    So it's been a while, and a lot of personal stuff has happened. In addition, Gaea has lost a lot of the steam compared to what it once had. And after a lot of consideration, I decided the best way to move on from all that stuff and get back into things is to start from scratch. So, after working with Stone on AutoAca, discussions with a number of friends, and studying a number of artists, I'm back and better than ever before!

    So, allow me to introduce Project: Worldbuilder, a brand new universe with a focus on it's lore! Now I'm not completely dropping out of comics just yet, as I will in the future likely attempt 1-shot comics and post them here! In addition, this universe won't just consist of transformers! Many other series will exist in this universe, so look forward to it!

    But where do we start, I here you ask? Well, where better than the very beginning of Cybertronian Life. Introducing the first entry to thread, the life-giver himself:

    Primus

    Primus.jpg

    The giver of life, the original biomechanical being, there are major disputes as to Primus’ origins. The main religious following believe he and his opposite were born as a result of the Big Bang, fighting each other for eons, until Primus was finally victorious. It is said that this exhausted Primus, and using the last of his energy, Primus drew in the stardust around him to form the planet around him, and split his consciousness into five beings known as the Guiding Hand.


    Others say that he started out life as a robot, built by a scientist some refer to as Primacron. It is said that Primacron found a mythical source of energy that gave life to his creation, and a will of his own, believed to go on to become Primus. When Primacron tried to replicated, he could only create a corrupted counterfeit, and that when he used it to power a second robot, the machine became tainted with evil, creating Unicron. It is said that Unicron devastated Primacron’s lab, and engaged in a lengthy battle which resulted in Primus once again victorious. These stories say that when their battle ended, Primus let himself drift, falling into a forming star. The resulting energies from Primus’ core fused with the very essence of creation caused a peculiar reaction, and ultimately resulted in the birth of Cybertron. This theory is particularly favoured by organics.


    In the present day, it is believed that the small region of the Primus Nexus, a holy neutral ground between all other regions of Cybertron is as close as one can get to Primus. Watched over The Oracle and her followers, and guarded by the ancient combiner Landcross, the Primus Nexus is home to the Well of Allsparks, a channel believed to lead to Primus himself where The Oracle communes with their creator. The Well itself is overlooked by The Five Pillars, monoliths that are believed to be the resting place of the Guiding Hand.

    And now how better to christen this thread than with the greatest of phrases...

    ENJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice!

    The shading really helps improve the depth of your art, and I really like the over-all design and colours you've chosen for Primus

    Alright, second pic and it's one you kinda have to do in any TF art thread. Otherwise you get arrested and fined. Seriously, guys! Anyway, lets actually get to this character...

    Optimus Prime

    Optimus Prime.JPG

    Optimus is the leading Prime of Iacon, one of the thirteen regions of Cybertron. Chosen by The Oracle, Optimus was once Orion Pax, before he became successor to Sentinel Prime after his untimely death at the hands of unidentified assailant. Optimus tries to be a fair and just Prime, and often visits his friend and fellow Prime, Megatron, for advice.


    Before he became Optimus Prime, Orion was a library clerk who watched the world go by his window. And with each passing day, he began to notice the injustices facing Cybertronians today, and decided he wanted to make a change. So with a little help from his employer, Alpha Trion, Orion began passing on a newsletter. This newsletter inspired activism amongst Cybertronians, wanting change to the system, and change did come.


    Following these events, Sentinel kept a close eye on Orion, even going as far as to employ the young clerk into his government offices, a move that unsettle members of his government. Sentinel kept a close eye on Orion till his demise, and would be smiling down from the Allspark to see how far the young librarian has come.

    Alright, something a little different. Another planet, same universe! It's...

    Kracko!!!!

