Long Live Galvatron

Aight, so here's the deal. I'm a HUGE Transformers fan. Always have been, since I was a wee child of the 80's. I cried when Optimus Prime died. It's like that. But somehow, I have never, ever, ever drawn a Transformer in my life. Never even crossed my mind. Crazy, right? Well, now I know why. BECAUSE THEY'RE A $#%^ING PAIN IN THE ASS TO DRAW. This sketch was an ordeal lemme tell you, and I can pretty much guarantee I won't be drawing any more Transformers anytime soon. I got the Transformers Generation 1 Complete Box Set for Christmas, so best believe I have been in Decepticon heaven over here. I've been into it so much I just had an itch to draw one of these guys, and Galvatron was always one of my favorites. The scene in the movie where he takes out Starscream at the coronation. . . . . .awww man. Doesn't get any better than that.

Anyways, enjoy this, cuz you probably won't see it again.

I have never drawn a transformer for the same reason k. I love em to death but they are just a pain to draw ah well maybe one day.

yo!!!! Wot?! Lemme say this. I HATE YOU. This is hella tight. For you being a virgin drawing Transformers hot like this out of the gate, I'm scared to see a full body shot. hahaha Transformers are tough because of the math that has to go into it.

All kidding aside, you know I love ya, and I wanna see more of the Khary hotness.

You know... the way you are about Transformers, I'm like that about NInja Turtles (except maybe x10). I'm a TMNT FANATIC for real. But I have yet to do anything more than a quick doodle of a ninja turtle. So what is it? Are we too scared to take on something so near and dear...? Nah, never that. So let's see a full-body Transformer!!!

Tokka - you and me both, sister. It just happened around 1am for no good reason. . .

eugene - they are a serious pain.

Cheeks - for real, you get one angle or line off and the shit looks all wrong! Organic bodies you can fake the hell out of and no one knows the better!

Alex - Dude, maybe it's a fear of disappointing the things we love, haha. I also will not draw girlfriends or family for probably the same reason. Man, this blog is like sitting on a shrink's couch. . .

That is cool! Who doesn't love Transformers? Hopefully you get around to drawing some more of the old school style. The comics are still pretty cool but the movies are really messing things up.

Adrian Barrios said...
