    Now available as an officially licensed Transformers brand T shirt from WeLoveFine! http://www.welovefine.com/4495-space-t-rex.html


    #spacetrex

    This piece is inspired by Matt Tieger of High Moon Studios and his use of the term "Space T-Rex" when describing Grimlock from the upcoming Transformers game 'Fall of Cybertron' to the mainstream media. Some uptight fans gave him crap about using a "silly" term like that, but I effing love it. Space T-Rex forever!

    So I made this art! Loosely based off of Grimlock's FoC design. Here he is floating serenely in space, like a space T-Rex does. Actually he probably is usually crushing things. But whatever.

    Sketched out in sketchbook pro and photoshop, inked in illustrator, colored in photoshop.

    I also used this lovely star field BSF read the description by *dyemooch on deviantART from the awesome Dyemooch in the background.

    Love it!

    The composition also has a bit of a classic Enterprise-in-orbit vibe, I thought it was maybe a pun on "Space(star) Treks"

    Lovely work in any event!

    Thanks for all the kind words, folks. I don't plan on making any merch but feel free to head to deviant art and DL the full resolution image if you wanted to print one up for yourselves! Just send me a pic when your done!

    Also, if anyone wants a specifically sized resolution copy for a desktop wallpaper and you can't Photoshop the high resolution jpeg from DA yourself, let me know and I will get you one.

    Also, signature sized if anyone wants to use it. [​IMG]

    Wonderful. If only this was what his actual level was like. He looks so... peaceful. Like a whale.

    Actually that's not it at all. The term itself is a long used, perfectly fine term. It's because Matt Teiger is a tool and thinks that using generalised descriptors to appeal to mainstream audiences over a concept that's already acceptable is somehow not eye-roll worthy. :)

    I dunno if I agree. To me it seems to be that he is genuinely cool and very excited and this was just his personal over excited term for it.

    The fact he stopped using it makes me sad. It so fun and goofy.

    Perhaps a little too excited.

    But at least it lives on in the fanbase and this awesome artwork.

    lol maybe. I enjoyed his excitement. I'd probably be just as excited.

    And thanks!
