    A question if that is permited here; I have no artistic talents at all, as such I have to ask someone with said talent to assist me when I wish to see a wonderful piece of artwork that is usually known as comission or request artwork.

    I have this idea; or more accurately I have a small group of Maximals and a small group of Predacons I would like to see group shots for, some of them exist as toys (I.E Tripredacus, Tarantulas, Skyshadow, Ramulus, Claw Jaw, Mach Kick Etc...)
    some of them are fan made characters. (I.E Vixen, Ebony, Nightviper [Partially, I reworked the toy into a female organic beast version instead of the technorganic one.]...)

    If I was to supply detailed physical descriptions of my fan-made Beast Warriors and a description of the group shot I want could someone draw it for me? (Or them depending on whether I want to do one Maximal group shot, one Predacon group shot and maybe a fight scene between the two.)
    I'd love it if a fellow fan could hook me up; please if anyone thinks they can pull it off let me know here or via PM and I'll get back to you when I can.

    Who said you need talent yo post in this section? At least post some sketches. The point of posting your drawings in the fan-art section is to help each other to improve out art. :D 
    I don't know if I can help but I hope you get all the help you want. :thumbs2:

    Well I like the enthusiasm aimed my way; and appreciate the vote of confidence I'm afraid it's a tad misplaced Brave Magnus and Thunder_Cracker... You see when I say I lack talent I mean it literally; I can't remember the last time I even tried to draw, I'm certain it was back in grade seven or six and thus I truly have no talent.

    The best I could hope would be a couple of stick figures or something; not good enough for what I want, I'm looking for super detailed group shots of the following Maximals and Predacons.

    Maximals: Ramulus, Claw Jaw, Ricochet (Essentialy Beast Wars Neo Mach Kick, but with real horse colors... I believe I gave him a rich brown coloring, but I'd have to go back and check the fanfic in order to be absolutely certain.), Striker (The Universe coloring of the Beast Wars Neo Saberback mold minus the massive Autobot symbol on him.), Nightviper (Beast Machines character with Beast Wars Neo Corhada mold though she's a female Maximal and thus her appearance his naturally different, I haven't finalized her transform sequence yet... I think I'd go with the BM toys transformation, but the Corhada looks I'll have to do a detailed description on her because she'll probably look way different then either toy in all honesty.), Vixen (A female version of the Beast Wars Wolfang toy; except her robot mode has armor stylized in the ancient Greek vein akin to the armor worn by Athena on Xena Warrior princess with obviously a more alien appearance in certain respects, her full description is in my fanfic and I could cut and paste it here later in an edit when I have the time to look.) and last, but not least Onyx AKA Synergy (The self same Synergy from Sunbow's Jem and the Holograms; I have a description of her more human appearance, she no longer has a robot mode or beast mode because her spark was transfered into Emmett Benton's holographic and musical centered computer system. She has the ability to render her template form as a solid hologram though and thus counts as a member of the group although she doesn't fight the Predacons.)

    And now the Predacons: Tarantulas (Original Form), Ramhorn, Seaclamp, Cicadon, Razorclaw, Skyshadow, Hard Head (The BW Neo Pachycephalosaur) and lastly Ebony. (Onyx's sister who transforms into a panther; I haven't finished giving her a detailed character description yet, but I definately will try to do that ASAP so anyone reading this will know what I'm going for. Ebony will most likely share some coloring from Onyx's former Maximal bodies' colors. Hence there'll probably be a lot of purple with the black and maybe a bit of blue if my memory serves.)


    So you can see where I'd seek out someone with actual talents to give me a hand; I'll take a look at that evilratbat, thanks for trying to help even if you can't now that you know what I'm going for. The pictures would be basic group shots; similar to what was done on the Botcon litho's for the Beast Wars series back in... Was it 2003??? I forget. So basically it would just be one big Maximal group shot, perhaps standing on a hill overlooking a New York cityscape or maybe to be more accurate a Los Angeles one and the Predacons would be standing in a snowy region with the combined form of Tripredacus in the background to showcase all the characters. (Since Cicadon, Ramhorn and Seaclamp do transform into him.) And naturally there'd be dynamic action poses... You know maybe I should ask Don if he could do something for me; I mean he is quite the talent... Though I doubt he takes requests.


