I just absolutely love this mosaic! The story's wonderful and the art is gorgeous, especially the last panel.

Even though it's no longer new, I can still say great job! :)

A blue albino eagle. =D

My only excuse is that I was trying to keep the honorble G1 tradition of mass shifting. ^^;

^^ see? It's always good to toss in a loophole. Freak genes DO happen. <3


YAY. We all love the original size-shifting style of the early-mid 80's <3

Ignoring the fact the bird would have to be colossal or else Silverbolt incredibly small for this to work in real life, I absolutely love the two panels with it resting on his finger and then flying away.

G1 was full of mass shifting and inconsistant sizes, a little more won't hurt. =D

I tried to make the bird as small as possible w/out comprimising it's symbolism, but I suppose it still is monstrously huge. =D

Glad you liked it. :aww:

Lol. That's true. And hey, if others hadn't pointed it out first I wouldn't have noticed, to be honest. The effect of those panels is so fanstatic.

What realy makes it work is the lens flare and the orange sky, it brings out the work even more.

This is superb!!! Lindsay, you did an awesome job for this just being something that you wanted to do for a break. XD

Instant fav, and yes, those are some big birds. Kinda reminds me of the movie, where the glasses were really big as well.

I gotta say that coloring this was absolutely challenging and great for me, had so much fun doing my art on such expressive lines and moving story. very uplifting to me and may be anyone who have had fear of anything and needed to simply ...breakaway. gotta thank Josh for sending me this particular mosaic as it was the very first one I have done. means a lot to me.

Thanks for coloring this! When Josh first showed it to me I think I may have fainted. lol

Endlessly grateful to your contribution to this piece.


And what's really funny? I litterally drew this on a whim.lol. It was after I had started the art for another piece and I wanted to take a break. I had the idea of drawing Silverbolt (my fav arielbot) and it kind of just...developed this way. I wrote the script for it afterwards. lol

This is why the Mosaics are brilliant.
Short simple and sweet stories, action packed stories, character pieces, morality tales, there is literally no boundary.

Funnily enough, I'm reminded of the song of the same title by Kelly Clarkson, this verse especially (maybe not all of it):

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly,
I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky,
And I'll make a wish, take a chance,
Make a change, and break away.

Heh. I didn't realize it reading the story, but yeah...those birds must be enormous...

Awesome story, though. I always liked Silverbolt and his lil' phobia. He should hang out with Lightspeed, of the Throttlebots.

Beautiful artwork, too.
