I still haven't been able to watch any of the new episodes of the most recent season... :'c

Ok, the body is nearly flawless. But his arm in the background is a bit off. But you got his front arm perfect. His hand could use some improvement, but there is always room for that. The shoulder brings out my fan girl-ness. X) it is beautifully executed and VERY accurate. Mid body, might I say I would honestly believe that you were one of the artists who draw the autobots/decepticons. His head is, slightly oddly shaded and a bit, well lumpy or oblong is the best way to put it. But that is only the top. His eyebrows are dead on, and a feature I love about Ratchet. His eyes are absolutely wonderful and I melt in those light blue glowing eyes. And, how do you draw the autobot symbol so well?
Now the shading, oh the shading. It is beautiful and although a flaw here and there, your shading skills are absolutely positively amazing! The green glow of the synthetic energon (aka synthian) shining against Ratchet's metallic shell. And might I say beautiful execution of the light source and its shading.
Over all, I love how you were so accurate but yet you made it your own. You really captured Ratchet's personality, and the shading sets the mood so secrecy and nervousness. (I'm pretty sure that's what you were going for....?)
This is a master piece and I will be sure to watch you for more!
Methinks Ratchet has a problem...
Oh god, this is gorgeous... LOVE Ratchet!! Makes me think of episode 22, I just watched it a couple of days ago! That episode was a powerful one indeed, and in several ways, too.
I like how the darker neutral background brings out Ratchet's brighter color scheme (or "paint job", of you will ^^), though I also like how some of him is shrouded in shadow as well. Very fitting for this. And I love how he looks like he has conflicted feelings, wondering if he's doing the right thing to help his dear friends and comrades... or if what he will do will lead him astray.
Stunning work! Love it. He even almost has a majestic quality here.
Especially because Ratchet is my favorite
the details, shading and the angle is all awesome to me. I love your artwork long with many other TF artists
TFP robots look more plastic than metallic, so I really like how you copied that look
Don't drink that Ratchet!
You did wonders with him! The pose, the lay of his chest plating and shoulder armor! It's very, very well done; one of the best pieces of Ratchet fan art I've seen in a while.
Maybe in a few months when I have a better grip on perspective and have a bit more time to myself, I'll try and touch-up the portions of him I find a bit too sketchy. :T
I'm actually glad you decided to put it up, rather than let it eat at you, even though you wish you could have done more. I know that feeling all too well, but I agree that it's sometimes important tot just move on to the next piece.
Best of luck to you. I hope you never stop learning and creating, because your stuff is already amazing.
I send all the encouragement I can muster!
Thank you! I really appreciate that. Your words have made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, haha. Thank you a million times over, and I wish the same for you! May your artist journey be a fantastic one.
I really appreciate your time tonight. You're really taught me a good lesson. And you've made me feel like I can make a difference, even with only a few typed words of encouragement. So thank you. And rock on. Yes, there is more to learn. But don't forget that you've got some GORGEOUS art to your credit already. May you never stop creating and loving it.
I send you love and support via emoticons:
Yes, thank you though for your words of encouragement. I really do appreciate it, and I think artists, of any level, appreciate kind words like that. It really does help. c: So no, THANK YOU. <3
Hope you have a great evening!
