Me Grimlock! by el-grimlock Me Grimlock! by el-grimlock
Finally saw TF4 and I must say, that was not grimlock ... in my personal opinion, I still think the design line of the movie wasted a chance to make these new transformers look good, even if it is a movie for children.
It should not be that hard to make the characters are slightly similar to the original, all the different animation series succeeded.
Well. regards!!!

I actually thought the Age of Extinction Grimlock looked badass.

Although I loved that movie, I admit Grimlock's original design has it's perks.

Very good look for him; a good blend of a more realistic aesthetic with his traditional elements.

Personally I loved his look in the movie, though I disliked how silver and gray they were; missed an opportunity for the classic colorations.

I like the Movie Grimlock, but I don't like how they portrayed him as an Animal for Optimus to...


SlavicWolf Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Agreed. Sadly Grimlock was the best looking of them all.....:(

Slap some sharp metal pieces and a flamethrower on the T-rex from Jurassic Park and you get AOE Grimlock. That said, I do have to admit I was glad they were at least in the movie, but I was heavily disappointed that they didn't even have any speaking lines. The hell, guys...
Regardless, I LOVE this design. The presence of red, the bulk, and the sword are the selling points for me. Amazing job! :D

Love Grimlock. Awesome stuff right here.

But these movies are not for children (PG12)
I personally think this incarnation of the Transformers Universe is aweful.
Like I said when the first movie came out: the Jetix Transformers Animated show beats the movie both in plot and in recognizable robots (as opposed to a large mass of interlocking gears that could be one or two or even five individual transformers).

I liked his design in TF4, but I hate how he was portrayed in the movie.

Es una pieza hermosa! No puedo esperar para tenerte para algún evento nuevamente y tener una impresión de esto!!

Muchos saludos, excelente artista!

I honestly liked Grimlock's TF4 design. Sure, it didn't look like G1 Grimlock, but different isn't neccesarily bad.

i admit the producers could have given grimlock his sword and a speaking role in the movie yet they did give us a nice fight between grimlock and optimus
Ava-Lightwing Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
Nice! I love the way you did the silhouettes of the other Dinobots!
VicDeLaCruz Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014  Student General Artist
Fantastic! WHile I liked the Grimlock movie design as a standalone "robotic T-Rex", it didn't feel like Grimlock to me either. I also find it a bit sketchy people saying that it is "difficult" to make the robots look good without rendering them all "realistic" when most of the work was done in the Cybertron video games. That Grimlock was perfect, and all the transformers had realistic detail and were still recognizable as themselves. If they had used that design ethic then it would have been fantastic (for the transformers designs at least, not the movie plot itself).

Tf-SeedsOfDeception Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
What you said about these movies' failures. But they are not even kids-oriented, and that's the tragedy (what's with those dogs-having-sex and the scrotum jokes and all those other low-level innuendos). They are aimed at a teen audience (who doesn't buy toys any longer, so it's double failure).
Just my two cents.
BumbleG15 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
Awesome job! And the dinobots werent given justice at all in the film because Bay just doesnt care.
NicokBT Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
 a todo esto , no se  como trabajan los diseñadores   en las pelis de transformers , pero  me da que no conocen la idea básica de re-diseño , si le cambias todos los detalles clave que hacen a un  personaje  identificable , dejas de tener ese personaje
NicokBT Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
completamente de acuerdo  , ni los colores ni siquiera el visor, y lo peor es que  va  con una maza , y no con su espada

its hard to make a robot not look like a cartoon when modeled after something that is a living creature. I think they did a really good job rendering a "realistic" version of Grimlock and the rest of the transformers.

Great Job.
Loving the look you have going on for Grimlock. Powerful & Aggressive.
He has always been one of my favorites since the original series in the 80's.

si hollywood apesta! y como era de esperarse michael bay nos violo a todos con esa pelicula...en fin.
la ilustracion te quedo genial. =)
soaringphoenix86 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
This is absolutely awesome. Grimlock looks likes the badass that he is, and I think that the "King" himself would be please with this piece. Really like how you have the original Dinobots in the background too. Very nice touch. I agree, the designers for TF4 missed a great opportunity where the Dinobots were concerned. But remember, Grimlock was the only Dinobot that they could have given that nod to the G1 'verse as all the other Dinobots were brand new. Maybe if there is a TF5, the Dinobots will speak and tweak their looks a bit. LOL since they are currently sight-seeing on Earth, maybe they'll add a bit of flare after taking in the local culture.
jorun1981 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
Totally agree with you they did messed up with the dinobots I hoped they would come out better as they really did. I love how you draw them. That´s how they should look.

Ah! Wonderful, love the bright reds and oranges with the dark steel greys. Yeah they missed out on a real good Dinobot designs... :( Oh well.

Another reason.. not to watch that movie, yeah... :/ I dunno, I never thought the "Bay-Verse" transformers looked cool.
This style that you so lovingly present; would have been pure win.
