    To anyone else I would say 1 hour ... Bullcrap! But you just keep getting better and better.
    I have seen your artistic ability grow over, what has it been the last 2 or 3 years on this board and all I have to say is "damn that's sweet!!!"

    Just like the Rumble head... amazing job on this too! Have you thought about doing a full body image of any of the movie TF's in this style?

    Did a full body take on Megatron and Starscream. Look for them a few threads deep here. Thanks for your kind words!

    I really like your work. I think they could easily rationalize the autobots taking heads like this to make us humans feel more comfortable around them...maybe in the sequel.

    The relative fast completion time on this design results from using some parts from the earlier concepts (Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, Frenzy and Jazz). They took at least twice as long or more to finish, for the most part. Plus, the earlier pieces helped to set up a train of thought for me, which also cuts into final completion time on the next piece.

    I had a pretty solid idea where I wanted to go with Ironhide. I wanted to stay pretty true to the G1 cartoon likeness. So keeping those simple shapes in mind while trying to add an air of reality seemed easy, to a point.

    I'm working on a Ratchet design now. In total time, it will probably take less time than the Ironhide design did. But I would hope you would see the reasoning behind that short time span. They are virtually the same design, with a few personality differences taken into consideration.

    Hope to have Ratchet uploaded soon...
