Flashpoint: Transformers IDW OC by ladyofdragons Flashpoint: Transformers IDW OC by ladyofdragons
This is actually an old pic from April 2013 that I never uploaded here because I'm still not 100% happy with this design.

She's part of an ongoing project going back almost three years to create TF femmes that don't conform to the classic slim, supermodel type shape. She's a meleeist so I wanted her to be sturdy but still with a very curvy aesthetic. The legs still feel too industrial and without enough kibble, so I'm in the process of reworking them. The arms too, will likely gain some kibble. Her altmode is styled after an early 70s HEMI 'Cuda, which I'll upload at some point here.

Flashpoint also came from a time when Arcee was the only known Cybertronian female in IDW's universe. I wanted to take Arcee's backstory, in which she's effectively transgendered against her will, and do it from a consensual angle. Flashpoint is older than average, close to Ratchet's age, and originally from Nyon. If people are really interested in her history (of which there's a ten-plus page document for) I can post that.

Edit: Since I had a request, here's her biography.

Flashpoint Sarah Heinemann, all else belongs to Hasbro.

Love the style here. I also think you properly hit the mark of keeping it clearly 'female' WITHOUT hitting the cliche design shape. So I say you accomplished your goal marvelously!

Backstory sounds awesome, I'd be down for it!

Thanks so much! I had a lot of fun doing the design, (which is clearly inspired heavily by Milne's robot aesthetic). I'm really glad I hit the mark though, it's way more challenging than I thought it'd be. 

I'll have to post her backstory somewhere...though maybe my Ao3 account would be more fitting than here on DA. Hmm...
