Man, I am lovin' it! Great call on the theme this week, Cary! Some very emotional character pieces being displayed, the likes of which I can't say I've come across as far as Transformers is concerned.
Back at it again!

indeed.
I really enjoyed this weeks challenge, even though with my gear it was hard to get a decent zoom in b&w so I'm looking forward to going back to colour. still the portrait thing is fun so maybe the next challenge can keep working on that? maybe something about character portraits? recreating portraits from paintings or recreating coronations from paintings? is dat 2 complex or?

Thanks, I was a little worried about this one being a flop. It's been an exciting ride though! Let me throw a quick thanks out there for all the awesome submissions we had so far and I hope to see a few more before we close the door on this one.

I've enjoyed this challenge as well, quite a lot actually. We've had some great submissions. We've already had a recreate art theme a few weeks back. I've got a fun donated portrait idea from fellow Seibertronian Cobotron waiting on the shelf as well.

Portraits are fun; you need a lens that can get close enough and you have to remember to blow the dust off your robot buddies. I'm working with a couple lens that have some sever limits to how close I can get to small things. Considering the level up thread seems dead, this place seems as good as anywhere else to share tips and tricks to buff them photography skills.

I want to focus more on fresh fun ideas and camera techniques, rather than recreating other forms of media. This challenge still has about a day and a half left to go, so I'll mull it over. This thread is about having fun, snapping pictures and maybe if we're lucky, we'll learn something along the way. I'm always open to suggestions and criticism.

TFPC#7 Wrap Up

Postby no-one » Sun Nov 15, 2015 6:48 pm

That brings TFPC#7 to a close. We had some really awesome submissions. I was a little worried at first that this theme would be a miss, but it turned into one of my favorite challenges yet!

I pushed myself just a little out of my comfort zone and learned a little; I hope I wasn't the only one.

That was a lot of fun and as always, I want to thank everyone who participated :BOWDOWN:

And with one photo challenged closed that can only mean one thing...

Transformers Weekly Photo Challenge # 8: Toy Mash Up (Mixed Media)

Postby no-one » Sun Nov 15, 2015 7:34 pm

Howdy fellow Seibertronians and welcome to this week's Transformer photo challenge. This week's theme is a collab between Cobotron and myself.

Remember when we were just little tykes and all of our toys would just hang out together and we didn't have such strict shelving rules? Well this week's challenge is going to give us the opportunity to mix and match our toys again.

There are only two rules to this challenge; the picture(s) must feature a Transformer and must feature any other toy. That's right, I didn't say just action figures (they are of course welcomed). Let your imagination run wild! Any scenes or styles are welcomed.

Because the holidays are approaching and because this is a fairly open ended challenge; we are going to run this one for two weeks to give everyone plenty of time to participate. TFPC#8 will run from 11/15/15 to 11/29/15. Let's take our time and post some really fun stuff.

Submission post use TFPC #8 in the subject line. Non submitters, please feel free to join the conversation. Multiple submissions are welcomed and encouraged!

And remember to keep your browsers pointed to Seibertron.com for the latest Transformer news, the largest galleries and the most fun you can have this side of a space bridge.

TFPC#8.1: Swerve and the locals

Postby no-one » Tue Nov 17, 2015 7:39 am

I'm pretty excited for this challenge, I'm bursting with ideas. Unfortunately I'm away from my collection this week. So expect to see a lot of my favorite road dog, Swerve.

This entry straddles the line between photo challenge and my own personal series: On the road with Swerve.

Hey Susha I'm feeling it and I appreciate the comradery. Your well within the rules and feel free to post more.

Very clever actually and along the same lines as another post I'd like to make.

Nope. Even as a kid I kept my toylines seperate. The MotU stuff on one shelf, ThunderCats on another, Transformers had several to themselves. :P


Aw damn someone already did TMNT/TFs though to be fair mine was gonna be the recent movie versions of both franchises so I can still do it I guess. Or maybe I'll try something a bit different. I'm a bit of a stickler for scale though and not many of my figures are in scale with others. :P
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Here's a quick one. Don't know if it counts since Death's Head is technically a Transformers character but the figure is from a Marvel toyline. Simple revamp of an old photo I took last year. Death's Head about to repeat Marvel UK history by blowing up G1 Bee with a big gun, but is unaware of a more hardcore alternate universe incarnation of Bee behind him with an even bigger gun.

Hey Carnivius, welcome to the party. Good stuffs you got there. Death's Head works for me and don't worry about using the same things as someone else, it sure wouldn't stop me. Also don't worry about photo skills, stepping up to the plate is what matters here.

Keep 'em coming ;)^

I'm glad you picked up my hint Carnivus!! Awesome stuff :)

Slightly off-topic: has anyone seen the "History of TMNT featuring Leonardo" multipack at ToysRUs?! It looks amazing, and took a lot of effort NOT to buy it!! It's on my list to buy at some point :-D
