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.

More Generations News
The mystery of the ruined Lost Light is solved! But when a way is found to restore things to normal, what will be the price to bring everything back? "The Road Not Taken", More Than Meets The Eye 33, written by James Roberts, pencils by Alex Milne, with inks by Brian Schearer and John Wycough, and colors by Joana Lafuente. Read the full review!
IDW has provided the full preview for this month's issue of More Than Meets The Eye. This one is unusually spoily as to the nature of what's been going on during this storyline, so please be aware before clicking through to read these preview pages if you want to wait and have the mystery revealed when the full issue hits shops this Wednesday!
Finally, Previews has lineart-stage pages from the first issue of the Angry Birds/Transformers crossover miniseries. Not as far along as the other early looks, this still shows a taste of what the visual end of this book is about, presumably from the portion of the book not illustrated by Livio Ramondelli. Keep reading to see all three pages.
Previews has been given three pages from the first issue of the upcoming Drift focused miniseries, Empire of Stone. Much like the Transformers 35 preview, no dialogue has been added to this, letting you see the full page art in an otherwise finished, colored state. If you've been looking for the return of Drift since his wrongful dismissal from the Lost Light last year, this may be the title for you when it ships later this year!
The book formerly subtitled Robots in Disguise is set to become simply The Transformers, and so we have via a Previews feature article three pages from the upcoming issue 35 which, while having no dialogue added yet, show an operation over Earth seemingly overseen by Prowl. This issue is due to hit in mid-November, so we still have a while before proper previews hit, but for now enjoy the clean art!
