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.

BotCon 2015 Transformers Convention News
More Generations News
Among the few sites still abiding by the preorder "street date" following Amazon's early posting, Target has activated their listing for Devastator this afternoon, coming in at the regular price of $149.99. With an estimated ship date of August 1, it's still probably not the quickest way to get Devastator who is now appearing in store at Toys R Us, but if it's anything like Metroplex, in-store support may be limited at other chains, leaving this a decent option. Click through for a link, and check out the review of the SDCC edition we posted earlier by clicking here!
Today we take a look at the new 2015 SDCC Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Devastator Special Edition Set from Hasbro. This exclusive will cost $179.99 and be available at Hasbro's booth #3213 at Comic-Con International in San Diego with a limited number available after the convention at HasbroToyShop.com.
Sick of toy-hunting and prefer a sure bet? ToysRUs has posted their preorder page for Combiner Wars Devastator! The massive Titan class figure will ship on July 29th, and the price is $149.99 USD. The page notes that it may qualify for free shipping... which may be worth noting if you're trying to decide between the Hasbro and TakaraTomy versions. The shipping on the more elbowed Unite Warriors edition will most likely not be free, whatever online retailer you're a patron of. Keep reading for a link to the preorder page!
Just up on the Transformers Official YouTube channel is a Combiner Wars Devastator Official Transformers Generations demo video. You have seen a lot of the figure already so this is going to be a recap of the figure with the official word on the toy's many figures and other features. Read on to watch the review and see more details now on the Combiner Wars Devastator Official Transformers Generations video.
Bow down to the King! Ever since Leader Thundercracker was revealed fans were waiting for the inevitable Starscream repaint. Finally in the twilight of the Combiner Wars 2015 line here it is, complete with crown. For those new to this Jetfire retool (like me) there's a new head, chest, weapons, and wings. For me the main selling point was the crown, I just love how a small piece of TF history has been able to hold on through the years. Definitely worth a pick up.
