    Excellent as always. I think you did a great job emoting the struggle to continue the fight in Prime's eyes. I know cartoonists/illustrators discuss about how hard it is to emote with faceplate characters, but I've never liked the cartoony expressions on the characters with mouths, except with radically abstracted styles like yourself. For me, unless the mechanics allow for such expressions, I don't care for them.

    Anyways, I really like the composition of this piece as well. It's like, as the viewer, I'm peeking out afraid of being in danger myself. I like how Megatron is subtly in there as well :)

    Personally, I never believed people who say characters without human faces are difficult to emote. I never even thought of G1 Prime, Wheeljack, Soundwave, etc to be faceless, because I just figured that's what their faces looked like. Good artists like you will take certain features and adjust them to get just as much emotion out of it as if you had a full face to work with, and that's talent!

    yep, considering the small space to work with you've nailed it pretty well i reckon.

    fancy another colouring job?

    Simple, stunning capture of such a famous scene. This is beautiful. I think the emotions are perfectly captured. Hope to see it colored.

    Looks great. Especially in black and white, captures how 'life and death' it is.
