this is the design i came up with for Skids
i had a lot of fun creating this guy, and he's easily becoming one of my favourite transformer comic characters :D

Neat! I especially like the shoulders and legs. Smooth design, and it's a pretty detail the fact that his Autobot insignia is over where a human heart would be. Sure, the insignia in the middle of the chest is very Superman-y, but like this... it gives a different feeling. (: :heart:

I'm really liking these psuedo-movie designs! It's a nice approach! :thumbsup:

Which do you design first, the alt-mode or the bot form? (nice work, I can't wait to read mtmte 2)

Actually Sorry, It was answered before In the previous comments. Again, nice job though :D

very nice sketches i wish i could sketch like this. Did you use toy models of these as references?

i looked at original toy to see what skids looked like originally, then i went from there.
i first designed his head, then the altmode, then the robot mode.

Dammit i missed issue one. which is a shame because i started to read RID and the Infestation2 story lines.

Lot better looking than the original G1 toy. Love your work. Is there any way I could get the high res image to practice inking and coloring??? stourangeau@earthlink.net

No problem actually I would love to practice on any of your work. I have been practicing on Guido's art the last couple of days. I am looking for what ever feedback I can get. Thanks in advance.
