I think that is just nice!
:nod:Your style of choice is very intriguing; body structure, colouring, etc.

People have gotta try something different before they judge:judge:, and now that I’ve tried, I would like to see a little more like them. It’s would definitely bring more opinions one the style.

Now if this were animated, I can imagine their movement being a lot smoother then the recent TF series. (Comment, not complaint to anything!)

:matrixfight:Looks like they’re ready to kick aft!:giggle:

Don't let it get to yah Cheeks, there is a rumor over at the DonMurphy.net Transformers message board that these are the designs (or similar) for the new Transformers: Heroes cartoon, and with true fanatical zeal, they (for the most part) attack anything that isn't in line with the original 1984 cartoon/ toy series. There are 12 steps of Transformers fan recovery.

Anger
Swearing
More Anger
Bargaining
Anger
Depression
Anger
Anger
Rage
More Swearing
Boycott
Rabid Fan Boy


Hope that gives you an idea. I for one think it's an interesting take on the franchise, I'd really like to see their vehicle modes. Think you could put these rumors to rest, or just add fuel to the fire?

No, this isn't entirely correct. The fans who dislike the '07 Transformers Movie it's that the film makers dropped ball on the movie designs. I actually find these much more in line with humanoid robots I would see in the Transformers universe. The two bots, they have a little resemblence to Wreckgar and Blurr, and they also have mouths, again something the movie bots generally lack and is misguided in other design ques used by Michael Bay.

Goatimus Prime and MonsterTron coming summer 2007 presented by Michael Bay.


I'm looking forward to seeing Transformers Heroes or whatever it shall be known as.

Most Transformers fans are a touchy, complainey bunch who can't stand the slightest departure from what's been done.
I like these, and can't wait to see more. Bravo!

Don't dismiss my opinion like that. You have no right to. The artists talent is very well and I recognize it and appreciate it but the subject matter of this drawing says nothing robot to me in the slightest. I have a right to voice my critique and until the person who did that piece tells me my opinion is not wanted, who are you to makes excuses for me? How dare you assume that I would not like change. Who are you anyway?

Hah, if you were this touchy 2 years ago, I don't think I even wanna know the level of fanboy rage you had about Animated, because it looks like you can make Transformers that don't look like you'd expect.

I had no idea what you were talking about so had to go check out your pic again and saw my comments. For one thing...Im not a boy, get over it and take the 'fanboy rage' comment and throw it on someone who cares....As for Animated? What about it? I have no interest in it and don't watch it and therefore can't comment on it past the point of yea, I thought the style of art used sucked donkey balls. Is that ok with you or are TF fans suppose to like everything that they ladle out to us? Cause if thats the case this fan is one no more...have a nice day....

Uhm I hate to say this but those are what? Transformers? Nothing on your talant, you are very good artist but those are Transformers? Not diggin them...sorry.....they look more like people in armor -- nothing robotic about them. And the flames coming out of the head?eye? something on the one.....Im at a complete loss why everyone seems to think they look cool. They do not look feasible for anything and the one with the flame head has some really skinny legs close to the knees. How is that supporting him? These are really Transformers? O_O

Sorry for the bad critique.

I will not judge on how good the latest TF will be until I see it get animated. Too many a time do I see people blasting a new cartoon concept artwork saying that it is not what they want or expected, but the moment the cartoon show gets moving pictures, they change their minds too quickly...

I guess that I can wait and see if the story for the latest TF cartoon will be good, or if not better than G1, until then I will not say anything about the artistic style, although I agree that this is similar to the ones use in JLA, Teen Titans and X-Men Evolution...

As a long time transformers fan, I've got to say that this is a complete departure from everything we've seen in the franchise over its 22 year history.

I salute you, sir.

I've long since held that fandom, by its nature, clings to the familiar because it doesn't know to like what it hasn't seen yet. Maybe the designs aren't all that transformable, but it captures the life and personality of the characters. It does so expertly.

Great work overall. And I, too, dig that crazy flame effect. It would be a true pity if this was the only foray into the subject matter you made.

Im guessing Red becomes a flamethrower and Blue a fan. They look more like Megaman EXE characters, but still good
