Starscream and Megatron by Atalan Starscream and Megatron by Atalan
Note: Full size is 2000px wide, hit download to get it.

Starscream with Megatron in hand. Funny how Megatron frequently hands himself over in gun form to the Decepticon he trusts least...

Technical notes: Used Inkscape (open source software) for the line work, Photoshop for colours. First attempt at tracing a Transformers image. Things I have learned: the original animation for this series cannot be trusted as far as you can kick it for perspective, proportion or basic consistency. Am not too happy with his wonky left arm-gun, which I traced faithfully and only realised later was not actually straight. Coincidentally the right one (which I re-drew from scratch to sort out whacked-out proportions) is fine...

Use: This is a vector-trace of this image from the original Transformers cartoon series. Vector-tracing is a method of reproducing original, poor quality images from cartoons/anime screenshots and promotional material, resulting in a huge, flawless jpg (or PNG in this case) that can be resized and edited for backgrounds, layouts etc.

Although tracing images requires (a LOT of) time and effort, this is NOT fan art and therefore I consider it free-use - please DO take and turn into backgrounds, layouts, whatever - that's what it's for! Credit is nice, but not strictly required. :)
