True Colours TFA Blackarachnia by Gizmo-Tracer True Colours TFA Blackarachnia by Gizmo-Tracer
Betrayed by the ambitious Optimus Prime in his bid to rule Cybertron, Elita 1 was rescued by the giant spiders of Archa Seven, who lent her their strength. Transformed in body and mind, the newly named Blackarachnia swore to protect all life throughout the universe. Recruited into Megatron’s Decepticon resistance by his loyal lieutenant Starscream, she eventually found herself leading a group of stalwart technorganics in defending a primitive world from the ruthless Autobot mercenaries known as the Maximals.

-----

So, hey, remember when I said I was finished with Beast Wars Animated customs? Apparently I'm a big liar pants. This is just a straight repaint, but let's face it, it's something we all wanted to see!

I experimented a bit with making her spider legs orange like her original Beast Wars character model, but ultimately decided to keep it simple. I could have justified the new colour scheme as an upgrade or another clone, but I'm a sucker for alternate reality stuff. Shattered Glass Animated? Sign me up.

Presumably she works with psychologist-turned-conscientious objector Waspinator, who's been constructed from an unbreakable alloy. Nightscream is an unnervingly chipper energon vampire, Rattrap is a brutal pugilist with a twisted sense of fair play and Rhinox is... uh... Tankor, I guess.

Love it. Wish Hasbro would make this, 'cause as it is, all that BW BA's first form has as a toy is Tarantulas recolored in a scheme that looks nothing like BA's colors (and wouldn't look like BA if the colors were right.)

Oooo, pretty colors. I like the silver accents on the shoulders. They contrast nicely with the rest of the gold.

Freaking awesome!

I really love how you tied in her old colors into this new personallity you have here.

But one question, if she was turned from evil to good in the normal reality...does that mean she might go from good to evil in a Shattered Glass like one?

Nah; remember, this is the mirror double of the Animated version of the characters. TFA Blackarachnia was a villainess with some reservations (and a lot of body image issues). This version, well... even when she's good, she's still bad.

Cool, a Shattered Glass version. Any chance of doing others in either regular or your Beast Wars animated version? Great work as usual.

*shrugs* Presumably a rebel who defected to the Autobots when he realized the Decepticons weren't interested in grabbing power for themselves?

Cool repaint. I like how you kinda make ode to the original Blackarachnia by bring more of the gold in her design.

Awesome! Reminds me of my True Blackarachnia design! And it's fine that you didn't color the legs orange, if you did, that would've ruined the color scheme for her robot arms and legs kinda.
