    Here's my take on it. As you can see, it was kind of a work in progress. I started off simply copying a freeze-frame of him speaking to Megatron at Hoover Dam. I had to figure out how his facial mechanics worked first. After that I started trying to figure out how to get him to emote more clearly. I tackled Starscream first since in my opinion his design is the toughest to handle. I'm still not entirely pleased with it, and it'll probably take a few more tries before I can break it down and simplify it more to my liking. I'm actually trying to make it faithful but a bit more cartoonish and less detailed. My inspiration is the Bruce Timm and Glen Murakami art designs for many of the recent DC comics animated shows such as Batman, Superman, and Justice League. As you can see, I've still got a ways to go.

    HOT.. er ahem u.u.

    I mean really well done. I love sketches and these actually help me out too. It kinda looks like his neck is like a birds/raptors/bird of prey, in a sense that they can have their necks all low and their heads close to their bodies (and look all creepy and evil like, trust me, of you owned a parrot you'd know what I was talking about). Or stretch it out to look at something or show some kind or emotion.. am I making an sense >_>?

    It's good, but the laughing face is too cheesy.

    Awesome - normally, I have a hard time figuring out how Starscream's head works.

    You have great artistic style, but wow ... I just realized that Movie Starscream is Mer-Man in disguise.
