    untitled first part for now,
    PAGE 1

    Im just letting you guys know, I ve been thinking bout this
    for a while, But today I decided to take the plunge and do
    a whole Transformers "movie concept" comic, of course
    im not going to call it Transformers the movie comic,
    Ill give it another name, IE: Transformers Battlegrounds, or
    some junk like that. But the premise is basically the same.

    All modern detailed interpretations of the original characters.
    This is going to be a long long long project, i may not even
    complete it, till the around the actual movie hits, cause ill
    be the only one working on it, story and art. And I wont be able
    to work on it every single day, therell be days weeks ill be
    able to get alot done, and days i cant get to do any work.

    The reason its goign to take long, cause im going to try not
    to skimp on the details, gonna try to make every panel to
    its best. I may not be able to accomplish that, but ill give it a
    try. The ultimate goal is to finish a graphic novel.

    Hey Im not working for no comic company, so there are no
    deadlines, I can take my time with this one.
    So dont be looking for any movie concept art anymore..
    I will share sample work from time to time to show you guys
    where im up to, and how its progressing,

    Nifty! The lines look great! I will say though that the very last panel... something looks off in perspective. Like the guy standing there isn't on the side of the road right. I think he may be too big, or the car in front too small.

    In the last square the car seems too small but besides that I'm loving the concept. :thumbs2: 
    Is that Hot Rod in one of the squares? Nice!.

    Nice work so far. I also have a problem finsihing these kind of projects. Theres nothing really wrong with the past panel, but maybe a different angle would help.

    you should be able to see more of the top of the car in the last panel. and in the first panel top right corner I think the moon should be rounder.

    overall I like it. are you going to just keep updating in this thread?

    Impressed as always with your work but I am definately excited about the whole concept....can't wait to see more

    Question: are you going to do each page as a whole b4 moving on to the next or will you tackle the entire project as drawings, the inks, the colors and so on?

    Thanks Roadbuster, yeah there are going to be some off perspectives, at least for teh first couple ofpages, the more pages
    I do, the more that problem will be rectified. Ive never really
    sat down and practiced my perspectives, thats one of the reasons
    i wanna do this comic, Thanks.

    Thanks Brave, yeah that is Hotrod.

    Thanks Cobra Commander, means alot

    Thanks Shin, perhaps down the line ill get a lil better with how
    to angle thigns and what not.

    Thanks TGping, perhaps i can play around with the perspective
    on the last one maybe shorten or lengthen some lines, THanks

    Thanks Blue streak, all the lines will be done first, then the colors
    then the dialogue, or I may do the dialogue first, not sure yet.

    How long does it take you to produce such a page ( in a matter of hours ) ?
    If you do that quick enough, you have a good chance to becaome a storyboard artist.

    Oh....man.... Prowler, that is really some great stuff you've got going there. Despite the perspective issues, you've really got some great detailing there. On the first page, I think I can see Hot Rod, Kup, and Sideswipe or Sunstreaker (in vehicle modes), as well as Ultra Magnus. Again, this is very good work and I'm excited to see how all of this progresses.

    Prowler, from the start, your mastery of lines and geometry for mechanical stuff has been absolutely fantastic. It's so fun watching your stuff show up. Fantastic work, as usual. Can't wait to see more good stuff.

    I love your stuff, maybe someone should knock on IDW's door on Prowlers behalf. God knows that's how Don started.

    Make your life a little easier though, get a circle stencil or protractor. Drawing circles within circles (ie: the wheels on panel 4 pg 1) will make you nuts. Some of them even have centering marks.

    I, for one Appreciate insane amount of detail work and it shows the amount of effort you've put in every panel:)  some perspective problems but it's very minor. if anything, I would suggest you consider playing with lighting effects, adding some shading to give the scenes some depth, (like under the car) everything a bit 2D at the moment and the details of the foreground and background elements seem to blend together.

    Adding bolder outlines on the moving Characters/focal points would help alot as well

    Hey thanks there StarCracker
    Yeah the only way ill get
    better with the perspectives
    is to keep doing them, lol
    you are right about hot rod
    kup, and sideswipe, I think
    the other guy is just some
    random bot, lol ya know what
    cause you thought it, I think
    I will make one of those big
    trucks ultra magnus. Originally
    it wasnt suppose to be, but
    your the second person who
    thought so, so might as well
    make it so, Thanks man.

    Thanks Soundwarp,
    appreicates it

    OP thanks man, I know my
    weaknesses, and I know me
    strengths, perspectives may
    but me a bit, but I love
    detailing, now If I can get
    both to be perfectly asthetic,
    then ill be happy, THanks man

    LOL your prob right, I really
    need to get my lazy ass over
    to an art store, and invest in
    a circle oval template of some
    sort. And I apprecite the
    kind words man, appreciates it.
    Thanks Infosaur.

    Hey coming from cobra
    commander, that means
    alot, THanks man

    Thanks Fretburn, yeah there
    going to be alot of guess the
    transformer cameos in the
    intro pages, LOL i think i started
    somethign I didnt mean to,
    but its cool, tis all about fun
    reading comics. And ill keep
    doing guess the transformer
    game.. :cool: 

    lol thats cool brave magnus,
    Iam a Christian, but I dont judge, "of course I never curse"
    :lol  yeah right
    Thanks for the input man.
    appreciates teh kidn words.

    WOW, iam honored, the
    master himself commented
    on my work. Ya know I will
    definatley take heed of those
    suggestions. Your right
    It could definaltey use
    the bold outlines, infact thats
    what im going to do now
    for page 3, add some bolder
    outlines to the characters
    here and there. I may have
    to use the shading also.
    Thanks Don, I appreciate it.
    LOL i think ill print this post
    out, and frame it now.

    Very nice work indeed, Prowler. Don covered most of what I was going to suggest so I'll comment on the very cool looking Grapple you drew on pg.2 that resembles Cybertron OP a little. (cause I was wondering how that might look.) Any chance for a Robot mode for him?

    BTW, you would be surprised at how many "pros" get by on a page a day in this industry. (or less)
