Starscream VS Sunburst by Sunstars Starscream VS Sunburst by Sunstars
Edit: added link to original line art. (sorry forgot)

I removed the original work I had done and I am using this instead. The lines [link] for this was done by at MY request. We did a swap, my colours for some of lines that I requested. I am quite please with his lines, they are what I wanted. There are elements of the two duelling Seekers that are MP-03, Classics, Original cartoon and some of his own style.

This art was for me. I asked for the lines and the scene. It was payment for work I did.

I had originally had this coloured as a green seeker, but due to some issues that I am heavily unimpressed with, I have used one of my own characters, Sunburst, as the combatant. Needless to say I am horrendously upset by the level of destructive criticism I had received in private. The same criticism given saying, "could you perhaps lighten the shading here or there," would have been easier to take.

I had been thinking it might be fun to do colour work for people up until this point, which makes me think I should take leave of things for a while. The rather ironic thing is that I felt bad for asking Charger426 to change one or two things on the female character. Her shoulder was in a funny spot at the time. I just hope when I asked him I did not come off as being...I am not sure of the word, rude, and I think I explained to him that I have seen destructive criticism before and I know how bad it can hurt.

This sort of thing is a major reason as to why I was not really interested in doing colour work for people.

So I am posting this "recolour" with a heavy heart. The shading and highlights on "sunburst" are not designed for her. But it still works pretty good. The colouring has taken me a good few days working hard at it. Probably in excess of 36 hours work at least.

I...I...I just dont know what to say. This has to be the best coloring I've seen. I love all the little lights in the background, and the beams from the spot lights. This is beautiful. I hate to hear that it came with some extra baggage. I hope I haven't offfended you during our course of working together. Youv'e turned my simple lines into something more than they'de ever be. So for that, I'm still in your debt no strings attached.:)

That's a beautiful colouring job! I especially like what you did with the cityscape outside the window.

As for your experience... I don't know the details, but I'm terribly sorry you had this happen to you.

I imagine many people would like your help coloring a pic but after your experience you would be very reluctant now. Don't blame you.

Beautiful color job. Did you use a computer program? Very sweet.

Sunburst? You know I really liked her. Good to see more pics around about her.
Anway, which scenne does this belong? It seems to be taking place on Cybertron or something.

Actually it wasn't Sunburst. But another character but it works also for SoV
