Did you have a good summer?

So, once again I find myself apologising for the lack of posts. Gomen na!

It’s ridiculous how quickly time passes: we’re less than a month away from the final quarter of the year. I hope everyone has had a good summer (or winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere). I’ve had a great summer, which was as busy as it usually is, if not even busier than normal.

I was away for about 5 weeks and have been home for just over a week now. I think I’ve recovered and caught up on sleep (it’s good to be sleeping in my own bed again), but still trying to get back into the swing of things. 


I’ve haven’t drawn for more than a month. Hopefully it won’t take me too long to get back into my routine. I will finish Project TF30 at some point. I’m not going to rush into it. I’ve been doodling and sketching on and off between other work that I’ve been catching up on.

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.
