G1 Arcee Commission by dcjosh G1 Arcee Commission by dcjosh
Commission I just wrapped up the other day of G1 Arcee!

I might still tweak with the bkg though. Its kind of plain, I think, so i dunno. maybe i'll mess around with it some

But yeah!

after being used to IDW's murder/Rage Arcee and then getting used to her newer Murder/Rage look and then having to get used to her look from the games and TF Prime. I can finally say I really hate the original design now. lol

That being said this piece looks a bit on the plain side of things.

maybe you need to add some cybertronian architecture in the background, as black Silhouettes.

the speed lines should maybe be a different direction as well to emphasize where she's running from or where is she leaping towards.

Perspective is key here. :)

lol. she's definitely evolved a lot hasnt she!

I'm with ya about the architecture in the bkg. Ive heard a few other people suggest it as well so i'll try painting some of that in there [along with tweaking with the speedlines!]

I appreciate the suggestions, man! Thanks :D

Not a prob. anytime. I love your work. and the fact you also draw is a huge plus.

something about the background makes me feel like the image is a little bit like it was cropped from a larger image which I think has to do with the direction/angle of the lines. I like what Tim suggested though and I think that's definitely worth experimenting with. :)


all in all though, this is badass! and now I want a tf cartoon animated in your art style! fo realious!

haha xD
thanks! something animated with my art would be pretty awesome. pretty awesome to me anyways. doesnt mean itd be good :P

but yeah i'll definitely give what Tim's suggested a try. I'm sure it'll make it much better!!
creative soundboards for the win!

Speed lines! Yay!!!

I don't think it's too plain though, they're speed lines, so you don't need much. Here's a suggestion, not sure if it would help though....perhaps changing the direction of the speedlines to go up and left, the direction she seems to be leaping? That might change the kinesis of the pic and maybe make it feel less empty in the back because the alternate direction of the gun will sort of break the action? (that sounded a lot better in my head than how I just typed it so I hope that makes sense, LOL)

Thanks for sharing man!
