    That's freaking sweet!

    By what I can see, he has the face and chest of movie-verse Ratchet, the headcrest, arms and legs of G1 Ratchet, the design-type and color-scheme of WFC-Ratchet with some cues [in the color-scheme] from Animated-Ratchet.

    Prime-Ratchet was late for the party or what?

    lol actually I tried to take Primes sideburns and blend them in.... but yeah he kinda got pushed to one side but considering that ratchet bar the movie design are all rather consistent I don't think its a big deal

    It's not a big deal, I was just making a note.

    It's still very impressive to see the quality of the art and how you blended all Ratchet's [except Prime-verse] into one, single and cool Ratchet.
    That's awesome man, that's awesome.

    You should start making that kind of logic [blending all version of the characters into one] with other characters [like Ironhide, or Megatron or Starscream].

    I would absolutely love to have a toy of this in a package with this for the character artwork.

    As a matter of fact, I feel that way about most of your illustrations. :)

    Badass as usual, and nice colors.

    Small point of critism though: it looks like he has no body..there's nothing there to suggest he has a back or a ribcage or something like that, just a flat chest with nothingness behind it. I think even from this angle you should be able to see something. :) 

    Love the tools on his hips!

    he suffers from the dreaded hollow chest it seems. Sadly its a clearance issue to fit his arms inside the body while having the whole side of the front stick out the shoulders this sadly means theirs little to bulk out the torso aside from the front of the car.

    Awesome. Love the tools on his sides. I can almost hear someone off screen yelling "MEDIC!".

    i like the idea of a lean medic. The protruding leg is a little strange and awkward but it works. Nice piece. I'm really liking some of your recent car illustrations on devart. Sick!

    In think the way you intergrated the front fo the car into a chest design was really impressive and creative. I'm not sure how I like the face, but the overall build is expressive.

    Another awesome redesign, it's got a blend of Movie and G1, but at the same time it looks like it's own thing too.

    Love it. Looking at it, I feel like if I had the toy in hand, I'd be able to rotate the waist, swivel the head, swap the hands, and then I could have that War Within-style Ratchet with the windshield in front of his face... sort of oldschool in a way.

    That has to say something about how well-realized this is, when I can already start mapping out a fan-mode for it. :)
