    Hey guys, upon working on some customs ideas, I stumbled upon one of my very first pieces of TF artwork after I started collecting again in 2000. My best friend at the time wanted me to take his Chevy Blazer and make a Transformer of it. Autobot Blaze is the result. IRRC, this is the first TF-related piece I colored in Photoshop. Anyways, it was fun strolling back down memory lane again, and I hope you enjoy it as well!

    Wow, I have to say I'm pretty surprised by the responses here! This piece is quite old, and I'd like to think I've improved a bit since then. :) 

    I love fan characters too, if they're done well. This was actually my first fan character ever :)  Each time I set out to create a character, I really try to put a lot of care into the persona and such. I like to make each character stand on his own :) 


    When I first colored this piece, I thought it might be a cool idea to make all of the details light up. I figured if a TF were real, he may have a lot of these electronics lit up and such. I think this piece teeter-tooters on being overboard with that, but I did seek a balance.

    I also did want to really give BLAZE a G1 vibe, despite being heavily influenced by RiD at the time. I patterned a lot of the transform after Skids, and sort of made up the rest.

    Again, thanks so much for the comments! :)
