TFA Mosaic: Impossible? by Shikamaru2186 TFA Mosaic: Impossible? by Shikamaru2186
Also viewable at [link]

I can't tell you how long I've been waiting to post this.

I made this after discovering :icontransformers-mosaic: It's an amazing collection of one-page comics that act as "lost episodes" of sorts. It is endorsed by IDW (though none are recognized as continuity). I wanted to make one for TFA (most were for Cybertron or G1), and even though there were REALLY good ones, there were few. So I did one on Bumblebee, less focusing on humor and more on inspiration. I was feeling rather empowered at the time, I think XP

This was also my first time drawing Optimus. So please don't kill me if he looks horrid TT^TT

I am happy to have been "published" with a bunch of other talented artists. I am currently working on a mosaic involving Swindle with :iconsuzie-chan:, though it's going unfortunately slow XP (sorry, suzie!!!!). Keep an eye out for that.

Pencilled, inked and CG'd in Adobe Photoshop CS3

Bumblebee, Optimus Prime (c) Cartoon Network/Hasbro
Title inspired by the song "Impossible" from Rogers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella"

Constructive criticism is welcomed and appreciated, as always!! :D

A good Mosaic I think this goes really well with BumbleBee's attitude. I really like how you have him gazing at the stars as he thinks this. I also like how when he think of Optimus as a leader he pictures him the the heat of battle, which really fits him. :) Awesome job! :thumbsup:

Optimus means "the best" in Latin.

Prime means "first".

I just felt like you should know.

Oh an this is an epic picture. It makes Bee seem like one of those shounen heroes

I had a feeling that was what his name boiled down to. He and Ultra Magnus have rather redundant names, yes? (If I'm translating Ultra Magnus right XP)

And thanks! I was actually kind of going for that effect. Perhaps a little too much early Naruto in my system at the time :D

I'm sure ultra means about the same thing as optimus, and magnus means huge, so yeah.

Read it as a western comic.

Whoa owo

That's brilliantly executed owo
Love how you've made the whole one page comic go with Bumblebee's contemplations over the "Impossible" o3o
