Movie Bumblebee Standard Mode by timshinn73 Movie Bumblebee Standard Mode by timshinn73
OK, here's the first of 2 Bumblebee heads. I tried to get some of the familiar hex-shape from the G1 cartoon BB in the face while also trying to give as many options for animating the eyes and mouth as possible.

This time I decided to start with 2 designs in mind. I'm not totally into the whole "battle mode" thing yet, but I haven't seen the official finished product, so we'll see.

I'm curious to hear what you think. I value any thoughts you'd like to share. Thanks for taking a look!

Photoshop. About 4 hrs

EDIT:
Lengthened the face. Trimmed some baby fat.

To be honest, that's awful.
Not because of skill, that you have, but the lips, sace itself and shapes, the general designs is just god-awful. Looks much worse than the actual movie designs.
Same applies to most of your re-designs, Soundwave beign as an exeption, but not much.

:ninja: If the movie was following G1 design-wise more than it is, I'd say this is pretty damn accurate to the original while fitting with the realism side of things. If I had to guess I'd say you've never seen the original cartoon or are not really a fan to begin with in which case keep your opinions on the matter to yourself.

I've seen G1, and honestly, it was a terrible mesh. Granted, few good episodes here and there, but the amount of mass shifting and nonsense actions and the amount of plot devices is incredible. All these made G1 less and less enjoyable. As a kid the pacing doesn't bother, kids love fast paced action, but as an older person, it really gets on my nerve.
If the movie would follow G1 designs, which it does ot thank god, they would not look like that, simply because they would look like G1 and not TF movie designs.
