Alex Milne Dark Cybertron Arcee Design

Posted on 03-21-2014 at 04:16 PM by Sol Fury under Comics
idw_dark_cybertron_arcee_design_by_markerguru-d7axxs1 Transformers comic artist Alex Milne has shared some cool new artwork on his Deviant Art account. In More than Meets the Eye #27, Arcee sports a new body, and what Alex has shared with us is a look at his design for that new body.

It's important to bear in mind that this is not necessarily based on the upcoming Arcee toy - Alex states it is based on a concept design he got from Hasbro, which he thinks Hasbro might base the toy off of - but it's not by any means a done deal.

In any event, check out this cool bit of artwork and be sure to read Alex Milne's notes on the piece for a bit of an insight into the design process.
