    Hi,

    This is my first post on this forum, I've been browsing here unregistered for a few months now, really enjoying all the creative energies, personalities and stories i've read. I've decided i'd plundge myself in the deep and throw you the first chapter of the story I thought up a while back.

    Also.. I'm a complete Photoshop n00b.. so I'm kinda happy with what I did with these even if its just extremely basic stuff :D 

    Just like in the original cartoon.. I'm switching from one faction to the other.

    So without further ado..

    Oh also.. I'm open to suggestions of any kind of course, how to improve this for you guys. I'm also looking for a name and personality for the "shell programming", I've been throwing around ideas for a few days now but I can't seem to decide on anything :(

    Good start, but you shouldn't make Megatron's lines so small, it's distracting.

    Oooh, very impressive start! Megatron is quite the unreasonable boss, isn't he?

    For a photoshop n00b, you've certainly got the glowy FX down just right. And nicely done with the Decepticon emblem in the last panel. :) 

    Megatron's dialogue could stand to be bigger and clearer though.

    Thanks all for the comments, i'll try and make it more readable next time the 'cons are up :eek: 

    I was actually hoping to post chapter 1, part 2 today (autobot side) but things got a little out of hand here so I had to resort to quickly whipped up low brow filler. Please note that it might be a bit harsh. If they offend/are against the rules I'll remove them :) 

    Poking fun at Arcee's numerous "romances"

    Nice start I like how Megatron just doesn't take any sh*t, and yeah larger text on Megatron. Split his text up into multiple panels if hes got a long monologue, plus you can use the separate panels for dramatic effect.

    I'm always for a serious/plot driven comic can't wait to see what you come up with

    Huh, quite a few questions running through my head here...

    The speech bubbles are perfect now, the dialogue is good, and the FX is top notch. I'd say this is shaping up to be an excellent series of serious photocomics.

    Thanks! :D  Maybe those questions will be answered sooner on later ;)  I'm following a stict "wing it" program when it comes to dialogue and characterisation (spelling might be off, just woke up). As long as it's all fits in with the pre-set story line arc, it's all good :D 

    Yesss.. I didn't notice that one :(  I just janked it out with a pair of tweezers. Safeguard doesnt need it, he fits all VP's points without any problem or looseness.

    I know, double posting is frowned upon.. but here's the long overdue Decepticon part. And it's a long one.

    Thanks guys. I try and do my best. All I need to figure out now is how to get awesome looking laser beams for when the fight sequences start coming up.
