    TFA Motorarm and Gimlet

    First in a series of four pictures ;) 

    Anyway, those who watched Transformers Animated may remember the Cyber-Ninja Dojo, in particular the room of holographic head busts. It turns out that one of those heads belonged to an Animated version of the Beast Wars II sumo wrestler and musician (and offensive Mexican stereotype, but that's not the point) Motorarm. I decided that just a head was not enough, so I designed a full-fledged body for him!

    This is the first art piece I've done that had shading, BTW. The design on Motorarm's alt mode (a Cybertronian half-track) is meant to evoke a wrestling belt, not a cigar like it did in all of my sketches.

    Thoughts?

    EDIT: Here's a more vectory version. Better? I think so.

    ALSO EDIT: Gimlet is here!

    The headshot is there because I needed a bigger head to flesh out the design easier. Also so that people can see my design for the head clearer. Anyway, Gimlet is a Cybertronian crawler-thing, I don't know. He's a boxer!

    Watch out for DJ. His head designs gonna be weird, mainly because of my idea that these guys are martial artists mixed with the Jon Butler Trio. Yeah.

    Nice. Could you possibly go over your outline for the drawing with some vector graphics so we can have a clean copy?

    Nice. I remember that I was originally going to do TFA Jointron Bros as the Three Amigos before I remembered that Motorarm already existed.

    Wish I knew how to do that. Is that possible in GIMP?

    EDIT: Going over the lines now. Vehicle mode's done and lookin' pretty specky, as people 'round my pace say. Robot mode's gonna be a right biatch, 'specially the head...*wimpers*.

    Well, the original Motorarm did turn into a rhinoceros beetle, so that comparison is most apt!
