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.

Bee amused me.
Impressing you're able to keep those sketches through the years.

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!
