Transformers Mosaic: "Serve and Protect"

Postby Richter » Sun Feb 01, 2009 10:33 pm

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:

Nice Ironhide mosaic and gorgeous art including a transformation scene and a very nice closeup.

I'm confused though on how Mirage is at fault in anyway... :-(

Nice mix of the G-1 robot modes with the movie alt modes.

Whenever there's talk of Ambushes and Traitors, Mirage is ALWAYS the culprit... kinda like whenever Cybertronians leave Cybertron, the only place they ever end up is EARTH. :)

Anyways, I like the use of Movie-Style alt-modes in the G1 setting. Pretty awesome. Great Ink/Color work too.

B-) :APPLAUSE:

Now thats what the movie bots should look like. They retain what a Transformer should look like but adds some thing new as well. Some one should send this to Bay.

I don't get it. What did this ever have to do with the movie? This was G1, or at least U2.0 Ironhide and Classics Prime with one of the recent trailers made for him...

Great Mosaic though! The best art in recent releases, IMO!

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

I really don't like the Mosaics that alter known facts of TF history. If you are making a G1 Mosaic, then the TFs should be their G1 designs.

Oh really? Which G1 designs would those be? How their toys looked? If so, which toys? How they looked in the cartoon? How they looked in the comics? If so, according to which artist?

Hey everyone, the artist here. Thanks for the kudos, glad you liked the redesigns! Well, except for those who didn't like the blend of G1/Movie (In my defense, I just looked at it as having fun designing my own G1 than trying to blend the movie into it. Prime and Ironhide have both been longnose semis and pickups long before 2007 came along. I dont consider my designs a movie aesthetic, or a "G1/Movie blend" but obviously the connotation is made, but its how people associate/interpret new things to what they already know.)

As for not liking it? Go you, no reason you should have to like it, or adhere to popular majority. Absolutely have your preferences and tastes, otherwise you'd just be a sheep. :)

(and everyone else.... really? I know we're Transfans and we have to hassle anyone who disagrees with us, but really? Really?) lol

I based Prime's long-nosed truck design after this Prime painting I did a year back or so, so maybe that's a nice compromise for him not transforming in this Mosaic? :D http://metryx.deviantart.com/art/Highwa ... n-65661483

Wow. Talk about some opinionated people! I always thought that Mosaic was supposed to be an outlet for the fans to apply their own creative and artistic license to the franchise. The way I see it, it's all open to interpretation. "Same" is boring. Kudos to this one. I really dug the re-designs and attempt to bring modern styling to G1.

Thank you. In no way was I insulting the artist or their drawing ability, I was merely stating my OPINION. It seems as though others didn't like the fact that I was stating my OPINION, though.

I didn't mind you stating your opinion. I just didn't see the point of noting a mix of G1 and movie until last night. Still don't entirely agree, but it's your opinion and you have a right to it.

Prime looks more like a cross between Classics Prime and G2 Battle Convoy with the G1 trailer (or maybe the similar trailer announced recently).

It's with Ironhide's alt mode that I see your point, though. I think that could pass for the modified pickup used in the movie. Even then, however, it looks to me like it'd fit in with G1 as much as the movie.

WHAT?????

What do you mean you didn't see the point of noting it until last night? That's the first post I put in this thread because it was right after I saw the mosaic. Am I expected to view a mosaic the moment it is immediately posted and reply to the thread about it
right away?

It seems as though the TF Cartoons and Comics Forum is the next forum to be filled with posters that debate with others merely because they stated their opinion.
