tf: spotlight arcee cover. by markerguru tf: spotlight arcee cover. by markerguru
ok, so after seeing simon's blog on the idw forum, i guess it's safe to put this up here.
well here is the cover for the next transformers spotlight.
yep, it be arcee, but no arcee you've ever seen. she be one real badass bitch who won't take any crap.
i had a lot of fun redesigning her for idw, the most fun was making her alt mode. i do believe that with a little bit of a tweak, this can be made into a toy. wouldn't that be cool?
anyhoo, still gotta pick out the colors for her.
hopefully they'll be just as cool
enjoy

I personally find this a vast improvement over the motherhen character from the animated movie and the third season.

Sounds like Arcee has been written by Simon as a femme who doesn't take crap from anyone(and the includes a certain turbo-revin young punk).I guess that is why Hot Rod and Arcee didn't get along very well.I think that he found her too intimidating and he prefers a femme who is more girly girl than a kickass babe.At least that is my take on their relationship or lack there of.

It is interesting how she looks now :aww:
Compared to the old movie (made in the 1984 i guess) she looks more like a fighter-woman, than in the movei :3
Of course, as far as I know there are really a few woman shape/personality autobot or decepticon in the whole story :aww: So, I guess it is no wonder why she looks this way :3
More like an amazon or something like that ;)

Wow, I can't wait to see this in color, but the lineart is interesting to me too. I just recently discovered that varying thickness of ink lines makes the picture really pop. My stuff's not like this, but I can see the effects here too. See, art can be a teaching tool too! :D

So the spotlight on acree is going to focus on them? That would be so cool. Hope to see Optimus or any other autobots.

Oh, wow...

Actually, I think pink would work here, though not too bright a shade. Somehow I would think this Arcee would find it useful - hides the presence of the pink hue of energon better and all that.

I dunno if my last comment with through, but less pink is better. I think a badass Arcee with black/white with hints of pink would be hawt.

Izzat Fortress Maximus in the BG?

And, I'm really looking forward to getting the Animated Arcee toy, I think it'll be the first officially released toy based on G1 Arcee, with hopefully a car alt-mode (I know there was a canned Titanium one, a canned Headmaster repaint and a non-official one by some Squirrel company or something).
