes for illustrating things the way I've done:

    1. I don't want to give anything about my project away yet; and
    2. I want to make multiple use of my illustrations.

    Alternators Ricochet is a repaint of the Alternators Silverstreak (which I enjoy, despite the criticism), and as such the way I've done things, I can essentially have an Alternators Silverstreak illustration as well. I may can work it around to get a bit more bang out of the piece as well, but I don't want to bog this down with a lack of personality (which this process could ride the danger of).

    Also, I wanted to have a separate illustration of Nightstick as well. I drew them separately, then merged the illustrations in Adobe Photoshop. So far, all I've done is adjust the contrast settings to make the sketch darker line art.

    Anyways, here they are! Enjoy! :)

    Looking really good. The details for the car mode look very accurate. And you gave Nightstick a very cool pose. Hope to see a colored version. :thumb

    Thanks man! I actually like to have a model sitting in front of me when I draw. In this case, I had both Ricochet and Nightstick in front of me for reference. I'll be coloring it, but I'm unsure as to when. Any of you guys are welcomed to do so :wink:

    I like this so far, I'm a pretty big fan of drawing from the toys as well, so I may be a little biased :)

    I am as well. If you read my interview from November in the "Featured Radicons" section, you'll find that one of the purposes of my customs is for this :)  Thanks for the props; I really appreciate it :) 

    Heheh, well I have to admit that I did think of that version when I drew this, hence the reason for making Nightstick a separate illustration :)

    Thanks for the props, guys! I really appreciate it :) 

    I do want to color it (or see it colored) eventually. I'll keep you guys posted. As for now, it'll stay as is (aside from me eventually uploading a smaller version).

    Ain't nothing wrong with that; there's no better reference in my opinion. :) 

    Beautifully done, that man! I love the clean lines, and you've faithfully recreated the toys while giving them a little life too. Nightstick even has knees! :lol 

    Looking forward to seeing more of these. Are you going to colour them yourself..?

    Thanks for the props, bud :thumb  I'm glad you enjoy these :) 

    I'd like to color them at some point, but I certainly wouldn't mind if someone else wanted to take their hand at these. :) 

    Thanks! :)

    Nice tidy lines and good detail work. I'm always blown away by other people's sketches around here. They look cleaner than my finished work.
