I've been working on crafting a fully formed TF OC the past few months and finally found your tutorial. Many, many thanks for putting so much effort into this tutorial and sharing it! Your step-by-step visualisation is particularly well done and very helpful for me.

This tutorial is so helpful.  Transformers are so hard to draw and I've been wanting to design a Transformer OC but didn't know where to start. So this helps a lot. You are awesome!

This is absolutely amazing! Not only is your artwork lovely, but I also love the way you describe things. I think I've learned more about designing a Transformer than I've ever learned about how to draw anime [from those 'how to draw' books]! …Though I'm a perfectionist, and need to make sure about how transformations work before designing my character. |D

On that note, I was actually wondering if you could give me a bit of assistance on that? I'm trying to create a femme Autobot with an alt mode of a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and am having troubles trying to figure out how I should structure her around it… Any tips or ideas on how I can make it work? (I can also offer more of a visual, since I know exactly what look I'm going for here. I have references pictures already at the ready.)

what you call your character is up to you ^^ What I'd call it would be illogical considering the jet mass doesn't fit into a Delorean.

if you feel offended by a simple tutorial than you'd might want to change the way you look at things because I won't change my turorial, sorry ^^ fortunately many people think my tutorials helpful so I'm still content with them :)

I can't apply these -awesome- tips right now, simply because I have no way of doing digital art, and using things like this never works for me with the traditional pencil-and-eraser... but as soon as I get something to do digital art, I'll definitely put it all to use! 8D

Hm, I don't really understand why you need to go digital to do the things I explained in this tutorial ^^ but let me see what you come up with once you get to it ^^

XD Alright, I will. :) I've tried this method with my traditional art... honestly, I just can't pull it off that way. ^^;

hm ^^; well but honestly changing to digital art won't make you able to pull it off if it doesn't work on paper either ^^; the basics don't differ on the medium you use

XD; I know. I just have trouble with the pencils and brushes I use- I'm happy with the results of the skeletons I make, but I can't get much further in the art after that point. Smearing when I try to erase pencil is the main problem, really. ;I That might have something to do with the amount of pressure I use, and not the tools... xc I've tried digital art at a friend's house, and it was wonderful~ but until I'm able to get something of my own to do it with, I can't just keep invading his house to do my art. ^^;

Well the tips are always the same and apply for every sort of altmode - you character will be convincing if you keep the mass logical, include necessary parts to identify the vehicle behind it and take care to include a robotic -touch - gaps, joints, mechanics and so on. The difficulty with motorcycles and small vehicles of that sort is the little mass. All you can do there is to either make your character thin or small. Where you place the tired or certain parts is up to you and follows the same ideas shown with the flyers and cars. 

hope this makes sense to you ^^ if not, let me know (I also have several character designs in my gallery which are based on motor cylces if you want to check out some ideas)

I'm heavy surprised than no one commented on this glorious tutorial( or at least second part of it).

But let me to ask you one question: You covered the flyiers and both here and earlier the cars-based altmodes. But what about motorcycles/scooters? Any tips how to make it both work and not to forget( too much) about mass-shifting( okay I know Arcee as a motorcycle was transforming into her leg and the rest comes out of nowhere).
Why I'm asking about it? Because few days ago( after nearly 1,5year of struggle) I came to some sense with designer of my character that was given a motorcycle altmode, but now as I look at this it lacks something.
How to make this altmode work?

Sorry for late response- life.

Thank you for you comment, everything is perfect clear, just one more thing: if you chose the one specific model either of a motorcycle or car or flying vehicle- do you aim( and do you thing other people should aim) for recognizing the brand( like "Oh this is Harley Davidson Road King/ Honda Civic IX/ F-22" [nah just random brands]) or it's more important to be able to tell "it's motorcycle/car/jet"?
