TFP Elitea (Elita-1 Fan-Made TFP Design) by Lumen-Terra TFP Elitea (Elita-1 Fan-Made TFP Design) by Lumen-Terra
**Update** It's canon that Elita is either dead or lost in TFP. Because of this Elitea changed as well. I've also revamped her design.**

I've finally got the courage to post her. I've had sketched this a long time ago and now, thanks to 3 special ladies on this site I think I can post it now. All the other TFP designs for her are too spiky to fit into the show's canon. Hell not even Airachnid has so many spikes and patterns. I used her G1 design for this and tried to stick as closely to it as possible but still make it modern enough to fit into TFP. 
She's turning into a Lotus Elise/i> if anyone wants to know. 

If anyone wants to draw her my way then be my guest. I'd be happy to see more than just one infamous design for her in this fandom. Just because it is a 3d model doesn't mean it's canon so don't tell me I "drew her wrong" because that has gotten old very fast. I'm not taking this crap this time around.

As for her name. I want her to be different because the Elita in this fandom has fallen pray to the shippers so Elitea is supposed to be how the real Elita was back in the 80's. Give her a chance to be a real character and not a bland and characterless sex doll or hood accessory for Optimus.

Never done this before, so pardon:

I think overall the picture looks pretty good, the glows look really nice, especially around the eyes. The design is simple, but not so simple to where it's boring or uninteresting. You did succeed in not making her too spikey so kudos

In my opinion I think the shading and lighting looks a little weird. I've never been a big fan of softish shading so that's just a personal preference but besides that and back to the point of what really could be fixed, I've seen lighting on opposites sides of her body and it looks like you've used a white for said lighting and black for the shading which to me looks a little weird. She looks a little stiff and not very smooth (if that makes a lick of sense sorry I'm bad at explaining *rip*)

As I said, overall it looks okay, and I'm sorry if I seemed like I was pointing more at what could be fixed instead of what was good
What do you think?

Honestly, I have to say I prefer this design over the older one you had made ((although that one was still good, just not as much)) the glows are still very well done, and the shading/lighting has improved with a more apparent light source and not it appearing in random places. She also doesn't appear as still as she did in the original.

The biggest problem I have with this is her thighs are too long, which is probably just a nit-pick. Her tighs in this picture are about the same size as her legs which in actuality the tighs are usually a bit shorter than that.

Other than that as I stated above it has improved from the original design and art piece.

Uh? Isn't that name copyrighted by Hasbro or something? And it didn't really make me smile either. It feels like you claim ownership over everything that concerns Elita and that makes me hesitant to do anything with her. Even fan art and especially because Elitea isn't Elita.

I am not claiming anything and NO just for the name as a Transformer, I looked into it and everything I really love the character and she reminds me of myself and that is why I had my name changed too Elita One. I am not Claiming anything. I just enjoy the character and like to have fun. I am sorry if this offends you. But Changing my name really made my life a lot better. ( there are many reasons why I changed my name and I do not want too go into my entire child hood on that.)

All because of me? that is a little silly, I never did anything too you to hurt you I been nothing but nice too you.  I am sorry if see it that way but I assure you that is NOT my intention. I have far more important things too do then to claim anything HECK I am sure you see others who have posted memes that read Optimus Prime Approves and many others. That is simply what I am doing but out of my name too be funny I add in 'I' but I see Clearly that offends you. Wish I would of known that before hand I would not of done that too you. Sorry for upsetting you. that was NOT my intention.

I also have too add this in response too that last part in your comment. I AM not claiming too be, 'The Character Elita One'. I am human NOT a Made up Character, I love the character and the name. NOT to mention it is very close too my old name, 'BonITA (Elita)' like I said I changed my name for many reasons that I will not get into online.


Any-who I can see you clearly do not like me, So out of respect I will not bother you. This is my last replay, I wish you well. Have a great day.

God Bless.

The spiky one? It's because of the 3D model of it - many think it's canon.
I once saw a design that was pink and purple, that one looked super sweet too but I can't find it again.

I don't really understand why though. Just because it's 3D, it doesn't mean it's canon. :/

Aww, sounds a good combination (specially when I'm such a fanatic for pink and purple colors XD). I think I have seen one too, but it's been so long.

It looks professional and it's photoshopped into screenshots with a false logo. The newer members of the fandom probably won't see the difference between real and fake. I guess that's why so many think it is. 

Anyway I'm keeping my version. If I find that other design I was talking about I'm showing it to you! :'D

Hm, indeed. It can easily trick the newbies. I myself was impressed how well done the photoshop was, but I still could see there was something off with the images. Just needed to pay more attention lol

I so need to draw your design sometime soonLlama Emoji-39 (Eager) [V2] YassssLa la la la  The way they designed her caught my eye. She's got broken headfins. Now all these fans have to go about making her perfect inside and out and she seemingly has no flaws. The broken headfins look coolI am a dummy!

That'll never get old xD

And that's just the problem with her and the fans. If she's perfect then why bother? Sure being perfect is awesome but it gets boring very quickly and is even more annoying. You need a crack or two to be truly perfect after all. I know I don't have to tell that to you but I hope whoever else stumbles over this comment will learn something from it. 
The broken headfin looks better on your design though. The IDW design of her has those big chunky headfins and the broken edge on it is just too big.

Ah, I love this. :clap: Not just the design itself, but what you said in the description as well. With the whole sex doll/hood accessory thing, this is partly why I have my OC Vector shipped with her (and why Linz has Highsinger as her sister), to make her more of a character. Everyone just assumes that she HAS to be helpless, and that she HAS to be shipped with Optimus. :frustrated: It makes me want to yank my hair out! Frankly, I don't even think Elita and Optimus go together, and that it just ruins both of the characters. (And this is a small reason why we have Streamline shipped with Optimus, not the only reason she exists of course). :dummy: But yes, people have ruined this character so much, which is why I'm glad Linz has Highsinger. It helps. And, with this piece of art, you have helped cleanse my sanity =D after the morons went and got it dirty.

Hell yes! Did you know that Lineus, Elitea and Lumen are cousins? :D

I'd like to give her a role besides that girlfriend thing. Like her bio says she's compassionate but have we ever seen that? Action speak louder than words and about 80-90% of the fandom think she's just Prime's lover. Nothing more. 
I actually like it better when they are siblings instead of a couple. Both were remade by Trion after all so even adopted sibs are still sibs. What do you think? 

Let's make Elita great again! I'd actually really super duper like to see her with a male OC that balances her out. Not Lumen of course! They're family after all but the bubblegum pinkette deserves a companion who's there for her and stands beside her. Not a shield like Optimus.
