    ...returns!!!!!!!


    [​IMG]


    I first started this project up a VERY long time ago
    actually..i found a couple old threads here from 2005/2006. WOW! [lol cant believe i was gonna do a project with such terrible art! who let that guy near a pencil! xD]

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-fan-art/89286-machine-wars-project-returns.html

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-fan-art/89374-machine-wars-datatracks-sample.html




    But anyways! Like I said, the project has returned and is in full swing!

    What exactly the project consists of has changed slightly since then but we've got something quite cool in the works!

    So far i've illustrated/colored "character models" for all 12 characters and am currently in the middle of nailing down a script for a Machine Wars fan comic with my villanous cohort Jon Rist [who's responsible for a handful of some AMAZING Mosaics]. We're really trying our best to put our all in this project. Trying to handle a Transformers series a little differently and we're quite excited with the ideas we're working through!


    So here's a few samples of character art from the newly revamped Project: Machine Wars! Enjoy!


    And also check out our "official" home on deviantART here at MACHINE-WARS on deviantART

    Keep an eye on that page as more details and more art will be revealed!

    Ilike these. Megatron is favorited closely followed by starscream. But optimus is the least favorite.

    Wow, your Starscream is wicked, I think this is the first version of him that I thought was totally B.A.

    I really like your style.

    Exciting! I really love that Starscream. Sandstorm would be next. Also liking the metal grating background. The old art for Optimus Prime wasn't that bad. The truck mode is actually quite cool.

    This is one of the many reasons why you continue to be one of my absolute favorite TF artists.

    Oh I see, now I get it! The Machine Wars line is basically repaints of the european "lightformers"-line:D  I had to check out TF-wiki after seeing your pics and recognizing OP as Thunder Clash and Starscream as Skyquake!:D 

    Now I'm calm, haha:)

    I'll still contend that MW Starscream is one of my absolute favorite renditions of Screamer ever. Your artwork makes it shine all the more :)

    I really like the Optimus. Looks like a non-cartoon version of TF Animated Prime. Nice man, I always hated these toys, but you made them look awesome.
