    I like it, but, again, you didn't capture the spirit of the Aniamted design. He doesn't have a beer belly, which is understandable, given that that's harder to do in a G1 design, but his face could look much older, like Kup's face. His blaster.. If it looked like his EMP or his magnets, it could be excused, but... At least you kept the broken forehead chevron. As I've said before, you're a great artist, but it still doesn't change the fact that all of your pictures except for Prime and Bumblebee (minus the weird nose) don't "feel" enough like the Animated characters.

    Now that's spot-on. The expression is nice, especially since it can be hard to get expressions out of the G1 animation faces without looking goofy or over-the-top. (I do miss the blue face. Gave it more deffinition against the white head) I love how they head is more Animated Ratchet with G1 style, rather than just G1 Ratchet's head. Not sure about the pose, though. The only other thing that looks off would be the slighty too-thin upper arms, but I didn't notice them until my third take. (and it could just be the pose messing with the depth)

    Nice :D  He doesn't look as grumpy and as old as he did in the cartoon, so that's a plus :thumb 
    Only Prowl left now :D  Can't wait :)

    I like this one alot, all he needs is a older face like Kup and it would be perfect.

    He definitely has that Animated Ratchet in him, but in your way. I like it.

    The feedback people have been giving isn't negative, in fact Spin-Out both times here and with Bulkhead has said that the art is good. What he's discussing is characterisations and personality which are in my opinion valid thoughts and aesthetic tastes. Personally I agree with him in part and I am also an artist, while I think the art is good there are some characterisation issues. Just because you may or may not be an artist doesn't mean anyone should simply dismiss your view out of hand after all.

    this is great!!!

    my only crit is he doesnt really look like he's holding his gun. just looks like a clenched fist with a gun slapped on top. i know that probably wasnt your intent but it just kinda looks that way. i notice some artists do that sometimes and it just looks kinda awkward but other than that i really love this!

    Again, he isn't trying to capture the spirit of Animated, he's using the spirit of G1.

    THAT is entire point.
