    "Razorclaw vs. Megatron: The Dark Angel's Might Kills"

    [​IMG]

    Man... it sure has been a while. I just picked up a fancy new piece of equipment over the holidays, and I thought I'd use it to try out a different style of TF art. The scene comes from Universe Razorclaw's backstory: He's an alternate-timeline Tigerhawk who actually succeeded in his mission to destroy Beast Wars Megatron. (In that way, this is sort of a companion piece to another pic of mine.) Bonus points, redeemable nowhere, to anybody who gets the pun in the title and why it's relevant.

    Comments, crits?

    As far as a admire Guido's work, you're a complete artist. The composition is simple and very elegant - diagonal lines dictating the action, balancing perfectly with the fluid curves providing a charming loop to the scene. On top of all that, we see the tension on Megatron's claw, as it breaks the perfect balance of the composition with a purpose. Perfect.

    You never cease to amaze us, and you are truly an inspiration for me. Keep rocking this sh*t, my man.

    Holy cow, new art from Jackpot! It's awesome! I love it! But then again, I dig all your stuff, man.

    And by the way, do you have a larger version of the pic you're using for an avatar? I'm a sucker for Action Masters, and Jackpot (with Sights) is easily my favorite of the bunch!

    Thank you all for the comments! I'm glad to hear people like the piece. It's rare that I have both the time and the impetus for this sort of thing these days, so encouraging words are always good for an extra bit of motivation.

    But nobody has any guesses about the title? If you get the pun, it points to one of my key inspirations for doing this pic... actually a popular subject for Renaissance painters and sculptors...

    Wow, Mako, thank you so much! Since (as I think you know) your work was what inspired me to make TF art in the first place, your praise means a lot!

    I'll dig around and let you know, but I think I made it at basically the size you see - certainly not much bigger, at least.

    Thanks again, everyone!
