Photocomic: The Vanity of a Name

Motto: "All I have to be is exceptional."

In preparation for my promotion from the rank of Vehicon to something with greater life expectancy, I wanted to remember these guys I've become so fond of. This is my first attempt at a photocomic, and any constructive criticism would be appreciated.

This is the first part of three. I hope you enjoy it.

I refuse to read it until you paste it on the forums. [-(

Seriously though, just put the URLs in [IMG] tags!

Good to see some more photocomic action around here.

Much appreciated, thanks. ;)

I liked it! Did you take any of the photos, or did you use found ones?

A tip I do have: don't use too much text, it gets distracting and difficult to read (and blue on purple is almost illegible).

Waiting for the next installment. :D

I took the photos with the grainy quality. Still working on getting that right.

Page two was a bit rushed, because I was scrambling to get this done by post #400, so I just went with a group shot I found online. The pics of 513113 underground and interacting with Jackie, Megs, Sounds, and Screamer were mine. It took forever to get Screamer to facepalm correctly.

Hopefully I'll get the next one done next week, depending on work. Hopefully I'll be finished before you post the next creative roundup.

You're already in it, don't worry. ;)

As for the photos, use more lighting. That's my first suggestion.
Lighter backgrounds also help (although I don't actually have any myself, and prefer my red swirly walls anyway :P ).

Love the writing! I like the way you're bringing more depth to what the vehicons are and what they are about. I think this would make an awesome TF: Prime episode.

Good job!

Sorry it's taken me so long to update, but my work schedule's been a lot heavier than usual, and I was tinkering with the comic's format, ultimately deciding to use a single image per panel. This throws out my original plan of updating with six pages at a time, but screw it, it looks better this way.

This update includes a guest appearance by a convention exclusive toy!

Many thanks to everyone who provided their praise and suggestions. One more update to go, hopefully sooner rather than later!

He died with a name.

Let his spark join the Matrix, the greatest of Cybertron.
