Step 4, Finish That Inking by Charger426 Step 4, Finish That Inking by Charger426
Ok now, here is the final step to making a basic Transformer pic. After you have gone over all the lines you want to keep in ink, begin to erase, erase, erase (hate this part, a lot of work).
You should be left with the above pick. Nice enough on its own, but it doesn't jump out at you.
What you need to do is out line the major structures or body parts (like leg or chest). Do this with a pen that flows heavier or a thin marker. Not to thick 'cause you may loose some detail. Do not over do your heavy lines, keep to only major parts otherwise you'll be left with a pic full of heavy lines that doesn't jump out at you, but rather confuse you. It should look like the bottom pic. Feel free to add seams, dents, scratches, or dots for rivets and such with your thinner pen.
If you want review:
Part one: Blocked out (Basic Shapes)[link]
Part Two: Details (sketch out your character) [link]
Part Three: Clean up & Ink (pretty explanatory :) ) [link]

Thanks! I appreciate you saying so but probably won't tho'. This was just a simple demo pose to help some friends out to try and draw TF's. Prime's kinda static and frozen here.

Okay, mine didn't come out NEARLY as good as these did (yes, of course I tried--you put out the effort, so I figured, so could I). Which goes to prove that this is part lots of practice, and part talent. The details really add to end piece. I think that might take an experienced eye. This was a great study though--thank you for doing this.

I keep threatening to put up my old stuff. I will when I get some time. I didn't always draw like this. You have to start somewhere and just keep doing it. If the 3-D angle is too much, you could do a 2-D view, like you are facing Prime.

Actually, I did--10 years ago. Yes I've been trying even LONGER--everyone in my family can draw but me. But on the positive side, I'm the only one who can do a tranny change and understood when we watched the Micheal Bay movie, that the void of space is WAAAAY colder than the stuff they hit Bumble Bee with. So I suppose I can live with lacking ANY artistic genes.
