Greetings Trans-fans... that's what they're called, right?
Jesus this was tough. To re-iterate what Mooney said yesterday, these Transformer contraptions are very difficult yokes to draw. Nick assigned me Kup to draw for this week; a little pressure as i know Nick is a big Kup fan and even wrote a spotlight issue all about him a couple of years back. For a change, i thought i'd add a bit of halftone and a flat colour, just to make the overall drawing more interesting.
I actually found it difficult to draw his mouth. I mean, i changed parts overall while trying to keep the overall design but i have a hard time specifically when it comes to the Transformer's mouths. Nick draws cartoony mouths and i just can't get it right in my head. Nick makes it work but it feels stupid when i draw it, so i tried to build a mouth for him. Hardcore Transformer fans will probably cry for my blood, but that's what i had to do to make it work i'm afraid.
Hope you like it Nick .....and everyone else too....
