so here is the alt mode for springarm as promised
with a lot of the new bots i've been drawing these days, i start with creating the altmode first, then creating the robot next. well unless i have a really clear view of what i want the robto mode to look like first.
usually i'll have a really loose drawing of the robot, so i can get the basic shape of what i think it should look like. then i'll draw the alt mode and then go back and modify to robot mode for the character.
with this design i needed to have springarm able to be a bike on his own, but also have optimus/orion able to rode it.
so here is the regular alt mode, and the modified one for optimus/orion to ride
with the bike design i really wanted to have the open wheel design. i really like that, and a part of me wanted to turn a tron bike into a transformer so this is what i came up with.
most of the body fo the bike is a outer shell that compacts and the body is inner areas. basically when he transforms, he drops down from the middle of the bike and the wheels fold up and rotate into there assigned places
oh, again, this design was made when the character was named swingarm. it was later changed to springarm if anyone is wondering