    Anyway I hope that explains more what I'm going for; this is really something I'm interested in doing to showcase my Fanfic teams, give people who read them and who aren't familiar with TFs' an idea of what they will look like, especially my fan-made characters. (Although I don't know if Nightviper counts since she's really a kind of amalgam of two seperate toys that actually exist.) So yeah... And if I wanted to do that fight scene deal... Well I think it'd be better to wait for later; see if anybody can just pull of the group shots and all that, I would seriously really appreciate it because I really would love to get some of these characters in my head out there image wise for people to see.



    EDIT This is my description of what Vixen looks like in robot mode; not sure if it's detailed enough, I did promise to share it here. Following that I have Synergy's human form...

    Her form shifted with barely a whisper of a sound moving fluidly from the organic wolf mode into the Maximal warrior; her armor was a mixture of ebony and dark, dark blue coloring, her face was covered by a black mask, and her optics were a vivid shade of magenta. Her armor was definitely curved; it reminded me most strongly of Athena’s armor, with the short skirt-like piece around her waist and the strange appearance of her helmet, though there were certain influences from her bestial form as well most especially in the slight curvature of ears and the sharp metallic teeth, which glinted in the moonlight.
    She proved slightly more curvy then Airazor, but not as bust out slutty as Black Arachnia in the chest department; her cranium held a small shock of metallic-beaded hair, and her fingers ended in claws while a sword laying strapped across her back blended perfectly into the armor, and her feet seemed shaped like short-heeled boots that blended into her legs part way up.


    “Al.” A voice called out from the doorway tentatively; I looked up to find a stunning raven haired beauty, wearing an elegant ensemble reminiscent of a casual style business suit, without the tie or plain white top. Her eyes were crystal blue sparkling with emerald flecks; I’d never seen anyone like her before, and yet something about her face seemed familiar.
    When I caught sight of the Jemstar earrings hidden behind her long flowing locks I nearly fell out of my chair

    “Syn?” I blurted watching in surprise as her holographic form mimicked a true human response, her cheeks flushed and she offered a shy smile.

    “You approve.” She whispered slipping into the room; the dark purples and blues that comprised her outfit, stood out even more in the brighter lights. “This is as close to my former existence as I could get; I wanted to share, at least partially. What I looked like as a Maximal.” She admitted in a gentle tone; walking slowly and gracefully across the carpeted floor in gold flecked purple high heels. I eyed her in respectful appraisal and shot her a friendly smile, we were closer then anyone else I’d ever met in my travels, except perhaps Amy and Rogue thanks to our sharing of minds when I’d fixed her this morning.

    “People are going to wonder where you shop, with jealousy I might add.” I teased considering no one I’d seen styled clothes like this; at least nothing came close to it in those stores I’d visited with the girls, both here and in New York.

    “Let them.” She returned with a broad smile; taking a cautious seat in the chair next to mine she eyed me seriously. “I know what happened; and I know what Jerrica said to you, in a way she’s right, you aren’t to blame for this.” She stated grasping my shoulder in a show of understanding; I patted it graciously, Synergy did have a lot more knowledge about me then anyone else and so I trusted her counsel perhaps more then I would have Jerrica’s, though it pained me to admit that even to myself… In a way I supposed Syn was truly my sister; even her holographic form bore some small similarities to me, as though she wanted to create an image that could be construed as a fraternal twin to myself, though I was simply guessing at that.

    Ok; so Synergy isn't as detailed physically as Vixen, but I think it get's the image across... Besides if you know what Synergy looks like from the Jem and the Holograms cartoon you can roughly figure out how she looks in the story. I hope... And now I'd better get some details finalized for the others I.E Nightviper and Ebony because evilratbat seems to have a willingness to give me a hand. Which means he so :rock  in my book; still different interpretations of my grand design might be fun too if anyone else would care to take a crack at it... Like maybe the highly talented Acid Wing. :D
