EDIT : Bumblebee got an upgrade in Revenge of the Fallen so I thought I'd give him an upgrade here too! I've changed his chest to look more like the 2009 Camaro and now matches the Bumblebee pic I did for the Auto Assembly convention magazine / merchandise. I hope I've improved it!! :)

This year is the 3rd time I've guested at Auto Assembly, Europe's largest Transformers convention, which took place at the beginning of August (08). I took this opportunity to produce some new artwork for the con and this is the 3rd of 3 pieces.

A lot of the strips I've worked on lately have paired up Mikaela & Bumblebee (sorry Sam Witwicky, Simon Furman has been neglecting you in the UK comics!) so I wanted to create a piece featuring the two.

I usually colour TF UK strips in an anime-esque cel style and my intention with this pic was 'what if the TF Movie designs were in an anime?' and this is what I came up with!

I had to draw Bumblebee in his battle mask because I noticed that when BB used it in the movie 2 little 'horns' appeared on top of his head like his original Gen1 design! I thought that was a nice touch from the movie TF designers.

Hope you guys like the pic!

Really, really nice Nod I certainly would have liked to see a bit more interaction between Mikaela and Bumblebee.

This pic about Bumblebee with his second best human friend (for two first films) is so cool.
