the first movie I drew a Bumblebee girl for a friend of mine (whom she
dubbed "Bumblebabe"). It's a pretty fun piece to draw, even
it's pretty complicated, so I thought I'd update it for Revenge of the
Fallen (the nerd in me feels the need to point out that a lot of the
publicity art used for ROTF features movie 1 Bee, who has different
Camaro parts :3).
I used the new fenders ROTF Bumblebee sports in the movie, including
the new lights and red Chevy bowtie. I also decided to age
bit and tie her hair into a single high ponytail rather than the
pigtails my previous art had. I kept the freckles on her
I still wanted some of that cute factor. I also darkened her
a few shades, adding some red to it. In the previous pieces
was blond, and I had some trouble making her hair look different than
the Camaro car parts on her outfit. I think I fixed that
and the color scheme benefits from the change methinks. ^_^
*** Update Notes *** ***
I'm still really proud of the lines here, and even the colors have held
up nicely over the years. The piece never seemed "glossy"
so I used a slow Saturday afternoon as an excuse to revisit this one.
I made the yellow Camaro parts much brighter and closer to
actual car color, and darkened the grey and black metal parts for a
greater contrast. I toyed with making her blond this time
but found that the strawberry blond hair was still the way to go.
I think I might have gone a bit overboard on the reflective
surfaces, but it also makes the image pop a bit more. So I'm
standing by both versions, old and new. ^_^;
