Slog - Stupidity In Blue by WaywardInsecticon Slog - Stupidity In Blue by WaywardInsecticon
No, there's nothing more to this - I've just been playing with the idea of panel art as a pin-up. Still, if I was doing the comics, they'd look like this. They'd also come out really slow. This thing took me several days ( granted, I was distracted for a few. ) I can't colour nearly as fast as I'd like. :p

I don't know who the two Seekers are. Stupidity apparently went to Earth at some point and got herself an F-15-mode ( I think of her as 'she' because in the initial sketch, the face struck me as feminine. ) The greenish guy is greenish because I wanted a colour that would fade into the background and show up Slog well.

Anyway, this was drawn in five parts - the four figures on the floor, each seperate tranistional Slog, and the Seeker in the inset panel. So those were pencilled, inked, scanned, and coloured seperately. Then I arranged them all on the final page. Then I added the inset panel border, background, and lettering. Then I 'Shopped the transitional Slogs and added the flying energon. Then came the background. Then I put in the energon on the floor. Then I added the phase-out effect ( silly, but canon. ) Finally I put in the word bubbles. Oy.

Ouch... Poor Seeker; if not for his/her rather rude attitude towards the lil' artist.
Also, liked the glowing effect of the spilled energon :)

This one picture by Wayward inspired three stories (as of now) by me.
Stupidity in Blue, Redux,
Art Appreciation 101,
and The Only Good Robot is a Dead Robot.

The Seeker getting gutted is Duskwing, and his/her/its hapless companion is Windtalon.

Whoa. I had completely forgotten about Slog's artistic penchant. And that's a lot of work for one single panel. Very excellent work, mind you, but man you must have wanted not to draw for a couple days. (I know I would have had I done this kinda thing. ^^;)

I like the design of the nameless green Seeker in the background. What's he turn into? Without the shoulder air intakes and the curving canopy, it's not an F-15--are we looking at a pyramid jet here?

WaywardInsecticon Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2004
Yeah, he's my usual design for the pyramid guys. I need to work on it, though.
Altaris Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2004
Interesting. The arcs around his head and shoulders are vaguely reminiscent of Powerglide, but that may be just because I've just seen another episode with that obnoxious plane.

*eagerly awaits further depictions of pyramid-jets*

Shows ya right to never mess with a Pretender. Mainly one who enjoys making you into art.

I still think Slog is cute. :aww:
Awesome comic job, real smooth colours.
peppermintwind Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2004
Dude WHOA.

Well, I'd say it was worth the effort, indeed. This is probably one of the prettiest Seekerdeaths I've ever seen.

WaywardInsecticon Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2004
General reply: Slog is a Pretender. The red blobby thing is his Pretender Shell, which he can phase into and out of ( instead of opening it with hinges like most Pretenders. ) The story here is just that Stupidity sassed him, so he's making an example ( and a sculpture ;) ) out of her.

Basically, I wanted a scene that showed Slog's Shell, critter-mode ( it's the first transitional, ) robot-mode, and him carving someone into artwork.

that 0wnz in so many ways :D

great character poses and the phase out effects looks quite convincing. I really like the colours you used. Good emotional impact/shock effect, too. And it's Slog! <333

Thats keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewl!! :D Although I dont get it .... ><

Wow! That one sounds like it was a pain to do, but the final result is great! I don't think I'd even *want* to attempt alla that, though... you're a better man than I am, Wayward ;)

Random Seeker destruction! Gotta love it!

Actually, the greenish one in the background's color scheme kind of reminds me of a lot of those nameless Seekers in More Than Meets The Eye... quite a few of them were teal or some such.
