The Last Light 001 - Words Will Never Hurt Me by AndyTurnbull
The Last Light 001 - Words Will Never Hurt Me
The idea was nagging around in my head so I had to get it down on paper and it looks like I have another TF gag/serial strip in the offing.

This time casting off my Marvel UK leanings and into the IDW era.

And after a long enforced break I am back with the latest page.

The delay was due to my committments for Auto Assembly, as well as assembling a non-Transformers comic and getting it available for Glasgow Comic Con in July. If you fancy reading some non TF work then head over to Ark Comics and you can find out more and buy a copy.

COMMENTARY

Back to the pencils and inks with this one, as I tested out a tachikawa G pen and some Deleter paper as opposed to my usual materials. Relatively happy with the results.

Panel 1 – while the speech is all about Prime bearing his soul, I felt Prowl should be the focus of it, as it’s not often that Prime will bear his soul to another, and to someone as repressed as Prowl so it was fun to try and capture his reaction.

Panel 3 – I wanted Prime’s restraining hand to still be tentative, rather than confident and firm, he’s still mending fences after all.

Panel 5 – I’d toyed with having a big emotional Prowl face and splitting the panel into two, but the handshake was a better image to close the page off with in my opinion.

COMMENTARY

Panel 3 has a wee nod to the Action Master toys.  I wanted  a profile shot of Prowl running out and nearly into Prime and originally I thought I would have Optimus with a hand raised towards the door button on Prowl’s quarters, but it would either mean being hidden behind Prowl or obscuring his face so I changed it and left it so his arm is in the position of his toy.

COMMENTARY

As I’d already done the recap images during Grimlock’s journey to consciousness, I avoided doing the same thing here instead, just focusing on Prowl as much as possible, keeping it as internal as I could.  The one exception was the scene of Grimlock and Prowl together, seeing as how they were quite pivotal to the latter stages of the Marvel run I felt I needed to show them sharing the same space.

The second page in a row drawn in Manga Studio, this time I remembered to install my custom MS4 brushes from Frenden.

COMMENTARY

Panel 1 – a reference to the art accompanying the original text story by Stewart “Staz” Johnson.

Panel 4 – yes that little technician is the same type of mechanoid that Grimlock originally met when he was on Hydrus Four searching for Nucleon. and yes he is in a white coat.

This page was again, done digitally this time in Manga Studio 4 ex.  I think I may upgrade to 5 soon, but it was pretty useful.

Another Time and Place was originally written by Simon Furman for the final Marvel UK annual as a prose story, this is my comic adaptation.
