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:

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:

If Soundwave of all people is facepalming, then you know that Starscream failed epically.

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~
