Transformers MTMTE TARN by Meiphon Transformers MTMTE TARN by Meiphon
Check out the close up! :D :iconhurrdurrplz:

Personal work, a challenge of sorts. Wanted to practice speed painting and try out a square brush for the first time (HGNN OH GOSHLOVE) buuutttt in the end there was nothing speedy about it. Sooo more of an illustration in the end. Chose Tarn because not only is he a crazy-awesome-badass-mutha-slagger, but he's insanely hard to draw. For me, anyways. I realize there are probably a lot of 'anatomy' mistakes. I have such a hard time with the perspective and planning out correct angles on plating, I suppose I just need to keep drawing robots.

I'd really love to draw MTMTE Drift next......... :iconomigawdplz:

MTMTE was a fast favorite for me, loved how much the world of TF was fleshed out. It was nice seeing the ways of their society on Cybertron, views on alt modes and commercial products. Mods, body exchanging etc. Wonderful humor with rich character building and perfect designs. <3 MILNE.

Okay...I'll stop blabbing now.

TARN HAS FIREY EYES WHOOOOOSHHHH. Maybe I shouldn't have added that...yes? No?

Oh poop, I just noticed more proportion issues. :icongrossplz:

DJD FOREVER!!!!! Tarn is a boss, and so is your illustration! Now if only we can get a picture of Vos and Kaon (my personal favorites!).

He looks almost as menacing as The Fallen though.

They have no relation. Tarns full design is very much unlike Soundwaves www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n… He's a radical Decepticon justice fighter. Weeds out any decepticons that have went rogue, left or showed mercy to autobots. Pretty much anyone not conforming to the strictest standards of the decepticon beliefs. He and his band of crazy extremists hunt down these 'traitors' and torture them.

Gotta fave this one too, because of that atmospherey negative space being all ominous, and such. Also, smoking gun. Totally good stuff, yo.

Soundwave has always had the decepticon symbol as his head from G1.

The Decepticon equivalent to Captain America? If you think about it... it kinda applies. His face is the 'Con logo, and his design is a that of a pure war machine typical of the faction. Heh

Very nicely done!!!

Awesome job...Hey, don't worry about his proportion now; 'practice makes perfect', and I think you did proportion very well; I don't notice anything majorly off. I love the Decepticon symbol on his face! And I like the firey eyes...Makes him look super-evil, or a die-hard servant of The Fallen! I've never heard of MTMTE...So that last sentence probably isn't correct. Meh.
Keep up the good work!

:iconstarscreamlaplz: That it does! I'm so torn right now between drawing ROBUTTS or monster girls....HGNNNN.

Well, can't take credit for his face design [link] is the full concept from the comic. UNF.
He's no servant, he's a torture specialist for naughty decepticons. Lets just say he makes the fallen guys look like a birthday bash.

Thank you!

Tarn is amazing. Don't worry about slow drawing, he wouldn't have liked you to hurry I suppose. Megatron fanboy with the double fusion cannon. Well, good luck with Drift!

As for the glowing optics, it reminds me of RotF Fallen, esp. on the poster ([link]) . That Fallen character was meant to be menacing, and was meant to be the Decepticon archetype, and was meant to be memorable. Tarn easily manages everything Bayfallen could not accomplish, and the way you draw him makes the analogy clear. I love that.

Haha. It's just that those damned amazeballs speed painters can churn out something 20x better in like....3 hours haha. HGNNN.
Haha :D Drift should be fun, all dem swords.

Oh wow, thank you!! Yeah, I wasn't too fond of that fallen character...reminded me of an 80's bad guy or something. Tarn would have been badass in his place, the DJD is a lot scarier.

Thanks again!
