King the predacons! Fearless decepticon ruthless and destructive.
So like always this is where I tell you about all my notes and all my plans on how this drawing came to be. None of the above happened this time around this time I went completely different and tried to embrace the random as it were I only had two themes in my head and that was 1.lion and 2.samurai
So it's probably quite easy to tell I cheated a little and used my drift sketches as the basis for razorclaw but the only thing that's left on the final product is the doors.
Because of my absence I really felt I should stepup and deliver a near perfect rendition of my favorite decepticon and call me biased I feel I delivered I wanted him to look deadly but strong I drew inspiration from cons like the dreads and also the predacons and this was the outcome I wanted the head to be quite unique from my previous drawings something not human like but quite ferocious then as I tried many times to incorporate a lions mane I felt I really delivered on that part I tried using a visor like G1 but it really didn't suit. Then I looked at G1 I liked the the look of his lion mode the most so I borrowed the G1 look of the feet and used it in my drawingthen to add emphasis on the prowess I gave him hind legs like a lion. Then if you look on his shoulder there's a Chinese character ot means king I felt that was quite creative as is the rising Sun decal on the car a little homage to the birthplace of transformers. Then as I looked to the dreads I saw lots of spines and spikes but nothing too exciting so I gave him spikes in his hips and spiked ribs also then I thought of the cybertron lion character and liked the idea of am over sized claw as a weapon but instead of it being a seperate thing I decided to just have his actuall hand to be the big claw itself. Call me biased again I probably sound awfull but I am so happy with this character and I really enjoyed revisiting this old favourite of mine which I have drawn and submitted on here several times now. So hey let me know what you guys think! Love to hear back from you all I've missed the feedback enormously. And if you happen to look through my gallery and think I should revisit an old drawing at all then let me know! Personally I'm thinking either outback or rack n ruin
