Robots… they’ve always fascinated me ! First encounter when I was young, was with those 80ies cartoons… like Grendizer for instance.
But the one series that was always around was the one called Transformers and yes they kicked ass :).
Ok youth sentiment here.
But the Transformers franchise got passed me without any notice… not something that happens very often, I liked the series, but wasn’t that all to much interested in the toys for boys back then.
But behold, with the release of the movie last year, my interest got kindled again !!
So much so, that I took up some comics that are about these fine robots. And I have to say, there is one young guy that can actually bring them alive on paper !
I’m talking about Don Figueroa. In my opinion he is actually a reference for getting the transformers looks and feel on paper the right way !
For me it would almost seem impossible to draw live metallic robots, but he does it in such a way it’s almost believable. Nothing but admiration for his style.
Just look for yourself 😉
