Transformers - Escape from Chicago by zazB Transformers - Escape from Chicago by zazB

Short story; it’s a Transformers fan art! Drawn and inked be me and colored by Eve eve-bolt.deviantart.com/

Long story; I love the concept of the Transformers, even if I know it’s a franchise that exists mostly to sell toys. When the live-action movies were made I was excited because in my opinion the robots and the transformations looked amazing. Then I saw them and I was not so excited anymore. At the time I thought; if only they could get rid of those humans and focus on the robots punching each other! I now believe I was wrong and the thing to do would be to get rid of those caricature characters and focus on the relation between said robots and humans with both of them being more developed.

My inner 14 years old then said to me: Think you can do better, you overgrown kid? I had no idea if I could, but I wanted to try. So this is what I came up with: the story of a young woman escaping from the devastated Chicago of the last movie to get back to her family. What she doesn’t know is that her motorcycle is not what it appears to be anymore.

I did this image and it was a great deal of fun, researching into motorcycling, bike designs and actually drawing it. I don’t know if I can make it into something more than just an illustration, mostly because I don’t even know where I stand on the whole fan art/fan fiction thing.

So there, if you have any opinion on that, feel free to leave a comment! Even if it’s only to discuss how challenging it is to draw and ink wheels in perspective :)

As a long-time Transformers fan, I love and approve of your ideas and what you have done with it!

The design of your 'Con here is really nice; their look really looks like something that would plausibly become a motorcycle without breaking the mass shifting rule (Arcee from Transformers Prime, I love ya but really your alt mode should only turn into your leg or something).

Focusing on the deeper, emotional bonds between human and 'bot is something I love to see more of. Indeed, 'till all are one'.

Thank you!
Designing proper transformers is a lot of hard work!
I'm with you on Arcee, the design is awesome but I wonder where does she hide all those parts in motorcycle mode.

You're very welcome!
We can both be jealous of eachother.

Of course we can! :D

I don't have an ArtStation account, but I don't really know what it is. Is it like the new cghub?

It's like CGhub, but people post less metal bikinis and robot orcs, and more of OTHER things. Better system for promoting a wider variety of art, and it's great connecting with artists there because most of them are pros.
