Cool. Reshooting is a pain in the aft, but sometimes it is better that way. Yeah, explosions can be a real pain. I tried a few different "looks", but in the end I did what was easy. I just use a custom Smoke/cloud brush that one of the tutorials on here showed me how to make, and add my preprogrammed "fire" glow. Maybee a blur or two. But it is much faster than some of the things I tried before. Personally I would go for segments. Keeps it managable for you, and leaves us wanting to see the rest. So we are moving our other conversation over here, right? Yeah. I just don't want things to get out of control with people arguing and such. Personally, I don't mind the long conversation. We are on a message board after all. That's kinda the point. To each their own I guess. Yeah, i had to edit some too. I regularly pm a few members around here, Only a few issues with the character limit so far. Yours looked pretty darn good....considering all the obstacles you face. Man, I don't even want to think about trying multiple transforms in one shot. That's a crazy headache. I think my worst panels to do were some of the multiple bots flying shots, and the aircraft carrier sequence. That thing was a pain to chop out with everybody standing on it. I typically get the best results when i just bite the bullet and do it by hand with the pen tool. Basically a "go around the object and connect the dots" method. Whenever I try out a different method....I end having to do some cleanup work. Sometimes things just happen that work out well. Of course, you seem to have an aptitude for learning gimp. Yeah, copy and paste is a wonderful function. lol I managed to snag the season three set from rhino. Pretty much have it memorized at this point. I saw all of season one when it was in reruns. But tv reception was spotty back then. Watched it "through the fuzz" So I'm pretty excited at the prospect of the whole series being released again. Yeah, I just don't know. Walmart wasn't around in my town. It was a fred meijers I saw mine at. I remeber looking at it with some birthday or holiday money, and passing it over for something else. Ghostbusters Probably. Yeah, It would be epic, but way out of my price range. I wanted MP grimmy so bad. But I only saw him that one time. My collection is sadly in need of Grimlock. The only one I have is the weird titanium War within one. This is true. I always loved the original Rodimus Prime. All he needed was articulation and he would have been great. Yeah Depth charge is pretty cool too. I actually got that messed up original universe repaint of him just because the toy was soo cool. Yeah, he's still pretty off from the show. But the fact that they managed the wheels at all was amazing to me at the time. Yeah they would balance each other out in a way. Oh man gameboy. Wow. I'm pretty sure there is one floating around here somewhere-doubtful that it still works. My issue is as a gamer, I only tend to play "licensed property" games. Like I only bought my original x-box because of star wars battlefront. lol all my games pretty much match whats in my comic.....terminator,star wars, alien and predator stuff. Dang. I guess if people are still willing to pay it. Wheew. That's a lot of gametime. I think the last "long game I played was star wars knights of the old republic."
