    :jawdropper: :bowdown: .......I'll still enter (for fun, and it would be a waste of some good art if I didn't at least try), but, there's an extremely small chance that I'll win, lol (though depending on the rules of the competition, I could still have a chance at winning, though that's unlikely imo, lol).

    Don't be modest. Looking at mine again, if I were to re-do the bot-mode (rushed it a little) I might still have a chance. Would anybody be interested in a sneak peak of what mine looks like so far (tha alt-mode, as it's better, lol)?

    Yeah show a sneak peak. To be honest my motorcycle wheels look like melted donuts and I got lazy on Prowls hands..lol Both are a combination of toy and animation model with some of my own details.

    I might as well. It doesn't really show much of what the whole final product is, imo, though if anybody thinks it does I'll make it smaller, and possibly make it of a different area (don't think anybody will be that honest though, lol). BTW, I got this methond aproved by Optimus himself, so it's alright for the contest.

    (took it down for now, just in case Optimus doesn't want us showing anything yet)

    Edit: Just did some tweeking to the bot-mode pic, and I might not have to re-do it, though I'll still probably end up doing so, but I'll wait till tommorow afternoon to do that (I should be getting to bed soon, as I need to be up a bit earlier than usual tommorow).

    I tried working off toy pics, but all that black plastic just sorta melts together in the pictures. great for that sneaky/stealthy look, absolute rubbish for a reference picture.

    Sounds excellent. This is so awesome of you.


    Can you clarify one thing for me- what do you mean by "watermarked?" I am planning on putting my name and the TF animated logo somewhere in there, but I feel that a giant "DO NOT STEAL" type watermark over the whole image really interferes with the art. I just want to make sure I meet the rules requirements.

    Thanks!

    If you have a program like Photoshop.
    Create what ever you want to use as a "watermark", place the layer over the pics
    and then select your blending options and play with the Opacity slider. There should
    be a simaliar option with all Photo editing software. That should do the job you want it too.

    Thanks for posting the rules. I've decided to completeley re-do mine (will probably fit in with the contest better). Interesting way to decide who the winner will be. I'm gong to change up my water-mark a bit just for fun, and to make it a bit bigger.

    Edit: Even though we have another month to do this, I'm going to get my entry done now while I hae the time (school starts u agian next Monday). I think I've now got a chance (this new bot-mode is a lot better than the old one). I'm going to wait and do the new alt-mode tommorow. I'm thinking about posting the old entry in a new thread, though I'll probably wait for the contest to end.

    Why make it bigger? Are we all thinking of a different kind of watermark? Either way, it doesn't sound too vital.
