    So, I've been working on this fan comic for the last three months with the intention of making it my final BFA gallery show project. That means once it's complete I get to display it in a formal gallery setting.

    Now, the whole thing is finally done and the show is set to open tomorrow night and I thought I'd share with my fellow Transfans since it is a Transformers comic.

    The story is basically a variation on Beast Machines except it has been transported to Earth which has given me the opportunity to explore some themes about how our own technology has influenced our culture, changed our own biology, etc.

    I've uploaded three sample images and the rest of the line art (I'm waiting until after the reception to post the finished pages) can be viewed via the links in my deviantart journal.

    Small WARNING: one or two of the pages contain mild violence. I don't think it's anything that violates board rules but as a precaution I won't link directly to the images.

    I tried to differentiate the characters from their previous Beast Wars/Beast Machines incarnations (Optimus being a lion instead of a gorilla is probably the most striking example of this) and create a few new ones. I'm happy to know my efforts seemed to have paid off.

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    This is actually Optimus PRIME, not Primal. But yeah, I like the idea of a beast mode Optimus as a lion more than a gorilla.
