    Thank you! I appreciate it. :) 

    It's a mixture of a little planning making sure the perspective matches on all parts of the picture. That way when it's combined, the Robot looks like it is in the same perspective plane as the shot. Then it's a matter of making sure the lighting and shadows are also matching the background shot...and then of course it all has to be combined in Photoshop. Once there, you can tweak things here or there...but if most of it hasn't been planned right, you won't get it to look real....but if you plan it out right, then it's amazing that most of the little mistakes don't get noticed by the eye. :) 

    Oh...and a great lens helps but it's not required.

    Really wished that Wheeljack's colors were as vibrant as Exhaust.


    Also just noticed that Exhaust has his name on his spoiler.

    I've wanted to differentiate Exhaust from Wheeljack in robot mode, so I've used Exhaust's weapon as a wrist launcher instead of a shoulder launcher. Have also played around with the position of his spoiler wings, either straight up or diagonally inward.
