    making my version of Tidal Wave for the Nhizzi contest, figured id post some stuff here for constructive criticism and whatnot. its a WIP (i hope its ok to post here, first time Fanart here) so make of it what you will-starting off with just the head design for now-hope ya like and i dont get too chewed up here-its MSPaint, so sorry for the crapiness of it. figured id take a chance though, ya know?

    7/4/09:HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!! anyways...

    I'm pretty much done! still need to do detailing on the deck pieces, and add his little plane-missiles, but ya-this is TIDAL WAVE!!!

    actually, im posting 2 different versions-one with a high head, one with a low head, just cause im having trouble picking.

    added a few other head variations-which one do you guys think looks cooler? alt mode will most likely be an Aircraft Carrier or Battleship or Destroyer or something, so hes a big hulkin monster. opinions?

    They all look great, but I'm gonna have to go with #3. Now that I think about it, isn't Tidal Wave one of Michael Bay's favorite Transformers? I can't quite place where I might have heard that before.

    it is harder to pick than i thought-originally i was thinking 3, but the way he's going, 5 may work out better... i'll post more soon, so you can get a basic idea of his appearance-he's fairly ape-ish

    #5 seems most movie-ish.

    I like the trident-stylee spear-crown thingamy but think it's a bit more TFA than movie.

    (Specifically, I don't think the movie has the sort of humour that would have touches of Neptune on a giant sea robot monster.)

    i had just been thinking about that myself actually-its more suppoed to be like pieces of metal jutting up, a bit like on Megatron's final movie head, but it came out looking trident-ish. but its a work in progress, hopefully when its all done it'll look better

    also, for an update-falmost done drawing both arms, moving on to torso and legs from there.

    alright, here's what ive got of the body so far-still working on the legs-debating between just a regular pair of legs or a set of crab-like legs, to go with his oceanic theme. opinions?
