    Transformers Animated Bruticus and Predaking + SUGGESTIONS

    Well with some of the new Botcon stuff surfacing [I really wish I could go there and complete my TFA collection :( ], I noticed that Derrick J Wyatt had made some AWESOME sketches of Bruticus and Predaking. I decided to try and colour the sketches to see how it would come out. Also, if anyone else wants to colour the sketches, I put some clean lineart up on my Deviantart account.

    Enjoy! :D 

    EDIT: Starting now until next Sunday (not the upcomin one) I'll have some days off. I was wondering if anyone would like to suggest some TFA characters to draw, preferably some characters that are a bit more obscure, but still have some reference on the web.

    And since I didn't make it quite clear that the lines were drawn by Derrick J Wyatt, here's the initial sketches I found:

    Is it just me or does Predaking remind anyone else of the chicken from Family Guy?

    Great work on these :thumb

    Thanks for the compliments, I guess he is chicken like, especially with that beak of his.

    Bruticus looks awesome! But I hate to say that Predaking doesn't really work for me, but other then that these look great.

    Good work as always! :thumb

    Thanks! :D 
    Should I have added more colour to Predaking's chest?


    Thanks, it was actually nice to be doing more of these, I had a lot of fun.

    No it's not that. It's just that the head doesn't really scream "Predaking", to me. I'm not trying to say it's bad, I'm just saying it doesn't quite work as Predaking for me.

    I see, I think it's probably the beak that stands out. I like it, but I do wonder why Derrick J Wyatt gave him one, LOL.

    Thanks for the suggestions. :)  Just thought you'd like to know that there's already a TFA Kup, Seaspray, Reflector and Cosmos. I believe they can be seen on tfwiki.

    The Bruticus is a total BULLSEYE, but the Predaking falls flat, he reminds me too much of the alien internet scammers from Futurama.

    For suggestions, you can never have enough Apefaces lol, but also what about Abominus, since we're discussing combiners?

    I really like Bruticus, but I have to agree that Predaking looks awkward with that beak.

    As for suggestions, how about HFTD Hailstorm or Skids and Mudflap? I think the Twin's faces could easily fit into the TFA style, and Hailstorm could be another heavy brute like Blackout or Lugnut.

    Yeah, I found some sketches of his online and I decided to colour them. I can only wish that I drew these.

    We all wish we could draw Bruticus.
    Predaking, to put it bluntly, sucks. I'm sorry, but he looks ridiculous with that face. Come on! The Beast looked better than this!

    Just wanted to readvertise that the sketches were Derrick J Wyatt's. Here's the original source of the pics:

    People need to start realizing that drawing a quick sketch of a character at a convention or meetup simply does not weigh up to the time and trouble somebody takes to design a character in the working environment.

    It's nice that artists like Derrick take the time to draw some characters for the fans, but I think people shouldn't treat this like these are the definitive head designs if TFA Bruticus and Predaking were ever officially in the cartoon - I'm sure they'd look different and better.

    I like the beak thing on Predaking, although I have to agree with everybody else that it looks a bit freaky. Bruticus just looks generic...but again, taking into account that these were sketches and probably made up on the fly with little to no reference, they're really nice.

    Good job on retracing the lines and coloring, looks crisp. I think maybe the colors on Predaking's face, especially the white teeth, look a bit off though..not sure if they are meant as actual teeth or more a faceplate decoration with the same color as the rest of the plate. :)
