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 :)

You're my favorite artist on EARTH. You just get it all right, relaxed and rigid, perfectly confident line weights, colors that are simple and to the point without being bleak. Reminds me a mix of Mignola and Tank Girl and Disney all bottle up. So good... finally had to say something. Been a quiet stalker for a long while now. Keep it up, you're ALWAYS inspiring.

Thanks a bunch :)
Though I must say, there are a lot of better (and more productive) artists than me you should look up to! That being said, I'll try not to disappoint!

Not yet. I'm still trying to decide which project I will start working on among the four I have. Choosing name for characters is hard for me so it comes later in the development.
