Time for another warm up sketch and dig a little deeper into this Manga Studio thing. Today’s sketch, in keeping with the holiday, is the most lovable of the G1 Transformers (okay, that’s a stretch)! BRAWN Pencil and Manga Studio on 8.5×11″ paper. And here’s the original sketch on copy paper:  

Drawing for Myself – Inferno

Today’s warm-up sketch was inspired by the fact that I was listening to Beast Wars while I was working yesterday. INFERNO Pencil and brush pen on 5.5×8.25″ bristol It’s safe to say that I love each and every character in that series, but Inferno definitely ranks pretty high in my list of favorite characters. Because […]

Back to doing warm-up sketches! Today’s subject is my hands-down favorite Beast Wars character. TIGATRON Pencil, brush pen, and crayon on 4.25×5.5″ bristol. For those not familiar with Beast Wars, Tigatron was an interesting addition to the TF franchise, in that he was a bit of a shaman type of character, who preferred to remain […]

Was waiting for the software to update on my desktop, so I sketched out a couple of fan art pieces. First up, a Transformer no one talks about enough: Rewind! The Autobot trivia expert. One of Blaster’s tapes, in case you don’t remember. Pencil, brush pen, and crayon on 4.25×5.5″ bristol. Then I did this […]

Got a new box of crayons the other day, and I’ve been listening to TF G1 S1 in the background while I work lately, and during Thunder Punch Daily 139 I remembered that I used to do these fun little warm-up sketches almost every day. Plus I had a Twitter conversation with Kasey Van Hise last […]

New Transformers Show Airs Nov 29

Not sure how to feel about this yet. Looks like a fusion of the Michael Bay movies (which I won’t watch, don’t even bother trying to sell me on them) and the recent Transformers: Animated series. Funny side-note for those under 30: Until recently, Ratchet was definitely not a main character in the franchise. Oh, […]

Really nifty iPhone 4 skin I found on Etsy. They also have a Soundwave skin, but the obnoxious TF dork in me noticed that it wasn’t exactly accurate. The Blaster one is tempting, though! Continuing on with the TF dorkiness: I was, of course, reminded of the G1 TF episode “Auto-Bop“, where the Decepticons open […]
