:drool: ugh.....Whoa. I now officially ENVY you, so therefore I am putting this pic on my favorites list. I kinda figured this was Joe NG's linework, I recognize his style anywhere.
Is this the Beast Wars Neo Optimus? Oh..wait...I just answered my own question by reading comments from the other viewers. Nevermind.:blahblah:

Rockin' I've always liked the Big Convoy design and I like even more the wicked-titght colouring job you gave it. The Toyfair version was too bold--I like your softer, more cel-like colours and the snow-storm just adds to the ambience. Well done! *faves* I like it very much.

Oddly lately I have been manipulating the colors in a pic where they end up being slightly muted or tinted towards another color. Straight up normal colors just don't look right. XD

Thanks though!

Hey, that sounds kinda interesting. There's gotta be a middle ground in TF art between ultra-sharp colours and covering 'em in mud. :)

That looks so freaking, mind-blowingly awesome. Definitly one of (if not THE) best color jobs you've ever done IMO. And those weather effects you added are simply amazing. You've really been doing a spectacular job with the backgrounds/effects these past couple pictures you've done, and it really manages to bring the audience into the picture, rather then feel like we're just looking at a drawing on a comp screen.

Heh...so any chance we'll get to see do the ONE and ONLY thing that could possibly be better then this, and color this bad boy as TFU Nemesis Prime? Be a very nice contrasting piece, especially if he was like, in the firey pits of the inferno or something, as opposed to the snowy scene here.

Thanks! Hopefully all the background work is paying off.


As for Nemesis Prime. I have got something whipped up...just been too busy to post it. >.<

*jumps up and down excitedly* Well find time damnit! *Demands Nemesis Prime!*

And as for the background work, hell yeah it's paying off, heh. It's simply amazing and makes the characters feel a little more "real" when they're interacting with an environment like this.

Oh wow. Just.... wow. I look at the boxart on Nemesis Prime and feel pain. This helps me feel better. Gorgeous work overall, but especially on the bumpy parts like his trunk. He's about to build a Predacon snowbot just to knock it down.

Like he said, Big Convoy (Convoy being the japanese name for Prime) is from Beast Wars Neo, a line that was never released here.

[link] Here are all the toys from that line. Happy viewing. :3
