The Bludgeoning by dyemooch The Bludgeoning by dyemooch
Inspired by *noprips's awesomeness, and based off of the King of King's, Derrick J. Wyatt's, sketch here: [link]
Drawn because I haven't drawn anything for just myself in a while.

Anywho. I imagine he runs around with his fellow Seacons, looking for the lost treasure of the ancient warrior "Piranacon". There's something that Bludgeon knows about the Piranacon legend and his Seacon crew... but what is it!!?? What's in that box!?! Could it be the Spark of Combination that they need?!?! But before he opens that chest up, he needs a certain robot girl's Allspark power to open it! LOOK OUT AUTOBOTS! D:!!!

lol. I'm a dorks.

Transformers belong to Hasbro/TakaraTomy
Original Bludgeon design by Derrick J. Wyatt
This piece of stuff by me :D!

Really cool!

If Bludgeon DID make it on the show, I could imagine them going a pirate-esque route with him, and this concept seems pretty spot-on. ^^

Well Ill be. You are getting to a certain point with this astonishing understandingof DJW's work. But uh there is not much G1 referencing. Try to make us see that some parts of him form G1 are still there even in DJW's style and please use a less primitive looking cannon.

I actually didn't reference any G1 with this(aside from anything implied in Wyatt's original sketch); I went more Armada than G1(since, to me, personally, I see a bit of Armada Megatron in the sketch).
The primitive cannon is intentional on my part; it's to look like a cannon from a pirate ship. I felt that it was funnier for him to have an antiquated weapon like that.

Seriously. This is one of my favorite pieces EVER on this webste. EVER. I'm pretty sure I've already commented on this before, but it must be said again. I've been trying for like a year and a half to piece together the necessary parts from various action figures to make my own Bludgeon as accurate to this as possible, because you took a tiny pencil sketch from Mr. Wyatt and made THIS- which as far as I'm concerned is the OFFICIAL TFA Bludgeon.

hello mr. awesomesauce!
first and foremost, this piece is ridiculously amazing! you've taken mr. wyatt's sketch and really taken it to a even higher level. furthermore, the seemingly simple additions like the smoke in the background really make this piece dramatic and awesome
anyways, i'm working on a transformers project and would love to use ur iteration of mr. wyatt's design in it and (possibly) also ur backstory for this piece. thanks!

He's very cool. But his kibble makes him look a little like he still transforms into a tank. Is that the case?

dyemooch Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, he's supposed to have a tank-like alt. mode that I'm too lazy to configure/draw; I'm not sure if DJW intended for this, but I noticed a few similarities between his Bludgeon sketch and Armada Megatron; most likely this was coincidental, but I played off it :)

I think an amphibious tank would be appropriate, under the circumstances. He's really an awesome completion of DJW's design. I'm torn between him, and a samurai version by another contributor as to which I would rather see in Animated, but I must admit that I'm leaning towards yours.

it would've been nice if he was in the cartoon, and if they got the guy who played Barbossa to voice him, but the show came and went. hopfully he's in the new season 4 comic book they talked about! anyway awesome pic, dude!

I feel like so much backstory can be fleshed from this character!!! AAAAAAAAH!!!

Where'd Lockdown get his hook-hand from? BLUDGEON!!! Who had to go and replace it, haha.

Who took Bludgeon's eye, and why? LOCKDOWN, because it had telescoping capabilities!!!

"Arr, Lockdown you say? I had me a nasty run-in with that scurvy cog. Took me hand? hahaha, no, that's still here *TRANSFORMS HOOK TO HAND*... took me good hook though, me good eye as well."



It's perfect, cuz it encompasses the age old ninja vs pirate rivalries!!!

:icondyemooch:
dyemooch Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Hahaha! It doesn't escape me that Lockdown and Bludgeon have a lot in common. I assume that after Lockdown stole from Bludgeon, Bludgeon had to seek out Swindle to get replacement pieces.
Bludgeon's original hook hand(now Lockdown's) was probably made out of some ancient blade from the early Metallikato masters- stolen and forged into a strong weapon that Lockdown HAD to have. Of course, I didn't think about a telescoping eye that Lockdown stole- good on ya' mate! XD

I'd love to eventually do a story on Bludgeon and his crew(the Seacons, Cannonball, Magnificus, and Ga'mede) searching for the ancient Cybertronian sea warrior, God Neptune's, "Piranacon" armor- stealing pieces that could essentially combine several of his crew members into a powerful God-like warrior, but needing Sari's Allspark power to release the main piece that Optimus' crew had aboard the Ark/Omega Supreme without knowing.
Of course, there would need to be a Pirate v. Ninja thing going on when Bludgeon realizes Lockdown has God Neptune's helmet.
I dunno. The idea is a little crappy and needs work, but either which, I would have love to have seen what TFA would have done with DJW's Bludgeon concept(if they used it at all, that is!). One could hope that maybe IDW Publishing could do a "fourth season" of Animated in the form of a comic maxi-series(probably 12-24 issues?).
BLAH BLAH BLAH fangush. XD

I don't think the reply from my iphone published, dang...

anyways, I think your idea is a GREAT foundation for a story!!! But I know how you feel, fearing crossing the line between a great idea and an over the top fangush :D

I think though, with your permission, I'm gonna use this idea as a foundation for a comic script. I've been thinking of opening panels already, and even some from the final battle scenes. For example:

-why does Bludgeon have a historically Earthen cannon on his shoulder? I've got that covered, haha

-Why does he have a peg leg? perhaps nothing happened to his real leg, but rather he had it replaced- installed to hide something sharp within... :D :D :D

have you shown this to Mr Wyatt yet? his Twitter is still active, I'm sure he'd be stoked to see what you've done with his sketch.

Furthermore, how would you feel about a possible TFA comic Collab? I just saw this on tfw2005 and I think with the combined creative storytelling, character designs, and artwork of a few people, we could pump out a GREAT lil story arc!!!

I haven't shown this to him, but I @ replied towards him and his original Bludgeon piece when I posted the twitpic of it. I don't think he's seen it, but I'm not going to shove it in his face or nothing :)

I don't know about a collab... I have a habit of getting excited for projects, work interrupting said projects, and my motivation to continue with them just kind of plop. I still have commissions I need to finish when I get the time, too, lol.
However, I can't say I wouldn't be for a collab of sorts. It's a very interesting idea that I feel could be explored and, with the right time, successfully executed :)
