    Agreed. It’s a perfect combination that screams Optimus prime.

    Thanks! I do like the S1 and S2 heads we're getting (and S2 is my personal ideal one) but I would have loved to have gotten a third one more like the Devastation head. That's more what I imagine when I think of S1 Prime in my mind.

    Sorry for neglecting this thread, I'm working on another digibash but I also need to update my watermark to be more prominent and harder for Weibo thieves to remove. Then I'll put up everything I've been doing!

    Some of these look pretty nice and decent especially a few of your most recent edits. great job. :thumb 
    --------------------------------------------------------
    and in response to something a previous person said:

    Not to play devil's Advocate but, People making a DIGIBASH and calling it "ART" (when in actuality it's an IMAGE/ PHOTO EDIT/MANIPULATION.) (First time for everything I guess)

    I do them often as well. But if somebody takes them, I don't care. the original product or photo or image isn't mine so I hardly have the right to accuse people of theft if they decide to take them and post them elsewhere. And hey, if they say THEY did it. I don't care since I'm the one with the original file showing all the layers of the work I did. "meh"

    It's not like they can be sold and whatnot. If anything the moment people choose to manipulate/edit/"bash" an image/art/photograph THEY are the people defacing things without proper permission eh? ;)  Unless of course you are doing it to a photo you took or a piece of art you drew yourself.

    Just saying.

    Thanks man-- I really don't care much about getting credit or whatever, I just feel bad that they tried to pass it off as news and some people were fooled, etc.

    Hard to be fooled if you have the words done in a nice BOLD font saying "COLOR EDIT BY: SO an so" as an example or... adding in your own backgrounds can help as well.

    for example:

    The things people do in GIMP amazes me a lot sometimes.

    I tend to use Photoshop as my personal goto editing software. :)

    I actually don't like to refer to my own digi stuff as art either haha. I am most definitely in the process of making a big giant signature watermark thing to put on mine from now on so they can't just cut it off (mostly so no one tries to pass it off as official or thinks I was trying to trick them).

    Thanks and your stuff has been looking impressive as well! Feel free to post any Masterpiece stuff here if you want to! I'd love to have multiple people posting here!

    I posted most my digis of this Prime in the official MP-44 thread. :D 

    I honestly didn't feel comfortable posting them in the fanart thread.

    In the official MP-magnus thread I did some digis years ago showing him off before colored shots came out of the toy, same with Powered Convoy.

    I do enjoy doing color edits of stuff sometimes. It honestly is fun.

    That was the place I used to put these, until some vocal complainers kept insisting that they wanted only news, and digibashes didn't count because they were "fan art". I tried to argue that they were not art, haha. So to avoid a bunch of conflict several others and I quit posting stuff there and I reluctantly started this thread. Hopefully they'll leave you alone! (If not, just ignore them ;)  )

    Yeah that’d probably work well for you chchchch. Also damn gauge that’s some sick work there.
    Same dude. Never fails. Except when you got a big lasso that takes ages. You should put more stuff here.

    Finally have some time to repost this from the MP-44 Appreciation thread (just copying and pasting the entire post below):

    Here is my possible last digibash of MP-44+ (G1 toy) in robot mode--the "vanilla" pose. If this is any good, much credit must go to @Sam for a ton of feedback and great suggestions! Oh and to @RichP for originally suggesting MP-22's hidden face as the basis of the head design! Oh and to @Digger for suggesting in the first place that I try to do an updated toy head in line with 36+!

    MP44+ G1 Toy Standing.jpg

    Here is two more of the same thing, but with the S2 head in both toy and comic colors (i.e., blue vs. black face under the mouthplate):

    MP44+ G1 Toy Standing S2 Head.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing S2 Comic Head.jpg

    And I've also updated my previous digibashes of MP-44+ to match the final colors and tampo design/placement of this latest version:

    MP44+ G1 Toy Jumping.jpg MP44+ Truck G1 Toy.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Running.jpg

    Finally, under the SPOILER tag are all the intermediate stages we went back and forth trying to determine the optimal head shape, insignia size, and tampo design, included so that you can feel our pain!!!

    MP44 Running 1.jpg MP44 Running 2.jpg MP44 Running 3.jpg MP44 Running 4.jpg MP44 Running 5.jpg MP44 Running 6.jpg

    MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 1.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 2.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 3.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 4.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 5.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 6.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 7.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 8.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 9.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 10.jpg MP44+ G1 Toy Standing 11.jpg

    Great stuff dude. And Jesus that’s a lot of intermediate designs. I don’t think I could ever handle that. Hats off to you.

    Thanks man, and I'm not sure if the need to try out that many versions is a good or bad quality, haha.

    Okay here I finally am with an update. Jesus it’s been a while.
    9FE07AE5-13E2-4ECF-81C0-C9052D3E9EBE.jpeg
    I present my digibash of hoodlum into kiss players hot rod. Giving him a much stronger red with oranges, yellows and added white. With flame decals on the arms free handed. One of my most impressive projects and I’ll be sure to get the alt mode pics as soon as possible.

    Wow man!! Amazing job! I do think it's one of your best. The decals are pretty insanely good, especially for free handing them! Yes, I must see that alt mode now!
