    Something I've been meaning to do for a while. Props to Chaos Incarnate for his awesome tutorials and web comic.

    Notes to self:
    1. Turn off the timestamp when I'm not taking pictures of the kids.
    2. My smoke effect is terrible, figure out something better.
    3. Figure out why the macro on my point and shoot is so blurry.

    WOW! Prime hits the deck running. Very good first time out! The more pics you do the better the effects get. Hope to see more soon.

    Very nice start. :)  For smoke effects, if you have GIMP, I recommend trying the Galazy brushes and just playing with the color until you find something you like.

    3. Possibly your camera has auto-focus? You can probably get a clearer shot by moving the camera back a bit, or use manual focus if you have it.

    Anywho, I like it. The concept's cool so far.

    Nice! Definitely a good start. The photo manipulation with the Zakus is pretty awesome. Just work on improving your effects here and there. Might wanna turn off the timestamp on your camera settings too.

    That's one hell of a start, but it's kinda jarring to see Optimus fighting amongst the Gundam and other faction without another Transformer around. I'm not saying it's bad, it shows how dedicated he is to his motto, but it's just surprising.

    That's a nice start there. I'll definitely be following this! I especially like the mis direction before we see Prime.
