tf: spotlight arcee alt cover. by markerguru tf: spotlight arcee alt cover. by markerguru
here are the pencils for the alt cover to the arcee spotlight.
i was messing around with fisheye perspective. i'm interested in the warped feel it gives the image. since its suppose to be disturbing i felt it would work well with this cover. oh, for some who have asked on the tf boards, the head is suppose to be large, cause its the focal point, and i wanted to focus on the face. i also made the computers smaller so we can see more of her body. also there more like pad size comp's anyways.

It's the pencils, lineart, and WIPs that I like best. Seriously, my favorite parts of the Spotlight comics is always the concept art in the back :D

This is by far the most awesome transformers cover I have EVER seen. It gets back to one of the biggest roots (if not THE root) in this type of Science Fiction (Maria Metropolis). When I saw this for the first time I was instantly blown away by the resembelances. This cover alone can just about tell the entire story. I like the perspective most of all. It keeps you waiting for her eyes to light up and shoot holes through you when she comes back online. After seeing this cover I went looking for some of your other works. Keep up all the awesome work. You bring alot to the Transformers Universe. Thanks

standard comic page size. so the paper was 11x17 but the workable area would be smaller.

Awesome picture. The perspective effect is great, aswell as the "melted eye-liner" on her cheeks.

Absolutely :worship:

This looks absolutely amazing. I love how you've depicted her deconstructed, and the oil bleeding from her optics. Almost makes me think of Maria from Metropolis. Clean lines, and a gorgeous job.

I found the old black and white one a bit rough to sit through, but then again I was a lot younger when I saw it. The animated version done in Osamu Tezuka's style was a bit different, but fairly enjoyable. Both are worth seeing at least once, in my opinion. :D

Very interesting concept for a character that hasn't really had many chances to shine, even if she was a regular.

Poor Arcee... What have you done to the strong and wise and oh so kind fembot? Now she looks goddamn scary.

The drawing is wonderful, that goes withut saying (I especiacially like the wires going from the head and the oldschool computers), but all attempts to make Arcee more vicious than she is sadden me.

well, you can blame simon furman for that. he's totally re-worked her into a psycho.

I guess, a lot of people like this particular piece of fanservice. Pity I'm not among them.

not really fanservice i'd say. its a whole new take on arcee for the idw universe. now for the comic, this is how she'll be until simon want to make her different. not everyone's cup of tea, but read the story when it comes out, and see what you think. its different.
