Character profile for Emirate Xaaron.

I've used information from this Xaaron profile librarian-bot.deviantart.com/a… by :iconlibrarian-bot: and the information available on him at tfwiki.net/wiki/Xaaron for reference, as well as making some stuff up myself to make his character profile.

Awesome line art by the extremely talented :iconjoeteanby: who is also responsible for designing Xaaaron's cool looking alt mode from scratch, as its not previously been seen before in any comics (as far as I know anyway).

Colours by me.

The MTMTE page template has been supplied by Autobot-Windracer :iconautobot-windracer: and can be found here autobot-windracer.deviantart.c…

I've sort of turned these profile pages into a kind of series. Here's all the other characters I've worked on hellbat.deviantart.com/gallery…

Would you like a G1-style tech specs card of Xaaron? I do them in my spare time.

Sure, that sounds cool.  Although, if you use this art, please be sure to credit :iconjoeteanby: too, as he's responsible the awesome line art.

Yeah, I'm always careful to credit artists where necessary, I'll upload the tech specs when I'm finished.

Emirate Zaaron is a great "Transformers" character.
hellbat's avatar
He certainly is.

You did a great job on the colours and love the bio.
I'd love to see a figure of him at some point.
hellbat's avatar
Thanks mate, you did a great job on the lines too.  Yeah, a toy of him would be cool.

I love this character's bio, a rare one to find!
I also love Joe's art on this character it fits so well and it is portrayed with his style to make the character look like a old timer. I don't want to make this character sound down graded but his alt mode design reminds me of that "garbage ship" from the G1 episode "Surprise Party".
The colours are great, like almost a Golden Age colour scheme and I get the impression the colour fade on one side of his structure is intentional? Like he has yellow toy fade on one half and other side the paint is still intact.
The last giggle I had was when I read his weakness, it must be all that rust is in his joints haha.
Overall a great MTMTE profile page for this meaningful character.
Fantastic team effort!

That's a great way of looking at the colouring. Fits him great! :)

My pleasure! Hehe.

Cheers JP.  Lol yeah, I kept thinking of some kind of Star Wars style garbage ship while I was colouring the alt mode.  The colour fade is unintentional though, but if it fits the part, its all good.  In the UK comics, he couldn't transform, check this tfwiki.net/wiki/Xaaron for more info on him.

Now that's one clever alt mode!
JoeTeanby's avatar
Cheers. Was tricky to come up with one as he's got no features or kibble on his bot mode. :)

I love your design for his alt mode.  I think it suits him perfectly.

Fantastic, I didn't even know he had an alternate mode!
hellbat's avatar
Thanks.  He doesn't have an official alt mode.  This ones been designed entirely from scratch by Joe.

hellbat's avatar
