Like Nothing on Earth by ukitakumuki Like Nothing on Earth by ukitakumuki
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.

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.

Dude, THIS is the style of art/robot that should be used in a reboot of the live action films. It's like G1 meets 2012. Absolutely love it.

Actually, I can add something else. I like how the 20mm cannon and ammo are exposed. Reminds us how deadly those guys can be up in the sky.

I wasn't sure I liked it that much at first, but the longer I stared at it, the longer I liked the originality you brought to it, and the wittiness of the RDAF XD. The art was unquestionably amazing so it was only a matter of personal preference. But it made me grin a lot as I drifted back to this picture over today so thanks! :3

Impressive how he strides among the fellow Seekers. Let's admit it, he can be a real jerk and sometimes a buffoon but, along with Megatron and Optimus Prime, I think he's the only 'bot capable of exuding such a... uhm... regal posture? You caught that perfectly! :love:
