    This is probably the longest near-consecutive period of time I've spent working on one piece (two months). I'd say it's been in the oven long enough.

    I really love how dynamic the Arcee triplets were. It's too bad we didn't get to see more of them.

    Comments and critiques are appreciated.

    Thanks for looking.

    Looks great! I do apologize though, I hate being Buzz Killington, but it does appear as if you have the arms/hands opposite as they should be on Elita-1/Flareup.

    Nice ! You can try to do the background with another color. Try the chromatic circle ! :D  Maybe a beige or orange color ?

    Also I have a probleme with the black line. :D  Blurr it a little maybe.

    That is some amazing work dude! I can see how it took you so long. Though, if you want a critique, I feel Chromia's pose isn't "dynamic" compared to her sisters. Otherwise, awesome. :thumb

    It's really nice but i think you should adjust the color in photoshop a bit, play with the curves, it's a bit dark. The shoulder wheel on the blue bike looks like it's floating next to its head.

    That is dead sexy. :bowdown: 

    My only nitpick would be those radiating lines behind them. I agree With Cuillere, I think a soft motion blur would make them appear to be comin' right atcha!

    Wow. I never get this many replies when I post artwork. I guess this one turned out better than I thought.

    I started the linework before I saw the movie and before the concept art was posted so I had to make some adjustments to square up the designs. In the end, I liked the poses with the inverted arms so I left it the way it was.

    I was trying to capture the atmosphere and lighting of the Shanghai battle without including a potentially over cluttered background. I'm not sure how successful I was but I like the final product just the same.

    The line has been corrected.

    I always forget that the monitor on my laptop tends to be brighter and sharper than a lot of other computers/older computers. I actually did just that before I posted but I guess it wasn't enough. I've uploaded a new version that hopefully corrects your concerns.

    Thanks for all the replies, everyone.

    I think they look fantastic!

    You've really captured the dynamics of them. The poses that they are in really accentuate that. I don't know whether this was on purpose or not, but your faces on them makes them look much more feminine and beautiful.

    At the time I only had toy images for reference so I was more concerned with making sure I got the details right. Of course I wanted them to appear feminine and I'm glad to hear it's worked.

    I updated the first post with my best attempt at a wallpaper by request of DeceptiKreep. I also submitted it to the movie section of the fan art gallery (which, surprisingly, doesn't have any content yet. Weird).

    Thanks for all the comments, guys!
