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:

Aw, thanks! :D I think... I think I'll draw them both!!! :D Because I stink at deciding between two things that are both awesome! :XD:

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.
Armadria Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011  Student Digital Artist
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

Thanks! :D Good thing we as humans don't have the same differences in height. Think about how much that would mess up our architecture!
