    I wanted to represent the 80s with that old school shading style that made my eyes google at the tv screen as a child. Thank God I still remember how to do it.

    Anywho, continuing with my Trickshift theme. I wanted to show a working "nude" endoskeletal frame...show what's beneath all those alt mode parts. This is the result.

    Oh, and I wanted to show her "gel packs/mammaries" (as you guys call them) at full capacity.

    Very curious to hear your thoughts.

    I've uploaded the Hi-Res version on my DeviantART page for anyone who's interested. Makes a nice print.

    Quite impressive, People don't think to much on the inner workings.

    Very nice! I like how clean your linework looks, and it's definitely more complicated in terms of plating, etc.

    I think the only thing that I took a double take at was the light on her abdominal plating.. Everything apart from her stomach seems to have the light underneath them, but her stomach seems to have a light shining from above, and not necessarily the light from her... jubblies.

    I do like the cell shading though.

    Are those toes down there on her foot? Oh, and excellent work - your art style is probably my favorite around for 2d work. Also your functionality reasoning behind her robo-knockers actually works. I never ever stopped to think about how a fembot's chest area works. Although it does look like she has a helmet on still; I've always imagined that underneath of the helmet most Cybertronians would have 'hair' that was actually made up of wires. Maybe that's just me, though.

    This is amazing, for some reason it reminds me of Samus taking a break from a suit...albeit the lack of human presence in your pic.
    I love the glow and colours in her breasts and the little human inspired details on her robot body. She even subtly has an ass. Form = function, works.
    I must say, I don't really like that bottom pink glow, kind of distracting.
    Still, this is beautiful work.
