April OC 04 - Seismic Wave by will-Ruzicka April OC 04 - Seismic Wave by will-Ruzicka
:iconsoulless--one:'s TFA character 'Seismic Wave'. Based off of what I learned from watching the show, I guess the thought is he's based on the same protoform as Shockwave?

I've never tried drawing in the TFA style before, and I will be honest, I thought the style looked best when the Japanese made their opening for the show. It was still stylized, but moved more three dimensionally, and that's kind of what I tried to get here. I also let a little Megaman Legends influence my approach. And finally, I didn't know what colors he should be, so I just went with a monochromatic look.

It's really good, but it's one of those times I can't comment on why it's good since there's not a lot going on beyond the obvous, it just is. Nice job.

Thanks. It's pretty simple... and the design for Shockwave (who this is obviously based on) was a real neat design to begin with.

Thank you. ^^

Looks a lot like Shockwave to me, in fact that's what I thought when I saw the thumbnail :ohnoes:

Cool none the less :dummy:

I'm not going to call people out for when their OC character looks like an official one. :/

He looks amazing ;v; and yes I still need to color him =v= oh and I agree with the style, I think they went for that style because it was meant for younger children. Well I think they didn't count for the older audience to go nuts for it. I wasn't too fond of it at first but as I watched some of the episodes were really good.

In my opinion, I think a lot of Cartoon Network shows are designed in such a way that they're more 'graphical' rather than 'three dimensional.' So a lot of their shows, to me, look kind of sloppy. But what the japanese intro showed was that the designs could still be stylized and move in three dimensions.

sorry... rambling.

Glad you like it.

Don't say sorry, it's all good if yer rambling. Always love to hear the opinions of others. :la: And I get what you mean, when I saw the intro I thought that perhaps they were going to redo the whole show that way. It would have looked awesome if they did. I always love what Japan can do with such shows. And they toys were great quality too, that metal shine they gave them it was wow. I wanted to get my hands on some.

I do. And I know you must have felt awkward, given how much he really looks like Shockwave and getting confuse ^^; I should do more changes to him, enough to be told apart yet you can tell he came from the same protoform mold as Shockwave. I thank you for drawing him. Really admire your work.

To be honest, I never looked at a design of Shockwave when working on your piece... and since I knew he was supposed to only be based on Shockwave, I felt I could change the shapes as I pleased. I have not compared my drawing or your drawing to the original shockwave design, so I'm not sure how close they are.

And don't worry about it. So long as your having fun with the fandom, who cares what anyone else thinks, right?

I agree that something was...lost in translation a bit between the intro and the show. Honestly, I was one of those few (I guess) that could just never get into TFA. Something just seemed to be missing. Honestly I've felt the same about almost everything Transformers on TV since the Gen-1 80's series until Prime which, IMHO, has come the closest to emulating the Gen-1 era while being stylized in a modern context due to the CG visual approach. Regardless, the above is a rather cool Anime design.

I didn't like TFA's designs when I first saw it... but eventually I gave it a shot once the designs started to grow on me and I found that the writing wasn't that bad. There were moments that I was not fond of... but overall I liked it.

Actually that is Seismicwave, he is similar to Shockwave because they share the same mold ^^
