    I have a bad habit when doing combiner teams I tend to do just one and move onto something else ( see tron styled After Burner but still no other TB's... and I started this back when Tron Legacy was still called T2RN and was just that clip from SDCC ) So for this pic I just drew them all together.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/attachment.php?attachmentid=27207887&stc=1&d=1296669668

    its not quite done as I need to finish the city scape but the character parts are done. Also the more keen eyed people may see that HotSpot looks a bit odd well I drew him on a 2nd sheet and comp'd him in as my original pic looked rather wonky.

    As for changes well I went out of my way to keep the square look but each member actually has a fixed position how as you can see by First Aid and Street Wise's hidded combiner hand back packs, Grove also just forms the head, neck and a small part of the chest with a head swap similar to most PCC toys. Blades really just forms the rest of the torso and finally Hotspot is the waist down.

    Holy crap you've been working on that for awhile... but it totally paid off! This may have just become my favorite picture you've done :D  So great!
    :bay  I've never given one of those before...

    ... you deserve to be the first.

    Groove's arms and Hot Spot's right arm look a little small due to the foreshortening (perhaps exaggerating them just a tiny bit would help).

    Aside from that . . . :rock

    *Is eagerly awaiting colored version.*

    Really cool, dude. I especially like the revised placement of the combiner limbs. It clears up a lot of the scale issues of the original Defensor.

    Love Hotspot.

    Wait, *re-reads*

    so you've changed the way he combines? Well that may fix the scale issues but that means blades is STILL too small. (wouldn't a chopper be bigger than a fire truck?)

    Hah, and Groove is reduced to Headmaster status. LOL.

    Yeah, you're certainly not going all Superstar Lee with your proportions :lol 

    That's one reason I posted what I did when I did, because they look like very easy fixes to an otherwise awesomely epic piece. I have a great fondness for these guys and your work :)

    Oh how I love black/white art work. I'm sure this will look great colored as well but there's something about b/w that just gets me. This looks really nice. I hope to see these guys combined sometime.

    I love this! It's great! Also Defensor is my favorite combiner so that helps. ;)

    yeah call me sad but I'm really strict when it comes to scale

    Also to make First Aid and Street wise similar in scale Street Wise is a Caddie CTS-V wagon rather then the old school 300ZX.

    Also yeah their is some brave going on here... Defensor even more so for what I have in mind.

    sadly their hasn't been much progress today. I don't know if any of you guys have done retail but a 4am start for an audit of the whole store plus our repair centre today is not a good way to kick off a productive day plus I wanted to write the first script for my video series. Also my GIJoe POC: Jungle Viper arrived in the mail and I had to play with it

    Nothing wrong there.
    Also, looking at hotspot I can see bits of how you designed him to be the legs... it's pretty genius, even compared to the rest of your work. The way you can see bits that are obviously part of the legs in the chest without disrupting the aesthetic of the robot mode is quite brilliant and I'm jealous. Will be pumped to see them in color... and even more excited for defensor.

    Wait you have a job and can get ANYTHING done?

    The soul suckers I work for aren't satisfied with my labor every waking hour,,, they call me when I'm asleep too.

    Sadly I haven't picked up a pen for anything more than logs & reports in over two years.

    yeah its a pain but I try to do something every week even if I cant finish it.

    also I've added a WIP pic with the back ground. I might swap it out for another but for now its ok. Right now I've only really changed streetwise just to give him more verity but I might change them all to make Defensor more cohesive looking when combined. This wont be a big change just a case of adding a little red and blue on the others
