TFP - Headache by pika TFP - Headache by pika
edit: For a thousandth time: This is NOT a screenshot! :lol:


OMFGZ YES! I CAN DO ROBOTS! :love: :love: :love: :love:

*sigh* 3 days work, and my shoulders, neck, hand, butt, legs and eyes can feel it too :nirvana:

Story goes like this: I FELL IN LOVE!!!!!111 AAAAAAAAAH! *fan girl scream*


Krhm. *calms down*


My man found a new Transformers TV series called "Transformers Prime". After I watched the first episode I was totally sold to it. The animation, character designs, voice acting.. about everything was just so :heart: I couldn't resist my urge to draw fan art.

This fellow here is Soundwave, having a headache for having to stalk Starscream with Laserbeak .. minicon Ratbat? (can correct me) and listen his idiotic ramblings and possibly prevent stupid things from happening.

First I was doubting my patience over the project I'd take, but luckily I got talked into it pretty easily. In the end I can say: WAS SO WORTH IT! I'm happy with the end result, even after I had to fix so many mistakes and had hard time with preferences.


*deep sigh* :heart:

I can't even....this is too good for words..you actually had me fooled for a second and I thought this was a screenshot. The details are just on point and the coloring is just amazing. The video was really cool to look at as well. I always imagined how he reacts behind the scenes having to deal with Starscream and the others all day long XD

Why thanks you. ;) I think I've unintentionally fooled quite many with this picture! But I can tell you one thing; I have quite a lot of mistakes, albeit small, on Soundwave. I didn't understand his design so well back then. ;)

He surely can facepalm! Can't possibly act all cool 24/7 except in front of everyone? XD

Well I thought it was still pretty good, definitely not like how I drew him the first few times.

Haha yes, not even someone as cool as Soundwave can be cool all the time XD

I think I got a bit of a head ache when I just kept hunting first for the screenshots, then staring at them, trying to figure out how the heck his design worked. :fear: I can tell you; it wasn't the easiest task available!!! How long did you spend with your first drawn Soundwave? :la:

I believe I had him traditionally drawn, probably took me an hour or two, not too long :happybounce:

Holy hell I was thought this is a screenshot!! >3< But then I looked down the description "THIS IS NOT A SCREENSHOT", me like the world is getting darker than ever xD and I continued fall off the chair because you said that you drew this. DREW. THIS. :ohmygod:

*screams in fangirling moment* OH MY GAWD YOU ARE KIDDING ME?? YOU DONE THIS IN ONLY 3 DAYS? 3 DAYS?? :omg: :0
WHAT A PRECIOUS!! :heart: :heart: :love: This is the best TF art I ever seen! <33// ('cause it made me believed it's a screenshot xD)

Also, the pic totally worth the +favs! :la: I like it so much! :la:
(shiet I swear you dA, why don't you make a +fav 100times button?) Keep up the great job! >w< :heart:

I bow down for your artworks, Pika :giggle:

Hahahahah you silly you! XD Yeah, I actually drew this. I have the lineart somewhere and even the actual event file is still intact. :'D I just need to grab the video somehow and toss into youtube because livestream deletes videos~ :faint:

Three days nonstop is pretty long time don't you think! :icongrinstareplz:

What I can think of why people think it looks like a screenshot is because the colors almost exact same as in the show itself. I handpicked the colors from a screenshot so THAT might explain it a lot. ;D But there is also the fact that the background is blurred. (ps. it looks like crap without blur effect so LOL at that too haha) 

Favs? Right, oh, 1.3k favs. Haha... o_o;;; Oh well, I guess the pictures is so old it has had all the time to collect those. XDDDD (You know it looks silly when you bow to an artwork? :heart: But it's okay! I do it too and look as silly and still love doing it muahhhahhahah)

I will shoot you with a cannon that uses rainbows and candies and sugar as ammo! PEW PEW! (and don't forget the unicrons! Unicorns?!?)

Hehe, thanks! I think it's the colors that does the screenshot illusion, because they're dark and inside the Nemesis. :) I am not sure, since I can't remember how I exactly picked the colors, but I think I might have had a few screenshots with me to assist with the colors. ^^

Soundwave is my favorite character as well from Prime, and ... awwwwwww. :love:

Thanks!

Lemme see how I can pinpoint stuff... ;P First I drew the lines with pencil looking at references for hours and hours to understand how Soundwave's design was done! Second I scanned the image with a scanner and cleaned it up with all the dirt that got caught into it. Third.. I COLORED IT! Trolololol!

Ehm, more precisely I used the coloring knowledge I've acquired over the years, for example how shapes reflect light and cast shadows and how direct and ambient light works. I also used the knowledge I've learned using OpenCanvas and watercolor brush tool and how it blends colors that I've chosen to create the atmosphere.

I started with the background to create it something from a scifi-scene, not exactly like that on board of the Nemesis but something similar. When I finished background, I used blur effect on it to create the dimensional effect that the character, Soundwave in this case, was on the focus and background was off the focus.

Anything else I could write? :D

He looks like he needs some Tylenol, a nice warm oil bath, and peace and quiet for a couple of hours. Love how you drew him. :D (Big Grin)

Thanksieeees! If Tylenol works on Cybertronians, I think he needs to devour QUITE A BIG LOAD OF PILLS to make it less painful. @.@;

Cannot believe I have not commented on this yet... But a very, very well done piece, I must say! I can see that you put a lot of work into not only Soundwave, but the background looks very nice, as well, without taking focus away from Soundwave himself. 
Again, a very well-done piece~
