    Photoshop CS3, Wacom Intuos3... forget how long I spent on it.

    Water puddles *suck* to paint, just in case you haven't already learned this. :) 

    Comments, critiques, whatevahs, all appreciated. :)

    it's very cool, but the placement of that hole near his crotch seems so very wrong.

    dude!

    the rolling clouds look kinda off in the top left area (too angular?) but i like your style, overall. its a change from comic style illustrations.

    For those concerned with Optimus' hole on his crotch area:

    The ratio of people that notice it vs do not notice it is 5:50... I don't see it as a big deal. People don't have problems with making pseudo-nipples on fembots on purpose, I can do it on accident. Get over it...

    Thanks! The clouds were kind of thrown together... I didn't want to make them too well done to distract from the main scene... so I'll have to keep in mind to not let them go too much next time that they're a distraction now for the wrong reasons, haha.

    Oddly, I've just been commissioned to do a Ratchet pic,. lol

    Thanks. :)  I don't see realism and Transformers done too often in painting, so that's what I was aiming for.

    Exactly my mentality.

    Megatron's time will come. I think there will be a followup to this piece someday.

    Perhaps... ;) 

    Victory!!

    I LOVE IT! But I'd love it even more if Prime got rid of that hole crotch thingy. But I love the dark G1/movie styled design.
