    This is something I'm messing around with. The benefit of having and extra day off every week now gives me a WHOLE DAY to bs.

    PLEASE LEAVE PHOTOSHOP TIPS, AND OTHER COMMENTS! I suck at photoshop, and I'd like to get as good as some of the excellent effects I see on here.

    Prologue:

    Autobot City has just been attacked and MANY of the Autobots have been killed. The new Decepticon commander has somehow organized the Decepticons into a much more effective fighting force. He is on the verge of turning the tide of the war.

    This has forced Optimus Prime to reconsider his strategy. He is left to question all he has learned, while on the other side, the new Decepticon leader basks in arrogant bliss.

    Both are left to ponder the Rules of Engagement....

    Just what I was gonna say. As for photoshop effects, take a looky at the Tutorial Thread It's got lots of good stuff.

    Look forward to seeing how this plays out, letting them live might not be the best choice Screamer...

    Who makes up the Decepticon Battle Fleet? I suggest, if you have them availible, if that's Henkei Starscream probably Skywarp, Acid Storm, Ramjet and Thundercracker as officers, maybe Onslaught as strategist, Barricade as counter intelligence, Cyclonus once he's released, and go on from there.

    And who make up the Autobots if some are gone? The already made Classics/ Universe Autobots?

    Very, VERY cool!:thumbs2: 
    So Starscream's finally "made it" after all these years, and done a better job than either Megs or Galvatron! Loved the dialouge for the two "offscreen" leaders, I could tell who it was long before I saw them. Also, nice touch with Megs using his ability to link the fusion cannon to a black hole. I don't think I've ever seen anyone actually have him try to use that before in a comic!
    Bring on more I say!

    Nice start! IMO, I think you should not use the gradient for the word balloons--at least not for all of them. It makes some text difficult to read, and is a bit distracting (for me), making the panel look too busy.

    The other thing I'd suggest is putting the word balloons and their text in after the effects are done.

    I love that ripple effect in the first panel! How did you do that?
    More, please :popcorn

    Thanks for all the comments guys. Otispq, thanks for pointing me to the rather OBVIOUSLY placed tutorial thread that I completely missed somehow. :dunce 

    The cast is going to be rather large (at least 18 per side), and it does take place in some form of the generation one universe.

    The next update will be tomorrow or Thursday afternoon. I'm playing around with photoshop trying to get used to all the effects I have at my disposal.

    Oh and Starfire, the ripple effect is a distortion effect from Paintshop. I allows you to distort parts of the picture. No talent involved, just my overactive imagination :D
