Transformers Concepts Aligned Universe Jazz Artwork
Jack - 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.

Astrotrain is just Sentinel Prime. Or actually Sentinel Prime was more or less a "pretool" of Astrotrain. And while the War Train mode might not be our train of choice, it's a pretty solid triple-changer. And Darkmoon is probably the best round-headed Titan Master so far!

TFW2005 user Rastafarian has posted photographic proof of finding Titans Return Brainstorm in a brick-and-mortar store! ...except it was found at Walmart, not Walgreens where it is supposed to be an exclusive. Odds are very good this is just a mistake. Shipments go to the wrong places sometimes. But the good news is, that means that Brainstorm is likely shipping to Walgreens now, so hopefully it will work its way through the pharmacy franchise's supply chain and get to us shortly. Keep reading to see the photo!
The fifth webisode of Machinima's Combiner Wars cartoon debuted today, and in support of that they've partnered with stop motion artist counter656 to have a special video produced. The short depicts a battle between Devastator and Windblade, played out using Transformers Generations toys - and undoubtedly a great deal of time and labor by counter656! The video also features a short clip of the Combiner Wars cartoon itself ...of a scene that hasn't actually properly debuted yet! We have the video embedded below, and you'll definitely want to check it out.
James Raiz - who has worked on IDW's Transformers himself - has conducted an interview with More Than Meets The Eye's Alex Milne! In it Milne talks about his current projects, his visit to a comics con in Indonesia in October, and his history as a comics artist dating all the way back to Dreamwave. Keep reading to see!
This week's episode of Combiner Wars is up on go90 for US viewers! Titled "Homecoming," this episode largely represents a return to form after last week mixed things up a bit. Keep reading for a link to go90!
