Optimus Prime reaches out

Well nog, another Optimus Prime!

Once again started with pencil and paper. Then I digitalized it and chucked it into Flash (coz I'm a mess with lines in Photoshop). I saved it as a png with a transparent background and then chucked it into photoshop.

What I did next, was make a layer beneath it and now I could select each bit in the line layer and colour it in the other, lower layer.

The importing messed up the lines a bit though, it made the lines a bit thin and transparent grey. So I made another layer and put that beneath the line and colour layer and filled it up with black so it would fill in whatever was missing.

I also made a layer all the way at the bottom to put all the colours in that I used so I could easily go back to all the colours I used before.

As a finishing touch, I made a layer on the top and dit all the lighting there.

This is how this illustration was born! :D

Hope you all like it! ^^
