We don't need a magic wand to make the national debt grow, thanks very much.

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

I'm toying with the movie style... It's harder to get a handle on this properly than I figured, at least in terms of making the finished product not look like a skull wrapped in tinfoil with googly eyes.

IPB Image

I started with Grimlock, but I kept editing more and more parts of the original head out till all that's left is the vague shapes of the faceplate and some abstracted antennae. He's somewhere between the Autobot "WHEE MOVING PARTS!" aesthetic and the "RAAAAGH POINTY FEAR ME!" Decepticon look. Not the cleanest pencils ever, but it's sooo shiny.

No idea what colors I should throw on this thing.

Very nice work on the shading, Spark. The head kinda reminds me of a movie version of RID/Car Robots Omega Prime.

Thought about it. I'm not sure how, though, since the movie's all disguise-oriented and giant robotic T-Rex isn't exactly a good disguise...

Tell that to Scorponok. Maybe Grimlocks protoform crashed in the Atlantic Studios Jurassic Park theme ride or something? XD

Who knows. Its all up to a storyline to justify an oddity. =)

Like... Have Grimlock be a triple changer with a normal vehicle mode and a more saurian robot "battle mode". Like battlemasks and gun arms on crack.

Anyway. Really sweet pencil work. =) This will look awesome when colored. The expression is also neat, all grumpy like. XD

I think you have the movie aesthetic nailed down quite well. The teeth gives him a bit of War Within feel and the shady is top notch. Especially in his eyes. As far as a vehicle mode would go, you could make him a tank similar to the War Within version, but give his robot mode some more saurian elements to it. Sorta like how BW Dinobot has a rib cage.

United we conquer

Just a thought (or ten).

Yeah, I think a giant robot T-Rex would be silly as hell on the big screen. Very Mecha-Godzilla. Grimmy should be a tank but not an ordinary one - something big and menacing that looks like it will crush you and tear you to pieces all at the same time.

The colored version. Since the movie seems to mostly stick to the color schemes of the G1 counterparts where one exists (even to somewhat dull effect with solid silver Megatron), Grimlock gets stuck with a mostly black head, two shades of red for his original one, and three shades of silver for innards.

Mind taking a shot at doing movie Arcee, she getting a toy, so why not. I ask cause I see you have the skill to pull off such a task.

I think Arcee's already been defined via the prequel comic cover, but I could take a crack at something different anyway.

I didn't notice the fact that you mirrored one half of his face. It was brilliantly done! The design as a whole is brilliant! My only complaint is I think he has a bit too much red on his colours. But other than that, Kudos!
