    One of the guys in my local sightings page mentioned getting some repro label pin-up art for the WWII alt modes that have been coming out and I though that was too good to pass up. So the first in the series is Arcee for HFTD Highbrow. More to come (better scans too)

    EDIT: Added inked version.

    EDIT: Added rough color
    EDIT: Shading added
    EDIT: Added sign and placement test on Highbrow

    I love the pose, you captured the Golden Era pinup style really well. I especially dig the leg and hip position. ^_^

    Thank you :D  That's some pretty high praise considering the source (sorry to gush, big fan :D ) I will be cleaning her up for color then starting on her RTS Lugnut, TFA Lugnut and a special TFA Atomic Lugnut counterparts after that.

    No problemo. I'm just jealous that I didn't come up with the idea first. XD

    Seriously though, I'm really digging this. You might want to look into getting these printed as stickers down the road if you haven't already. I don't have HTFD Highbrow but I'd totally buy one just to use this decal on him. ^_^

    Nice. But i think pose could be better. Just goggling nosecone art n u can see the poses are quite standard/limited with some variation. The limbs position individually work but something about it overall seems counter intuitive as far as convention goes. Try sketching a few more poses and youll find improvement instinctively.

    I think the pose is pretty snazzy as it is. Sure, it's not exactly like classic bomber decals but they used the same templates back then on most of the planes to save time.

    As far as this pose goes, it captures the old Bettie Page sass without carbon-copying an old pinup. I think the way the limb poses counteract each other adds to the attitude of the piece, and the various twists and turns Arcee's body is making adds a sense of motion to the art. It works with the old "theorem of curves" idea when drawing pinup ladies. If you pop the hips out one way, you move the shoulders down to match them and so on.

    This is SUCH a great idea bro! We should talk about some nose and tail art for a couple of particular F-15's that could use some spice.

    Nose art on alt modes is like tattoos for Transformers. That somehow makes it even cooler. :D
