Jazz 02

Here are some head sketches for the Jazz revision, and a couple of winners down below.
I like this one, although is doesn't subscribe to the original intent of the looking right at the viewer, but I like the body language it provides...
...and here's the looking right 'atcha version.

I can't decide, people. I'm dropping off the grid for about a week to move house and studio, so I won't be posting any new work. Anybody who wants to leave comment for a preference, I'll open it to a vote and announce the winner next week.

Look Front vs. Look Side - who will win?!?

And a side note, Toy Fair is happening right now, and I still haven't seen any new vid-game figs other than the forklift from the old game. It's a bummer, but I see there's some missing RotF characters as well, so I'm guessing Hasbro is holding back until the 5/30 release for the toys?

Jazz 01

The progress on Jazz, still drawing him out. I already decided that I'm probably going to change the head's orientation. The rough had him looking at the viewer, and I think of the six I'm working on, he'd be the only Autobot to look directly in 'camera', so I better work on it.

Since I drew it once already, I should have a better handle on it to draw alternate angles...

Starscream 03

Here's the Thundercracker, and an adjusted Skywarp - I cleaned up the far side intake, the angles weren't quite right.

And the final drawing image ready to go to color.

Starscream 02

A quick update, the drawing for Skywarp...I'll update later today as well with the in-progress Thundercracker.

Bumblebee and Spike 01

Another Autobot drawing...the Bumblebee and Spike piece. I had to add a bit more bulk to BB's back, any additional revisions I'll handle when I start blocking out the color.

I guess Spike is pointing out whose ass to kick?

Optimus Prime 02

Here's the full drawing for Prime, along with some digital help to resize his hand, and gun. Also needed to lengthen to the thigh on the full leg.

TF2 - The Game!

Link to the teaser for the game on , along with a couple screenshots of enemies I designed last spring.

I forgot to add...I also designed that turret that transforms out of Ironhide in the trailer!

Sorry Joe...

My buddy Joe Mateo lost out on an Annie award last weekend, for his work in the story department for Disney's Bolt. Dang Panda got the win, so I made a little e-card for him - this is the drawing that I did for it.

He was the voice for Tiny in Meet the Robinsons, in case you're wondering...'why the Dino suit?"

Optimus Prime 01

Here's the beginning of the Prime piece.

By the way, we're about to move, so I'm just doing the drawings for all of these before I go to just in case disaster occurs in the move and the hard drive gets fried, all I'd lose are just scans...

Soundwave 01

The drawing for Soundwave. Laserbeak came out nice, but Ravage will be redone. I like the design elements I added to the toon model, but the pose is too weak. He needs to be more crouched down and menacing.
