That's Enough by illmatar That's Enough by illmatar
When Elita decides it's quitting time, it's quitting time.

Not done with this one, but I probably never will be...the background is virtually untouched, but warm fuzzy pictures just don't hold my interest very long.

Art and story - mine..

Transformers characters - Hasbro's

Character from the pages of Maelstrom - 9 full B&W comics and a few thousand pages of fan-fiction. Rated M for violence and language - not slash.

Heh. No worries. My feelings don't bruise that easily. I redid her. I use her all the time and the pink Statue of Liberty look did not fly with me. If nothing else I have one character in particular who would take those handles and spin her tail pipe to the floor first thing. Here ya go: [link]

It is a very intimate protrait of them. I think Elita-1 would be the only bot to pull Optimus away from work with out too much of an argument. Even with proportion problems it is a good picture. Thank you for sharing all your wonderfully dark yet alluring pictures of TFs I absolutely love your work and I read the first 9 of your B&W comics and LOVED it. I will have to read the rest of your texts as well. I am hooked!

Thank you...that was the idea. She has turned out to be one of my favorite characters to write for - she gets away with stuff no one else does. Even Rodi. I'm glad you enjoyed the comics too! Thanks for letting me know. Hopefully, the text stories will hold up too. Thanks again!

She would just sneak up and grab him by the antennae to get him away from work.

A couple things: Prime's hand looks a bit off-centre where it connects to his arm; the perspective on his insignia is wrong (it looks like his shoulder is a block of gelatin with the symbol floating inside); there's something weird going on with his index finger (I think it might be the lengths of the different joints); and Elita's thumb is too long. Looks like there's an extra joint in it.

Optimus seems to enjoy having his 'antennae' played with. I wonder if it's like getting a head massage.

Awesome job! I can completely picture Elita having to pull Optimus away from his never-ending URGENT tasks. :)

Is the above-mentioned fan fiction on-line anywhere?
Reply
:iconillmatar:
illmatar Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008
Thanks! Even Op needs a break now and then. As for the story, it's on my gallery page. The first 9 chapters are in folders - those are the B&W comics. The text fiction is also in folders on the gallery under Maelstrom text. Warning - it's a Looooong read.

Heh...sounds like a plan. Also be warned it is known to cause nightmares, nose bleeds, and brain hemorrhages. Perhaps it is best to just run while you can. ;-)

In that case I might save it until school-craziness dies down. Or until I feel like procrastinating. A lot. :D

This is soooo cute! I absolutely adore the fluff of this picture ^^ It also gives us a chance to see more of Elita. I actually like the dim background because the focus is the two of them. Your coloring is awesome (well duh).

Op's insignia is white I believe, isn't it? :+fav:
