As am I, my friend.

17th-19th August at the Hilton Metropole. The days between TFNations are is merely the UnTime. What matters is what happens in a well-appointed midlands conference-centric hotel just once a year.

I'll be there, and I'll have original art from Lost Light Covers, More Than Meets The Eye Pages and maybe, if I can be pushed, even Wreckers pages to sell. I'll also have the more affordable prints, this year featuring Lost Light, Wreckers Saga, a Verity Carlo/IDW 2005-2018 retrospective poster, and a few more surprises.

And there are these! Original, bespoke sketches crafted lovingly for YOU. Here's how you can get hold of the good stuff:

Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White TORSO ONLY shot is £60; add £40 for ONE additional character

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want, and an idea of the day you'll be available to collect the piece.
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters!
* I will only be able to accept CASH at TFNation, no cards. 
* You can Paypal me AT the show if you can show me your digital receipt for the transaction.
* PLEASE only order a sketch if you will be able to attend to pick it up, and, you know, pay for it.
* Seriously, this happens a LOT. It's not cool, and I will name and shame offenders!

Hi Nick, Andy 'Zh'Gingaah' Strange-Surnamed feller here - Torso of Verity please... apologies if that sounds a bit rude and also for mis-posting in the headshots to begin with!

She was there at the start, she's there at (pretty much) the end... you choose how you want to make this 'special' (my 2 jumpstarters for the price of one last year were magical!)

There Friday-ish - Monday morning. See you in a few weeks!

Ed pirrie. Godzilla. All weekend.

Eph from twitter (@Eph_iK) here!

I'd love a torso shot of Starscream & Blurr (Fayren/Sarah Stone designs) in some sort of arcade-ish feeling setting/playing arcade games haha (and yes *cough* in a slightly shippy way)

I'm at TFN all weekend but being in the Forge I'd only be able to pick up during lunch break or after Forge schedule ends on Sat-Sun.

Hi Nick,

Taking inspiration from the animated movie climax, I'd love to get a torso commission of MTMTE/LL Rodimus opening up the matrix as light and energy begins to shine and crackle out of it. One big heroic moment for our captain.

I will be at TFN for the whole weekend as well.

Many many thanks and looking forward to TFN!

Best regards,

Hello Nick!

My name is Claude! I’d love to be able to get a torso shot of Tarn, maybe he’s proudly looking at a photo of Megatron or just Megatron themed items like a toy or small figurine of him.

I’ll be at TFNation for the entire weekend :)

Best Regards and thank you!

Hi Nick.

I'd love a torso shot of Bulkhead from the Transformers Prime series.
If you could include his wrecking ball or hand cannon, that would be great.
More than happy to pay extra for these.

My name is Chris & I'll be at TFNation all weekend.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Many thanks, Chris.

Hi Nick I wonder if I could have a torso shot of 2 Characters, Optimus and Megatron, as in the following scene from Eugenesis:

Optimus Prime and Megatron lay side-by-side, Siamese twins conjoined by a pool of shallow
circuitry. Their hands were fused by a russet seam. Megatron’s big black fingers were buried deep in Prime’s palm, as if he were being comforted.

I will be at TFNation all weekend. Thanks in advance.

Hi Nick - could I please get a Nautica torso with Skids? Something romantic because I'm just a big softie that way. I'm at the con all weekend. If you're rammed with requests, please just do the full-body Spider-Girl in the other thread, but would be cool to get both. - Ross Liversidge

Dom Salvia said...

Hi Nick, I'm Dom and I'd love a Requiem Verity if you could please and thanks. I'll be there all weekend.


Kieron Farrell said...

Hi Nick, could I get a "Rodimus looking cool" please?
I'm there all weekend, and it's Kieron Farrell.

Hey Nick!

Sorry for deleting prior comment, forgot crucial info, Fox'll be there all weekend!

It's Jazz and Fox once more for another year of me not showing my face and Fox doing all th legwork! As always, we wanted to ask for two torso commissions if that's okay, but this year we're both after some of your Marvel work!

