Decepticons_color by LivioRamondelli Decepticons_color by LivioRamondelli
With this one, I wanted to do a semi-monochromatic painting with mainly the various lights on the robots being the colored areas. When you put a bunch of Transformers into one scene with all their various colors it can look pretty tacky pretty quickly. But I did want to do a colored group shot, so I thought this was a decent solution.

Beautifully drawn, and I especially love how Devastator is faded, as if he's in the distance, but still looks like the size of a skyscraper. Thrust and Blitzwing look incredibly menacing with the shadows obscuring them, and the poses you can see are incredibly dynamic and full of character. My one gripe is that Starscream is obscured by Megatron and Shockwave, which is unfortunate because it would have been so fitting to see Starscream trying to shoot Megatron in the back.

Thanks for the kind words! Really appreciate it.  And yeah, I do regret that Starscream is a bit cropped out here. But then, he IS lurking in the background..

That works, too... He's taking a page from the Starscreams of TF:Prime and the Movie-verse, and being more subtle about his leadership ambitions.

no words can express how bad-ass your talent is...

Thankyou!

It's drawn in pencil first, scanned, and colored with Photoshop. As for tips..man, I continue to learn everyday. I'd say study lighting and colors, and draw as often as possible. You get better by doing it often.

I would have expected Megatron to be up front; like he's leading his troops into battle. But having Soundwave in the front is cool too. This picture is AMAZING. I like how more fine details disappear as you look farther back (and up) toward the picture, adding SO much depth to it. The colors aren't as vibrant as seen in other Transformers media, but this dirty appearance just works. It's probably the nostalgia talking, but I will say this "dirt" style is a lot more cool to look at than in the recent films. Admittedly though, the color scheme you went with does seem to cause some of the robots to "blend in" if you will. What I mean by that is that recognizing them mostly comes from their body shape, which can be an issue when it comes to the Seekers. I'm pretty sure that is Starscream standing next to Megatron and Shockwave due to his high-ranking position in the Decepticon ranks. However, farther above Starscream's head, I can't tell if that is Thundercracker or Skywarp. On a more positive note however, you did a fantastic job of making the robots look BIG...REALLY BIG. Devastator in particular looks absolutely gargantuan compared to his other Decepticon brethren. It's also nice to see some of the lesser used Decepticon factions used; talking about the Insecticons here. Even though they only played it episode by episode with the Insecticons (bringing them in at times, then almost completely forgetting about them for an extended period of time), they were still significant and deadly Decepticons. If it wasn't clear already, I LOVE this picture. If I were to rate this...I'd give it a 9/10; has good proportions, depth, shading and shadows, but the relatively dirty color scheme (while catchy) can make it a little tough to pick out individual look-alike Decepticons.
