TFA - Until It Sleeps... by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL TFA - Until It Sleeps... by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL
Transformers: Animated, Shockwave. About to...do something horrible...to the viewer, I suppose.

He is supposed to be "Shh" with his talon, buuuuut...I can also sorta see it that he could be clicking his "tongue" (if he has one...oO) in that fake concerning tone while tapping said talon on his face plate, before mutilating whoever it is, while saying something in that awesome voice, of course-masterfully done by Corey Burton.

Found this tribute accidentally while looking for some good ref of 'ole Shocky in this form...and this one, is actually REALLY good. The part with his face as Longarm and the eye showing up in the lens on his head at :30 is epic.

[link]

I do enjoy them looking mean and nasty...

The original file name was "God is God", as I was listening to Juno Reactor when I first got the idea of this image a month or so ago...

But I listened to Until is Sleeps by Metallica of course, covered by Apocalyptica, near the end of it's completion- and it fit rather well. Well, that, and the song playing in the tribute. LOL

I like the fact I was able to get the look I wanted, without actually doing the whole painting thing. Another step in the right direction perhaps...I am still trying to tweak with what I want for color randering. I had to alter some of the linework, as this is older...some of the parts were out of place to my tastes now a days. Argh.

He is looking rather diabolical and sinister here-and he isn't even my favorite...but he grew on me QUITE a bit while working on this...but not so much.

Just reminds me, I really need to do something like this with a couple of my favorites, namely, well, my ALL TIME FAVORITE...'ole BUCKETHEADRAGEYPANTS-er, MEGATRON...LOL. Now, hopefully, can get some other things done...well, after I finish some holiday driving...

I am sure we remember who owns Transformers...but if we don't, Oh, Hasbroken...how you hurt me by cutting off this wonderful series.

This picture made my inner fangirl die a pleasant death! This piece is so dark and gorgeous all at once, and captures Shockwave’s awesomeness on so many levels (Your description alone made me go :iconepiclaplz:) You did an amazing job and it’s taking a long time trying to pull my eyes off your work! XD

Shockwave is my favorite Transformer, and he was great in the TFA series. I shall miss it and him :(

Keep on being awesome! :thumbsup: :clap:

Haha, I am glad you like it! This was one of the first ones I messed with back in 2009 trying to develop my way of coloring. TFA Shockwave is still one of my favorites, and he is still one of the best Shockwaves, if not THE BEST one I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure TFP version will blow him out of the water though if he ever shows up!

Thank you very much!

He is a wonderful and dark character in that show, I just remember this scene coming to me one day and I had to get it down. Was one of the first few I started learning a few of my current techniques with color, so it remains one of my favorites for that reason.

Thank you very much for the kind words! :)

Your colors are phenomenal. I had seen your lineart for this and must say they are super neat and crisp. I just downright love his pose too. Beautifully evil!

LOL. You are like the 2nd or third person to mention that song.

And thank you as well! I'd like to do a revamp or something one day, maybe TFP version, whenever they finally release him...which i'm sure will happen eventually!

Lol, Shockwave must get what he wants, no matter how many children stand in his way.

That would be awesome :) I've read of some possible plans with TFP and they gotta have Shock for sure. Until then though, playing the waiting game, grr. I have no doubt though that his design will be truly badass just like the rest of the designs. (cept for Starscream's heels, I can see him prancing around on a catwalk)

BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011   General Artist
Lol so many talk about the heels. I guess I selectively don't see them, just see like his bird feet instead.

And he will be in it and joy will be had.

:icongeneralbrievous:
generalbrievous Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2011  Student General Artist
When I first saw his design, I didn't see the heels either until I read some comments. Now everytime I see him walk on the show, he seems like he's really walking in heels.
Oh well, I still love him and will always find him sinister and smexy :3

Oh yes, and people's faces shall melt off. I am super curious on how he would look in the show. Many possibilities.

Yeah, I've seen a lot of things people have done, I guess i'm an old fogey and just go bananas over the characters themselves and not all this other stuff. I find some things funny the fans chalk up, other things just relentlessly make me sad face.

In a way, they also motivate me to want to draw bad ass depictions of the characters - just need to get my ass in gear and do it. :C

Cool :) If it wasn't for the show, we wouldn't have the personalities that make those characters enjoyable. I do enjoy some of the hilarious fan comics I've seen along with some fanfiction, but some of the thoughts people have are just ridiculous! But if it wasn't for some fanart, I wouldn't have ever fully enjoyed Knockout.

I hate when that happens (Lazyness and distractions are my downfall) D: I personally don't mind the wait, I just go back and check out your sketches. Best badass sketches I've seen on the site.
(I am currently waiting and hoping you will draw Starscream, your sketches make him look amazing!)

I agree with you on that. The show has been so helpful aiding in that direction.

And aww, well, I just hope to get this slump kicked and what not and get back on the ball. And which Starscream do you mean? TFP is soooo one of my favorite all times now, holy woah he is a crazy thing. Lol
