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.

How do you like the Aligned Universe Jazz design?

As of writing, the brief voting period in the 2018 Transformers fan vote event is nearly over with. While we await the results of the choice of one of three Deluxe VS sets to be released next year (from which Impactor vs Mirage appeared to be taking a lead at one point), Hasbro has released via Facebook a post clearing up some small details, such as the incorrect identification of Impactor as a Decepticon in the sample art. For the most part it doesn't offer much, but one of the answers actually does give us something to work from. Keep reading to find out what!
Nick Roche, writer and artist of Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers, has announced that he will be finishing his Wreckers story in a one-shot to be titled Requiem of the Wreckers! Reuniting with colorist Josh Burcham, Roche has also announced that fellow Transformers artists Guido Guidi and Geoff Senior will also be contributing to the book! Keep reading to see the teaser image and announcement.
The official Transformers pages on Facebook and Instragam have posted a video announcing the new Fan Vote for 2018! Using the hashtags in this article's title on either of those sites and those sites only, you can vote for one of three two-packs to come in 2019's first chapter in the War For Cybertron trilogy: Spinister vs. Wheeljack, Impactor vs. Mirage, or Needlenose vs. Tracks! Keep reading to see the video.
Hasbro's people said during Toy Fair they have exclusives planned for Generations for this year, though they didn't reveal any specifics. Blast Off and Repugnus had both been discovered via leaked materials and distributor information, but it looks like at least one more figure may be joining their Special Edition ranks this year. Amazon.ca has a listing page for Deluxe Counterpunch, and while the currently attached price and some of the product info are a bit wacky, the associated product code makes sense compared to Repugnus and Blast Off. So what could we be looking at? Keep reading for another round of speculation!
We're capping this year's Toy Fair 2018 with the official images Power of the Primes Transformers action figures shown at this years show.
