    OP: Mix of Toon and Toy; G1 and Masterpiece

    Now that I'm more confident in my abilities to draw tf's I wanted to start developing my own style. So who better to start with then my favorite bot? He's a mix of toon and toy, both G1 and Masterpiece. My favorite parts are the G1 toy shoulders, arms, and wheels on his hip. I have the exaggerated curvy lines on purpose, I want it to have a tagged feel, if that makes sense. I took a sketch I started 2 years ago as the base and developed it. This is 22x28, like my version of Nich Roche's PM OP, and will end up on my wall.

    Here are the wip pencils, I think I'm ready to ink.

    edit: FINISHED!!!

    I certainly think this is a good experiment in branching out with your own style :) 

    Optimus' head looks a little squashed in, but other than that, it looks like you're off on a great start. Keep us posted! :thumb

    when you say squashed are you refering to his mouth plate or that his helmet is to narrow?

    awww, you meant width wise, i was thinking you meant depth. making it shorter and wider really helps it out. i'll remember that on the next one.

    Thanks for the help!

    so this was my "study" before i started the big version. you see the changes i made. i went ahead and colored this to see what it would look like and other than the yellow eyes and areas on the arms this is what i went with. also decided to add the trailer stripe to break up the background. i suck with the cast shadows on things with slanted edges and raised areas so if you see anything that needs to be changed and/or added, please let me know because i haven't started them on the real version yet.

    did some more work. decided to grab a pencil and shade overtop the marker. i'm trying really hard to make the face look more 3d and not flat/smushed. if anyone has any tips or suggestions please fell free to make them. oh, and the stripe isn't crooked, the picture was when i shot the pic.

    Looks sweet! Only thing I would do is darken up the neck a little bit. The face shield gets lost in it a bit. I think just a little more contrast would make it pop.
