    Got something started that I've always wanted to do, but was always either too lazy or too distracted to tackle. Now i've finally decided to hunker down and get to it. I have alot more done than just this pic, but I thought i'd provide just it as a teaser.

    Now I kind of doubt anyone is going to be able to guess, but if any one does, it'll be someone who was active on tfmaster.com 5-6 years ago. Thats really a hint in and of itself. If anyone can guess, i'll give you the finished figure...


    ... not really, but I'll be impressed.


    **UPDATE 5/31**

    Sculpt-Bot guessed it! He's Grimlock, based on the art from the Myth Wars project that was going on at TFmaster forever ago.

    Since the art this guy is based on isn't available any more, I thought i'd finish the sketch of it I started like 3 years ago. I did about half of it while i still had Billys art to look at, and I finished it yesterday from memory. I hope I did his awesome concept justice.

    All thats left to do on the figure is paint him up.

    Are these the Gargoyle TF's that were batted about back and forth over at TFmaster.com?
    Someone needs to dig up all of those old concept sketches! I loved the Dinobot and Constructicon concepts that were shown there!

    I'm assuming it's not bomb burst, since primo recently posted his. so i'm interested in the theories that FR and sculpt-bot had.

    looks very promising though, looking forward to more

    All good guesses. Apparently I should have made Bomb-Burst.

    Sculpt bot had the right of it. Way back when over at Tfmaster and Seibertron there was a group art project going on called "Myth Wars", that made TFs into mythological creatures of all types. No seemed able to come to a consensus on whether this was taking place with the G1 characters or with the Beast Wars ones, as members of both groups got new designs, but either way, alot of them were really, really cool. Personally, I felt like the stand outs were Shockwave (who, of course, turned into a Cyclops) and the Dinobots, who turned into gargoyles. Of them, Grimlock was particularly cool, and thats who this WiP is.

    He's not going to be able to transform, as there really just isn't alot fodder for this sort of thing available, and I'm terrible at engineering transformations from scratch. He'll be roughly between voyager and ultra sized.

    A dude named Billybadass did all the Dinobot designs, and unfortunately, his site isn't up anymore, so I think all of the completed sketches of him are gone, but if you google image "myth wars grimlock" some of the design and transformation sketches are still around, check 'em out.

    Thanks for adding that pic! Unfortunately, this guy is going to be non-transforming, so that mode won't be seeing the light of day, but its still cool to see it again.

    update on first post
