    Hi,

    Currently I'm creating a custom box for my pimped reflector.

    Now I want to create a cool boxart pic of the three robots for the box.
    The art has to look a bit like the pose of Soundwave, only then with the three robots in a row. (like in the TV series)
    Only I'm not sure how to begin. I can handle photoshop really well, but am not really familiar with drawing in photoshop. I thought of redrawing Soundwave with a pencil and then alter it like reflector. After that redraw it with a black pen, scan it and finish it in photoshop. Does anyone have some advice for me on how to begin?
    Or maybe someone is willing to draw a beautiful (coloured) reflector for me that I only have to scan and place in my box design. Any help is appreciated!!
    Thanks a lot!!!

    instead i think you should get hte boxart of soundwave, and edit it to look like reflector by pasting bits on and changing colours etc

    That's OK man, I've been busy with creating the three robots in photoshop. It's a heck of a job, but in a few weeks it's probably finished. I received an image of a cool reflector in camera mode and did some customizing on that pic as well. Only resolution is quite low so printing it isn't an option.

    But it looks cool though:

    you can fix low resolution easy enough.. just resize it up to as big as you need, then use the reduce noise filter, if you play with the sliders then you shoud be able to get something that looks pretty nice
