The Ark Addendum - Blood's Transformation

Hello, and welcome to another edition of The Ark Addendum, the follow-up to  Transformers: The Complete Ark (order it today!)  book of G1 character models.  This week, in honor of Iván's portrayal of Blood yesterday, I figured I'd dip further into the Masterforce file and find something with him.  Wouldn't you know it, I haven't featured his extended Transformation yet.

It's a rather nice extended transformation at that.  I never tire of pointing out that these were internal reference documents, not designed for publication. Despite that, look how dynamic the drawings are, especially steps three and six.  The sense of motion in three, and especially the excitement of the jet taking off in six is pretty impressive.  Really, one could easily have ended the drawing at five, since the alt mode is fully realized.  Instead the artist gave us this lovely final drawing.

Beautiful! Three weeks running, you're really spoiling us Masterforce fans. Thanks a lot, Jim!
