another commission i'm currently working on at the moment.
this time its of the mighty leader of the decepticons :)
i had fun drawing this picture. i don't get a lot of the classic megatron to draw. i did add a few little touches of my own, but basically its dreamwave megatron :)
man, there are days i miss dreamwave :)
well, back to work

Your work is "just lovely" I am "just" getting back into using markers myself, like watercolours. Good job on the Jet-fire as well.

i was wondering... are these hand drawn lines? or do you draw the lines in a program? just wondering, no dis respect intended, and another question... is it a trend to leave transformers drawings with no cross hatching or shadows? i'm asking it, cuz i usually use some shadows when i draw them.

there all hand drawn lines. i use a ruler for some of them, but most are by hand.
as for shadows, it all depends for the look your going for. i usually like a very clean look so i keep any hatching to a minimal.

The differences between the various incarnations of these characters is part of what makes Transformers so much fun. Ahhh, variety!

Sleek work, as always.

Question: What helps you think through robot and mechanical design? I find machinery very hard to picture in my head, as most of what I draw is heavily organic. I am curious about how artists like you seem to be able to do mechanically-oriented drawing with such ease.

i'm not sure. thats such a hard question to answer because i don't think there is a right answer for me. it's just something i like doing and don't have any real trouble doing either. i guess i just have an eye for the technical stuff. thats probably why i took technical and scientific illustration when i was in college.
