    Amidst watching DotM eight hundred times, and redrawing the lineup i thought, "How would I do these characters?"
    I made no attempt to keep characters G1 or movie for that matter. I just created characters.

    In my universe, the Transformers are two waring nations from the planet Cybertron. The militaristic Autobots and the terrorist Decepticons.

    Unlike their enemies, the Autobots have chose to take earth forms. Theyll deal with the earthlings but their main priority is destroying their enemy.
    [​IMG]
    Optimus Prime the war hardened general. Firetruck
    Bumblebee is the scout and machine gunner. Corvette
    Ironhide the pissed heavy weapons man. Hummer
    Ratchet the medic. Towtruck
    (i thought being machines, their medic would be a mechanic)
    Jazz the intel and spy. Minicooper
    they also have several Autobot drones for soldiers

    Unlike their enemies, the Decepticons chose not to have earth forms. Instead they chose to take any form, be it their cybertronian vehicles or an earth form if its needed to complete the mission.
    [​IMG]
    Megatron the incapacitated leader
    Starscream the Lieutenant that dreams of the throne
    Shockwave and Soundwave, twin saboteurs. Specialty: hacking
    Barricade the demolition expert and all around heavy weapons
    Frenzy the spy and intel
    they also have several Decepticon drones for soldiers

    Nice work.

    Optimus, Bumblebee and Ratchet seem to have quite interesting designs.

    Thank you lol
    Thanks all for the kind words so far. I should clarify these are all quick sketches so they're rough and uncolored. I just wanted to at least post them for folks to gander.

    Awsome. Ironhide reminds me of Animated Ratchet and Ratchet is very similar in idea, and design to a version of Gears I've designed.

    These need to be brought to the next level in detail and size. There is a mountain of great shapes in there!

    Those look really great. They kinda look like the robots from Portal 2. Escpecisly Shockwave and Soundwave.

    Oh hai worrying sentence. Seriously, this sentence confuses me, are you implying that in your universe the Autobots don't care for humanity? Or am I reading that wrong?

    That said, great concepts here, I'd love to seem them all fleshed out. Particularly like the idea of Shockwave and Soundwave as twins. Genius!

    You know, even though I'm not really fond of the Animated drawing style, those are actually pretty awesome.

    @ThaConqueror theyre a lot like Sentinels starting view. They respect that earth is the human's planet, not theirs, but they generally don't care for humans as a species or as a person.

    @Scrapmaker it's not really meant to be the animated style. That's just how I draw. But I'm guessing you mean the simplification of cartoons.

    That was just my immediate thought. I look at it more now and think "No, those really aren't Animated style, just similar."
