I was asked to do some movie Bumblebee artwork for this year's Auto Assembly (Europe's biggest Transformers con) back in August. This illustration of Bee appeared on the cover of the Cybertronian Times (the con magazine), mugs and other stuff although the original pic was just Bee on his own (I slung a background in there to make it look more interesting).
It was also the cover image for a CD by the band 'Next of Kin'. sold at the show. They were guests at AA and played various songs from the TF animated movie among others and totally rocked the place. Singing 'the Touch' with these guys (along with Simon Williams, Nick Roche, Liam Shaloo, Kris Karter and a host of other bods) was an experience I won't forget in a hurry! O.o
I enjoyed doing this piece, hope you guys like it too!

but this pic is amazing!!! i love it!!
Been bugging me what his pose reminds me of since I first saw the pic and the other day I think it I remembered but not sure. I think I saw the anime character Tekkaman Blade in a very similar pose. Used to love watching Teknoman on Fox Kids in the late 90's. Anyways I posed my Battle Blade Bumblebee into this pose after seeing your drawing though now he's in car form packed away for my move this friday but when all my movie TF's are unpacked again I'll likely do that pose again.
I really love the way you do the shadings, pushes the level of detail even further
