    Bah weep grahnah weep nini bong!

    This project is going to take me a while to complete, and I’ve already been working for over a month solid, so I figured I’d start a WIP thread.

    The TLDR is I want to make a blender animation of every single major continuity leader fighting, but it’s one fight scene swapping the models with every major punch or sword swing, kinda like a multi fandom edit you’d find on YouTube.

    I’m going to make a YT video that recaps what I’ve done so far a bit more, but that’s the general gist, in the meantime enjoy the many model’s I’ve made so far! Still got 54 more to do……

    Thank you! Animated was easily one the models I was most intimidated to make, its such a hard art style to convert to 3D, and I haven't watched as much of the show as I'd like. I ended up sending screenshots to die hard animated fans and getting their feedback to get it as close as possible to the show

    Managed to finish of Big Convoy! Think he turned out pretty well!

    I’ve never even seen this convoy before, having a Longhorn alt mode seems pretty cool! Does this mean u only have a few more models to actually make before animating?

    Sadly I have.. A LOT more models to make before I can even consider animating. I have another 53 planned, not to mention backgrounds and props weapons etc, but I’m just going to keep chipping away at it!

    Speaking of chipping away, here’s Beast Machines Optimus Primal!

    Awesome job!! I can't believe you were able to make the ugliest design ever somehow look better. Good luck on your next 53!

    Fire Convoy is ready to roll! Think he's one of the most accurate ones I've done so far.
    All those Haslab backers really hammered home there's a lot of fans of this design and it needs the extra care!

    This looks great! (and that's coming from a guy who wants to see many horrendous things happen to this design)

    Thank you! I must admit I wasn’t the biggest Beast Machines fan, but the more time I’ve spent with the design recreating it has made me appreciative of the unique style they took. Think it’s the first time they looked more like aliens and less robots!

    woww. I bet this one was one of the hardest to model, because translating that 2D design that seems to change proportions from every shot in TFA is not easy. It turned out great! Very good job :)

    Thank you! And it really was. Add to the fact I’ve not actually watched much of the show, but it has a lot of fans, I was super worried I’d mess it up. Lots of feedback from the wonderful folks in the Hobbies With Jose Discord helped get me on the right track!

    You haven't watched the show?! U really should, once you have the time! I think it's the best Transformers show ever. Similar to Cyberverse though, it gets really good when you get past season 1.

    Might stick it on in the background while I 3D model then! Think it’s all up on YouTube now so that makes it easy to find :D
