I started by looking at the vehicle form and imagining which parts would be certain body parts in the robot form. After this, I try to create limbs in the robot form that look like the vehicle parts...
Hope this helps.

If you're just starting out, I would recommend that you build a humanoid form using exo-force joints. Then, experiment with contorting it, and find a vehicle that would suit the figure. From there, its pretty easy to build off of the frame. [Cars are generally easiest when you're using a basic frame.]

I have to agree. simply build upon a basic skeleton made of either bionicle or exo-force that has been manipulated into some shape.

Most of my Lego Transformers have LDD instructions. You can check out some of my techniques there. If you have questions, just ask. Also, Chris Roach has a lot of videos of his Transformers on youtube under the name "Boyzwiththemosttoyz"

I love seeing the comments above, observing their orderly planned out techniques, and then looking back to my slapdash ways.
Honestly, I just go with it. The model kindof builds itself for me. I put random clumps of symetrical joints together until I create faintly recognizable form of either a robot or vehicle. After that I contort the mass into something that is remeniscent of the opposite form and work my way from there.

I am new to the group, and indeed to MOCpages, but I have some advice:

Having no ball joints or ratchet joints, I would recommend using technic, and using lots of worm gears to govern shoulder, hip and spinal transformation hinges.

For knees and elbows I use axles that slide through cross-pin holes like pistons, providing high friction. Modern technic contains 5.5 measure-long dark grey axles with a flange at 1 measure which are very good for this purpose.

Non mobile parts that need to move during the transformation I lock using pegs and rivets.

And, as a general rule, build a basic robot that becomes a sturdy chassis before adorning with the head, the body panels, and weapons.
