Put on your game face…

Transformers came out on DVD this week, and I’m glad to say that after repeat viewings I feel the same about it as when it first came out. I got an itch to draw the movie version of Bumblebee, which you can compare to my depiction of the cartoon version from a few months ago.

Trying something new here… sort of. Combining two of my regular techniques, this one is 100% Photoshop, sketched in pixelly fashion with the pencil tool but colored in the semi-painterly fashion that I use every now and then. It’s pretty fast and dirty, all kinds of B.S. imaginary light-sources going on here. Still, I’m fairly happy with it. Bumblebee is drawn, by the way, with his battle mode face-plate (which I think is much cooler than his weird gas tank mouth). I believe it was Vinny who called it Bumblebee’s “game face.”

  1. Nice!!! I’m not too into the pencil-pixel look though (GO BRUSH!)

    I’m also with you on the movie… I LOVED it!

  2. I like it!.. but I dont like the text at the top… prefer to see some tone thrown in if you didnt want the eye to run off the top of the page.

  3. lordshen: thanks!

    ric: thanks man! i agree, i don’t think the pixel thing was the ideal solution here, though for a spur of the moment experiment, it worked out ok.

    illgnosis: thanks dude! i agree with you about the text… it just didn’t quite work out the way i wanted it to. alas, live and learn.
