Rescue Bots insignia by MachSabre Rescue Bots insignia by MachSabre
Another round of Transformer faction symbols here. As always, no need to credit me or anything. If you need 'em, use 'em.

This one is for the Rescue Bots. Man, if you had told me that one of my favorite Transformers shows would involve a mostly human cast, have no Decepticons, almost zero fighting, geared toward younger audiences, and getting on just characterization alone, I would have thought you insane. But here we are, and I love the show.

The insignia is not an easy symbol to recreate. It's basically all beveled, which can be a pain if you're trying for straight forward flat coloring. So what I did here was instead of uploading a PNG file, I uploaded the Photoshop file for y'all, so if you're wanting to do any manipulations to it, like keeping it flat shapes, or rendering the hell out of it and making it beveled and shiny... You have that choice.

Either way, I hope it helps.

I like the insignia, and the show too. =)
Well, there is such a thing as "intended" target audience, and then there's "actual" target audience.
I love that you do this. I seem to have missed the whole Transformers window growing up, but these are still pretty cool.

Well hon, I remember going through college and the 'budding comic artist', really annoyed at having to draw symbols a very distinct specific way, over and over again. Price you have to pay, but when you're on a time crunch, or you just don't feel in the mood for precision and just wanna get to the color rendering, it helps to have a Superman symbol or a Decepticon logo handy. And I know a lot of people have their own fan pages, and maybe they're not artists, but just want the symbol for their site... And I know a few professional colorists have used them in coloring the books. If it helps people out, even in a small way... I'm glad to do it.

That said, I think I need to knock out some of the Marvel symbols next.
