    You and I had the same idea of having primitive TFs stick with beast modes - I suppose great minds think alike. I have to agree with Vatarian - your work ranks up there as some of the best on the site - every time I see that you've updated, I immediately open up the thread. It's always neat to see your unique designs.

    Awww, thanks man!

    Actually, I have a lot of semi-finished designs I never completed lying around besides Orion, like this Ruiner Cybertronian mode I made up for that one pic with Nightbird:

    We still don't know where he got that car mode.

    Oh man that is lovely. I love the mix of the G1 and Armada designs, particularly in the way he's coloured

    What I like about this the most is how much thought you've put into every aspect of the design. The transformation, everything. I like the fact that you could almost have one of the 3P companies make functional toys from this.

    All your work is amazing and Optimus got really good and Ruined reached new heights and each of your successive art styles is better than the last and just good just all around :thumb

    Thank you very much, everyone. :) 

    Thank you. I try to work out every transformation or, failing that, use an existing/simple scheme. (Like something obviously Sideswipe-y) My rule of thumb is to cheat no more than Animated, but no less than OG RID/the UT. Like if a character would realistically have a little bit jutting out of a fender on their shoulder that would fill the gap between it and the hood, I'd leave that out. Likewise Blurr would realistically have a hinge halfway up his thigh and lower leg where both parts fold for alt mode, but it's not a necessary detail.

    Thank you so much! :D  It's always good to hear people like my written creativity as well as my drawings.

    No problem! I finished Ruined and started rereading Optimus recently, and your stuff started more compelling than most of the fan fiction on this site (no offense to anyone else) and only got stronger as it went on. I honestly misremember moments from your stuff (Megatron's introduction, the twists with Starscream and Convoy) as "official" moments in the brand. That's how much they stick out in my head! :D

    Nothing too remarkable today, just Big Daddy from the Transformers: EARTHBOUND RPG. Oh, and a picture of Ironhide as part of my new series(?) of 'Bots with dogs. (To be perfectly honest, it was a request from my mother. :p )

    You man are a real mastermind! I've seen all of your art and personally I think your designs are one of the best on this site. And I really like your spins on a familiar material (Optimus, Orion and Convoy for example). One thing I didn't understand is the "Megatron is Convoy" thingy. BTW I've read your fanfic, because I didn't find it anywhere. And if you're still taking suggestions, I have two. Soundwave before the reformation from Scourge and your interpretation of Doubledealer (Why Dealer, you may ask? Because he was my first G1 toy, not my first TF toy, though).

    Wait, did you read it or not? Because in my FOC
    Megatron was Convoy all along. He transplanted his own head onto Strika's body (or rather she did out of loyalty) because he's a sicko and plotted against the Autobots for revenge until he discovered he could take over the planet. (Not that he wouldn't have still exacted revenge on them, of course)
