    "For the Glory of Megatron" by ~Ra88 on deviantART

    Wanted to try and do a movie-fied Lugnut, but I wanted to have him be different from Blackout design-wise. So I decided to make him a true monster, something that you will think twice about facing on the battlefield. :)  (Ironically enough he's based on that veeeery early concept of Blackout, go figure).

    That thing is a total behemoth... O_O

    I only mean it in the awesome way when I say that he looks like somethin' that could be in a Contra game as a boss enemy.

    This is totally badass. Although, I think if you moved everything from the torso up back a little bit on his spine it would look better. Maybe I can photoshop what I'm talking about.

    Know what you mean. Most of the time I do my drawings in two parts (upper body and lower body), and then attach the two in Photoshop. I did the same with this and originally I had the lower body more like you suggested, but it looked like he had a big chunk of his spine missing, so I went with what you see in the final version instead.

    very cool looking

    you should put a size comparison to another movie character...he just looks absolutly monstrous in the pic because his plane mode is right beside him making him look like 10x bigger then the plane


    but very nice work indeed

    I might once I color him, but I'll need to know how big that plane is first.

    You need to know how big that plane is. Well, here's the specs on a B-17G.
