Yes, that was a compliment xD Your designing skills are amazing, I just dont understand how you do it *n* I can never design them like that, no matter how hard I try to draw them comic-style

lol well thank you again then. :) my design process is kind of weird. i always start thinking of a personality and a character name... then an alt mode... and go from there. with beamer here though, i definitely had a base since he's been around for almost about 18 years now (!!). that and lots of influence from all of the awesome design work in the mtmte books. :)

Looking on the wiki, seems there's a couple versions of the original one with the G1 stuff, and some released in 2009 with stuff about newer toys. Here's the article for the original book: [link]

Man, he looks good like this- well, he looked good before. It's fun digging through and looking at all the versions through the years. :D For some reason, I'm really loving his shoulders...

Glad to know you've not been totally swallowed by work and life! ;)

:iconbeamer:
beamer Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
i think i want to change his shoulders in his earth-mode to sort of match. i started drawing the guy not long ago and kept thinking that he was just too darn bulky ... and that the big square parts just don't match the style of vehicle he was. it just didn't make sense anymore! aarrrgh!

and life and work are pretty darn close to swallowing me. they may have actually. i just climbed back out. XD

Yah, I totally get it. Revamping a character, you kind of see all the things that bug you, that you never really realized bugged you. Hhaha, yeah, the thing is back then, all the cars were well -- sort of square and thick and bulky, and now we're much lighter and curved and not so sharp-edged or wide. Having the same problem over here a bit.

Hahah yeah, me too. But I'm not overseas and I still feel like that! ;) Sigh, when did we become responsible adults and let it take over?

Although the nice thing about being responsible adults is that steady jobs let us buy more toys. Or something like that!

That'd be rude! It was being judged for a concours d'elegance at the BMW CCA's Oktoberfest in 2011. Kind of foggy/misty, though, the moisture was beading so beautifully on its exterior.

Aha! The face behind the artwork, very cool bot design, what's his vehicle mode?
Reply
:iconbeamer:
beamer Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
hehe. yep yep. I think I tweak his design probably once every couple of years honestly. For now, his vehicle mode is just a cybertronian looking car (that is slightly bmw-eque i guess). I had a cyb version of him before actually... but he was WAAAAAY to chunky/clunky.

Love the wheel placements. I assume you gave him a functional transformation?

well... he always HAD a functional design before (or at least, in my head he did). so... still functional i suppose. lol I just gotta do the vehicle mode now to finish this out. hehe
