Chades Challenge Sketch – Rejected Transformers

Drawing for the July 15th character design challenge on The theme for this challenge was “Rejected Transformers”.

I found inspiration for this sketch in the Transformers: Dark of the Moon concept art posted at Concept Art World:

What really intrigued me about the concept art for Transformers was the labels on them. The logos add a nice touch and quickly indicate which faction the robots fight for. The rest of the labels list the name of the character, any notes about the image, the date the image was created, the artist who created it, and, perhaps most importantly, the filename. Good file naming conventions often get overlooked by students and those new to production. Organization is everything. Having solid file organization conventions in place at the beginning of a project is essential, even if you think you’ll be working alone on the project.
