Minotaur vs ghouls by Pachycrocuta

First...Minotaurs are cool! that outta my system. I like this Jonathan. You have successfully combined pen-line and brushwor...

Patience can pay off....and you have all been very patient. Over the past five weeks or so I have diligently collected a series of pics from those who worked so hard on this Transformer Project. As promised...I am posting them here for everyone to see. The results are quite satisfying from an artistic standpoint, and also quite spectacular!

I want to take a moment to make it clear that I worked on these beauties as part of a TEAM. For all intents and purposes, I was a glorified parts-maker. The task of creating this Optimus and Bumblebee was taken on by Symmetry Products Group International, under the direction of Julie Lancia. On Kiev and his sculpting team are true masters of what they do. THEY are the artists who are responsible for the overall look and presentation of the finished sculpt. There are far too many contributors to name (close to twenty-five sculptors, fabricators, painters, and finish-people), but Julian Osorio deserves special note for the incredible work he did on the heads and hands, as well as his contribution to the fabulous paint job!

So...without further ado...ENJOY!
