Hello everyone.

Here is a fembot designed by me. I like to design transforming robots, it's not easy, but interesting.
Can a newbie like me ask for some critique?

A tetrachanger, very nice!
I like how much went into the transformations.
Beast, bot, car and ?? boat? jet?

and what is the beast mode?

I really love the bot and car modes, though.

The beast mode is someone from feline family. A lion, or a tiger? I really don't see much difference between them in tf universe :)
The fourth mode is some kind of jet / spacecraft.
Here are 2 more renders. Are they clearer?
And thanks for your reply.

Aha, I see the titles in the picture corners now. :)

The beatmode is good, I like the guntail. Heads make or break beast modes anyway, but it's hard to get a read on the tiger head. Sixshot's animal head was the key to the coolness of that mode, whatever it was.

The jet mode definitely reads as more of a spacecraft. I doubt it would be capable of flight without anti-grav, but it could have lifting body properties for atmostpheric landings.

What were your inspirations in this design?

Nothing special.
I like designing 3D robots with "geometry-right" transforming. But once I thought: "I am bored of my simple cubic designs. I must try something more complex."
So I just tested my skills in designing something "smoothed", and here is the result.

Motto: "If I win again I'm still the champion. If you win HAH! that's just impossible.

Weapon: tea cup."
I love it - if it was made, I'd want one!

As for critique, I have two suggestions:
1) some more variation of colour to make the robot/animal mode a little easier to understand
2) post a link to your art here.

I like her name. Valkyrie is usually the name I use... I also like the blue colour.
