UPDATE: Put my evening into this, remade it! Hurrah.

Had a G1 Transformers vibe today :)

Once again i snook myself and start a test paintover on a lowres jpeg. As usual i forget and i put in a few hours. I zoom in to touch up and it hits me. Niiice. I give up on further detailling quite soon thereafter.

I know if i were to work doubly hard to rework the piece at high res, it might be quite similiar.. but that's really for another day. :|

Those are Blk 52+ F16s btw, loosely reffed so clearly lots of shit is totally whack, but yeah, the telltale conformal fuel tanks are there :p so smexy.

I almost made Screamer into an F16.. and swap out his intakes for the fuel pods.. but thought better of him and kept him pretty canon, aside from the obvious change of flying colours. I did take lots of liberty with the ordnance :p Maybe in the final I can detail lots more stuff, maybe give him hardpoints and a few JDAMS?

Yes those are Thundercracker and Skywarp, minions forever! :thumbsup:

PS: RDAF stands for Royal Decepticon Air Force.. in my alternate future beloved Starscream gets his coronation and megadong never kills the bugger.

Woah. You not only made me faint at how well they are portrayed, but seriously this needs to be like in the movies! This is not only serious, but it's the art that makes you almost explode! You should do more like this! And YES it's the seekers! I, fucking. Love, you.

This is a very unique mix you have managed to establish with this, Live action with the amalgam of the cartoonish design the G1 show had when it came to how the characters look. Something the movies really could have gone for but still maintain the nostalgia of the G1 design with abit of realism to amp the change.

Such beautiful work.

thank you! I tried to make it as elegant without hopefully making it overly cheesy, hah

Well, you did a masterful job. I would love to have this as a poster over my desk.

I love the optimistic, proud feeling I get from looking at this. I can just picture it plastered on walls of bars in Cybertron. Amazing work!
