    Default 5FDP's Creative Corner

    I thought that I might post up some of the pictures that I drew back in 1991 for you all to look at.

    These are obviously free-hand sketches based on the artwork published in the G1 Marvel comics. I used to sit down at my homework desk each morning and just sketch... why, I don't know. I just felt like drawing at the time

    Unfortunately, drawing is a skill like most others - if you don't use it you loose it. There would be no way that I could draw anything like these now

    I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to comment.

    I see you're also a big fan of Wildman. The shading's quite impressive in those pics.

    You know what, I never really thought about it (being a fan of Wildman) back when I was 16, and just read the comics for enjoyment. I didn't really concern myself with who the writer was, the colourist, the artist etc. I don't know if this sounds weird to some, but honestly, the thought never even crossed my mind.

    Now that you have posed the question, I guess the answer would have to be 'yes'. The organic look and feel to the characters appealed to me and gave them a sense of humanity and expressiveness (while still maintaining the appearance of massive friggin' robots) which you could relate to.

    Considering the amount of times I have moved house and state, I'm surprised too The majority of my G1 collection was actually mine as a child as well. I had strict parents to thank... I guess.

    The pages are showing signs of yellowing which doesn't show on the scans. Most of them are about A4 in size.

    Bumblebee would have to be my personal favourite. I got the emotion in his face pretty spot on.

    Very nice interpretation of Wildman's work - I can recall where most of those shots came from in the Comics.

    I LOVE Bee and Prowl's expressions! They're fantastic
    Also, the detail of the characters' hands is really impressive. Hands are the bain of my artistic existance

    Very nice work!
