How's the weather up there? by Armadria How's the weather up there? by Armadria
A more-or-less tentative height chart for my main TF OC's. All done with no references of past drawings, of course; I never think to carry them around with me. I probably should start doing that.

For those of you recently joining me in my exploits, here's a quick introduction (from tallest to smallest):

Soundbarrier, being the gentleman of the group, never hesitates to transport bots or cargo when he's needed to. He has a considerable amount of patience, and it takes a lot to tick him off.

Tradewinds, on the other hand, is very private, and prefers to work alone. Usually the disk on her back that acts as a second processor is her only companion on her patrols.

Siberian Express is an old locomotive that used to be a foreman of a huge mining colony on an ice planet.

Axle and Sprocket are Autobot bondmates, and quite the unlikely pair. Axle's a rather paranoid, cowardly bot that has a tendency to be heroic at bad times. Sprocket's a recon officer who's likes to resort to diplomacy rather than violence, but her shoulder missiles aren't just there for decoration.

Midnight Sun is a former Decepticon assassin with not too much to say. She has a bad tendency to be impulsive, and is even more of an ice cube than Tradewinds.

Oh I definitely have to draw either Tradewinds or Soundbarrier for our art trade! They look awesome! :D

Awesome! They both started off as relatively minor characters for me, but are now upped to main character status. XD I'd love it if you drew either one of them! I'm sure you'll make them look great. :dummy:

Hahaha I was actually thinking about drawing your character with either Soundwave or Starscream; now to figure out who. XD Quick question, though, I saw your drawing of Beats and it's a bit difficult to tell what's going on with the helmet. Are those wires on the top? Also, does he have a face, or is he like Soundwave?

She is like Soundwave. No visible face, just a visor.

And those are indeed wires on top of her head. They're the wires to the headphones, arranged in such a way that they look like pig-tails. And she has little horns coming out from them. I know, it's kinda hard to see. ^^; That was my first drawing of her and it just kinda came out that way...

I would recommend drawing her with Soundwave. In the fic I have brewing in my head, she is placed under his wing because of their similarities. Like never talking, being good with radio waves and other frequencies, intel, and stuff like that. She identifies with Soundwave a lot and kinda sees him as a father figure. Not sure how he sees her yet though...

Oh, and she's also quite crazy. And I mean CRAZY!!! Like, literally nuts. She went absolutely mad after Cybertron was destroyed, because she was so in love with her home. So yeah, she's nuts. Very, very, very nuts.

But that's probably too much info, huh? xD

I need to do something like this for my TF OC's but I'm really bad at working out heights.

My height charts kept changing for a long time. In one of my original charts, Sprocket and Axle came up to Soundbarrier's waist. Finally I started looking at real-life planes and vehicles and coming to the conclusion that there's no way a Prius could be anywhere near the size of a C-17. I'm not sure how tall they actually are, but I don't really feel like I need to go into specifics. XD

Ah, Most of my bots are cars so I guess they'd be about the same height the shortest one of mine would probably be Jumpstart as she's a motorbike

I love the lil sketch you got here (so did not realize how small Axle, Sprocket and Midnight Sun were compared to the others) and when I got to the end of the descriptions, I sadly could not stop cracking up with your usage of "ice cube."

Yeah, she's tall, but not as tall as Soundbarrier. XD Half the time she's alone out in space, so she ends up looking quite small in comparison to everything else. Thank you!

If Soundbarrier didn't like it, chances are he'd be creeping around on his hands and knees in an attempt to look smaller. XD Looks like that's not the case.

I know, right? D: I figured if Soundbarrier was roughly the size of a C-17, that would make a Honda Accord and a Prius look quite small in comparison. [link] Of course, that just makes it so that it's a good thing that Soundbarrier's on their side. XD

Lol, height charts are getting popular around here...:D

If I was big enough, I would glomp Soundbarrier...but I shall settle with his pinky finger.

I've been working on height charts for a long time, but this is the first time I've really settled on a final height for all of them. XD For a while Sprocket and Axle were at his hips, and then I thought, "taller!" :D

I'm sure Soundbarrier gives great hugs; even with just his pinky finger.

Ffff yeah, I just can't bring myself to make any of my characters that tall. Then they could crush their friends O.O Or...make dating awkward :XD:

I shall take it! *hugs pinky*

Soundbarrier's wife Songstorm is only about a head taller than Axle. XD The good news is the smaller bots can see the guy coming from a mile away, so they know to get out of his way if he's not paying attention.
