    Alright, so I was bored again in class, so I started drawing. Again. So here they are, and thankfully they are in a sketchbook this time! So no annoying lines!

    First off is Bumblebee. Yes, he's saving a cat from a tree (tho the cat looks pretty comfortable!). There was going to be a little old lady in it as well, but I just can't draw old people for some reason.

    This all started out as me practicing Mecha hands, then developed into an arm. Then I thought to myself "I really want to take a stab at drawing Bumblebee!", so here he is. I noticed that the rest of the page was very empty, so I just started doodling, and the tree and cat were born.

    Next off is Devastator, and I'll have to say my best drawing yet! I was experimenting with linear perspective, but didn't follow the perspective as well as I had wished. Again, there was too much empty space, so I filled it with a city. Sorta turned out to be like a Godzilla/King Kong combination!

    So please, tell me how you like it, and give constructive criticism if you can. Thanks!

    Big roffels at Devastator! :lolol 


    BB is cute, too!

    I might suggest next time you just use straight, deffinative lines, instead of these multi-layered line typical of a sketch. (It looks fine regardless, I just don't know why people do it)

    The reason that I do it is because I don't make a line with only one line, but thousands of little lines, steadily going up to make an entire line. It's just the way I draw. Anyway, these are (hopefully) not the final sketches, so you're right. They are sketches. When the Inked Versions are finished, I'll take these down, and post those instead. Or I'll have both, dunno yet. Probably the inked ones will be for those who want to CG them, cause I don't know how.

    BTW, to all who have a Deviant Art account, if you like either of these drawings, could you as a favor go to the link in my Sig to my Deviant Art page and favorite the art.

    Awesome doodles! :thumb 

    I love the train of thought that led to your sketch of Bumblebee, way to go with the flow there.

    And :lol  @ Devastator. He's got that look on his face that says "Why are you humies attacking me? I'm just walking here minding my own business."

    Lol, I can see that. What I was going for was a surprised look of "You're actually foolish enough to attack me?"

    very nice. The bumblebee one is very cute,

    I love the devastator one. I always loved how it seemed that the size of his
    individual pieces always seemed to grow after he formed.

    Yeah. When I looked at it afterwards, I saw the size ratio, and I thought "Crap, he's out of proportion!". But then again, when talking about physics, Transformers is not a good example.

    If anyone wants me to do a drawing for them, just ask me, and I'll do it for free. BTW, I can sort of only do existing characters.

    OK, I lied to you. Took me less than two weeks. I just couldn't make a more complicated shading style look right on this one, so I ended up going the simple "old cartoon style" route. Hopefully that works for you.

    EDIT: Oops. Just noticed I forgot the Autobot symbol. I'll get that fixed when I can.
    EDIT2: Fixed.
