    nothing fancy. I've been wanting to revisit the seeker design for a bit as my last design has not aged as well as I hoped.

    Jet mode has been swapped to a SU33 Flaker D no real reason why but I've been using it on Ace Combat AH and I dig it. Also the way the engines sit under the bulk of the jet seems like a good way to deal with the seeker style chest and hide the legs away with some crotch splitting transformation. Also means I can use a blend of G1 and MP transformation to deal with the arms and head/cockpit

    As for colours I guess I should go for G1 but I will see how my mood takes me

    Looks great. But I don't think Starscream would use something russian as an alt mode. He would use something superior.

    yeah long time I wish I could say it was down to some hidden project but outside of pencilling a mosaic I cant say I've done much since Sixshot... I blame video games myself.
    funny thing is with window reflections most of it might end up getting lost.

    zing glad I'm not a Russian.

    really the choice was cosmetic and it seemed to solve a few issues regarding jet tf's and underside kibble.

    from a fiction POV I dont think Screamer would care as he'd be using cybertronian tech to power his engines and null rays. I guess the only limit would be aerodynamic.

    More than this being a good drawing, there's something about this design for Starscream that I like VERY much.

    Glad to see you taking a character you've already done and doing it again. Shows improvement even in your extremely talented level.

    As always, fantastic work. If there's one thing I've always liked about your style it's that you can easily follow how they'd transform without the designs feeling too simplistic. Your designs always feel like they'd make very cool, very solid toys, aside from being really neat spins on the classic characters.

    Just for the sake of looking back I've put all my SS designs in a sort of timeline from first till today to show a sort of evolution.

    kinda clear to see Energon SS played a big part in early designs as then the MP toy hit and I went with a more militaristic feel... also detail went up as did the size of the limbs till I started to cut it down in recent months.
