    “Carnivac vs. Bludgeon: Let's Play Pretend

    [​IMG]

    Little backstory for those not in the know:

    In the UK comics, Carnivac was sort of a BW-Dinobot precursor. He was a Decepticon who teamed up with a small group of Autobots against a common enemy, Galvatron. After Galvy's defeat, Carnivac and the then-Decepticon Catilla maintained their tense truce with the 'Bots they'd fought alongside. This was viewed as treason by the 'Con High Command, and a squad was sent to destroy everyone involved. They only succeeded in killing Catilla (who fell to the squad leader, Bludgeon), but this sent Carny into a vengeful rage. He began stalking the execution squad, destroying them one by one. His attack on Bludgeon ended in more or less a draw, and Bludgeon's eventual defeat took the form of mere imprisonment in a 'Bot cell. But then he escaped anyway, and it's hard to imagine that he and Carny would never cross paths again...

    So. Comments, critiques, etc.?

    nice to have you back!

    as always, i love your understated, content over substance style. even without the pretext, its nice to mull over whats going in your drawing. one of the guys where i actually look beyond technique when appreciating the art. good stuff!

    reminds me of the reflector/mirage/thundercracker piece you did. keep up the goodwork, looking forward to more of your tell a story pieces.

    also, i just realized your linework is reminescent of geoff senior.

    PRETENDERS LOOKING COOL!

    Awesome!

    I love pretenders, and this is a fantastic piece... the concept is just perfect from what the series was like.

    I would like to see more pretenders art.

    Incredibly cool piece! I have to admit I missed Carnivac's paw the first time around until I read Phoenix Prime's response.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone! I'm glad to see your thoughts.

    Thank you! It's good to get back in this saddle, too. I probably won't be making too many appearances, since it was basically a fluke that I had enough spare time and wherewithal over the weekend to crank this thing out. But I do what I can. :) 

    That's mighty high praise in my book! I was very consciously trying for a Senior-esque style this time around; most of the time, I chicken out when it comes time to slather the black everywhere. But man, does it ever make a difference.

    Heh heh. Awesome. That's all I need. :) 

    Ohhhh I don't know. What do you, the VIEWER, think? ;) 

    Hee hee hee. <i>Just the way Carny would want it.</i>
