The Ark Addendum - Autobot Bunker
Howdy, y'all! Last week I got the first draft of The G.I. Joe Field Manual to IDW Publishing for editing. That's why, I'm sorry to say, I skipped the Addendum. Busy with deadline pressure. This week, though, despite my impending flight, I wanted to bring you a nice one. I thought the Autobot Bunker from Auto-Berserk rather fit the bill.
I did something I don't always do... I left in all the original notes. They're pretty tiny, but I actually didn't shrink them at all from my originals. These models come from Paul Davids, who was Production Coordinator on the Sunbow Transformers cartoon. He had a big pile of mostly landscapes, 3-5 to a page. Obviously they were considerably smaller than the original art, which would be at least a full 8.5x11 page, sometimes more. Usually the notes don't add much, but in this case I thought they gave interesting insight and so I left them in.
Hope you enjoy!
In other news, I fly off to jolly old England in less than eight hours, attending the Roll Out Roll Call convention as a guest. If you can get to Southampton this weekend, I'd love to meet you. (I get back next Tuesday night, so I may have to skip again next week depending on how busy I am and how much internet access I have in the U.K. )
