    title spells it out.

    Edit: colours are up and rather then going with my original idea (it looked a little jarring) I went with something with a kinda half new half G1 deco

    I'd like to say its all me but I often have to photoshop little corrections. e.g. for this guy one of his hands was a little small so I had to rescale it.

    Any ways I've got cracking on the colours but like my seeker pics their are other elements that need to be made before I can call it done

    I'm always impressed by how you get a good mix of faint and bold detail on these guys. It's a really interesting effect. Do you scan pencil or ink first then scan?

    I see where you have a concern there, but things like that don't bother me, unless your aim is to have a physical illustration prior to your Photoshop coloring work. My view is that Photoshop is merely a tool like a pencil or paper, so if you use it for the effect you're looking for, you're good to go :)

    I draw over my pencils with ink first with a mix of 0.3 and 0.05 fine liner pens

    Well I do have a soft spot for cyber jets

    that's how I think of it but really like to nail it before I begin scanning if I can if only to motivate myself to improve.

    oh and colours are up. The flames and the GE logo are a nod to After Burner Climax

    only a drawing one so far.

    Its not impossible to say I will never make one I just don't know when. Also I'd need to spend some time deciding just how in depth it had to be. e.g. just covering the tools or to do a vid that would also covering why I do something and the best way to render XYZ and light ABC. If I do the latter it could be a very long post/video

    when I started I used our very own Josh's tutorial as a starting point. I've tried to go in my own direction since then but his tutorial is still one of the best

    Oh wow, the colors make it really pop! I can honestly tell you though, when I first saw the colors, I was a little taken back, but since I've been staring at it more, it makes more sense. XD it's good to see someone doing not so typical colors.

    I wonder what his alt mode looks like, since the deco for each wing looks different.

    Good job dude!
