    This is a WIP for the Bumblebee of my fan continuity: Legacy. The link to my first fan fiction in the series is in my signature. :wink:

    He will eventually be colored, and I will eventually draw his other weapon (stinger) and his vehicle mode! Tell me what you think! :D

    Well, first off, I like the plasma cannon; it just fits, for some reason.

    However, I can't tell what's going on with the upper legs, and for the most part, he's just a blend of Bayverse and TFP Bumblebee, without any real innovation.

    As for the artistic technique, you should keep practicing to improve it. However, even as it stands, it's better than anything I can do.

    I hope I wasn't too harsh.

    Kibble placement is rather simple, especially considering most of it is placed in the same place as both TF P and TFTM BB. Also, huge ass head. Not your best work. Still, I can only (false)hope to draw this well.

    Thanks! The plasma cannon I thought would be the best idea for a gun for him!

    Yeah, the upper legs will probably look better once I color him, but thanks for letting me know! Actually, that's the look I was going for; Prime and Movieverse fusion. The other characters in my continuity (Ironhide and Jazz especially) look very different from any other version, and I plan to do Ironhide when I'm done with Bee here. :wink: 

    I'm actually really surprised you didn't comment on the eyes; they look pretty wacky! :lol  They'll look better when colored too. :wink: 

    Don't worry, you weren't too harsh; I actually enjoy criticism like yours, it helps me to improve in my artwork! :) 

    Yeah, like I just said, the similarity to Prime and Movieverse Bee was intentional. :wink:  :lol  I guess the head is a bit too big! Can you tell that was the first part I drew? :lol  I'll probably erase and fix that part of him later today. What do you mean, "(false)hope"?

    Can't wait. And I mean though I may hope to draw that good, I'll never be able to.

    It's better in that I have a better idea of what's going on. I suggest you keep practicing, possibly by tracking down some how-to-draw-Transformers books revolving around TFs and learning what techniques they use to improve even further. I'm not meaning that as a slam against you; I just want to help you improve.

    I'm trying to track down those books, I already have my eyes on the Prime book... Thanks for the criticism; I really do like it! :wink:

    Here's a data card for Bumblebee, since I already finished Ironhide's! :D 
    [​IMG]
    Just like Ironhide, Bumblebee will be getting a new piece of artwork in the near future! I've redesigned my Legacy aesthetic, but first for the new aesthetic will be Soundwave, who turns into a communications Hummer! :D
