    Edit: Here's the final version for peeps who don't want to trawl through the thread:

    [​IMG]

    Hi! I'm sort of new to this section of the boards, but I had this idea: since Lockdown is being released as a toy (not to mention in response to Side Wave's very cool drawing) I thought his counterpart, Prowl, should be represented as well... and not just any Prowl but his awesome Samurai armor upgraded version. This is still a very early work in progress but I'd really appreciate any feedback. I'm trying not to stick too close to the original design but I love the original color scheme. I've also incorporated some elements of various real types of Samurai armor.

    Here's a close-up of the face:

    And the full body:

    I'd like to make his kama/punch dagger/sword be able to separate into two katanas, or possibly a katana and wakizashi "Daisho" set.

    Any feedback and crits offered would be much appreciated, I have nothing but respect for all the talented people here.

    Thanks for looking!

    I like it. Stays true to the design of the character from Animated so he's recognisable but at the same time carries over the Movie aesthetic perfectly.

    Love the banner - very nice touch.

    Good hybridization of Animated Prowl with the movie aesthetic.

    i really like this, though i think i'd probably be upset if they included a prowl in the movies that wasnt a g1ish prowl.
