Family Portrait by Ha-HeePrime Family Portrait by Ha-HeePrime
EDIT: SCANNED FOR MORE BETTER!

Yes, it's off-center. But I'm not gonna bother cropping it right now. Please forgive. And as always, the real one is better. The scanner had a hard time with colored pencils over marker. The real thing is a lot richer in color.

I love this picture so hard I cannot possibly convey the extent of my love.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to :icononiwanbashu: for letting me color this sketch: [link]

It just makes me SO DARN HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I gave Prime red hair like mine. Wanna make sumethin of it?



So yeah - can't you just see how this particular photo-shoot went?
Jazz: "All right, ya daft glitches... *holds up hideously ugly hand puppet* "Watch the ickyak!"
*FLASH* [everyone has that "Wait -- are we taking the picture now?" panicked look]
Jazz grumbles in frustration. "Smile. 3...2...1..."
*FLASH* [All three have that creepy-huge smile-for-the-camera face]
Jazz: "Aw, c'mon - ya can do better than that!" He looks into the viewfinder, and...
*FLASH* just as Megs thumps his hat onto Elita's head, and Prime cracks up*
*FLASH* Elita gives Megs bunny ears.
*FLASH* Elita knocks Prime's hat off. Megs point-lol's.
*FLASH* Prime steals Elita's glasses, attempts to look scholarly. Others lol.

...And so on...
This was the best picture to come out of the lot.




I apologize for the place(s) where my drawing is fail. (If you don't see it, I ain't showin' ya!!) I love the original sketch, but it had lots of unfinished bits! I confess I finally asked Wheeljack to help me with Prime's right hand.

Done with Prismacolor markers, and a loooooooot of colored pencils on top.

I don't own transformers. Or any humanized versions of them. But I do love and impersonate them!!!

It looks cool? (eep!) (artist fires rocket launcher)

Elita did come out a little bit cross-eyed. (I was wondering if anyone would spot that...) I did what I could to fix it, but there's only so much modification you can do when markers are involved!

So you get points for noticing the flaw..........
:mwahaha: :plotting:

PS: Your avatar pic Gives Me Infinite Joy!!!!!!!!!!

I love Warehouse 13! I just got into Eureka and Fargo is my favorite character. I was hoping you weren't gonna go all "you insulted my artwork; you must DIE!!:ninjabattle:"

Nah. A genuine critique is one of the most important things for any artist to receive -- much better than constant, blind praise. If we never get told where we need to improve, how will we get any better?

Yeah, but you don't wanna critique TOO harshly. I rather have a bland review than someone nitpicking every single fiber of your work.

Thank you very much for the compliment. I know you as a great human TF's artist, so your approval makes me feel very spiffy! :)

I really loved working on this picture. It was the first time (only time) I attempted flesh tones...

Prime! You colored that and I only now am seeing it. Wow, it looks really good. The shading on Optimus in particular. And I think red hair suits him ;)

Why are the berets different colors? Not sayin' they shouldn't be, just wondered.

I tried to subtly incorporate their robotty colors in their clothing. For a while, Megs's beret was gray. But that was way too boring, and actually unbalanced the picture. I could have gone with the maroon that's on his legs in bot-mode, but then he woulda been too similar to Prime. So I went with Official D'Con purple. Let's face it: The 'Con symbol is Megs's own personal symbol. And it actually worked really well to unify the color scheme of the whole thing.

One of these days, I'm gonna get this scanned in so you can see how it really looks.........

Glad you liked it! I :heart: this picture MUCH.

Yeah, I can see how a grey beret would have been a bit boring as you said. The purple is more interesting.

Wow, looking at it again I am also totally diggin' Megs' hair. NICE.

:D Thanks pal.
Megs is totally pretending that he doesn't care what you think of his hair... it is amusing to watch him try.

Yay! It's beauty-full. I like how you used their signature colors, but kept them subtle. And I am SO digging that beret. ...Must make blue wool beret...
