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.

Surprising no one, except maybe that it's not Acid Storm or something first, DecepticusPrime has found a store inventory listing for a Leader Class Skywarp, completing the trio from Thundercracker and Starscream. At this point it's most likely going to coincide with the first wave of 2016 Combiner Wars product, though as early as Magnus has hit, it could surprise us. And while Starscream comes with the distinctive crown, there's no indication if Skywarp will have a flight of stairs to push other figures down.
Appropriately enough, Weibo user Starscream韋 has posted images of the upcoming Combiner Wars Leader-class Starscream! Starscream is a recolor of Thundercracker... who is himself a remold of Jetfire. But he's got a new hat! And it is crown-shaped. Keep reading to see Starscream!
A Weibo user has posted more new images of Combiner Wars Titan Devastator, and you may not be surprised at all to learn that previous Titan-class release Metroplex is still much taller than the Constructicon combiner. To some, it's probably a relief! Additional photos show off a few of the individual Constructicons as well - keep reading to see!
While we didn't get the anticipated images of the Windblade to finish the trio, we do have some looks at the Combiner Hunters-deco Arcee in new detail. With a slightly better look at the paint on the face, the real news is the revelation of remolded hands. This release at least will see normal 5mm compatible hands versus the slot-style seen originally. This of course lends better to carrying the Beast Hunters sword seen in the comic cover art, but may leave Arcee less able to use the original accessories. Click through and check it out.
RAC reviews the last of the Deluxe Protectobots, Streetwise! He's pretty slick in both his own modes, is fun to transform, and makes for okay limbs for Defensor. He also has a triple-barreled shotgun! Continue to the video review!
