    My attempt to redesign Dead End from G1 to Prime as inauguration of the new Transformers series.

    This is the first time that I draw by tablet! :D 

    I made him with a lot of reference of the Dead Ends from other franchises, like his golden face (from G1 Dead End), his helmet (from WfC Dead End) or the Dodge Viper GTS-R as his alt-mode (from Alternators Dead End). The alt-mode's paintjob is taken from here

    This time his personality is different, he's not feel sad anymore, he doesn't feel anything apart his pride of being a Decepticon untill his death. His function is the mercenary (he is often nicknamed "The White Mercenary" because of his colors) with a high reputation.

    Here is the picture as deviantArt page

    The choice of white threw me, I would have expected him to be black or maroon to be more inkeeping with previous iterations. the colours as they are remind me of Drift more than anyone, if it wasn't for the head that would have been my guess identity wise.

    Art, design and colouring are very good, just not sure that they are the right colours for Dead End.

    I choose these colours for representing him as a cold person (cold like the ice, this is why I choose white) and it can't be suspect (an Autobot never could suspect that a light colored vehicle may be a Decepticon, they got darker colours).

    Gotta agree with Storm, whilst the art and colours are superb, nothing about him says Dead End to me at all, including I'm afraid your bio :(  Dead End just has to be the nihilistic creepy loner, or it's just not him.

    I do however think it works very well for Breakdown.

    If you're worried about his personality, then don't, maybe he's not nihilist this time, but he's still a creepy loner.

    I wanted to change his personality making him without emotions because of the changing of Breakdown from TFP too.

    Great design and color scheme. The changes to his colors and personality don't bother me. Seems to be on par with the TFP version of Brakedown. Honestly, imagining this guy as a cg model in the show makes him look even better, lol (which is good, as I think this guy would look great in the show).

    Keep up the good work. Any plans to do the other Stunticons?

    Thanks, I also think how he can turn out as CG model. It would be awesome!

    I don't think to draw another Stunticon, I drew Dead End just because is a favourite character of mine and since the official TFP Breakdown is too big for be a car, I don't consider that the Stunticons would exist in TFP either...

    looks a bit like Animated has made an unshakable presence in your art :D 

    Regardless, the panels and protrusions really capture the Prime design philosophy. Cool design1
