so at first i wasn't going to post this up until i had it inked, but since i haven't posted anything is a while i figured it would be nice to show off what i was working on.
you know how you have days where you just can't seem to get into the groove, well i've had that for the last 2 weeks. i just couldn't seem to get anything i wanted down on paper. so i decided to do something just for fun. i know there a lots of people who have been complaining about Don's new look for the upcoming transformers ongoing series, personally i don't mind the way they look. i said to myself that i wanted to try a take on them, so i did. i'm pretty sure that i've drawn parts of them wrong since i don't have there full designs at hand (had to go off what art was out on the net thus far) but there pretty close.
well this is what i have thus far. there will be a few tweaks that i'll do when inking it, especially with the background, but over all i'm happy with it. i know in a few months i will most likely hate it, but thats the way it is with everything i draw.
enjoy ;p

Also, good to see you've given the bots REAL faces (albeit with some Bay styling garnish) instead of those god-awful things Don calls heads
markerguru's avatar
i basically wanted to draw everything that Don had come up with, but with my take on the faces. i made them a bit closer to G1 style.

Good idea. That's why the TF comics at IDW are so interesting - every artist has a completely different style that looks cool and fir certain stories perfectly.

Can you reveal if you're working on anything for IDW as of now?
markerguru's avatar
nope. after the TOTF Arcee i have no further work with idw at this point.

I love what IDW are doing with Hot Rod. Looks like he's set to become Rodimus in ongoing #2. He so badaft! U kno, TF wiki has a really ironic caption of Roddy staring into the Magnificence. It says, "Oh magical 8 ball, will I ever be a Prime in this continuity?"

BTW love your movie TF work, Alex. CANNOT BELIEVE IDW has replaced you with Carlos Magno!
markerguru's avatar
well thats Andy's call.
minimus-minor's avatar
Yeah. Ah well, Carlos does it well (tho there's still no substitute for you man)

I like this. These look like G1 TransFormers evolved. Don's just dive way too far into the movie aesthetic, and the colors/inks we've seen so far haven't done the images any favors.

This only gets more awesome every time I look at it.

..damnit, I'm stuck looking at it. Again. >8/
