    Seems like everybody's doing this nowadays, which honestly, is super sweet. Just some rough pencils, but check it.

    Not a fan of Scourge, Tracks chin is a bit too big (even for animated) but I love the Wheeljack. Overall good work.

    Heya all, I decided to attempt drawing G1 guys Animated style myself. Since there was this thread, I thought I'd post it here instead of making my own thread. This is my first attempt at this sorta thing :drunk , and decided to sorta base their designs off their G1 selves, but add a few original details of my own.

    My only critique is that they look kinda stiff and jagged for animated characters. They're nice cartoons, but the animated style has a sweet balance of angles and curves. If you haven't saved all of the animated publicity art and character sketches to your computer, totally do that, and then just stare at those suckers for hours. Examine how everything flows together. It'll help a lot!

    And thanks guys!

    Thanks for the critique! Yeah I admit to them looking a bit stiff. Being a first attempt at drawing a different style of TFs, when you aren't so hot at drawing robots in the first place kinda does that to you :D . I'm trying my hand at it again soon, this time with more dynamic posing, to see if it flows better.

    I just wanted to drop in and say that Tracks - especially with the Leno chin - works GREAT for animated. In fact, the superchin on Tracks juuuust about matches the size of his ego. Nice work!
