    Greetings, Fellow TFW2005ers:

    First, thanks to the folks at TFW2005 for providing an online spot for us Transformerphiles to come, mingle, interact, and share art and our love of Transformers.

    Second, here's line art for a Transformer OC (G1 Style - I'm a G1er at heart, LOL!!!) I'm working on (full bio to come later):

    NAME: HIDEFAST
    ALT. MODE: LADYBUG
    ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
    ORIGIN: Formerly from the Planet Zinj, in the Sablus Star System, near Cyberton.
    HISTORY/BIO:
    STRENGTHS:
    WEAKNESSES:
    LIKES:
    DISLIKES: Decepticons, of course;

    *I just got a copy of GIMP 2, and plan on coloring it using that. Anyone know of any really good tutorials I can use to assist me with this? I penciled it on paper, then inked it, then scanned it 300x300dpi and saved it as a .png file for putting into GIMP2 later.*

    Let me know what y'all think. Thanks TFW2005ers.

    Maybe it's because I've seen A Bug's Life, but seeing that she turns into a ladybug makes me laugh.
    "SO! Being a ladybug automatically makes me a girl! Is that it, fly-boy!?"

    Why hidefast is female

    HIDEFAST is a Female Autobot for the following reasons: 1)I love creating Female Autobots and Transformers - wish there were more in G1 and in general; 2)My 4 year-old Daughter wanted me to draw her two G1-style Transfomers: One being Female (HIDEFAST), and another one, a Male, based on a chihuahua, named BADBITE.

    I've been drawing Transformers for awhile and have many OCs that I've created, as well as currently creating, but am just now learning how to color them via computer:
    1)MAGNA DONNA - A Female Autobot Gestalt comprised of 5 Female Autobot Sharp-shooters;
    2)QUICKBLACK - An Autobot who turns into a Black 2007 Toyota Rav4 SUV;
    3)METALPEDAL - A Female Autobot who turns into this: http://www.toplamborghinipics.info/lamborghini-concept-s/;
    4)BADBITE - A Male Autobot who turns into a chihuahua (at the request of my Daughter);
    5)WINTERGREEN - A Male Autobot who turns into a 1994 Toyota Corolla;
    6)FIREBALL - A Female Autobot who turns into a miniature Red Mustang car

    Will keep you all posted. Thank you.

    wow thats pretty cool! Although it looks a bit too much like shell-former. maybe you want to incorporate her alt mode into her body more.

    Her Design

    Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it. Designing HIDEFAST's transformation scheme was pretty challenging - I made a diagram of her in bug mode, with where her robot parts would go. I also looked at a ton of pictures of real ladybugs from different angles. Basically, when in bug mode, her robot body sits hidden under the pronotum and the wings, and her bug legs extend out. I may change it in the future after I work on her some more.

    I like it - remind me of Beet Papil, the unproduced lady bug Beetra (Deluxe Insecticon)
