    Nowadays, 90% of my drawing time happens during some really crappy, boring meetings that I have to attend at work.

    [​IMG]

    This started out as a sketch of a battered, heavily-damaged Transformer. For some reason, I tend to start drawing torsos or bodies first a lot of times. Over the course of the meeting, it evolved into Bumblebee. And then, I started adding to it. eventually putting Arcee into it, and such. Some of you might remember a pic I posted along time ago of BB repairing Arcee - I guess this is the "sequel" to that piece.

    I'm planning on cleaning this up a bit and eventually coloring it. Let me know what you think!


    Update # 1 - Partially colored and slight adjustments made.

    Boring meetings? Hell I can sympathise with that, it takes everything in my power not to fall asleep. It's not like I'm even needed in half of them...

    My only problem with this is that it looks like Arcee is smiling. Having said that, I love how wrecked BB is and the cavalry coming to the rescue. I'd love to see a fully coloured version :thumbs2:

    Bah unfortunately MY job leaves me unable to sketch in my spare time (Truck driver), which sucks because I've got some ideas for H4D Hubcap I'd love to sketch.

    Bah, right now I don't even have paper anyway.

    Nice linework man :thumb s.

    Nice artwork! But.. Er... why is Arcee smiling? And BB doesn't look like he's in pain. Looks more like he's enjoying himself being 'touched' by Arcee.. But it's probably just me and my twisted mind.

    WIP Update # 1

    Thanks for the feedback, gang. I started coloring this and thought I'd share my progres so far. I also adjusted Arcee's lips, so as to not make her seem like she's "smiling".

    What medium are you coloring with? I'd like to see this colored in Photoshop as well :)

    Watercolor markers. I have ZERO skill with Photoshop.

    Anyone out there who wants to take a stab at coloring it, I'd appreciate it. In the meantime, I should have an update soon.
