    I've had my avatar for a while now (HUGE thanks to Maximus_Prime) and would like to update it. (would also like a new sig)

    I've managed to do a VERY rough sketch of my fan character Deadsled.

    I thought I'd post it and see what the talent on this board can do with it.

    I'm open to variations from all universes of Transformers.

    Have fun with it!

    and an early thanks for any and all who participate!


    Here's a little back story to work from...

    Faction: Decepticon

    Function: Energon Recovery

    Motto: Death does not extinguish the spark, it is merely a transferrence of power.... TO ME!

    Strength - 8
    Intelligence - 10+
    Speed - 6
    Endurance - 9
    Rank - 8
    Courage - 10+
    Firepower - 7
    Skill - 10

    Upon receiving Soundwave's transmission, calling all Decepticons within range to rally to Earth for the final defeat of the Autobots, Deadsled arose from his deep meditation. He approached his current Master, placed his hands together, and bowed. Arising from the deep, respectful bow of a student to a Master, Deadsled's energon scythe split the mystic teacher up the length of his frame. As is the fate of all teachers from whom Deadsled has learned the darkest sciences and other worldly skills. Over the centuries he has traveled the universe learning. On one forgotten planet, he learned how to phase-shift his hands and draw energon directly from a victim. After demonstrating this power on the battle field, all mechs, Bot's and Con's learned to fear his touch. The energon scythe Deadsled wields draws it's power from the reserves of power drawn from countless victims, giving it the ability to cut through almost any substance.

    Once Deadsled was close enough he tapped into earth's systems and researched it's inhabitants. He was facinated by how finite the life span of a human is. As he studied death as perceived by humans, Deadsled identified with the "Grim Reaper" persona. Slightly adjusting his approach to earth, Deadsled crashed into a human cemetary. His stealth systems scanned the nearest vehicle, a 1959 Cadillac Hearse. He thought to himself "how fitting".

    Abilities: By phase-shifting his hands, Deadsled can draw energon directly out of any Transformer. Energon scythe draws power from energon reserves taken from Deadsled's victims.

    Weaknesses: Easily ambushed when he gets over confident that his reputation alone will send bot's running.



    (Sketch notes: hood becomes chest, front fenders become upper arms, first set of doors lower arms, rear fenders with the fins become lower legs, second set of doors become upper legs, roof of hearse becomes the "cloak", scythe has a light saber type grip that seperates and expands to allow for one handed or wider two handed grip)

    P.S. If you're not familiar with what a 1959 Cadillac hearse looks like, just watch Ghostbusters and picture Ecto-1 with filled in back windows)

    Yeah, pretty much. :tongue: 

    There's so much great talent on this board that blow my limited skilz out of the water. I figured, "hey, maybe somebody will think it's cool and want to play around with it"

    Why not try, right? :D ream:

    If I could draw worth a damn, then I would have a go at it, but I suck at drawing.

    It seems that your goal is to have someone ultimately create an avatar for you. That being said, this thread will be hosted in the "Requests" forum, as it's basically a request for an avatar. Feel free to pick whatever avatar you glean from this.

    If you have an idea for a "contest" to be hosted on TFW2005., please contact an administrator of TFW2005 to submit your request for review. Thanks!

    If you give me a few days, I could draw him up in the transformers: Animated style, and maybe an avatar to match.
    (I made the avatar I'm using now)
