Quick marker drawing done as both a cool down and warm up drawing. (Pencils last night, and inks today.)
Lockdown was one of my favorite parts from Transformers Animated. I liked the show overall, but I enjoyed the concept behind his character alot. He's actually a good example of what I think is missing from the newer Transformer series.
We keep getting brand new universes, but each has a similar cast. The fact that we have 12 Optimus Primes each with a slightly different personality and life, strikes me as kinda lazy.
If you look back at the original G1 universe it featured a huge cast, and as time progressed we got even more new characters. We got new leaders with Rodimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, and so on...
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... I would love to see the writers and designers of the next series (comic or animated) given free reign to do whatever they want. As long as the story revolves around two warring factions of robots that change from humanoids to vehicles (or animals) I'll be happy.
Sadly, it looks like the next show will be a spin-off of the Bay movie-verse. So expect another Bumblebee to join the 14000 others on the toy shelves this fall.
Sorry about the rant...
