    Be gentle, it's my first time. I've been a huge Transformers fan for most of my life, but until the new animated series came out I never felt so artistically linked to it. Thought it would be fun to re-imagine the old favorite in this new style. I'd like to hear what you think.

    They're almost too detailed for animated. But awesome nonetheless.

    Not at all, if you could just please add a line under it "artwork by Manny Vega - www.mannyvega.net"

    And please send me a copy of the fanfic, I'd love to read it. I had some ideas on how the twins would play into the animated series, but I'd love to hear other ideas. The holster came from the idea that they are autobot bounty hunters who go out and retrieve rogue autobots or decepticon's. Just seemed to fit ;) 

    I know you can't see it very well, but the twins have the same transformation, except the torso is reversed (Sunstreaker has the hood on his back, and Sideswipe has the windshields on his back). If you look closely you can see the jetpack on Sideswipe's back (imagine it basically pops out of the sunroof), and it resembles the engine block that is part of Sunstreaker's head . I guess the idea is that they have all the same parts, but distributed slightly differently.

    I'm tweaking out the alt modes from the quick sketches I made, will post them soon.
