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.

Following the reveal yesterday of the Titans Return Brainstorm robot mode, or half of it, at least. We have new look at the new Transformers Combiner Wars figure Brainstorm, in vehicle mode that cements it being a retool of the previously leaked Blurr figure. Read on for the full look below and a comparison we made with the Blurr toy photos to help show what's changed.
Earlier today we posted yet another incremental leak from that same guy, this one purporting to be a rumored Titans Return Brainstorm. RAC decided to take a closer look, and he found something important. Keep reading for the capper on the Brainstorm leak.
We're rapidly approaching Toy Fair time, and the sources of the various cropped, modified photos and art pieces must be aware of this since we're getting something of a blowout of everything they've been holding back. The newest is a lower body shot of a robot that seems to share details with the previously seen Blurr, but in colors that could be consistent with Brainstorm. A Brainstorm recolor/retool of Blurr was rumored some time ago. Maybe this is confirmation? Keep reading and check it out.
UPDATED with better pictures from AmiAmi: Finally! After an extended hype cycle with blurry grayscale photos, then clear grayscale photos, then blurry color photos, we're finally to the all-important clear color photos part of the game. UW07 Bruticus features the animation-style coloration to its chestplate, and this is our best look yet at shuttle Blast Off! Interestingly Brawl and Swindle have appendage weapons that match their bodies, not a generic silver to match the animation as well. Keep reading to see for yourself!
The Lost Light is on lockdown. The crazed mnemosurgeon Sunder is on the loose, and the only thing standing between him and his intended victim Skids are a handful of Autobots who intend to stop him - or, like Tailgate, don't know what's going on... 'Speak, Memory!' Part 2 is written by James Roberts with art by Hayato Sakamoto (coordination by Phase6) and colors by Joana Lafuente. Click here to continue to the review!
