Transformers: IGNITION - Page 4 by KrisSmithDW Transformers: IGNITION - Page 4 by KrisSmithDW
(Page updated August 5th, 2013)

A closer shot of Cybertron's surface, almost like a comic version of a zoom-in, getting closer to the eventual action on the ground with each page. This won't be gotten into for a bit, but I wanted to hint at Cybertron having a "reputation" throughout the universe, and has a lot to do with why they haven't been too far out of Cybertron's little corner of the universe for quite some time. There is a history, but we'll get into that a bit later...

The Transformers' war spreading throughout the universe is a greatly-thought-out concept.

A universal reputation for war, now that is quite interesting. This comic already has me on the edge of my seat. Again, your Cybertron looks amazing. Simple in appearance but detailed in its own way. Excellent.

There's a very good reason why, in I guess this iteration of their recent history, they've stayed for the most part in Cybertron's orbit (until they hit Earth, of course) when in past eras of the planet they were a bit more "galactic" and not just sticking to home.  But you'll have to wait and see... :D

quick little grammatical correction. That should read "as a species" not "as species".

ah crap, I missed that! Thank you so much for pointing it out, I wouldn't have seen it otherwise :D I'm... a crappy editor, lol. Especially when I'm almost falling asleep on the keyboard trying to get the pages done and uploaded before sleeping, lol :P I'll have it fixed soon! :D

Nice view of Cybertron, and very ominous intro

Thank you :D There's a good reason for the ominous intro, but it's a story thread for a bit later on, but it will be explained in time :D

Glad you like it :D It was a little difficult, I had to edit a LOT on the fly (which is why I missed that past/present tense part in one bit of text, lol) because I really quickly realized I had a hard time with prose type stuff, lol. I've always been more a character dialogue writer, so I was revising it like CRAZY. XD

Glad you like Cybertron's look :D

I didn't even see that first error by the time I got around to reading the first couple of pages xD
I know what ya mean! Character dialogues are so easy because... Well, nothing really matters grammar wise xD
I still loved how you wrote the premise for Cybertron :)

No problem! I enjoy the simplistic style you gave it in comparison to other cybertrons before yours. ^^

Cybertron was HARD to figure out a look for it, especially when it had to fit the overall aesthetic I was going for.  I overthink things to much, lol

Wow the Transfomers aren't well liked in the universe I take it? I suppose this would be explored later?
Reply
:iconkrissmithdw:
KrisSmithDW Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, not liked much at all :D Will be explored a bit later on, they've not really spread outside of Cybertron's general galaxy for a long while due to some events in their past, from before the current day Autobots time-frame :D

Thats the only thing I fighting with myself about with posting these pages and why it took a bit longer than I wanted it to: no robot mode until page 6. I HAD to have it done that far before posting, I'd never be forgiven! :P
