    I'd like to see a third, darker color for some more shadowing, but yeah, as others have said this is really clean. Nice work :thumb

    Thanks again!

    Superquad7: I can explain this! On this job I didn´t use black with 30~40% opacity for the shading. I use darker tones of the same color... But this technique is hard to be applied...

    2D Artwork: G1 Ironhide and Ratchet

    NICE!!!!!!!! I'm digging it!!

    Was wondering if there was an online tutorial you could direct me to - I also draw Transformers, mostly OCs. Just got a copy of Gimp 2 (I'm unable to get Photoshop), have some line art, and I'm ready to color. Looking forward to hearing back. Thanks.

    Sincerely,

    Sablebot

    Answer to What's GIMP?

    GIMP is basically the poor man's version of Photoshop: GIMP - for Windows

    I guess that since it's similar to Photoshop the principles and procedures would be very close.

    Really don´t know about this software. The tutorial is about Photoshop.
