This was done entirely for the humor of it. Wheeljack is known for having his inventions and experiments blow up spectacularly, usually in his face. He’s an engineer and inventor, as well as a scientist. To the Decepticons, he’s the Mad Scientist of the Autobots. Wheeljack is one of the characters I like, but I couldn’t resist making a joke of the reference¬†pose. As soon as I saw it, I couldn’t picture anything else but Wheeljack post-explosion.

The original sketch was done on medium tooth sketch paper, cleaned up with three layers of tracing paper, and the top layer was scanned onto my laptop. It was then cleaned up and colored in GIMP, in a four and a half hour period. It was completed on 4/1/2017. The artwork is copyright to D.E.A. Grant, while Wheeljack and the Transformers are copyright to Hasbro and Takara.
