    So here's my first stumble into Transformers Prime. My goal was to make it look like those concept arts that were 2D, but touched up to try to look 3D. I tried to make him look shiney, but I have only the most basic knowledge of how light works.

    The embedded image isn't the best quality, I tried attaching the original but it kept failing. :(  So it'll have to do. Attached as well is my pitiful WIP of the jet mode. (I hate doing vehicles)

    Thanks, and yeah, I think the Prawn thing comes from the fact thet I tried to hid his mouth so he sort of resembled the pre-mouthed concept. He does have a mouth, though. (it's where the grey face meets the black "lip")

    Good job on the art but bad character to pick for jetfire. I thought he was horrible in ROTF.

    True greatness is often difficult to absorb at first, but I'm sure you'll come around eventually.

    BEHOLD, THE ETERNAL GLORY OF JEEETFIRE!

    Wow, I was unaware of you great artistic skills, Split, I'm surprised, I'm greatly surprised.

    And liked this Prime-Jetfire a lot! Sounds pretty fitting with the aesthetic presented on the series [though this design would also fit smoothly with Animated as well] and pretty loyal to ROTF-Jetfire as well.

    I do think, however, that he should be a little more rusty and darker on his colors [made almost entirely of black].

    But I do like this design a lot [though I was sad to realize that you didn't put the Blackhawk as his alt mode], I would love it if they used in the show.

    Man, that's actually a cool idea, I so would if I didn't totally blow at drawing vehicles. :lol

    That's great. I would be all over Prime right now if he was in there and looked like this, along with that new Barricade who showed up at BotCon.

    You did a wonderful job with keeping in the style and making a 2D drawing look 3D.

    The art looks good, but I'm not so sure on the design for the robot mode. It's too much of a 1 on 1 of ROTF Jetfire, instead of taking cues and doing something new with it. The proportions are a bit weird too, since as far as I can remember, all of the TFP bots so far have mostly humanoid proportions. Maybe you could straighten out his legs a bit more (not too much though since he's still an old man) and get rid of the middle neck piece? With doing the latter you can keep the hunched look, or maybe go for a hooded look.

    Oh, and I really like the head, btw! Especially the cockpit piece. Great way to sneak a bit of G1 Jetfire in, while keeping ROTF the major inspiration. :thumb

    Looks wonderful, but I feel like there should have been distinctions between his ROTF version and prime version, you know? You're art is magnificent, I'm just giving a personal opinion.

    To all those saying he should look less like ROTF Jetfire.... he's supposed to look like ROTF Jetfire. :confused:  I mean, he's not a carbon copy, I actually changed quite a lot, but I wanted him to immediately look like that character, just in Prime style. But thanks for the comments and crits! :D

    Awesome job! Now we need his father, the wheel! The first wheel! Seriously, I think your style would make for a great rendition of Scrounge.

    Scrounge must be drawn with honor, DIGNITY DAMN'IT!

    I still like the vehicle you put [or what on eaerh that jet was meant to be], though, even more because you apparently hates doing vehicles, but this one was pretty cool [just a bit unoriginal].
