    so i started my next piece, ultra magnus. it will be a blend of toon, toy, and bits and pieces from various other pictures i've kept over the years. basically my version of a masterpiece design. here's the rough sketch i did this morning. i'll clean it up, add details, ink, color, and re-ink were needed.

    sorry about the lite pic.

    There are some issues with the head, such as proportions and how it's sitting on his shoulders and such. However the pose and the rest of the preliminary construction looks really good. As a Magnus fan, I'm really excited to see this one :D

    I agree with the head, but I'm so excited to see how this will turn out!

    I think the problem with the head is it appears to be sitting a little off to the right. Like his head is rotated off-centre on the neck. Nudge the head over to the left a little and I reckon it would look correct.
    Apart from that, nice work.

    thanks. :D 

    plan for the day: fix right ear pipe, move smoke stack and add other, finish both thighs, and start left arm.

    opinion time. i like how he wears the trailer, as you can see, but i don't really like how white magnus's legs are also his legs in combined mode. i also don't like how the cab would be if i went titanium transformation with him. so, what do you think about the cab connecting to the trailer like powermaster optimus prime and having his legs fold up behind him?

    also, i don't like how the bottom of his "feet" don't look flat on the "ground". what do you think about adding a tilt to the bottom like fans project city commander? what about including a liscense plate? just a thought.

    Right now, part of the problem with the head is the helmet. The left side is shorter and smaller as compared to the right. Also, I think Gingerchris is on to something discussing how the head sits on the shoulders. For any figure, how a head fits on and with the shoulders is a big deal (for human figures especially, as that's actually one of the key ways we are able to mentally recognize and recall the identity of a person/psych lesson for the day).

    I've tried to show in the attached image the problem areas that I see in the head's proportions. Hopefully, you'll be able to see with the straight lines where the lines should be symmetrically lining up and what you have on paper now:
