Autobot Mashup by fnook Autobot Mashup by fnook
::. UPDATED .:: -- I've added a NEW ballpoint pen drawing that I did just this morning whilst waiting for my scene to render. (Lower-right corner). It seems *Demonysh didn't know I could draw robots like this either.. :D

I realized this morning that I had these sketches in my sketchbook from ages ago, and I've never uploaded them to dA. So here they are... :D

They're born from frustration over the crap designs from the Michael Bay Transformers movies. I LOATHED the Transformer designs in the film, and knew whole-heartedly that I could design something FAR more appealing in my sleep. So over a few months my sketchbook pages started to fill with drawings like these..

Yes.. You see a transformer redesign on a Dr. Who Dalek in there. EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!!!! ^_^

The top middle one is my favorite. If I weren't so lazy, and had more angles to work with, I'd probably try and build myself a toy version.

Hah! That would be way cool to have a toy made of one of my mech designs. I would so have it on my desk at the studio. Maybe one day I'll do a turn - around of one of my favourite designs. I'm no engineer, so there's lots of cheats to just make them believable enough to look like they could transform into a similar alt. mode. But even having a non-transforming model of one of my designs would be sick. ^_^

Hate makes the best art fuel <3

Hehehehe.. It sure does. ^_^ You like these? I sometimes feel that I just keep falling back on the same design elements time and again, instead of challenging myself. Some of them have unique design elements though.. They are a heck of a lot of fun to do when the mood strikes me though.

If you don't keep consistent elements in their design, nobody can tell they're all on the same team.... or the same show.
The only thing that is catching my eye as being unnecessarily repetitive are the protrusions on the shoulder blade area, and you had to point out repetition first.

the new transformers movies kept them consistent by making each character made of shattered bits of car-accident wreckage and electronics shards floating over terminator skeletons.
Suddenly I feel like watching "Will it blend?"...

Hahahaha.. Yeah, I think I keep leaning on the shoulder-region protrusions because I've always liked the silhouette it produces. There are 2 or 3 in there where I stayed away from my habits though. I just don't like to fall into ruts in my design thinking. (it's way too easy to do). I'm particularly proud of the way the female autobot motorcycle turned out. I really like the Inner-skeleton-becomes-the-rider, and the-riders-helmet-is-her-head idea. :D

The designs from that game "Transformers: War for Cybertron" were BRILLIANT in my opinion. There were some elements that I would personally change, but as a whole they had my thumbs up. Far more appealing than that Bay-poo..

Jesus...I wish I could draw like that! I want to be a concept artist, but I don't know if I have the talent :(
