    Lame pun title is lame. :p 

    I decided to take a different approach to the shading/highlights in coloring him than some of my previous Transformers pieces. This went a little faster, and I think the end result is better.

    Here's the original line art.

    Lemme know what you guys think. :D

    Very nice !

    The colours somehow give more depth to the shading.

    I like it a lot. That line art really looks nice as well as the shading. What tools are using?

    Faber-Castell pens to ink and a program called GIMP for coloring. I highly recommend both. The Faber-Castells last a LOOOOOOOOONG time - I bought a 4-pack for about $12 last summer at a Hobby Lobby, and I use them quite frequently. Haven't had to throw any of 'em away yet. DEFINITELY worth the $12.

    And GIMP is kinda/sorta a knock-off of Photoshop, but it's absolutely free to download. It's not as advanced as Photoshop is, but it's the knowledge of how to use it is what produces the results. :)

    Interesting. I'd never heard of GIMP before. Your colors look sticky sweet. I want to bite it.
