    Hello fellow artists and transformers fans!

    First of all, call me Caro. I prefer that. Shorter but still working.

    Secondly, I also speak french so you can use that language with me, no problem!

    I'm a graphic designer and illustrator/painter that loves transformers since the 80's. 2 years or so ago, I started drawing transformers, for fun. That allowed me to learn new techniques of drawing and developp my art. I hope one day I'll be good enough to find a job as an illustrator or in the colouring field (I discovered that I really REALLY love colouring pictures...)

    So, people are always asking me to see my work. I thought it would be a great idea to share it with you too... Will be another way for me to recieve comments and learn even more! (and who knows... find a job!)

    Hope it'll please your fans eyes!

    You can have more of my work ( and more transformers stuff ) in my gallery:
    carorichard.deviantart.com http://www,carorichard.deviantart.com

    I'll start my gallery by posting one of my recent piece of art... My idea of what Jazz would look like in TF: Prime!

    And what about where I started?

    So... I'll post a few of the art I started with back in... what... 2010?

    I'm working a lot with Ben Hansen (AKA 1314) and coloring his stuff as well as creating backgrounds. So, here's one of our first collabs:

    And the last one for tonight, another collab with Ben Hansen (AKA 1314).

    Digitally colored by me, I also digitally painted the entire background.

    Hope you enjoy!

    I'm still amazed at the amazing gritty coloring you can pull! I mean, it reminds me of hand painted illustrations from the G1 era. Fantastic work, and great to see you here, it's a great place to get noticed, especially with your talent!

    Ah, the memories. I have to say that...*Magnus pokes my shoulder and mumbles something* ...ugh..hold on, Caro......*goes arguing with him and returns after few moments* There, I had to calm him after noticing the QuickSpin avatar you are using and was wondering when can we see Quickspin here. Hey, cant blame him, the bot is in love. XD but he can be quite irritating from time to time. ^^'
    Really good to see your art here, the boards has won a marvelous artist to the already talented group formed here already. ;)

    Well thanks! If I can continue developing my style and meet new awesome artists to learn and work with, I think I will like it here!

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Question like that, you saw my work elsewhere before?

    QuickSpin: Magnus! Calm down! I'll be home soon! lol

    Thanks Rigo! And please, tie him up somewhere before he crashes your computer!

    Thankies! I sure hope to be able to post more cool stuff soon! Working during the day (in a non-art related job mind you... ¬.¬) and having a baby at home makes my art go sssssslllllllloooooooooow!

    Rigo: I wont tie him up, he is free to roll around town but he does misses QuickSpin. Can you blame him? XD

    Magnus: I know but...*calling for her to whisper to her left audio receptor* Silverlight's lady friends are a bit cuckoo and chasing me now that you are out. Not saying that I am afraid of them just..you know...they can be scary....

    And here are a few other pieces...

    Both of them are from Livio Ramondelli. I had the honor of being allowed to color a few of his pieces. So here they are! Jazz and Ironhide!

    Still amazed but how great your colors fit Livio's art. Bah, your colors fit great in everybody's art. XD Which reminds me we havent work yet. :p  We gotta solve that. ^^
    I cant remember if Livio has an account here, would be nice to see his awesome art here.

    New art from CaroRichard

    Here are the colors and background for Powerglide! Ben Hansen is often in conventions and this picture will also join the others on his table! Pay him a little visit!

    If we were part of some other group, I would probably post there too. :p  I do find odd that nobody else "dare" to reply here, I mean, its a really cool picture!
    Ben's style keeps being one of my favourites. I liked how he took Powerglide and update him a bit. He even looks pissed on this one, probably about to strike on some Cons? ;) 
    And your colors are amazing! You respect the metallic finish on PG and the background is just stunning! The falling or flying effect is also so nicely done! :D 
    This will be a poster, right? Awesome collector's piece! ;)

    Thanks and I will!

    Thank you! I hope you'll like what is coming too!
