    I wanted to try my hand at this, so I whipped up a few frames to start off.

    We now join the Autobot/Decepticon war in progress.

    So we're just dropped in mid-story here? What continuity are we looking at: cartoon, Marvel comic, Dreamwave, IDW? Or is there any pre-existing context?

    Interested in how this proceeds. :thumb

    Yeah, I wanted to use the huge gap of time between G1 Season 2 and Transformers the Movie as pretty much a free roaming setting. So everything that's happened during and up until the movie. This is sort of what else happens. I'm going to take some liberties, however.

    I also wanted to start in the middle of some action because I like the way it kicks off. The few panels I put up were me just getting used to image making, but I wanted to start in the thick of an already existing war. I wanted to blow things up and maybe cause some death before answering questions.

    In this instance, what Rumble and Frenzy were exactly up to will be revealed. :) 

    I hope some get a fraction of the entertainment that I get from making these.

    So, in short, you're the "shoot first, ask questions later" type of soldier, eh?

    Interesting start! Classics are my favs so I'll keep watching this one. Liked the effects & backgrounds.

    Hopefully some updates soon.

    Another update. Please bear with me as I experiment with new techniques. I have story boards done up for another 20 panes.

    Boo for using the Music Label Soundwave! Too predictable. Cybertron Soundwave for Classics Soundwave! Plus it makes the eventual Blaster-Soundwave battle more interesting. ;) 

    Silly toy preferences aside, nice effects. How long it take you to do each "panel"?

    Hah! I can solemnly promise not to use the Universe Blaster. :) 

    Some panels are easier than others. Some take an hour and a half, some take twenty minutes. I'm still getting used to techniques so there is a ton of trial, error, throw away, then settle on something decent.

    EDIT: I did this up and don't really want to use it anywhere. I'll just post it out there because I wanted an excuse to use the TF Font.

    Very nice. Obviously the story's only just started so we can't really judge it yet, but the visuals are very well done. Looking forward to more.:thumb

    Nice effects! May I suggest a slightly larger font?

    That last panel of the first page, Prowl is rather see-through, kinda funny. BB is also in the "need evac" pic. I like the effort you've put into it, so don't think I'm mocking or criticising, it's just a bit funny. Everybody knows that if it takes me more than 5 minutes to photoshop, I won't do it. So I admire those who do, especially since your also finding the pics to put them into, double work phew!

    Keep 'em coming!!

    Thanks. :) 

    I'm trying to get better. Some of the stuff is more of a challenge to me since I'm color-blind (so the translucent crap isn't AS obvious to me). Basically, I'm trying to work out methods that show less of that because I know it's there a bit. I really do like criticism (you can even see mid-strip where I make the type infinitely more readable), it's the only way to improve.

    Added an issue Index to the first post for people like me who hate sifting through dozens of pages for updates. :)
