Cyclonus saves Metatisic

Mecha sketches by Shinjuchan

Close up of some art from my 'Drawing Mecha' video sessions I did over the past week. Aside from covering limbs, weapons, cubes and faces, I also decided to re-approach this scene from the G1 Metatisic Saga, (chapter 10.,Somewhere next to nowhere TF Metatisic Saga - Part 16  ) where Decepticon Cyclonus has crashed w/ a heavily damaged Metatisic near the desert barrens of Destron.

I only did the rough pencils for the videos, but decided to retool this on behalf of Rainbow Starscream with some color, shade, and definition as it is her favorite moment in the story. Work is in progress yet, so this is not yet the whole thing. Enjoy. I love this scene too.

On a note that’s worth sharing, my grandson, Noah was visiting with me the night I was working on this and surprised, remarked at how long it was taking (as according to a 6-year old *lol* ) I nodded “yup ...sometimes all day” That was right before he executed this perfect slow motion sideways lay shot with my G1 Megatron :XD: Hell yeah! Teaching 'im how to properly deal with Autobots already.

My husband :lmao: ...I love it!

It’s hard for me to accept ...Well, no. I can accept. Believe. It’s sometimes hard for me to believe that I’ve been drawing him for 30 years. I just looked at your page — 16 and love the 80's, huh? Good for you! ^^ I might gripe about having to accept another birthday is coming (and it is, too! On the 27th) but I wouldn’t trade being born when I was. What a awesome decade to be a kid.

I loved Cyclonus because he was so, so very unique. Very unique for a Decepticon. He cared so much. He was so loyal and honestly, compared to the first 2 seasons of G1, that was a 3-60 from the norm. Very different. It was hard to ignore him. If you don’t mind that small story here for a moment, I had no idea we had lost Roger. I didn’t know. I was only 11 then. About 2003'ish however when I first learned about the Botcons, I made a comment about how awesome it would be to meet his voice actor and to meet Frank Welker and tell him what a joy my childhood had been because he had been a part of it when I was told he had died. It had been 17 years by then and my God, I wept for days as though he had just left because for me he had. I think he’d be so amused to see the love fans, new fans even, still hold for this character all this time later.