    Kracko.jpg


    Kracko’s are a species indigenous to the Planet Popstar, typically occupying it’s skies and mountain biomes, though one has been said to be spotted making it’s home on the side of a volcano. These creatures have a wide variety of abilities, varying from unleashing torrential downpours of rain, to lightning strikes of varying intensity, or even producing electrical beams around its body. Kracko’s have been known to collect random trash and even much smaller creature in order to drop them on its foes. Some Kracko’s have even been recorded as having developed the ability to extend their metal barbs.

    Kracko’s tend to start their life cycles in a state known as Kracko Jr.’s, in which the Kracko has yet to form a full cloud, instead only having four pocket clouds floating around them. Some Kracko’s have been seem to go beyond the standard Kracko stage, their body becoming much darker in colour and showing more violent tendencies. Some of these have even flown off world and into space, being nicknamed Space Krackos.

    Krackos have also recently been found on Gabbel Moon, a moon that orbits Planet Towaria. This particular ecosystems appears to have changed Kracko’s on an evolutionary level. These Kracko’s have developed the ability to produce a fully matured Kracko by the process of splitting, though little progress has been made into discovering how this evolutionary trait developed, mostly due to the fact scientists are sent packing by the Krackos.

    Kirby characters existing in the same universe as Transformers? Now when I think about it Unicorn is not as big threat compared to what Popstar met.

    And today we have a human, who you've seen before on my old thread.

    Charlie Walters - Nightwing Beyond

    Charlie Walters.JPG

    In the year 2050, the world has changed. The human race has extended its hand to universe, and Earth has become a haven for many species. And with Earth much more accessible, new threats have come to the planet, with aims on conquering, destroying or simply causing chaos. And with these threats ever looming, heroes stand tall to protect their home, regardless of whether they were humans born there or alien colonists wish to make a life for them.

    Enter Charlie Walters. A student studying journalism at Bludhaven University, Charlie had a fond interest in superheroes and their place in the present day world, and has been producing many a piece, taking her from Gotham to Metropolis to Detroit, learning about heroes of all shapes and forms. Charlie then decided to look into a hero of her hometown, Nightwing, who had been vanished after a confrontation with one of his foes, The Raptor.

    After investigating, Charlie met the demoralised Dick Grayson, who had in fact lost one of his legs during his fight with Raptor, and had retired from hero work. Having lost his classic more upbeat tone, Dick had lost faith in Bludhaven wanting to be saved. Finding his suit, Charlie decided that someone had to protect her city. After nearly killing herself in a fight with an mechanical alien known as “Flywheel”, a chance encounter with the heroes Batman and Flamepipe helped set herself to become a real. Now she trains with Flamepipe to defend Bludhaven herself, receiving mysterious tech donations from some unnamed person at Wayne-Queen Joint Enterprises, aiding her in her crusade.

    And back to transformers! Today it's one of the leader's of NEST...

    Goldbug!!!!

    Goldbug.JPG

    Once the young and aspiring rookie known as Bumblebee, Goldbug has grown a lot through time, once being naive and playful. However as time progressed and Bumblebee gained much experience under his belt, he matured and slowly began to evolve into an able and capable warrior, even taking on the leadership role. After many years of victories, losses and learning about many different cultures and planets, as well as a number of body augmentations over time, Bumblebee gave himself a new paint job and took on a new name, one he felt would display his newfound maturity. And thus Goldbug was born.

    These days, Goldbug is stationed on Earth, working as joint-commander of the Cybertronian-Human peacekeeping group known as NEST, alongside fellow Cybertronian Soundwave and the human William Lennox. Goldbug particularly gets on well with their government liaison officer, Marissa Fairborne. Goldbug is not afraid to get into the thick of things, and leads NEST’s alpha-team on missions.

    Goldbug has come to enjoy Earth customs, particularly their music, their literature and their TV show’s, though he really doesn’t see what some of his younger teammates such as Rumble and Rewind seem to see in the Earth-media known as “Comic-Books”. Goldbug is also quite curious to learn about a phenomenon known as “Super Heroes”, and contemplates whether on this planet, he and his team could be considered such. One can only dream!

    And today we have another minibot...

    WARPATH!!!!

