    Since I finished the Terrorcons I thought I would start on their Autobot enemies... the Technobots. I haven't seen anyone doing them (although I am fairly new here and I could easily be wrong. I decided to make the combiner first and then try to build the component bots out of its design. Can't wait to draw some retro looking Cybertronian vehicles.

    ADDED SCATTERSHOT (1, 2), STRAFE, LIGHTSPEED, AFTERBURNER, NOSECONE... DONE!

    Lord Ramulus: the text is really small in teh pop up window... but at full size it is at least legible. As for how coherent it is, well... lets say I am more an fan artist than I am a fan writer.

    B'Bantor: Autocrotch FTW.

    Bort826TFWorld: Now see... I clearly did not look around enough. Nice work.

    Autocrotch!

    Odd to see Strafe in yellow and purple as opposed to his normal red and white. Still, can't wait to see the individual bots (especially Lightspeed, the adorable little dreamer)!

    Here is Scattershot (in combat mode with the tank alt mode). Normal robot mode and ship mode are coming next.

    Here is Lightspeed... my version may remind you of someone else though... just slightly.

    Ooh! Ooh! I know who Lightspeed looks like! I know!








    It's Woody, isn't it? :D 

    In all serious, was the "Strafe whose color scheme is so, so wrong" bit a crack at my comment? Or was it more of a "Autobots aren't usually purple" kind of thing? These things are things I need to know (along with "who's the guy in your avatar?")!

    Nailed it!

    It is honestly alittle of both. When I went about deciding on my take on Technobots my idea was that each one of them was a mixed clone of two Transformers present at the time of their 'creation'. Once I decided that I settled on a color scheme for each Technobot that blended the color palettes of the two transformers it cloned from.

    In Scattershot's case he is Grimlock and Bumblebee colors... all greys, dark reds, gold and neon yellow.

    Lightspeed was Perceptor's bright red and Bumblebee's bright yellow.

    But Strafe was supposed to be a clone of Perceptor and Skywarp. So when I drew Computron I just made his right arm mostly Skywarp colors... without thinking that the Strafe everyone knows is the exact opposite of that, mainly white and red. I actually found I felt kinda bad veering so off the grid with his redesign. So when it came time to draw him by himself I compromised. I made his robot form mostly white and light grey and his alt form purple and dark grey. Where the yellow bits on the arm mode were supposed to come from I have no idea... so I used some common sense and ditched them in the Strafe drawing all together.

    Ah, that makes a sort of sense. And I do like it when things make a sort of sense.

    But seriously, who is that mysterious smirking bot in your avatar? He intrigues me.

    I think that's his TFA Motormaster.

    Oh, and I love Lightspeed.
