So as I sat in my hotel room (on a "work trip"), randomly doodling whatever comes into my head (mostly robots) to pass time, I started to consider the wealth of source material I have reluctantly happened upon with my own characters. Most of it isn't by me.
Weird huh? To me it is... but in a good way!
Backtracking a little bit... I created a couple of Transformers fancharacters way back in 98/99. I sketched them, role played them, and wrote some pretty terrible fan fiction for them. They were always my muses though. Over the years though they've taken on a life of their own and despite my own efforts, I'm pretty sure they've shown up more in artwork or stories by other people. I am incredibly grateful for that! I think I've learned more about my own characters and their development through the eyes of others than I have through my own. I have no idea how that happened now!
The thing I'm trying to say though is... Thank you!
If you have drawn, written, colored, inked, 3d modeled, made cameo appearances for, or even just liked and commented on my characters over the past few years, thank you so much! I did say these characters were my muse... but really it's you guys.
Just wanted to get that out.
