G1 sketches

Postby Josh » Tue Mar 20, 2007 12:25 am

hard to imagine one man could have so many projects and sideprojects eh?


i try to do as many sketches as i can as often as i can so as not to get too rusty [too much coloring and i almost forget how to draw xD]

but anyways, these are kind of my interpretations of the G1 toys. taking a few stylistic cues from the Studio Ox designs

im quite happy with prime, reasonably happy with megs, and on the fence with bumblebee. i need to play around with his proportions a bit more
but one thing i wanted to try to do was give off the essence of who these characters are as depicted in their original tech specs or what they're "job" is. Prime and Megs[whom i worked his silencer and scope into his bot mode] are military commanders, Bumblebee isnt the cute bumbling humanizer but hes back to his original Tactical Espionage self.

that kinda stuff

anyways, enjoy. they're a few weeks old but whatevah xP.

Like BB, I always love you Prime, he looks strong enough to be the leader.
Megs is badass, love the shoulders.
Even Bumblebee looks bad ass.

I would love to see your take on Hard Head, who has always seemed like a badass to me.

Bumblebee is sweet looking. I always preferred the toy head sculpt to the animated/comic model. It just looks so much better.

Pretty cool, Josh.

I find BBee actually the best of the bunch.
I really like his toy inspired mask.

Will we see a second version of Bumblebee, based on the animation model?
