IDW Dark Cybertron Arcee Design

here is the design i came up with based off of a concept from hasbro. 
not sure if this is what the new Arcee toy will look like.  the design i was given was not a toy image nor was it an image that looked like it could transform.  it was just a concept which i think hasbro wanted to base the new toy off of.  so i had to work with that and come up with something that i feel keep the look they want to use and work withing the world the comic is set in :)
the only thing i did a bit differently in the comic was i made her legs a bit longer.  i ran out of paper on this image and i did want her legs a bit longer.
with the head i did put elements from the original IDW Arcee in it so i could tie the new design with comic look :)
so i'm not sure what the toy will look like, but this was fun getting to draw a new version  of Arcee :)

I love how strong and capable she looks without losing the original essence of Arcee.

I love this new design! Thank goodness she's not the stereotypical supermodel figure female TFs have been in the past. (Except Strika, yay) I love variety of frame type even in femmes, it feels more realistic and relatable, plus she looks powerful while still being feminine. 

And can I say it's refreshing to know even you suffer from canvas size dictating your proportions? I have to cheat this in Photoshop because I always get it wrong the first time. /shakes fist

Oh this is so cool! She looks feminine without going for any easy visual shortcuts in that respect, and this look also really suits her temperament, I think. Ahh I just love your robot designs :)

Neat design for sure especially the amount of details you put in.

Looks like a buffed up version of her G1 look

It's reminiscent of Samus's power armor (at least to me). Feminine yet powerful. Whether that aspect comes from your input or the concept, you've done a nice job!

I really like the redesign.  She has a bit of a "butch" look, while still looking very feminine.  Great balance! I got to see the same concept art as well, so its really interesting to see your take on it. :)

I'm really digging her overall figure--especially those legs.  Nice and strong legs.

I really love it! I was very happy to see her new design in Dark Cybertron :3 

Will you be posting a sketch design of how you draw Nautica, Chromia, and Windblade as well?

i didn't design those characters.  most of them were designed by James Raiz and i based their looks off those designs.  then he changed some of them when he drew the comic but i kept them the same as the original designs.

Ahhh, cool! I was wondering where Nautica's visor went! xD

Either way, awesome job, man :D

I can picture it:
Spotlight: Nautica: Nautica in "The Mystery of the Missing Visor"!