So for Fox, he's asking for your style on Rocket Raccoon admiring/enamored with/polishing a very over the top looking Looney Toons styled gun. A gun so over the top and ridiculous that Whirl would weep at the idea he will never get to pull its trigger. A gun so stupidly oversized for the raccoon it could make Galactus blush. This gun is Rocket's new baby, it likely has a name and she's a 'she'.

In all seriousness, please just have fun for this one.

For me, in keeping with all my previous years animal themes, I wanted to ask if you'd take a shot at your own style on Squirrel Girl! And so one of these pics is TF themed, if she can be holding/looking at a G1-styled squirrel? (Autobot/Decepticon? You decide!) Just a very happy looking Doreen here, whilst our unknown squirrel-bot/-con is trying - and failing - to stay cool and not blow their disguise.

We hope these are some fun ideas to let you go to town on, but, please shout if any of these ideas don't work, we're always happy to get drawings from you and can come up with some more fun!

If the ideas are okay, just please let us know if the squirrel counts as extra character - or if the gun gains sentience during drawing and becomes one - to include any extra funds for you!

Either way, hope you're going to have a great weekend there!

Hi Nick!

In honour of Mr Peter Spellos & my love of musicals, I'd love to have a torso sketch of RID Sky-Byte singing his spark out to West Side Story. If you're ok with doing speech bubbles I'd like him to be singing "I like the planet of Cybertrooon!" followed by another speech bubble from off-page singing "I know a ship you can get oooon!"

The name is Joe Powell and I'll be at TFNation Sunday only, see you there!

Unknown said...

Hi, Nick! I hope you have a fantastic TFN, and I can't wait to meet you there! My name is Erin Barnett, and I would absolutely love a torso drawing of Kaon! (Preferably looking happy - I am still hearbroken by his death) would it be possible to add some necroworld flowers too? I'll be at the convention for both Saturday and Sunday, but if it's easiest for you to have more time to get commissions finished, I can collect on the Sunday. Many Thanks, and see you soon!

Hi, Nick! My name’s Hristina. I’ll be at tfn all weekend. Could I, please, get a torso of IDW Waspinator getting surprised/frightened while drinking his energon and spilling it? Thanks in advance!

Jill Sandwich said...

Hello Nick! My name is Robin Wollenstein and I'll be at TFN on Saturday.

Could I get a torso drawing of Rodimus doing double finger guns while winking? Thank you so much!

TrebleTwenty said...

Hi Nick! I’d love a Prowl with handcuffs- not in them but sort of dangling them off one finger. I’ll be at tfn all weekend too! I’m Grace Murray, and thanks!

Unknown said...

I'd love to pre-order a commission of Springer!(I have no idea what kind of pose or emotion I want him to have, so it's totally free of your choice!) My name is Alisa Lundh and I will be a tfn the whole Saturday.

Stuart McIver said...

Hi Nick, i'd love a torso of Tarn if possible? - cheers - Stuart McIver

Oddzilla said...

Hey Nick, can I get a Powermaster Prime please? There all weekend. - Simon Odd

Jess Needs said...

Hi Nick. If you’re not too swamped by all the commissions, can I ask for Wreckers Perceptor? He’s my favourite version of Percy since Last Stand. I’ll be at TFNation all weekend. Jess N / Mush

Charl said...

Hello nick!

My name is Crystal (Charl) Parsells and I was wondering if I could get a 2-character torso of first aid and Ambulon! If I could get them in a like. Romantic pose I would absolutely be super thankful. I'm very excited to see Ambulon in your art style!

Is it okay if I have someone pick it up for me? They are attending all weekend, I can either pay you directly through PayPal or send them the money? I can send that whenever you would like: before the event or day of the event.

My email is: alfredxjones@hotmail.com and my twitter is @firsteraid if you need to get into contact with me.

Here's hoping you come to TFcon in the states so I can see you in person someday! Thank you for your time, Nick, I appreciate it either way.

When you consider animal skin, what does one think? does one see in your mind the animal skin tight jeans, the animal skin jacket and a giant, durable bike that thralls underneath you as you ride it? moviemotercyclejacket
