Transformers Mosaic: "The Lost Patrol."

Postby Richter » Mon Sep 24, 2012 1:35 am

The Universe of the Transformers is vast, and populated by many characters. Their universe is a large tapestry, made up of the stories and points of view of countless experiences that serve the larger whole.

These are some of those stories. This is:

That's awesome, and so very much the style of the real thing. I do like the use of Jazz, Tracks, and Razorclaw like the Spotlight: Jazz.

Best one yet. I say it beats the last enemy just for the art work and fluid writing style.
This artist really deserves some props.

Oh yes! Autobot casualties. Rust to pieces, Inferno and Tracks (EDIT: And Gears).

Okay, I didn't mean that, but I do get a kick out of dead transformers. Especially main cast members.

Reminds me of the atmosphere in the original "Predator". Anyways, if you follow the old "Spotlight" series, 5 Predacons are no match for Jazz :lol:

I was also wondering why there was a naked chic in the background. I never would have noticed if I hadn't noticed Razorclaw drawn in faintly with the background.

Very well done.

Very well drawn and written. Yeah, I was expecting to see the Predator at the end, too the way it was stylized.

AWESOME!!!! Great story and artwork. I love how you can see Razorclaw before his reveal at the end. He is drawn in earlier panels but he is hard to see if you aren't looking for him. I missed Eve too. There is a lot going on in these panels. It's Mosaics like these that make me sad that soon we wont get anymore new ones.

That was great, very atmospheric story and the artwork looks like genuine official work.

I'm perplexed about the lady in the background though. Who is Eve? (aside from the biblical figure)

I just took that as an architectural detail of a ruin in the jungle... not as a literal nude woman with an apple hanging out... you know... like Tomb Raider or Indiana Jones scenery. Am I wrong here? :-?

Hi gang. I'm Matt, the artist that drew this week's Mosaic. First off, thank you all for the kind words. They are greatly appreciated. And now, please allow me to address this naked lady issue.


That's Joana's "Treesha." I snuck her into the background in the hopes that she would color the page for us. As you can see, she's an amazing colorist. She's done a lot of IDW's stuff. Remember Casey Coller's Optimus with American Flag AHM cover? She colored it.

Hope that clears up the issue.