    Warpath.JPG


    Blam! Pow! Kaboom! With a fondness of yelling onomatopoeia out loud, Warpath is the living definition of a war machine. Considered the big gun of NEST, Warpath has enough firepower on him to challenge even the largest of threats to the Earth. Well, he likes to thinks so anyway. Armed with a chest mounted rotary-cannon, a shoulder mounted pulse launcher, and hand-held heavy rifles, Warpath is well tooled up, despite is smaller stature than most brutes.

    Warpath was born in Polyhex, and quickly grew bored of life there, finding a lack of anything to really shoot at where he was raised. So when he was one of those approached by Goldbug and Soundwave to journey to Earth to deal with potential Cybertronians posing a threat to the populace of the planet, Warpath was quick to join, packing a huge number of weapons to bring with him on this new planet.

    To say Warpath is inconsiderate about collateral damage is an understatement. He is constantly being berated by at least one of his superiors for destroying something he shouldn’t have, whether it be Goldbug, Soundwave or Lennox. He would like to point out, however, he hasn’t killed any humans yet, and that he deserves more credit than he gets. Some of the more mischievous members of the team also enjoy pushing Warpath down hills due to his wheel feet.

    Warpath transforms into an SUV based on ROTF Brawn, and takes cues from movie 07 Warpath.

    I only just noticed you gave him the wheel feet instead of his usual tread feet. That's awesome

    And today we have another character aded to the roster...

    Moonracer!!!!

    Moonracer.JPG

    Moonracer is the adventurous sort, have explored many arms of the galaxy and met many a culture on her travels. In fact one stop on Troja Major was where she got her signature hoodie made out of a strange material called “fabric”. She wears it wherever she goes now, and loves showing it off to her friends. She also enjoys going shooting at ranges near where she works.

    Moonracer works for the Velocitron Inc. Racing company, training as a student teacher for one of the many academies set up by the company, currently working under Macro to teach and inspire the future generation of Cybertron’s racers. Moonracer plays the part of the cool teacher, and tries to be as friendly and positive to her students, and doesn’t like to shout at them (though some do have a bad habit of driving her close).

    Born in the town of Krator in the region of Cybertron known as Caminus, and used hang out with her friend Firestar, Nautica and Velocity, and tended to be the one who got the four of them into trouble (normally with their parents. Moonracer did spend time jumping around jobs, before going on her offworld adventures and finding a calling to become a teacher of future racers.

    Alright, time for another Cybertronian! This time it's...

    Barricade!!!!!

    Barricade.JPG

    Barricade - Battle Mask.jpg

    A beat cop from Kaon, Barricade has quite the temper, which has unfortunately lead to him being denied promotion multiple times. Using the C-PH body-type, a chassis that had been specifically designed for Cybertronians serving in the police forces to allow them quickly pursue their targets as soon they are on seen. Barricade is quite fond of this body-type, and will quickly reprimand fellow officers who show discomfort at having to use it.

    Barricade tends to be stationed patrolling the area around the Kazmani Shipyards which, while it tends to be quiet the majority of the time, can lead to some of the most intense chases patrolling cops like Barricade could ever hope to see. Barricade often finds young Cybertronians streets racing around the shipyards, and have even given chase to some who have attempted to get into the shipyards to use as some sort of ultimate race course. On some occasions, Barricade has considered having his own attempt at what many racers call the Corvette Loop, which is possibly the most dangerous route to race around the shipyards.

    Perhaps the thing that Barricade hates most of all about his job is how he is often partnered with the cheerful and chipper Groove, a fellow beat cop who seems to relaxed to have actually become a police officer. Barricade feels that when the two of them are partnered by their chief, Checkpoint, Barricade is always the one who has to do all of the work. What he would give to be able to sock Groove right in his upbeat little face.

    So in case you didn't clock it yes, Barricade's alt mode is based on the Patrol Speeder introduced in Solo: A Star Wars Movie! And yes, his mask is also a reference to the patrol trooper.

    SO ENJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
