I'm doing pretty good! I've been in and out but I have been spending mots my time on Tumblr. xD Big FFXIV community I am apart of there but I still hop on here at least once a week to check on things! Good to see some work form you! Love your latest Beamer submission! :3
thank ya!! she was hard to find really good reference for actually. i mean all g1 fans know her, but really she only had a couple of minutes of screen time in the show total. it's weird how sometimes a character is so much bigger than their part. i enjoyed drawing her though.
I'm sorry if i came off rude, it was not the intent. and sorry for writing a novel for a reply, transformers is one of the subjects that fascinates me because of the possibilities of non-organic biology.
Dion follows a set function, neither one of them have functions that are enhanced by alt modes, also it is hinted at that not all Cybertronians (Cybertonians?) can transform or have vehicle forms, the decepticons in that episode transform into boxes and trucks. while the some of the civilians have a truck mode, not all of cybertron's populous necessarily can transform, in later continuities we see transformers ferrying around other Cybertronians like taxis. also the remains of the mass transit system are shown during the episode Desertion of the Dinobots. that said to each teir own interpitation of the techno-biological forms of the peoples of Cybertron and their unique shapeshifting abilities. just as long as we agree. Bay-formers do not come from cybertron or any other Transformer world.
I'm following ya there and I agree that there is evidence that there are older much older cybertronians who lack alt modes. I think more so than anything else, the lack of alt modes for Orion and Ariel are just the result of not being able to fit that into a 21 minute episode. lol But that's just me. Orion is later on show in other canon with an alt mode anyway. Bay-formers are just... something else entirely. That's not an aesthetic I'm a big fan of for the most part.
