    Bumblebee came out rougher than I wanted, but I like him anyway. Ironhide was actually the first one I thought of, but it took longer to find his base.

    Nice job man. I always liked that awkward Backstop mold. He looks fantastic in red as BW Ironhide

    Those two look really nice :thumb :thumb 
    Only Bumblebee's robot head looks way too friendly compared to alt mode. A head from TF Prime or a Bayverse Bee might work better.
    And what do you use for panel lining? Looks like a common black marker. Have you thought about using washes?

    I used theathe fine tip of an "Artist's Loft" marker for the panels. As for washes, that's actually how I did Optimus' fur detail. Maybe I'll do one for bee, but honestly I kinda want to do Goldbug as a Beetle so I'm less inclined to do more with Bee.

    Ha that’s great! I painted a red Backstop once upon a time too. Nice ideas all around.
