    A lot of these guys have/will require quite a bit of guess work since most of their reference photos show them as slightly detailed silhouettes. Since one or two of these fellows didn't have any sort of reference images, I had to pull their designs out of my ass.

    I also based their coloring on preexisting versions of their characters (ie Unicron Triology, G1, official concepts, etc).

    UPDATE: ACEO of "Bubbles", the 13 member with the energy sphere/barrier.

    Starting work on their size comparison charts. I'm tweaking minor details and colors as I go to make them more accuracte to the vague silhouettes seen in the show and their descriptipns from official texts.

    Nice work you got so far!

    I assume that the one in the middle is Prima.

    So who are the others?

    Just simply awsome man!!!:thumb  I'm SO looking foward to seeing the final picture!

    So it is really Prima in the middle? And is Solus Prime the one on top of the middle?

    And I'm gussing the ones from the top left to the lower rght are Alpha Trion,The Mini con prime, Vector Prime and Megatronus AKA The Fallen?

    I've done some more work on this. I scan and updated version of this and post it tomo- er... later today.

    Does anyone know what the "Beast Prime" is supposed to turn into? I thought I remember reading somewhere that he turned into some sort of four-legged critter, but in the screen caps from Prime, the Prime that I assume is in beast mode looks more like an electrified serpent/dragon or something.

    Thanks, everyone :D 

    The two on the left: Vector Prime, the "Bubble Boy" (as I like to call him)
    Middle Column: Solus Prime, Prima, and the Liege Maximo
    Right: Megatronus

    Gracias. Making progress. Slowly, but surely.

    I don't get why people think the one in the energy sphere is the Minicon though. He's a bit smaller than some of the others, but he's not that tiny.

    Anyways, some more progress. Pictured so far:
    - Nexus Prime
    - Vector Prime
    - "Bubble Boy"
    - Solus Prime
    - Prima
    - The Liege Maximo
    - Megatronus Prime aka The Fallen
    - "Winged Centaur Guy"
    - Amalgamous Prime (the one with the robe that also sports Loki-horns)

    Hey soymonk, if you do a full-body of Solus, can you base it off of an Eldar Howling Banshee?

    Most of the portraits are done. Some just need colors that I'm heading out to get today.

    Need to figure out how to work on the border/knot design that ties all the portraits together.

    Why?

    Gracias :)

    The quick full-body shot we got very much reminded me of the WH40k Eldar. Plus, with the way she was doing a war scream with the magnus hammer was ridiculously awesome. The Banshees have psychic masks that terrify their enemies when they scream.

    Basically, rule of cool.

    Picture's done. Here's to a new year!

    Ah, I didn't bother to google what they were, so I thought you were talking about some variation of the spirits for a videogame or something.

    Thanks again, mate!

    Thanks. It was a painstaking process.

    As I finished up the picture and fiddle around with the brightness and contrast on the screen caps, I noticed that some of the portraits weren't as accurate as I would've liked, so I'm not as happy with this picture as I originally was.

    I've made notes though for future reference (like how Amalgamous' shade of green would look better if it were paler to make him look more ghostly or how Vector's beard should have a triangular tip as it meets with where his mouth and epic 'stache are) if I plan to do full body drawings or a group shot.

    Awesome. Well done.

    Where did you get some of the colour ideas from?
