    Movie Roulette

    I had an idea for this character one night. She's an 2010 Lexus RX Hybrid named (hardly based on) Roulette. Still getting the hang of vehicles. Based her body type on the type of body I'd think would be useful in a fight. This one likes to get her servos dirty and is tall enough and reinforced enough to tackle even the most generously sized Decepticons.

    One could say she has plenty of trunk space. Heh.

    :sly:  Oooooh..kaay...:lol 

    Dude, I'll admit, I like me some curvy gals, but I don't aply it to robots. I really don't care if the biker chick bots are skiny or unattractive, cause they're just robots to me.

    It is actually a rather nicely done sketch though. and the design has some neat elements to it.
    I guess it's kind of a neat idea to have a more curvy fembot...Sure, why the hell not. I mean we've got Strika after all.

    You say "admit" like it's a bad thing, man. I apply my preferences to female characters of all kinds, just like anyone else. It's nothing to be ashamed of. People who like thin women design thin characters. People who like chubbies design thicker women.

    Thanks, Paxtin. I was actually surprised when I saw you posting here a while back- I was Dipstikk on Deviantart and I remember your art well.

    Yeah, this isn't meant to be a huge project (pun intended?); I had an idea, jotted it down, and there you go. Thanks for commenting.


    I'm not sure I'd call Strika a positive incarnation of a "curvy" fembot. There needs to be a more positive Autobot equivelant within the TF universe anyway. The "fat chicks are villains" cliche wears thin quickly.

    Pretty nice! This is what a real female movie-bot should look like. That or TF1 Arcee. Not some kind of unrecognizable freaky thing. As much as I like Chromia, they could've made her a lot more feminine.

    Redesigned her head just a bit. Her cord hair works like Megatron's from Beast Machines; plugging the ports in and out of receivers behind her neck. I'm going to work on her body next.

    I've changed her name to Roulette because it sounds sexier.

    IMO, trim the legs, she looks a bit obese, in a roboty way.

    but everything is great

    That's the point, she's supposed to look like that. She's like a female linebacker: thick, heavy and solidly built. Able to hold her against even the biggest Decepticons.

    My kinda woman!

    Thankies.

    :sly2:  Hmm...I think it might help if you added in a waist like she seems to have in the first sketch.

    I probably will when I go and smooth it out in Photoshop. I was concentrating more on what everything was made from.

    You guys are acting way too nervous for something as benign as this.

    Here's an in-progress shot of the smoothed-out Photoshop version. I extended the midsection like Paxtin suggested. Removed the windows, too. I suppose since the Movie bots are supposed to be a mix of metal and "holographic imagery," she can fake those in vehicle mode.

    GUESS WAT ELSE SHE CAN FAKE

    Yo Joe!

    Wait, wrong franchise.

    Updated the design by adding arms. Back view coming very soon.

    Oh, and I am in desperate need of images that show the undercarriage of the Lexus RX 400h, but am unable to find any images to use as reference. If anyone has anything relating to that, or images of the undercarriages of models that are similar in build, please let me know.
    Thanks!

    Roulette charges door-first into battle against Duststorm (large, modified tractor, unseen).

    Did a color comp of the head. Must be carrying the spark of Josh Nizzi lately.

    Also, can a mod please change the name in the title to "Movie Roulette?" She's no longer called Firestar. Thanks.

    Cool design. Its strange at first, but seeing what her character is like, it makes sense. Good luck with the contest. :thumb
