    Working on an animated Superion design, it'll probably be a cross between G1 and the universe toy. So here's the head, any suggestions would help.

    When making an Animated version of a previously existing character, you should always try to put your own spin on it, and not be restricted by the original design. A lot of people who make TFA renditions of G1 characters just keep the G1 design but make it more elastic looking. And while that looks ok, it doesn't really set it apart from the original.

    So what I'll say is, don't be afraid to add things or take away things from the original. The way he looks now, it just looks like the Energon/ROTF head in that elastic style with no differences. And while this is ok, it just doesn't make him very memorable in my opinion.

    Hope this helps.

    word

    its actually a same that while so many artists can pull of the style they seem to limit themselves when it comes to the actual design
