... Is A Dead Robot, for the fic of the same name. Commission piece for ... I don't remember if she's on DevArt. If she is, she'll probably drop by. Anyway, the half-naked woman is Circuit-Breaker from the Marvel TF comics. The ghost-jet behind her is Duskwing, who started ( and ended ) his life in this picture. But since I tossed him away, Dragoness picked him up, dusted him off, and took him home. Here, he and Circuit-Breaker are escaping from a Cobra base.

Figures were drawn seperately - pencilled, inked, scanned, coloured in Photoshop. The background is all Photoshop.

Very nice overall. Circuit Breaker's 'foil-runs' are quite close to their proper arrangement in the comic; it's obvious that you actually researched the pattern rather than just drawing random lines over her (a pet peeve of mine).

As much as I love the coloring, though, your on-robot shinies are almost getting to the point where they're starting to distract. I dunno. May just be me, as no one else seems to have that problem.

*has that problem, but just assumed they were a part of the ghost effect*

In this case, the twinklies were added because of the ghost thing. I've been trying to cut back on shine on characters that aren't ghosts or Vector Prime. Not easy - shinies are fun.

I was kind of surprised there was a specific way Circuit-Breaker's outfit looked. I'd never noticed until I put together a reference sheet for her. I simplified it a bit but tried to generally stick with it.

I remember her, she's the lady who got nearly killed when Shockwave blasted her workplace ( a power station, if I'm right, correct me if I'm wrong)

*Squees again!*

I've been drooling over this piece ever since Wayward finished it. Much love!

This is indeed a scene from my story, The Only Good Robot is a Dead Robot, and I think you'll find Circuit Breaker a bit more sympathetic in this one, as she's forced to re-think a few of her assumptions.

Said story is actually my third story about Duskwing... the previous two are also on FF.net, and I linked them in my comment on the other picture (the one linked above).

Wow - haven't seen Miss Beller for a long time. I wonder if she ever recovered from her trip to Cybertron?

Nice pic - I like the colouring particularly :)
