    This is my entry for the "Design a Transformer" contest.

    I've chosen to do a design of Shockwave, my favourite character who is not yet included in the movies. I'll write some more tomorrow but right now I have an appointment with my bed. :) 

    Due to working all the time, I wasn't able to paint his vehicle mode unfortunately - basically he turns into a cybertronian tank much like Animated Shockwave.

    The pictures should be attached - the first one is just the body and the second one is a wallpaper. I hope you dig it.

    Excellent work Mit, you've fused movie to G1 really effectively there. Good to see you do something with that rather splendid head concept. Do you have an idea about scale with this design?

    i really, really like this. I agree with Baird, the g1 influence is obvious and great. Sadly i feel like for that exact reason it would never make it into one of the movies, as apparently michael bay hates anything that G1 fans love.

    Why, because he's entering his own design?

    Depends on the interpretation. It's a small part that is older, yes, but it is my work. I guess exisiting artwork is not allowed because else people would copy/paste like mad. I could also change the headbut I want it to look like that. :) 

    And thanks for all the praise!

    Do you think you can just post even a black and white concept sketch of the alternate tank mode or are you finishing coloring it?

    I'm in work and when I get home, the contest will already be over. I really wish I would've had more time. :/

    It is. Mit just finished the head design a while back, which then did the rounds various places. There's plenty of us that can attest it's all his own work.

    If someone's disqualified for using their own work... well, that'd be a bit silly, wouldn't it?

    Personally I've loved this design from the first.

    Calling someone out for using their own work. Sheesh.

    Even though the alt mode may not make the deadline, are you still going to post it here? Please?
