    HI GUYS!

    I'm just in the starting blocks of beginning a montage project and I'm already stuck! So I came up with this idea; why don'y YOU tell ME about YOUR favourite G1-formers!
    Let me know who you wanna see in my montage and why! :D 

    I will be gratefull for all the answers/help/requests you post!

    Here is a little sample, my favourite; Starscream! (Sorry for the crappy pic, my scanner is on hiatus for the moment so I had to use my phone-cam.)

    and the colored sketch

    I'll post some more sample pics soon so you get to know my style and what I'm about!

    Hope to get a bunch of answers!

    straxus, because despite looking so cool and being so hard and generally evil and leading the decepticons with an iron fist for so long, and despite this:

    it took him 20 years to get a toy, so needs all the showcasing he can get to try and redress the balance a bit.

    Fort Max (although I'd go for Marvel scale rather than toon scale, unless you've got a sheet of paper the size of Bristol), Thunderwing (whichever version you like!) and/or Goldbug (just because you can never have enough Goldbug. Unless you're Grimlock.) :thumb

    I've been thinking about Hot Rod too, so I'll probably put him in there;)

    Hahaha "The size of Bristol"... I LoL;ed
    but yeah, I don't have one of those:/ so it'll have to be comic-scale, haha.
    Thunderwing is an awesome character! Good idea:D  He's got fangs:D 
    And Goldbug ... hm, I got to stand with Grimlock on that one;)  haha

    I have to go with an oldie but a goodie, my favorite G1-former and all around character is Optimus Prime, but I absolutely love his Powermaster form.

    EDIT- forgot to comment on your Starscream, that is a great damn drawing bro, really great style you've got.

    Fortress Maximus

    New sketch of 'Fortress Maximus' added (look up top!), it was a quicky, took about an hour, drawing and inking.
    This will probably not be the finished result, I think I'll put him in a more dynamic pose, but it was good practice since I've never took the time of drawing "Max" before.

    Again sorry for the low quality pic, scanner's still down:( 

    Drop a note!

    Added a couple of head sketches I've made for Devastator, Megatron, Powerglide and Hot Rod, just to get the hang of their faces and helmets.
    These are just sketches and I bet I'll buckle down when I'm doing the real thing:) 

    This time I used my webcam to take the pics, haha:p 

    Keep the request coming fellas and ladies or I will have to do this without you!:eek:

    Starscream; In Color!

    There we go! Now my scanner's working again!

    Took some of my time to color my Starscream sketch just to get some flow into it, the result isn't perfect but it was good practice:) 

    Drop a note and tell me what you think, and keep requesting and giving tips on wich characters to draw!

    All hail Megatron!

    At long last!

    Here is the first draft of Megatron, the ruthless leader of the Decepticons!

    I'm gonna go back and touch up some lines and add some more details, then it's finished!

    Mohahahaha!
