Finished Fall 2018, Clip Studio Paint.
I did this for a Gender-flipped art challenge, where the artist had to take characters that were primarily known as being one gender and draw them as another. So I decided to do gender-flipped Transformers and make Rodimus Prime into a female and Arcee into a male.
I think Girl-Rodmius actually kind of works! She still looks powerful and commanding. Arcee as a dude, well, I'm not so sure. I just tried to make the body blocky and more like a typical male Transformers character to be different than Arcee's usually slender self. He sure is pink though! I thought that maybe it could work as like the pink that guys wore in the 80's and early 90's. It took a few tries to get the right shade that still worked for Arcee. I didn't even think about the IDW version when I drew this.
I went all out on the cel-shading on this. Tried some new techniques and I think it mostly looks pretty good. I'll get the hang of it.
