    Well here's my entry that I've been working on all week! ...

    Movie Mirage! (I may do a rear view if my scheduling allows)

    I started by searching around looking at concept cars. Then I came across the Pontiac Piranha. I believe it's from 2000 actually. Not sure if it ever went into production or not. Anyway, I really liked the two-tone look of the car and thought it would be a perfect fit for Mirage's standard blue/white color scheme.

    I designed the chest to somewhat evoke his F1 Racer chest from the original Mirage, which is also why a set of wheels appear in his abdomen.

    As for weapons, he of course had to have his shoulder cannon, although I doubled it up for more badassery. The hubcaps also become shurikens. (they are on his back)

    Enjoy!

    I kinda feel like he needs more kibble. Don't get me wrong, it's great, leagues better than mine, but it kinda just looks like a guy with a car wrapped around him, if you catch my drift.

    Interesting design and nicely made. The arms and legs look a bit small though and his head is a bit big.

    It's called Criticism, dude. If you're interested in getting involved with Art and Design you better be ready for it, be it good and bad.

    Anyway, the Robot mode is fantasticly designed and illustrated. The image does look a tad flat, maybe adding some panels and armour wrapping around his body and the pose looks a bit awkward after the mirroring you added. I agree with some people that he should have a bit more loose armour paneling and "kibble".
    But all in all he came out fantastic, buddy.

    But I DO have to say that this Alt-form you've chosen form him doesn't suit Mirage in my eyes. I think you should of chosen something looking alot more powerful and Sporty looking. I just don't see it making a good Mirage.
    Sorry dude, it's just what I see.
    Good Luck! =)

    True that. Just got a little frustrated there.

    Thanks for the response! And I'm starting to see what people have been saying about the kibble. I'll see what I can work in there.

    I feel like ONE is too dedicated to his work for anyone else to get 1st place unless they really get into it too. I put mine together without even considering such stiff competition. I think I should have given it a better shot.

    No Im not

    No Im not :rolleyes: 

    Someone said that I was taking the easiest way using photo-collage while
    everyone else was drawing so I had to push a bit forward, but is all about fun.

    Time is not over so you can work another entry :thumb 

    @Demonicon

    Great job with this one, robot mode is very cool looking, some how I feel it more familiar to G1 Tracks, than Mirage, maybe cuz it face, but is a great work anyway!
