I have sentimental reasons for liking Lightspeed and the Technobots have always been aesthetically some of my favorite G1 Transformers. And this is such a huge improvement over the original design that I already loved so much.

Fantastic design, and this particular lineart and colours together produce a combo-look I like a LOT!
What technique was used for colouring?
Tf-SeedsOfDeception's avatar
Ops, I don't know. :)
We'll have to ask Matt for this.

Don't worry, the Multiple Bodyframes tech explains the different silouhettes.

In other words, this is a non-profit fanproject: there's the need to find a balance between consistency issues and artistic urges.
We can provide model sheets, but sometimes the artists want a degree of freedom: after all, they are working for free.
In this case, :iconlanveril: is working on a story featuring 10 more characters, but only Lightspeeds gets the alternate treatment. A sort of "personal choice".

Were we an official project, we'd ask the artists to stick to certain models (and we would have a full library of Cybertronian model sheets by Don Figueroa!), but in truth even IDW doesn't do that.

Aaah, so that's what the Multiple Bodyframes tech is for. Sneaky.

It was designed for Springer, but it actually came useful for other "tormented" characters like Blitzwing. =D
