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.

Summer is fast approaching, and there's no better proof of that than early samples of the year's Titan Class figure starting to get out. We've got a quick video tonight showing off some of the basics of Trypticon's dinosaur mode, including a little of the leg articulation and deployable weapons, plus a transformation demo of Full Tilt. We were already expecting Trypticon to start hitting by July, and seeing finished production pieces like this just reinforces that idea. Click through to watch the video, embedded below.
After seeing Nick Roche's cover used for most of the solicitations and early advertisements for Lost Light #6, now we have a look at Jack Lawrence's cover, posted by Lawrence himself! As he describes it, "It's got Megatron on it somewhere." And he sure looks decisively unhappy at that. Will Megatron's vow not to fight be tested again in the coming issue? We'll find out soon enough, but for now keep reading to check out the cover!
Weibo user NOTRAB has posted a photo showing The Last Knight Premier Barricade, and a red and blue redeco of Titans Return Kup we haven't seen before. A long while back now, otherwise credible rumors pointed to the Targetmaster Crosshairs being the reuse of the Kup mold, and we're leaning toward that as the identity of this piece. But there's also the possibility of an Orion Pax, as the pre-Optimus Prime character has been represented on a Kup mold in the past, and the red arms and what would be mostly blue legs does work toward a very Optimus color layout. Keep reading for more details and the photo.
On pre-war Cybertron and present-day Earth, the battle is over. But for how long? And who will be the first one to take up arms? "The Next Day/And The Next" is written by John Barber with art by Priscilla Tramontano. Click here to read the review!
The solicits for this coming August are out, just a little bit early via Forces of Geek, and we have three Transformers-relevant titles to expect. Sadly not present on this list is Till All Are One, but we do have Lost Light #9, Optimus Prime #10, and the second installment of the five part miniseries Rom vs Transformers: Shining Armor. We got the blurbs and some cover image preview, which you can find in the full article below.
