TFW 2005 TF Contest: Prowl by JavierReyes TFW 2005 TF Contest: Prowl by JavierReyes
So this is my entry for the TFW2005 Boards Design a Transformer Contest with Josh Nizzi.

Here's my version of Prowl. He's based on an 2010 Ford Mustang. Yes I know, "an autobot with an ford alt mode?!?!?" but I said what the hell. I wanted Prowl to have a hard-ass kinda look but a really sophisticated slightly clean robot mode.

The tiger looking face is on purpose btw. Seeing how many of the Transformers faces from the film are inspired by animals, I decided to play on that. I think the tiger has a very noble look to it.

For the design of him I went with a speed painting technique which had surprising results. I may be doing more of these in the future.

See the progress of my entry here: [link]

Hope you guys dig!

This is exactly how Prowl would look in the live-action "Transformers" films.

Hi J,

I'm gonna talk about this here since I clean forgot to mention it in my last email to you! How self-centred am I?? Tee hee!!

Awesome job on Prowl man. It would have been cool if you could of digi-bashed the alt mode to fit in with the paint job you used and maybe even to add some proper police decals. It's only a minor point since the bot itself is the main thing.

I love, love, love what you did with his face. It never clicked with me how some of the autobot faces are based on animals and as soon as you said it I was like 'Well duh Gareth!'.

I wish you all the best in the competition man. The level of artwork used in some of the entries is surprisingly scary and brilliant! Some of it is practically professional, you know?

I still think that the concept you have delivered is one of the strongest with the artwork to back it up so hopefully you'll win this thing.

By the way I love your style of painting here. Very 'concepty' if you know what I mean? Looks like you're making a go of the concept art thing that you mentioned.

Thanks a lot G! Thank you so much for the in depth comment.

I tried digibashing the car to look like a cop car but it didn't look like I wanted, but then again I got lazy. :( I think that minor point would have pushed the entry a bit.

You never know. Still hopefully it was a worthwhile project for you. It certainly gave me a few ideas that's for sure.

I see that the votes are currently taking place for those that made top ten.

Have you voted?

I really like your idea about the contrast between his alt mode and robot mode. Being prim and clean would be so characteristic of him. The color scheme is very suiting, the gold adds a sort of regality to him. Being white also adds to his animalitsic features, I'm strongly reminded of a white tiger when I look at his helm.

The animal look works Soooo well, being prowl, a tiger is a great choice for base.

looks awesome all around! We DO need a prowl.

Another Mustang Police Car, only this one is good.

I can totally see it happen.

Sam: "BARRICADE is back!" -takes cover-

Prowl transforms, "Tit tot and a load of rubbish, I'm Prowl, your friendly rule abiding Autobot."

IDK why I made him talk like that.
