Normally I would highly praise any Masterforce mosaic, but this one seemed to disappoint. And it was about one of my favorite characters too.

The story itself was good. I found the message to be a very positive one. But what makes this disappointing to me is the artwork of Minerva herself.

She is drawn much older than she should be, as the text sets this just after episode 4. I understand that some people like to do this sort of thing to make the characters look more... 'appealing' to the readers. But this makes her look like a completely different person, and in her early twenties when really she's only 15.

Not to mention the 'alterations' made to her torso area. She shouldn't be that developed. In fact, it looks as though they're sagging. That's just very disturbing to me.

I'm sorry but to me, this piece of work doesn't cut it as that giant "eye-candy" pic of her just overshadows the messege behind the story.

Masterforce was awesome, this was just a big let down to me. :|

Personally I liked it. Nevered watched Masterforce. As to art I think it's fine she looks like she goes to a prep school. As to how she looks well we have remember Mosaics arn't canon unless noted what if the cast was older. Wouldn't change the plot much.

Holy Crap what is wrong with you people!! This is one individuals artistic take on a given aspect of the TF mythos and you folks dump all over it because it isn't exactly spot on with YOUR ideal or it didn't copy the show EXACTLY?
Pull the stick out! This is art, this is individual expression and in my opinion this is one of, if not THE most, beautifully done Mosaics out there. Even though I know little of Masterforce, there is enough storywise to give me some clue as to what is going on and, again, the artwork is amazing. Whereas before I had little interest in delving into the backstory of Masterforce or the other non-US stories, this actually has me curious now. Pointing out the details of the bracelet was a nice touch and nothing makes a story more enjoyable than the feeling that you can relate with the character even if their outward struggle is one of epic proportion.

I'm truly impressed and now I'm curious enough to start researching the rest of the story.
Great Job! :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Very nice artwork. Be interesting to see an actual robot mode Transformer in this style. While I enjoyed Masterforce, I do like the older portrayal of Minerva here. I mean, at this point, haven't we learned that kids and TF's do not mix.

Very nice mosaic.

Very nice mosaic.
This takes place right after episode four and she looks ten years older that normal.
