    This looks like a re-creation of a Scorponok picture in the TF: Genesis art book.

    If this was freehand, it is a very nice recreation of that picture.

    I think you mean the Tranformers: More Than Meets The Eye profile books from Dreamwave. The Skorponok resembles one done by Don Figuerora right down to the pose. As far as the drawing goes it looks pretty decent. If anything, I'd recommend you clean up the pencil lines and define them a little more. It'll make the drawing stand out more.

    Oh ok, these are straight up MTMTE pictures...

    I could have swore I saw them elsewhere...

    If they are freehand, they are pretty good.

    Yup both this one and the Megatron one are the same alright.

    Gary, since you're kinda new to the internet, you should realise that when drawing stuff like this for practice, meaning, copying art using a reference, that's ok. HOWEVER when actually posting it, ALWAYS state what you've used as reference (and why you copied it, ie. for practice purposes or something) and how, traced or freehand or whatever else.

    Otherwise people will assume you've completely made this up yourself - pose, details, etc. - which you obviously did not do, if people recognise the art as originally made by others - and they will - they may flame you for stealing art and it might even result in bannings from forums.

    So please keep in mind that there are copyrights on every image you encounter, on the internet and in books, show some courtesy to the creators who indirectly or directly help you by mentioning them, it only takes one minute to write that. :)

    My eyes are pleased.


    I'm not really against copying other people's work, just so long as you give credit to them. So, no worries with me.

    He states who drew it and wrote the book.

    and
