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.

The Allspark has chosen to further distribute confidential Hasbro design materials by obtaining the color guide sheet and uncolored package art linework for Titans return Deluxe Hot Rod from a source they refuse to identify. Expected in the 2017 product assortments, Hot Rod shows a mix of different design inspirations, from movie, to Animated, and maybe a little IDW. Also notable are that the legs and lower torso even seem to resemble Cyclonus somewhat, creating some question where a retool of this design might go. We have the images mirrored, so keep reading to see!
We have a few new photos of a loose sample of Titans Return Blaster tonight, giving us a new look at the figure, expected to be released soon. Among the new images is a shot of an apparent storage space for the Titan Master's robot mode, and we have a decent look atnthe Titan Master's head mode without the helmet flipped over it, serving to prove RAC's theory that the circulating test shot features an alternate face sculpt from the regular release. Keep reading to see all the photos!

In any event, good old Fort Max is welcome for sleepovers here are TFormers, any time!
