SoD Swindle - War Within model sheet
THE TRANSFORMERS: SEEDS OF DECEPTION

WAR WITHIN SWINDLE (COMBATICONS)

PRE-COMBINER CYBERTRONIAN MODES


Art by Zerob :iconborezet:

Text and concept by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck:


PROFILE

NAME: SWINDLE
FUNCTION: SOCIOLOGIST & MUNITIONS EXPERT
Motto: "Make deals, not war".

PERSONALITY TRAITS
An easy-going, good-natured personality that hides an opportunist without peer.
Solely concerned with himself.
He could build a whole business empire out of his interests and skills, but he prefers the constant thrill and danger of an arm dealer's life.

FACTS
Thrives on wheeling and dealing. Seemingly is capable of procuring anything to fulfill the design and equipment needs of his armaments work.
Interested in the study of mass psychology and alien societies, as long as there's a profit to be made.
Skilled designer and builder of all sorts of weapons.
His "bank of favors and deals" is what keeps him protected in any social environment, from Ratbat's exclusive upper class to the Scraplet Slums of Kaon.

WEAPONS
A scatter blaster that shoots bursts of explosive buckshot-type pellets over a wide area.
A gyro-gun that disturbs the balance centers of cybernetic beings.

WEAKNESSES
Has a soft spot for wheeled alt modes, which make him prone to overturning.
His "bank of favors and deals" is also a potential threat for his activities. One weak link, one fatal spill, and all manners of government officers would land on the trail of his illegal business.


NOTES

Are the Combaticons a gestalt in this continuity as well? Check out the model sheet for War Within Bruticus, and see the prophecy of the Gestalt Battle in Wrath of the Ages #4.

See more War Within Combaticons:
- Onslaught
- Blast Off
- Brawl
- Vortex.

Continuity-wise speaking, the current version of Swindle will need to be reformatted if he is to become part of the Combaticons first, and the Bruticus Gestalt laster.
Here is the final design of WW Combiner Swindle.

Briefly featured in The Age of Wrath #4, the Decepticon Gestalt known as Bruticus was never seen in the official War Within books, but Don Figueroa did design the Cybertronian versions of all the Combaticons.

Here is :iconjp-v:'s take on the character!

Junkion Shaman Of The East study for AF
THE TRANSFORMERS: SEEDS OF DECEPTION
CHARACTER STUDY FOR "ARISE, FEMALES!"

JUNKION MOTORFACE


Art by Milad Taleghani :iconmulti-comics:


NOTES

When the fleet of Lunars (the Natives of Moon Beta) escaped their homeworld, running from the merciless colonization forces of Nova Prime and Jhiaxus, there was just one Junkion Shaman on board.
But right before crashing in the Junklands, the wrecks of their ships crossed something in the atmosphere. They didn't know what it was: a current of primordial energy erupting from the very core of Cybertron, maybe, or a stream of quantum particles generating from the boiling quark-gel of the approaching Moon Epsilon.
Whatever the cause, the Shaman took the full brunt of this wave, and the few witnesses saw his body go crazy. In a matter of seconds, where there was one before, now there were two-- two Shamans, sharing one twisted body with eight arms, an impossibly large head, four eyes, two mouth-- both screaming for release.
As the wreck of the ship burned in the free fall, the Shamans disappeared in the fire.

When the survivors of the crash gathered, the Shamans appeared. Now two distinct beings, they had clashing opinions about how to survive the Junklands.
Without ever addressing the mystery of their birth (or was it a spawning?), the Shaman left, in a mission to locate the source of the energy wave that split him into two beings. The Shaman believed that this force came from the living spirit of Cybertron-- Primus, and that he could be found somewhere within the Junklands.
As he headed west, he left his twin with the task of taking care of the other Junkions, not as a leader, but as a moral compass, helping them face the many challenges that their new home would bring.
And that the Shaman of the East did, taking his name from the fact that his twin went West: he was the one who shaped the Junkions into the merciless, but just tribe that they are today.

The Junkions are a secret species living on Cybertron since the events of Paradise Lost.

The Arise, Females! project is meant to expand the SoD webcomic that provides a prequel story to Spotlight: Arcee by Simon Furman and Alex Milne.

As chronicled in Short Story: The Beauty And The Beast, the Junkions helped Arcee get back on her feet (literally), after she was painfully discarded by her creator Jhiaxus.

Arise, Females! is a sequel to the collection of tales related to the Nova Prime age: see all of them (plus the amazing cover) in Special Story: The Evil That Mechs Do.

Hi, for a few days ago I was holding an short presentation of how it is to work as an artist and how people misunderstand the work behind it.
These people I talked to are working in the state, they help people to get an job or start their own business or helping companies with their business ideas and plans.

I actually took some of the comic pages I colored for you to show how many people is behind an comic book, and even if it's an non profit we still take it serious.

The people there where impressed by the work and got their eyes opened for how this job as an artist works, line artist, color artist and writers and everything between.

I really wanted to let you know this. they really liked it.
