    Just something I made for myself, initially, but I thought I'd share.

    The custom green was going to be used for Junkions, but I figured it could be thrown in for whatever use.

    The yellow eyes are also used by the Constructicons and Jetfire (for some reason) so I'm not sure what to label it as.

    Feel free to use this for reference in your own work. :)

    I'm sorry, I don't see the use of this 'chart', nor do I think we could classify any eyecolors except blue (Autobots) and red (Decepticons) into special reasons. They're mostly specific reasons why (Constructicons had yellow eyes to show their neutrality, Jetfire because he has a fire power, Swindle as a homage to his G1 version who had it).

    Like you said, you made it for yourself, probably easy to use for color picking the exact colors for fanmade characters..but there's not so much anyone can say about it..

    Hope this isn't considered offensive?..Just being honest here...

    I use them for coloring vectors actually - I do a lot of traces of TFA art, usually for SG color schemes. This is just something I use for reference when I need the eye colors.

    I just uploaded for people who'd also like an accurate color reference. Hope I didn't somehow offend by sharing this? o_o;

    Haha no, of course not. Maybe some people will it useful - although I don't see why it would be more useful than just color picking from already existing (official) art, which wouldn't take too long anyway.

    So if it saves a couple of minutes, what's the real gain in using this? That's all I'm saying..

    But I'll quiet myself now and will go back to my drawing corner..please don't feel bad about sharing this, that's certainly not my intention! :thumbs2: 

    (sometimes I find it hard to be honest on non-art forums, because most of the times all people get is rows of 'good job!!' comments, without any critism, resulting in people not being able to take critism well anymore..even if the intention is not to bully or troll the artist)

    Technically, a lot of the 100%, red-eyed Decepticons don't even have "pupils" in their eyes.

    I think green should be used for potential Maximals. :D

    I think yellow means neutral. The Constructicons were neutral, and I think the half Autobot/half Decepticon coding in Jetfire caused them to be yellow.

    Or color coordination. :3
