loved this design. Thinned him out just a bit.
Looks really good
dig the way you drew his faceplate too! very alternators-esque [which is my favorite interpretation headsculpt wise ]
Love it. Just picked up this figure today along with, Thundercracker, Warpath, Kup and Scourge.
looks really nice
This is a really nice piece. I would have preferred the missile launcher on his shoulder, but that's a very minor gripe about a really nice illustration.
I like it. Would love to see it in color.
SQ7. Its funny cause i added the missile launchers and he looked like he was a 7 year old having a tantrum. I'm not sure why so i removed them. I need to add them back.
Awesome pose man! Very, very impressive
I can totally see that when I mentally take away the gun and put it on his shoulder as a launcher.
I think the illustration work is fantastic. I will say that after my previous comment and especially after yours that this actual pose may be what's not working well in your favor. I sorta have a hard time seeing WJ posing like this. Wheeljack seems to be a bit more of an insecure character, and this pose is kinda one of those "HEY! I'm AWESOMELY tough now!" or something kinda poses.
I DO think it would work a lot better as Tracks
Anyways, I've really enjoyed critiquing this work, as I feel it's nice enough to continually engage in doing so. Thanks so much for sharing!
Man you should work at IDW.
IDW needs to hire me. That would be my dream job.
thanks for the comments guys.
SQ7 I like raging discussions about the pros and cons of art. Agreed WJ might be a little too tough in this pose. One thing I am trying to work on is fleshing out the characters more through expression/pose etc. Its tough to add emotional elements to robots, and i 'm not a big fan of the toony/animated look, so exaggerations are out. In fact i would clog this whole fan art section with technical art just so i wouldn't have to see more "animated" Fan Art IMO.
Dark, edgy, technical, and complicated is how i like my TFs.
This is amazing. Wheeljack's become my favorite character over the last couple years. It's awesome to see fantastic art of him.
