Superb interview Va'al! :BOWDOWN: I'm looking forward to seeing some more awesome artwork from the extremely talented Mr. Raiz!

My question for James would be, will you be coming to the UK for any conventions/signings soon?

Thanks so much for the kind words :) And may I continue to give my props to my boy Don - that dude's work ethic is unparalleled :)

The most rewarding has got to be the first time I drew Movie Starscream with the TF Movie: Search for Starscream cover. I felt it was the first time I really got to be myself when drawing TFs - one of my favorite pieces to date :)

Though I also did love drawing Armada Megatron as well - though not 22 pages of him (those darn treads!) lol!

Thanks so much! It's so much fun drawing for you guys again :) Hope you like it :)

I would love to, but this year is turning out to be a bad one for conventions - my schedules keep conflicting!

But I am planning on hitting all the major Transformers Conventions next year, so you'll have to be patient for now - and hope the public still likes my art then lol!

Another enjoyable read Va'al. I'm enjoying your interviews.

I'm looking forward to seeing James' take on the crew of the lost light. I really enjoyed his interpretations of the monsterbots back in Maximum Dinobots years ago. The pages in issue four between Repugnus, Grimlock and the Dinobots are still some of my favourite pages today.

Welcome back to the franchise James. :APPLAUSE: Looking forward to it.

Not saying he's bad, he's amazing, just stating that I like your stuff more.

I can totally see how finishing off a Movie TF that looks good is rewarding, the amount of detail and shapes needed for the parts insane.

Yea, Armada Megatron is damn fun to draw, but I gave up on trying due to never being able to get those stupid shoulder threads to work properly. Everything else is fine and dandy, but those damn shoulders :lol:

A shame I will have to wait till it's collected in TPB form to enjoy your TF work again.
