Megatron Beckons by Th4rlDEAL Megatron Beckons by Th4rlDEAL
I really wanted to come up with a better title for this drawing. For some reason "Megatron Beckons" sounds like the title to some lame fan-fiction or something, I don't know, but I decided it was the most obvious description of what's going on in the image.... so... yeah.

"Give me the Cube boy, and I may let you live to be my pet" in Frank Welker's voice would probably be the best phrase of dialogue to assign to this pic... and Speaking of the M. Bay movie, drawing this picture suddenly made me sad that "Movie Megatron" is such a buggy looking monstrosity since one of the things I always felt was compelling about (G1) Megs was that he's almost more Human than Prime is in some ways; either physically or idealistically. But enough about that...

Note: The Decepticon symbol on his chest was not dawn by me, I found it on the internet through a google image search. Thanks whoever you are I borrowed it from! ^^;

Beautifully done! And the title is fine.

G1 Megs tried to save Cybertron, but just didn't care who he squashed in the process. XD

I agree with you about Bayformers Megatron. What were they thinking?

Thanks! :D

On the subject of thinking, I don't believe Bay actually thinks... he just takes other people's ideas and then filters them through a computer program that makes them appealing to his ego and then sells the crap out of it. : P

Okay, that's enough, I'm being mean I know. ^^;

lol...hey, one artist to another u are entitled to express your opinion. you know, this is one reason i haven't put my work up on the net, whether my own site or others...i know i shouldn't be so chicken but i will hurt someone if they still my work. hey, at least if it is true that mb and other using ideas of others they should at least acknowledge it in the credits or the behind the scenes stuff they always do at the end of the movies. just my opinion. :)

No, you're not being mean at all. It's true. The Bayformers series smelled like a money well and it was. The first Bayformer movie wasn't all that bad though.

I know there's like a... photoshop elements 8 or 9 at this point, but I can't afford the upgrade; 7 came free with my tablet though, so I'm not complaining. :meow:

::: applauds::: A brilliant image of Megatron. Quite the snapshot of him. Yes, Megatron Beacons sounds VERY ideal and perfect. ;) After all, he beacons for all his Decepticons to rise up and follow, and take control and obtain Energon!
All Hail MEGATRON!!!

This is a good peice! I love Megatron's pretty face and the perspective is interesting and believable. I think the title fits well, the gesture of his left hand, facial feature, and even the way his fusion cannoned servo is brought out to the side as if to say, I'm not here to blast you... yet.
Good job!

Thanks! :D This is one of those pieces that started as a sketch but "Got complicated"... That said though, I'm very glad it did... And also, I'm glad you like the body language; it's something I work very hard on and one of my favorite things to study.
I get very tired of seeing comic books that have stiff and unexpressive gestures; it always surprises me how often it it crops up even in the big "Triple-A" titles.

Okay, first of all this "Don't worry Mr. Bay... I probably won't hurt you... MUCH" made my soda jettison out of my nose. Now, having recovered from the nasal CocaCano, I've spent the last ten minutes just gawking at this. Why? Because it's fricking awesome.

Enough with the talk already, favespam is imminent.
Megatron for president!
