Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Aaron Limonick, an American illustrator who proves great in the thought 'A concept artist would be a great gig' - is a hell of an understatement. What would you know him from? How about Tony Hawk or Transformers: War for Cyberton?
Don't you love those massive Transformer battles where you try to identify all the characters? Remember to click to enlarge - to fully get the genius of this one, you're going to have to!
I'm not sure what stamps it's authority on my mind most a) Aaron's cosmic colours b) the cool crops you can make zooming in on your favourite characters like Soundwave or c) the match-up's involved - forget Prime vs 'tron, check out Omega Supreme vs Trypticon!
I originally chose these two because one nailed the scale that made the original Venom such a great addition to the Spidey-verse, and the other - well it's Nightcrawler, 'nuff said.
Notice how when you place them side-by-side, with the dark coming in from the edges of both, Kurt starts to look a little more sinister than usual and seems to share a likeness with the symbiote.
'And so we started with men of metal, we close with men of mettle'...
