Transformers: IGNITION - Page 12 by KrisSmithDW Transformers: IGNITION - Page 12 by KrisSmithDW
Ah, now, HERE we go :D Optimus Prime in action! :D This one took me a LONG time to figure out as it's full of a lot of things I realized I hadn't actually done in Flash before and had to figure out on the fly. Damn you, action scenes! :P But this is a good example of one of the main reasons I'm doing this series: PRACTICE. There's TONS of things I've never really done all that much (or at all) that I really need to work on when it comes to sequentials. So I get to have fun AND train at the same time! WOO! :P I still have FAR to go, but this is definitely a good start for something like this! :D

Wow, you did a great job here. It looks awesome. If your action scenes look this good now, I would love to see how they improve as this comic advances.

Thats what I'm hoping for, lol.  this is basically a giant learning experience for me.  This page took me a long time as there were lots of things I hadn't really sat down and focused on.  Little break from the action after this, gotta get the plot progressing and get them to Earth soon :D

Unfortunately, I have no control over that as it is quite time consuming and isn't the only thing I'm working on day to day.  I have to juggle it with home/family related priorities and other art related projects.  I want to have shorter and less frequent gaps in between page releases, but I can't really do too much about it when family related things (like the past couple weeks) happen unexpectedly and at the worst and most inconvenient times.  This is why I don't have a set schedule, family stuff always has a habit of popping up without warning, but I'd rather have some delays than not do the comic at all.

Two things I noticed: First, Optimus actually got hit at least five times, and doesn't seem to care. This seems a lot more believable than blasts flying everywhere without anybody getting hit, and it also helps show just how tough Prime is. Second, each of those Seekers lasted one panel. ONE PANEL. Just in case Optimus wasn't bad aft enough already.

I am loving this comic.

Glad you like it so far!  More to come soon :D

Of all the pages, this is the one I actually sat down and REALLY planned out.  I really wanted Prime just wading into the gunfire (which its hard to tell, but if you look at the last panel he's actually been hit by a few more shots by the time he reaches the 2nd panel, lol  lots more scratchies on his face plate and his helmet n stuff) because, well, that's just how Optimus is, he knows he can take it, and he needs to get to Bumblebee no matter what, so thar ya go, lol.

Well, there's one more of the 3 Seekers left, you'll find out what happens to him in the next page :P

Actually Barricade pops up pretty early on Earth :D  I needed to prop the Decepticon ranks up, the Autobots start off with the original 18 from 1984, and original 84 Decepticons are, well, technically 5.  Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker & Skywarp.  The Cassette-cons are really more of extensions of Soundwave in a way so really the major cons are a whole 5.  So they get heavily padded out and Barricade is one of them :D
