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

Love those markings :D He looks absolutely stunning with that flopped dorsal.

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:

I contented myself with the knowledge that maybe it's been a while since they last fought, and he's had time to heal the lesser scrapes. ;) But in the event either I or someone else gets around to designing a TFP Prime orca, I'll have a go at confrontation scene of sorts. Admittedly, I don't have a knack for drawing/coloring scrapes and bruises. Need some more practice first. ^^;

Glad I could share it with you. *has rewatched video at least six times now* :D

HE'S BEAUTIFUL.

Seriously it looks just like him and now I most definitely will have to draw him.

I might even give a shot at designing some of the Autobots. I can't have Megatron without a Prime to go with him after all XD

Also you have nice choices in music videos :D

:phew: Thank you. :aww:

Good luck. I'd be very interested in seeing how you'd draw him. At some point, maybe I can get around to ref sheets for the 'Cons. But right now just getting them redesigned at all is the priority. ;)

Have at it. I'd welcome any help anyone would like to offer in establishing a TFO-verse, as it were. :giggle:

Thanks again. I thought it'd be a cute little supplement to include, as there are so many good ones out there (has a iTunes playlist some 13 hours long of nothing but TF music videos :P). I even have a sketch of Starscream to outline/color ATM (besides the others), for the very reason I have not posted anything of him with an accompanying music video yet. ^^;

Music gives me a lot of inspiration to draw sometimes and I would very much like to help establish a TFO verse :D I'm not so good at drawing robots but I can draw whales decently, so this could be fun ^^

Same here. If I was any good at humanoid forms, I'd practice. But it seems like creatures without limbs are what I am better suited to. :aww:

As I said, I'd be grateful for the assistance. :)
