Someone commented on my previous TFP Elita picture that it lacked the vehicle mode parts to suggest transformation etc.
First I was like; "Man, like I could do vehicles! I suck at drawing them! "
Wallowing in my misery I started to browse my deviations and read comments. All your wonderful feedback heartened me (thank you all! I love you!) and I thought that - hey these guys believe in my talents! I can totally do vehicles! I can totally do anything if just I dare to try!
So I browsed
gallery (have to mention her, go and see the awesome stuff she draws! her tf art has really inspired me and given me wonderful tips ) and gazed her work so hard my eyes hurt and then I found some pictures of Arcee and stared at them
My self-belief completely re-found, I then spent the next evenings lectures drawing (screw the decision of not doing so) and here you see the result of hours of doodling, revamping and agonizing coloring...
I know my design is very much all over the place. Her midsection was a nightmare, and so were the shoulders, and choosing the right shade of pink (for I wanted her to be pink!) yet I'm again satisfied with the head and the face.
I love her G1 helmet
I wanted to retain her original look, with a bit more personality in it. Leading to the another problem of mine...
I know Elita is a complete kick-ass, she has to be, being the commander of female autobots and Optimus Prime's mate etc. But somehow I fail to get her badass-side on paper, seeing her more like a gentle and mature lady with personality. Furthermore I think Optimus would need someone calm and comforting to be there beside him easing the pain the war is causing, instead of just another angsty, tough fighter.
I tried to make her look cool but . . . I don't know! My brain is empty. I'll keep practising and let the judges (you people) decide
I still can't draw vehicles
