DreadWind 'n' Darkwing sketch by Blitz-Wing DreadWind 'n' Darkwing sketch by Blitz-Wing
this actually started life as a pic of another decepticon team but it kinda went pear shaped. I was going to scrap it and start over but I looked at these 2 and I wanted to save as much as I could since their were some ideas I really liked.

As luck would have it face wise it didn't take much to change them to the DreadWing team so it was really more of a case of changing some details here and their. Also given the transformation everything was kinda in the same place.

bonus points for any one who can guess who they were originally going to be. As a clue their are some parts that are directly off the original characters toy's

I "stopped" after G1 and G2 American releases. So they're both new to me.

Awesome art.

xD Aw, it's a shame it didn't work out as the original two. If what the piece turned into is any indication, your versions of Talon and Falcon (?) would have been amazing. (I'm just gonna go with that and hope I'm right. |D)

Anyway, these guys look wicked. It makes me wish there were some toys built a little more like them; not so top-heavy that they look odd and they actually seem like they would be able to walk! 8D

|D Love this to pieces, they look bad ass. And you certainly can't go wrong with THAT color scheme.

These pair are originally from the Japanese TF God Master series where both jet forms can merge into 1 bigger jet called Darkwings. They are originally named Buster and Hydra before the Americans insist on names Darkwing and Dreadwing.

Seriously, anything foreign has to be dubbed, censored and rewritten just to fit the all-american tastes. Meanwhile, guns are still easily available on american streets when violence and death aren't allowed on american medias. Seriously, how long can americans keep up with their hypocrisy?

Just a little nitpicking: the small white bar to the left looks like you did not cover the entire background layer :)
