Astrotrain by Blitz-Wing Astrotrain by Blitz-Wing
been a long time since I've added anything... Sadly working retail over the holidays has killed any desire to really sit down and draw something but now I've got some free time back I've got my ass in gear and this together.

I didn't want to change much from the original design looks wise but I wanted to try and work out a few issues mostly to do with how the train parts are shown and how the arms fold away.

Unicron is something I'm not sure about ever doing. He's just too epic to ever truly capture right on paper... just yet

Fantastic lines and color; i'd say "as always", but you somehow seem to be visibly improving, even as excellent as you already are. His features are humanoid enough to empathize with him as a living character rather than a sparkless drone, and yet the look of his joints and armor makes him appear definitively mechanical.

I don't know about doing Unicron any time soon. But I have a few ideas on the way and possibly an other mosaic

So is this an interpretation of the original G1 or the Classics Astrotrain?

Either way it looks awesome, just wonderin'. A Masterpiece Astrotrain would be most welcome.:mechabug:

Wow, I am never disappointed when I see your artwork ^^ Thank you so much for sharing and I just wanted to tell you that you're one of my inspirations for drawing. I might not be spectacular at it right now (which is why nothing has been submitted from me for a while now ^^;), but I'm going to keep trying because of people like you.

Awesome that you kept his oversized rifle!

Again, just so angular and chunky good! The wings are very attractive- not as high up like a seeker but that's just me.
