Hey guys, it's been a long while since I've illustrated something TF related that I've felt like showing. One of my favorite things to do is sketch, and over the last 4-5 years specifically, I've really enjoyed sketching Alts and BTs. Ever since I've gotten back into TFs, I've really enjoyed illustrating TFs, but have rarely moved on to a final piece. Greg Gaub has really been the only person successfully get me to the final stage. Much of my lack of output has been due to my shift of focus to customs and kitbashes. I've been illustrating most of my life, so I hope you don't blame me I really am not intentionally trying to mislead here either, because this is merely a sketch as well. I've recently been going straight through the Marvel US run of comics via the IDW trade paperbacks. One of the few drawbacks to these great collections is that they were forced to take out Circuit Breaker due to copyright concerns (and I'm curious as to how the later run of the comic will be because Circuit Breaker and other characters have a pretty significant portion near the end of the run). That being said, I have to admit that I've never enjoyed the character design to Circuit Breaker. I thought that the character was interesting enough, but she's a bit too superheroish to me (and I know that's mainly because she was created as a result of Marvel Comics ultimately). I've always associated Transformers more with anime and manga, despite the influence and run of the US Marvel Comic. One of the few things that I enjoy on a level as similar as Transformers is Ghost in the Shell. I've always loved anime and manga, and Masamune Shirow's work (Akira and Dominion: Tank Policee were some of the first anime works I saw). I really enjoy the cyberpunkish manga and anime as well I was at work Friday night/Saturday morning and decided to sketch out this design. It hadn't been long after I had scanned through some threads here in Radicons Fan Art, and one such thread was . My vision is that I want the circuits and things to be a bit more subtle and designed more akin to a technology that would be use for cybernetics and androids from the GitS mythos, especially as a result of the mecha nature of recent renditions of Transformers. I revisioned that if Josie Beller had been in such an accident as portrayed in the comic, that she would end up looking less like a naked chick with metal strands all over her. I'm assuming that given my affinity for GitS/I], I'd take the opportunity (were I handed the reigns) to just do more with the whole concept. Anyways, while just a sketch, that's what's behind it. I just scanned in my sketch. I'd like to color it at some point, just to illustrate how I'd redo some of the circuit details in contrast to the Marvel Comics design. I'm thinking that much of the "armor" would end up a bit more plastic looking like an android with some metal armor and such (for combat) as well. Anyways, I hope you like my work. It's certainly not without its flaws on a proportion basis and such. I essentially just wanted to start exercising the drawing muscles that have gotten just a tad rusty Head redesign, detail Design, full view If anyone wants to use these to color, feel free to.
