    After reading Last Stand of the Wreckers, my view on Perceptor being a nerdy scientist changed... drastically. :lol 

    I really wanted to find some line art of Perceptor and Guido Guidi has the best I've seen.

    "Awakening Perceptions - He was once just a scientist in the Autobot ranks. Not being much of a fighter, he stuck to his research to help his home world from falling into darkness. All of that changed when Perceptor's lab and fellow colleagues were attacked by Decepticon thugs. As he took up arms to defend his research the realization of the Great War hit closest to home. With all of his data destroyed and numerous friends slaughtered by the ruthless 'Cons, he knew that he would be best served on the field providing technical support for the Autobots. With his sudden overwhelming feelings of hatred toward the Decepticons, Perceptor vowed to do all he could to stop them. Thus he joined the Wreckers... to strike hard at his enemy"

    *UPDATE*

    A computer showing the screen 'downloading files' with a decepticon (Shockwave? Reflector? Soundwave?) lying on the floor with a shot to the head.

    I updated it with a background based on suggestions and a scene description.

    I really like the lighting for the background. I think that computer terminal needs a bit more tech detail on it. There's just something "off" about it to me that I can't quite place my finger on. The D-con lying there is cool too, but I think the perspective is a tad off.

    Mainly, I'd like to help figure all of this out because I REALLY like this piece a lot. :)

    Thanks

    I totally agree with you. I can't place my finger on what needs to be added, but after looking at it more, it looks plain. By tech detail, what do you mean?

    I'm going to go look for some comic pages that have computer terminals and see what they look like... maybe it'll come to me.

    Ok. I went back to do some changing to the computer terminal and I came to find out that the new file that I saved with the background got corrupted and all I had was the character art. :banghead: 

    I did not feel like starting over AT ALL, so I made due with the .jpg I had from the first scene. It's not perfect, but it did turnout better than I was expecting. :D
