How to.... The Transtopian guides.

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Yes we fro the seibertron.com staff are trying to improve the Transtopia community and are working on Transtopia newsletters. But we also want to encourage fresh new talent to the art community.
We want to do this by providing "How to ...." guides in the forums, while this thread acts as the "index page".
So we ask you the talented artists to help out the new blood.
Want to contribute? Well then just pick a topic you want to make a guide to and start working on it.
You can make guides to:
    -Drawing
    -Painting
    -3D rendering
    -2D/3D Animation
    -Kitbashing
    -Painting figures
    -Scratch building
    -ect...

The guides should contain an explanation in written form, step by step images and you must state which tools are necessary for the project.

Send your guide to this e-mail address:

Transtopia.Guide@gmx.de

We will pick out guides to make it into the newsletter and will try to archive them here.
Don't worry you will be credited for your work.

How to paint a Transformer in the style of Chuck Close.

I had a spare day at college a while back and did this.

1. Find a picture of your desired Transformer and then grid it.
Image

2. Get a canvas or a peice of paper masking taped to some board.

3. Grid said paper or canvas. There MUST be the same amount of squares as on the original gridded picture.

4. Paint the squares in block colour using a mix of the colours in the square on the original picture. For example- original pic- red and black your painting- very dark red.
The end result should be like a pixelated image.
Image

5. Now we add the detail, this is done by painting small shapes in the coloured squares to look like the corresponding square on the original pic. Close up its jibberish but back away and you should see it.

6. Fill in the back ground squares with more funny shapes.

7. Stand back and appriciate your work.
