    IDW #105: Domestic Transformer

    Topic: Domestic Transformer

    Background: I suppose most of you have watched the 2nd Transformer movie by now, so I thought it might be fun to have a topic inspired by it.

    However, instead of going for the enormous bots that break down whole Pyramids, we're keeping it small. One of the first scenes in the movie is where a bunch of household appliances come to live and break down the kitchen, and the topic this time is to design similar transformers.

    Pick a household appliance of your choice (probably best to just look around your own house for the washing machine, coffee machine or fridge -maybe take a few pictures) and transform it into a ..well, transformer. You can also pick any domestic appliance you find on the internet for inspiration.

    Both the original version and the transformer bot version need to be visible in your final entry! Also, you may opt not to stick with the style from the recent movies if you want, I know that there's people out there that didn't like it.

    Brief:
    1. Topic: Domestic Transformer!
    2. Pick a household appliance of your choice and turn it into a transformer - both versions need to be in your final entry!
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, July 26

    Digital Blacksmith: I'm surprised to see you back in here to be honest, but I'll allow it for now I think. Don't make me regret that decision.

    Hm...does this have to be a humanoid robot when transformed? Arms, legs, head, whatever? I like this idea but really hate the Transformers designs, plus didn't actually see the latest movie.

    Crises: Yeh humanoid is the idea, since they are Transformers after all. It's not necessary to stick to the design style from the last 2 movies, nor is it necessary to actualy have seen those.

    Ahhh, damnit. I had some ideas but they wouldn't be humanoid at all. Thanks for the clarification.

    This is my first IDW, seems like a great opportunity to practice a type of work I haven't done much of before! Here are a couple sketch ideas for a circular-saw transformer. I'm not really done with the idea phase, but I thought it'd be nice to get some work up and see if there's any feedback. I'm trying to re-create a little bit of the flavor from the original animated film. Not sure if the 'bot is humanoid enough, or if the transformation is quite dramatic enough (the arms just kind of split apart and pull away.) Still thinking of different things I can do with the saw blade. Anyway, here goes!

    WaffleKoan- Nice sketches, I think you could push it a lot more for the transformation, if you notice in the movies some of the transformations make no f'n sense as far as where all the extra components came from. Just as long as we can see the major elements of the original appliance.

    Pic of my inspiration, I'm definitely not going with the "Transformer" style bots. Hopefully this can kind of fall under appliances
