Starscream + Skyfire - Jupiter by WaywardInsecticon Starscream + Skyfire - Jupiter by WaywardInsecticon
Or somewhere out there.

Anyway, going in chronological order just happened to save the best for last. ;) Part Four of the four piece Redemption commission. Which I must remind you was written by two people who are not me - I was just commissioned for the illustrations ( but those of you who keep referring to it as my story apparently don't read these blurbs anyway, because I know I've mentioned this. )

Pencilled, inked, scanned, coloured in Photoshop. The light may be in front of the characters, but the camera is behind them, and that means it's BACKLIT! I like doing backlighting.

Also, I painted Jupiter with tablet and Photoshop ( from reference, of course. )

I would love to see what life was like for Starscream and Skyfire before things went bad. It would be great to see some nice moments between two old friends. I love this work.
I just wanna say thanks for the link, and this is well done, I love it

love the pic. one of my favorite fics too. wholeheartedly agree wif Ianam

I love the lighting. Yes, they made up in the fic. I kind of liked the idea of Starscream retaining his old friend for his own strange reasons, despite the faction gap, but that never happened in the canon. It just seems like a Screamer thing to do, though. He doesn't give up what's his -- not for war, not for Megatron, not for other people's concerns, and possibly not even because Skyfire wants it. Like it or not, he's 0wned.

In the thumbnail, I thought it was a photograph of Jupiter! :o It's clearly a painting, but you still did a very nice job with it.

Too bad Starscream deep down is an evil rustbucket who doesn't deserve a friend like Skyfire. ;P

Yay Jupiter! I just love those moons. *pokes one* It sets up the mood for the picture, I think. The perspective of seeing them from behind is awesome too. Well done. :D

Beautiful. Your painting of Jupiter is just "wow!"

(Also, I'm in awe of anyone who can not only draw Skyfire, but draw him from the back. I must've been a pain and a half to find references for that...)

Even then, I made te backpack a bit smaller to improve his articulation. The thrusters should be over his butt, but that would make it hard to sit. ;)
