I noticed this on the TFWiki the other day, so I assume this image isn't new to anyone who pays attention to this kind of stuff. I was dying to show this since I was super proud of it XD!!
This is Shattered Glass Steeljaw- I'm not going to copypaste the profile here, I just wanted to go "hooray, I drew and colored this thing!". His front paw REALLY needs to be bigger, too, but that was something I caught a few weeks after it was all said-and-done.
Thanks to Pete Sinclair for giving me the opportunity to do this profile :)

Steel Jaw is yet another one of those forgotten TF characters. But he's always had a special place in my heart for a very long time now. He's the Autobot counterpart of Ravage.

Is that 'mane' suppose to keep Steeljaw from gnawing on himself?? Or is that just a 'Ricer' mod Blaster added to make him stand out from Ravage...?

Could you explain to me how you color your lineart the way that you do?

And while you were coloring this, did you ever think about coloring his four legs separate colors (blue, yellow, green, and red)? :D

Hahaha; the legs being separate colors would have been funny, but I was told to use colors off of a specific homage vs another :). My lineart is on a separate layer with the transparency locked so I can change colors and all that stuffs easily... dunno how to explain that any better(or if that's what you meant?)

No, that's what I meant. I've been sort of 'collecting' tutorials and information on how to go about getting colors into the lineart without destroying the world. It's the next step I have to take in my own art, and you did it so well in the picture that I just had to ask how it was done.

I'm assuming that the image/lineart has to be changed into a black/white-only setup initially for this to work, right?

And thank you so much for you instantaneous reply!

Steeljaw....wasn't he Blaster's answer to Ravage? The golden-yellow lion-bot?
