Over our assorted years in the TF fandom, we three Mods have come to recognize a number of typically used OC ideas and traits - cliches, really - that don’t seem to be going away. So, we wrote this CE article in the hopes that we could address a few of these cliches, and spread a little knowledge about them. There are a lot more cliches to Transformers OCs than are discussed in this article, but these are the biggest ones we Mods have seen and been shown. None of these are things you absolutely shouldn’t use for your OC, but you need to tread carefully and think twice when using them.
Update: A segment on Human-to-Cybertronians has been added.
Photomanipulation combining 3 separate images, one of an old chapel door from London, England, another of Bury Parish Church, and an African penguin. I would like to thank and dedicate this quirky piece to a couple very talented deviants and cherished friends, thank you for providing me with constant inspiration
This picture is also available for download at 3333 x 5000 px for a small premium of 50 points. Most everything else including my stock rules remain the same, except this premium download gives you access to a much larger version of the picture without watermark.
Included in the premium is a second image of the same scene without the penguin. A little bonus at no extra charge in case you may find more practical use for it
This tutorial is for Gimp, but would probably work in Photoshop too, no idea about any other programs though, sorry
In the last batch of lineart I made, I found out this technique, so I thought you might like me to share This is just a way to make an already made lineart pixelized so that MSPaint users can use it too
I hope this helps, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
A template for all fans of '' The Avengers '' (the movie and the game on Facebook). I had a lot of fun doing it. You can use it as you wish ! However, I'll only ask to put a link to my page. Thank you ^^ I hope you enjoy it ! =3
I needed matching Marvel logos for something, and then I was like 'Oh hey, I already spent the time making these, may as well share them.' So here, have some logos for all the various Marvel originals that bled into Avengers or hang out with them sometimes. For those not so *intimately* familiar with the verse, Wasp came from Antman comics, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver came from X-Men comics, Fury and the SHIELD label came from 'Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos', and Hawkeye and Black Widow came from Ironman.
And just so everybody is sure what they're looking at, from left to right: Row 1: Captain America, The Fantastic Four, Spider Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Submariner, X-Men, X-Caliber. Row 2: Thor, Ant Man/Giant Man, Doctor Strange, Shield/Sgt. Nick Fury, Dead Pool, The New Mutants, X-Force. Row 3: Iron Man, Dare Devil, The Avengers, The Power Pack, Cloak and Dagger, X-Factor, Generation X.
First of all, if you spot a typo on here, good for you. There's a lot of writing in here so the chances are there'll be one somewhere, no need to bother telling me about it. (Unless it's something really hilarious and then we can have a laugh xD)
Second, if you still don't get any of what I said, go look at this instead: [link]
Third, this is just how I draw, I'm not saying this is the "best" or only way to do it, there's a billion and one ways of drawing, I'm just explaining how I do things because people asked xD So I don't claim to be an expert or anything...
Well I finally got round to making this xD
Tutorial covers lineart, shading/highlights (or as my Art teacher would say, TONE) and some info about colouring as well...
Also I use a tablet, I'm not sure how much of this will work if you have a mouse, but I'll try and think of some stuff here:
Lineart: Maybe try using the erase tool to make the lineart thinner in some places? Won't have exactly the same effect but still xD
Shading: If you set the opacity of the eraser to something like 20-30% (I have it set to 40% even with tablet opacity pressure on) and then just like work away at the shading that might still work in a similar way...
Oh and I forgot to mention whenever I do shading I turn off the size-pressure thing and just use opacity, it annoys me otherwise xD
Oh and I often change the colour of the lineart by making a new layer with a colour and using the Screen mode, then merging down to the colour layer.
Oh and if you want to try this out, please draw yuor own picture instead of just copying mine... that's what someone did last time I made a tutorial I don't mind people trying to draw a similar image it's just when people copy the style and everything (which this tutorial is NOT about) then it's a bit mehhhh...
Anyways this is supposed to be to help find your own style of shading, you don't wanna just copy me cuz that'd be boring xD So as the song goes... you can go your own waaaaaay~
Oh and if you want to know how to do use something in GIMP (such as layers, certain tools, etc) then go look it up on google or something. There's enough tutorials already on how to do stuff like that xD
Well okay that's enough o' that.

I can't remember if someone sujjested her or if I was just like SIMPLE CHARACTER YAY xD
