    Hey all. :)  I've been on an Animated hype for a while now and have spent some of my time making some TFA pics. Instead of making multiple threads for each I'd just split them into two threads: one for my fan characters, one for official character based peices.

    So, without further delay...

    Argh, for some reason teh transition from flash file to Gif erases and discolours certain parts. I'll have to revise but for now, enjoy what I've got up. :D  Comments and crits are always welcome.


    EDIT:

    The revolution begins NOW.

    I am particularily proud of this one. I couldn't think of a good pose for him so I made him with his arms out as he rallies the automatons of Detroit. I actually made his red outlines to emulate the "just reborn" shot where he merges with his fellows, it also helped seperate him from the background.

    Yeah, I have no idea what happened. It's supposed to be lighter shade of the grey. (which is supposed to have a blue tint to it) But for some reason it makes it... blue. Blitzwing I managed to fix, but SS will take some fiddling.

    Thanks for the comment, though. :thumb

    Marvelous rendering, but...

    If Starscream's legs get any thinner and he'd snap off at the knees!:eek:

    It's purposly exageratted. It's taking the Animated art style and making it even more stylized.

    But by stylizing it, you lost a lot of detail. More-so on Blitzwing than Starscream.

    Not at all bad, the Blitzwing pose is very good.

    Detail was never an issue. I purposely omitted certain "unnessesaries" because if I didn't, I'd just be replicating the characters models, and there's no fun in that. (actually, comparing Blitzwing to his character model, I really didn't exclude that many details minus the little purple lines on the black strips across his chest) Most of his arm is just blocked by the perspective of the fist. EDIT: Ack! I forgot the little round things on his heels. I'll have to add those later.

    The only omisions I did not like to do were... not doing the faction symbols. I'm not quite good enough at doing those yet. :(  (Though when I do, all three will be updated :) )

    Thanks! :thumb 

    Now the big question: Who's next? I'm thinkin' Swindle. I want to make sure I have Lugnut's design down before I start him.

    Well done, the poses are very fitting of the characters.

    As to who's next, how about Wasp? The crazies are always fun.

    Ooo, that sounds good. I'm working on Swindle now, but I'll do Wasp afterwards. (He's a little guy, so he should be fun. ;) )

    The red lines on Soundwave don't look right for some reason, they just don't really fit. maybe another color?? but I love the piece besides that.:thumbs2:  It just looks a little off.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe light blue to match the light blue lines on his body? Maybe instead I'll just outline him instead of making all his lines like that.

    EDIT: How's about this?

    Ooo, much better. And nice filename. XP

    I really like your interpretation of Blitzwing. But I agree that Starscream's legs are a bit on the extreme side. I won't say anything about the coloring since you said that got messed up... But otherwise, very nice! Can't wait to see more. :D
