    I've been doing a bunch of design work for bands lately. I got this Optimus I need to finish coloring from an ink drawing. I'll post it once it's done ;)  I might try some stop motion with sqweeks afterwords :D

    I'm sorry, but the official lyrics have one more doot in the third stanza.

    Thanks folks!
    As long as there's no time limit on that dare... :thumb 
    Cheers bud!
    Funnily enough Bumblebee was the easiest to do, he hardly needed any Photoshop help. Sphinx and Wheeljack both required a lot more work, especially Sphinx's transformation.

    One thing I could never figure out was how to make my figures walk naturally. Stopped me from doing anything more than just transformations.

    The problem is that most Transformers, even MPs with all their articulation, can't quite achieve the poses of a walk/run. I nearly always have to cheat in PS afterwards. On top of that you've got the added headache of keeping the figure balanced/propped up during the gravity-defying parts!

    Animating walking figures with stop motion is easier with a bit of post-production help. I've cheated incredibly using frame props to get the poses that the toy could not hold, but you have to take those out, frame by frame.

    After watching for an hour I have come to the conclusion that these are looped. :D

    That is one big desert, or the Autobots have a terrible sense of direction and a tendency to veer...

    Hahaha. You guys are nuts. ;)  I can barely pose my tfs without them falling over. Just thinking about stop motion with them makes my head hurt.
