IDW Dark Cybertron Arcee Design by markerguru IDW Dark Cybertron Arcee Design by markerguru
here is the design i came up with based off of a concept from hasbro. 
not sure if this is what the new Arcee toy will look like.  the design i was given was not a toy image nor was it an image that looked like it could transform.  it was just a concept which i think hasbro wanted to base the new toy off of.  so i had to work with that and come up with something that i feel keep the look they want to use and work withing the world the comic is set in :)
the only thing i did a bit differently in the comic was i made her legs a bit longer.  i ran out of paper on this image and i did want her legs a bit longer.
with the head i did put elements from the original IDW Arcee in it so i could tie the new design with comic look :)
so i'm not sure what the toy will look like, but this was fun getting to draw a new version  of Arcee :)
enjoy

I love this new design! Thank goodness she's not the stereotypical supermodel figure female TFs have been in the past. (Except Strika, yay) I love variety of frame type even in femmes, it feels more realistic and relatable, plus she looks powerful while still being feminine. 

And can I say it's refreshing to know even you suffer from canvas size dictating your proportions? I have to cheat this in Photoshop because I always get it wrong the first time. /shakes fist

Oh this is so cool! She looks feminine without going for any easy visual shortcuts in that respect, and this look also really suits her temperament, I think. Ahh I just love your robot designs :)

It's reminiscent of Samus's power armor (at least to me). Feminine yet powerful. Whether that aspect comes from your input or the concept, you've done a nice job!

I really like the redesign.  She has a bit of a "butch" look, while still looking very feminine.  Great balance! I got to see the same concept art as well, so its really interesting to see your take on it. :)

I'm really digging her overall figure--especially those legs.  Nice and strong legs.

I really love it! I was very happy to see her new design in Dark Cybertron :3 

Will you be posting a sketch design of how you draw Nautica, Chromia, and Windblade as well?

i didn't design those characters.  most of them were designed by James Raiz and i based their looks off those designs.  then he changed some of them when he drew the comic but i kept them the same as the original designs.

Ahhh, cool! I was wondering where Nautica's visor went! xD

Either way, awesome job, man :D
