    Hello, today I bring you my interpretation of the TFA Universe's incarnation of Galvatron. Alt mode is a Space Cannon / Gunship, with an artillery mode similar to the original G1 toy. I decided that the pointy teeth helped to show that he's more wild and unstable than Megatron.

    This version of Galvatron appeared from a strange portal near New Kaon some time after Megatron's capture by autobot forces in planet Earth. He took control of the city by brute force, as no decepticon warrior could top him. Galvatron has inexplicably accurate knowledge about future events and seems to be related to Megatron somehow. Cyclonus' mood changed considerably upon Galvatron's arrival, and he now serves as the mysterious conqueror's right hand.

    - Superior speed and strength
    - Galvanic Cannon can reduce anything to ash
    - Mentally unstable, will crush foes and allies if enraged.

    The face really reminds me of Hordak for some reason - excellent work!

    Thanks everyone!

    I was planning on doing Thunderwing next, but I might post some sketches first to decide on his face.

    I really like it. The line work is so cool and that face will haunt my nightmares!

    A peice of consturtive criticism would be that he looks just a little squat due to the proportions. From the description you gave with it, it would seem like he should be tall and imposing. Right now, he seems more like Wolverine, short but really broad. If that's your intention, then excellent! Otherwise, just keep in mind proportions (ie-how many heads tall the character is).

    Like I said, I like the design. It feels like it could have been done for the show itself. You picked up on several of the design elements while not slaving yourself to them.
