Devastator vs Dinobots-Color by LivioRamondelli Devastator vs Dinobots-Color by LivioRamondelli
This painting was a challenge, due to how many characters I was trying to fit in. I probably did at least ten different layouts that were each pretty detailed before finally settling on this one. I was going for a bit more of a nightmarish scene this time around, and I wanted the fight to seem pretty equal between sides. I had a lot of fun texturing up both Devastator and Grimlock, which is becoming my favorite part of the painting process. in the end, this one was a lot of fun!

Holy crap!  You included Snarl and Sludge!  Awesome!

A classic showdown that never gets old, and you made it feel brand new all over again!  Excellent job with the lighting and textures!

As a fan of the Dinobots, this is certainly terrifying.  Devastator is such a huge and ruthless powerhouse here, effortlessly stomping Sludge and throwing Slag around with one hand.  It's definitely scary, and a little heartbreaking, to see the Dinobots mount a hopeless fight against this Goliath.

If IDW has anything like this in store for Primacy they've officially printed a license to take my money.

Man, you rock. The layout is just gorgeous, and the pop of orange in that sea of blue just really grabbed me. My next thought was, "cool textures!" Then I read your comment. :D So FYI, the texturing pays off -- I love it. I just love everyone's body language here. You read a kind of desperation in everyone, maybe even a hint of fear in Grimlock's stance, as he realizes that his Dinobots aren't coming out on top for once. It's quite a moving piece.

Thanks a lot for the kind words, really appreciate it! I was certainly hoping to get across a tension in the image, that indeed the Dinobots might not win.
