    Thunderwing head study

    Hello, I'm trying to create a version of Thunderwing based on the TFP aesthetics. I've been doodling some head concepts first to decide a proper face.

    I'm deciding on an altmode too, been considering an airplane slightly based on the F-18 Superhornet. Lemme know what you think! I'll update the thread as I go on. I'll be working on the robot body now.

    Update: a (very) rough sketch of the body shape.

    Yep, I'm between the top right and bottom left too. I'll probably make a new head with elements from both.

    I'm favoring the bottom left, myself. Good sketches! Hope to see a finished product in the future!

    My favorite has to be the upper left one.
    :lol 
    ...Seriously though, I like the lower left one.

    One problem is that Megatron already uses some of those facial features. Maybe have the skull face be a battle mask?

    I like the design. The head looks slightly too big, though. Don't make it too much smaller. Just a tiny bit would do.

    I like the details and the general look of the body, but the body proportions themselves are a bit too cartoony. Make his proportions closer to that of Megatron, and you'll have a winner.
