Hey all, Well we all have to start somewhere. When i was alot younger i really enjoyed drawing. When you get engrossed you get into a kind of zone where you're happy and want to just keep on drawing!! Well i've finally decided after years and years of false starts at getting back into drawing that i am finally going to dedicate large portions of my free time to getting back into my former hobby. As a warm up attempt I dusted off a sketch i did of War Within Prime (from Don's cover), i finished it off and inked it. The inking was done using technical pens (available from your local art store) and is the first time i've ever attempted to ink something. I guess this is the first area that needs addressed. I decided to go free hand on the inking rather than use the computer or ruled edges. As you can tell this much is obvious. The lines lack control and in some places look awful (actually in a lot of places) so my question in relation to this is as follows, do you TF artists in general go free hand on your work or do you use some aids such as ruled edges? I'd like to accumulate as much info as i can from this image based on feedback from you guys and then apply it to the next drawing (which is based off a G.I. Joe/TF - The Art of War image featuring Bumblebee). So any and all advice will be greatly appreciated and put to good use! Oh and don't judge the picture too harshly when comparing it to the original, i mean there's no way it was ever going to match that. Judge it on it's own merits please.
