Solid Trailbreaker design. Body looks tough and rough, but his face is always kinda friendly and mild mannered. I like it!

It's really inspiring to see all these designs! I love doing characters and I love Transformers, but wow How to Robots? It's proving harder than I imagined.

I really enjoy the detail you put into your work, each character has such great visual distinctiveness. Avidly enjoying MTMTE too, and as original G1 fan it's great to see Transformers thriving and growing with new stories and art! Thanks for all your hard work.

Looks like he's mostly Armada laced with a little TFP. But This is BADASS! PERFECT EVEN!
Can you do his vehicle mode too?

Trailbreaker's one of my fave Autobots, and I love the redesign. At least his windscreen's not covering his face anymore!

Mine too, doesn't have many fans but he's quite a useful Autobot that's able to generate nearly impenetrable energy shields.

interesting, IT DOES remind me of Transformers War for Cybertron in some way, and the kibble reminds me of Transformers Prime.

What does he become?

When you do these designs, do you also draw the character from the rear? Or do you just have the rest of the changeform details placed so well in your head that you instinctively remember how to draw them? Obviously when they hit the books you need to know what that looks like too, so I was just curious.

for this guys i designed half the robot mode first, the upper torso. i had a very loose shoulder design in place. then i designed the alt mode, then i went back and finished the robot mode. it doesn't always happens like that, but for this guy it did. i usually have the way they will look from behind in my head, but there are times i put it down on paper :)

Kingoji Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012
Cool... So do you also try and keep the transformation itself similar to the original? I'd imagine that would help a lot with my initial querie of kibble placement.

:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012  Professional
the design has some elements of the original transformation, but then there are a lot of panels that fold together that place on his back.
its a bit complicated to explain. guess one day i'll have to make a transformation sheet for him :p
the front wheels are on the shoulders, the back wheels are near the feel. there are a couple parts that rotate around. maybe when i post up the alt mode you'll have a better understanding?

That explanation makes sense to me. I wasn't really trying to work out HOW he transformed as much as understand the conceptual side of it all. Thanks very much for your time, Alex!
