Ghastly by grayorca Ghastly by grayorca
All hail orca!Megatron - the fourth TFP redesign I've done. As it took a couple tries to nail, I sincerely hope I have not disappointed his fans with this look. ^^;

The working title I picked for this in my sketchbook was "Majesty". But upon coloring him, ghastly was the word that lept to mind. :o Using a screengrab of G1 Megatron, I sampled his armor's color, and extrapolated from there to come up with the colors for the remainder of his markings. I know the end result is not quite the same as the galvanized steel coloration of TFP, but I kinda like it as a callback to G1. :nod:

And my music video of choice for him, "Sick and Twisted Affair": [link]

Design, art me

He is pretty. The environment around him suits him perfectly. I finally got the sketches on Prime done. So they will be up soon. I know i said that the other day, but i got busy. :shrug: So it will happen.

Oh, and the picture of Bee and SS, is my wallpaper. :glomp:

Thank you. :aww:

Nevermind it being a little late. I've no reason to think you wouldn't get it done. :excited: I'm eager to see.

Aww, good to hear. :D

Thanks. :aww: I'm pretty happy with his look overall. Though I'm sure he'd beg to differ, he'd look better with a standing dorsal fin. But he needed something distinct to peg him as the pod's old, seasoned leader. :nod:

Haha I'm sure he would :D

I agree, it really does give him that look :)

Why does this have to be so BEAUTIFUL. I can't think of anything to say because it keeps DISTRACTING ME, this is so amazing! I love his eye, and the water looks beautiful~ His fin is down, so that means he might have been in captivity... Source of his contept for humans? Either way, this is absolutely beautiful!

Now I'm imagining him making that sqeaking sound an orca makes. "Transform and rise uAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

Thank you. :aww: I can only say I'm glad people (you and others thus far) have approved of his look, and no trolls have gone off in the direction of "Oh noes, you turned him into Willy!" *eyesroll*

A collapsed fin seemed to be the most poignant thing to add to his design. And yes, it would factor into his backstory, having once been a miner-turned-gladiator-turned-revoluntarily-rebel. All of which are positions of oppression or resistance. :nod:

:giggle: The way I've started to imagine these guys lately, they're nonverbal. But that last part of your comment gave me a laugh.

:clap: I really like how Megs came out. Though I would have a bunch of rake marks on his body from occasional scuffles with Prime =p but that's me.


and I love the Music choice, I must download that :happybounce:
