    Figured it would be fun to try and color somebody elses lines sometime and this whas as good of a subject as ever.

    Straight from the "mythic BW" topic; Shinmusashis Hydra Megatron.

    Lines by him, colors by me. Did the best I could despite not having a bigger scan.

    That's awesome. He looks more like a starscream than a megs to me. Either way great job weremole. You should tackle another one of musashi's badass beasts!

    WOW!! Thats awesome. It's the first time i've seen my work in color. But i do agree with Cromagnus that the colors on the head look like starscream. Maybe change the helmet part to the greyish colors as well. But other than that it's great.

    That just rocks. But a greyish head would look better. But still thats just plain awesome.

    Photoshop. Pick a version.


    Well. I tried dark face/dark helmet and light face/light helmet. But I wanted to keep the colors down as to not overcrowd the scheme. I thought no one would care the shade of the helmets color as Marvel UK G1 Megatron had a black helmet as opposed to the US white one.

    Very cool! But he seems like he should be bigger, bulkier for Megs.

    Awesome line art with equally awesome colours. Also, I much prefer the black helmet. In my opinion, a grey helmet would look odd. But it's up to you. Whatever you go with, it looks great. :thumbs2:

    Gotta say again the colors are great. I keep going back to look at the pic. I was gonna say the colors on the head are to close to the colors i had in mind for the Fenrir character. Still the colors are awesome.

    Very nice colouring, though the red eyes do indeed make him look quite a bit like Starscream. I like how you went for Beast Megs' colour scheme :wink:
