Interesting to know how Rhinox really felt about Dinobot....although I could tell there was tension between them throughout the first two seasons...still, this seems a bit "Tankor-ish" to me the way he's acting...

Does it help you to know he was Tankor?

Other than that, I could really see Rhinox as being the one stuck doing the ulogy and being the pall bearer. Even if it is just because he usually got "stuck" doing what most everyone else would have considered a chore.

I don't get it.

What is it Rhinox is fiddling with?

I think I'm missing something here. What was the point?

For anyone that doesn't get this, it's set at the end of the Beast Wars episode Code of Hero, in which Dinobot sacrifices himself to save the lives of the first humans and prevent Megatron from changing history so that the original Megatron has the upper hand in the battles that will take place in Earth's future. Here Rhinox is setting up the device that essentially acts as Dinobot's coffin, or at least memorial/grave stone. Dinobot is, if I recall, the only member of the Beast Wars to get an actual funeral.

The interaction between Rhinox (who goes on to become the Vehicon Tankor in Beast Machines) and Dinobot is limited, and it's usually him telling Dinobot to quiet down or get his temper under control.

Now to my opinion. While I love it when Beast Wars gets mosaic's this is a little odd to me. I agree, Rhinox would be the one to get "stuck" with doing the eulogy and setting up his funeral, and his opinion of Dinobot seemed to be based on what other people thought of him (Cheetor looked up to him, Rattrap was his friend, etc) but I don't think he'd straight up say at the end "I don't like you". I personally don't think he would have thought this at all, let alone said it.
The reason Tankor's identity was such an interesting shock is because Rhinox was always the dependable one who would get on with anyone, even if he couldn't trust them properly.
I never got a feeling of dislike between these two characters, which just makes some of this mosaic difficult for me to see happening...

Im almost touched......luckily such moments pass quickly. Seriously though, another Good mosaic. I always wondered what Rhinox thought about Dinobot.

Oh the holo-projector at the end of the episode when Primal gives the second eulogy.

Sounds right, I can't quite remember the scene itself.

Well done. I was never a real fan of BEAST WARS (I was 17 and trying to put my toys away at the time), This is a very nice character peice. What do you say to a fallen comrade you didn't particularly like? They deserve your honesty, but you don't want to be disrespectful, and this story achieved that balance perfectly. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

When I drew this, the pencils were sweet. I was a little dissapointed by the way the inks turned out. I'm working on another one now, so does anyone have some inking suggestions?

If your pencils are much better than your inking, don't ink.
I used to skip inking altogether and just neaten the pencils and make them look darker using photoshop/fireworks (or another program).
Since then I've started inking digitally instead, as I still cant ink by hand neatly.
