    I've had some ideas for a character based on my screen name here at TFW so I decided to draw him today. Here, he is drawn in the Animated style; well....supposed to be anyway. I somewhat had inspiration from ROTF Devastator, hence the colors and the gorilla-like proportions. He is basically an electricity-based powerhouse lol. By the way, I would really appreciate it if there are any professional Animated artists here who are willing to make my character look better and more like how they do in the show. :) 

    Character Motto: "Electrocutions and executions are my specialty." - lame I know, but who cares.

    NOTE: If you don't know what a bucket truck is, here's an example below...

    Impressive. His head looks like ROTF Soundwave (coincidence?).

    Thanks! :D  And yeah, I had some minor inspiration from ROTF Soundwave; mainly just the visor.

    Eh. This thread should be deleted. I've kind of changed my character; he's an Autobot and different alt. mode; black '09 Dodge Nitro. I change my mind a lot but this is final. Surge stays an Autobot and Dodge Nitro. Mods! This thread is free for a lockin'/deletion.

    Why not just simply create another thread with your updated character? I think that would be best :wink:

    I guess I could try that; I'll keep the same head design, but change the body a bit to fit the Dodge Nitro. I REALLY want to draw a movie-style version of him but I'm not that good at drawing small details. I guess I could draw my new Animated version some day and ask someone to make a movie version so I could put it in my sig. Having Josh Nizzi do the work would be a dream come true. :D

    Thank you! :D  Yeah, he does look a bit like Bonecrusher, with the bucket lift/claw of doom behind him lol.

    This sounds great!

    I'd like to see you tackle this project on your own, but if you really want someone else to do it, simply post a thread in the "Commissions Requests" forum here :) 

    Keep up the good work, and keep us posted on your progress! :thumb
