Transformers Concepts Aligned Universe Jazz Artwork
By Jack on Thursday, December 13, 2012
Transformers concept artist Emiliano Santalucia has shared some insights on his work with the fans about the Aligned Universe Jazz character design. Learn about this design that is based on a blend of G1 Elements, TF Animated style and proportions and movie elements as well as the process for rendering the figure from sketch to final drawing on his BLOG at santalux.blogspot.ca
But I also didn't want to just repost the same image, so I decided to also include the Alternate Mode and a glimpse of the process for these illustrations, a process I later refined to go quicker and accomplish scary amounts of work like the TF pop-up book. So, there are some differences from what I did back then and what I do now. But the principle is the same: on a refined enough sketch, I create very precise flats that will help me in selecting areas while rendering. I copy the layer and reflat with right colors, then copy the layer again two more times. I set the top one to Color Burn with 50% opacity and the one below is set to Colorize. The first copy is then converted to just grayscale and then rendered with an airbrush in various modes. Between the rendered layer and the color layers, I add a texture layer I created with custom brushes. There are a few extra steps here and there, but this is the basic idea.

An individual who reports attending Nuremberg Toy Fair today has come forward with their account of some of the design details for Generations Devastator. The report offers details not seen in the first surreptitious photo that have since been confirmed with newer telephotography, but as the individual has chosen to remain anonymous we won't quite say yet that everything should be considered fully accurate.

With our first illicit look at Generations Titan Class Combiner Wars Devastator (henceforth referred to as "Devastator") from Germany's Toy Fair in Nuremberg, we can see just enough to find that, hey, it sure looks like Devastator!

Autobase Aichi has posted a pair of blurry, fleeting images from German Toy Fair of Combiner Wars Devastator! There's not much else to be said except that he does look like Devastator and does appear, judging by the Silverbolt in the background, to be larger than Superion. Check it out!
