I’m back… kinda.

Sorry for the impromptu hiatus to Project TF30. Had family matters to attend to. Still kinda recovering from what has been a long, emotionally draining and mentally exhausting week or so.

Originally planned to end the project today (30 day project for the 30 days of June) but that’s not going to happen. Still intend to get all 30 illustrations finished though. These last ones will probably be of a smaller scale/sketchy due to having lots of other things to do and catch up on.

"Honour does not need to be won; but it should never be lost."
Still with the Beast Wars theme on day 18. Dinobot, the Predacon who valued honour over anything else, joined the side of the Maximals all for the sake of honour. If he has to take down Megatron for his honour, then so be it.Tweaked his design a little; I was never fond of his hands in the original show.

"Well, that’s just prime!"
Day 17 continues the Beast Wars theme with Optimus Primal — the leader of a small Maximal crew that pursued the Predacon criminal to Earth.
He can fly.
He has a mace in one hand and an arm cannon on the other. 
He has swords on his back, and missile launchers that can deploy over his shoulders. 
He transforms into King Kong a gorilla and will kick Megatron’s tail-end back to Cybertron.

"We’re all gonna die…"
Following the G1 universe, Beast Wars in my next favourite series. Since it was a little before my time, I only watched the odd episode of the original cartoon on VHS that I had or borrowed. But, I remember waking up early in the mornings to watch Beast Wars before going to school — it totally blew my mind.
Love the whole Maximal crew, but Rattrap was such an unforgettable character. His transmetal form was amazing too. I never managed to get hold of the toy though :’(

"The newest enforcer of the Tyrest Accord: Star Saber!"
Day 15 of Project TF30, marks the start of week 3 and the half-way point of the project. Good time to take stock and review how everything is going so far. Generally going quite well; meeting daily targets. The last few felt a bit stale in design, and composition, etc. which will be considered more for the last half of the project.Anyway, for the third week I shall be focussing on other series and universes in the Transformers franchise. Kicking us off is Star Saber. Though technically part of the G1 universe, he didn’t appear in the western cartoon. I’ve never properly watched the Japanese seasons, but I loved how he was portrayed in IDW’s More Than Meets the Eye.

"Defend ‘til the end!"
The Protectobots team is not truly complete without drawing their combined form, Defensor… Shame I didn’t have the time. Haa. It would’ve been a great way to end week 2 of this project, but I realised that it would’ve been too much to take on, and needed more thought and design, so I threw this group shot together instead.
I’ll definitely draw Defensor when this project ends. I had planned to make this into a pin-up/poster of sorts, with Defensor in the background and his component bots featuring in the foreground. 
Watch this space.

"War’s a dirty game — and I’m a dirty player!"
I drew the final member of the Protectobots team last Friday.
Blades loves nothing more than getting up-close and dirty with the Decepticons. Unfortunately, for the sake of teamwork and efficiency on the battlefield, he is stuck following orders and providing support from the skies.
When he can though, he’ll drop into the thick of it and switch his gun-blade to melee mode, daring any Decepticon to come close to him.

No More Oil to Burn

Feeling canny burnt out though.

Stayed up to watch the NBA Finals game yesterday (tip off was at 1am over here). Totally glad I did but I’m feeling it today – I can’t handle burning the midnight oil like my younger self once could.

I’m so pleased San Antonio won. Throughout the finals, they’ve had some of the smoothest and sweetest ball movement I’ve ever seen. I’ve always admired the humility of this team. 

'Gratz, Timmy D, TP, Manu, and Pop. You deserved it. Also, I can't think of anyone else who deserved the Finals MVP more than Kawhi Leonard – the "King’s" crown belongs to you and your team.

"You have to know where you are before you know what to do."
Rounding off the illustrations so far this week with Streetwise. Didn’t finish this one ‘til late last night and it was pretty rushed. Busy week really has been busy. 
Streetwise will risk his own spark to find them pesky crooks, or to protect his brothers-in-arms.
Just one more Protectobot to go. 
Probably won’t get around to uploading them ‘til the beginning of next week. Weekends are always jam-packed for me, not to mention England are playing their first World Cup game this Saturday.

"Can’t we all talk this over a nice quart of Engex?"Continuing with the Protectobots theme, here’s Wednesday’s illustration: Groove. A pacifist deep down, Groove is the reluctant fighter of the group and would rather open up negotiations. When dragged into the inevitable, he fights thinking only of those he wishes to protect.
Redesigned Groove with a motortrike alt-mode in mind. His alt-mode also has a “High Speed Pursuit” function where the two front wheels join together, sacrificing stability for speed.
