    I will start off by saying that apart from Storm bringer, the Armada mini series and the wiki I don't really know much about the guy so if this seems a bit out of character well that's why.

    After seeing his new toy (and wanting one) I wanted to do a picture of him in my own style so after reading his old bio I got the impression he was a villain in much the same way as your typical Bond villain is a villain Calm, respectful and maybe even a good dinner host... till you mess with his plans and then he will mess you up.

    So for the pose unlike a lot of the media out their for this guy I wanted to show the calmer side rather then the phyco side. So I've done him in this pose as if he's celebrating his plan coming together (while the hero slowly lowers into a pit of sharks or something)

    Thunderwings bio from the TFwiki (well part of it anyway)
    n a better world, Thunderwing would be the ideal Decepticon leader. He's fearless, ruthless, and immensely powerful, while uncommonly concerned about the welfare of his fellow Decepticons. For this mindset, Thunderwing gets a high approval rating from his peers, but, sadly, this is not the whole story.
    Thunderwing's vice is, simply, obsession. When his mind sets its sights on a who or what that furthers his goals, he will stop at nothing to achieve victory. Slowly but surely, his esteem for his colleagues is replaced by single-mindedness, until finally Thunderwing awakens from his haze, potentially victorious, but either abandoned or surrounded by the bodies of the few friends who tried valiantly to snap him out of it. In these dark moments, the usually noble Thunderwing is as two-faced as any halfwit Decepticon.

    so actually this is fitting for the Marvel comics Thunderwing. but with that said i would love to see your rendition of the Stormbringer Thunderwing, you know all crazy and whatnot.

    You turned him into a pimp! Nah, I'm kidding, but it's nice to see a more calm and collected Decepticon leader. Very cool and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the color.

    They way he looks now, I'm almost wishing the wings folded into more cape-looking kibble.

    This is in a nut shell how I wanted him to work.

    Also colours are up a bit later then what I'd like but I have a good reason as my Laptop died on me a few days ago and its finally back from the shop and I've only now just gotten around to reinstalling all my old software.

    Splendid work. This is how I have always pictured Thunderwing - the suave, sophisticated rogue.

    I can see where you're coming from, but I think it gives his bots a lot of consistency.

    Also, Transformers has been sameface since the beginning. :lol
