Nautica Reference by JetBlack0X Nautica Reference by JetBlack0X
Okay, so, yesterday I tried hunting down a good ref of Nautica, and my journey took me through several comics, and even when it was done by the same artist, she was generally drawn a different way every time. Same with the colors, so I decided to make my own. I don't know if I'll ever draw her ever again, but as far as I'm concerned, unless one of the IDW guys puts out something themselves, this is Nautica. xD

THANK YOU ! Like THANK YOU, SERIOUSLY ! QAQ
There's absolutely NO proper reference of her anywhere. I always have to look up bits and pieces from the
comics, like GNAH. I thought I was the only one noticing her ever changing frame on top of that, hahah ! One of the reasons I draw her so rarely despite the fact that I freaking love Nautica. She's so adorbs. Either way, she looks gorgeous here ! :heart:

Yeah, ref hinting in a comic is painful. I kinda guessed her feet. I'm pretty happy with how this came out. I hope it's helpful.

I need to do the same with TAAO Starscream, ref hinting, especially because that guy apparently seems to love to change his design every couple of chapters. He's been through 3 or 4 changes so far in a very short amount of time, wtf. >8'T
For Nautica, I kinda started to look at this custom made figurine too for a bit of ref. And this drawing here's gonna be quite helpful too. especially for the bottom half of her body. ;v;

What I did for Starscream was look at one of the toys that I'm pretty sure he's based off of. I can't remember which one it is, but he's on TFwiki. At least, the designs are similar enough that I'm reasonably sure the comic version is based on it.

*facepalm* Ooooh, I never thought about that ! I'm gonna save some refs of the actual toy on my computer. This sounds like a pretty good reference right there, thank youuu. QAQ
