Arcee: Spotlights Recolor by dyemooch Arcee: Spotlights Recolor by dyemooch
I got bored and decided to recolor the characters on the Arcee cover that Alex and I worked on for the Arcee: Spotlight.
You can see the original cover here: [link]

Changed Nova Prime to his Nemesis color scheme that *dcjosh came up with, Fort. Max recolored into his RiD/Car Robot colors, the Monstructor-team recolored into their Japanese Dinoforce counterparts, Magnus is repainted into his Movie Preview/Diaclone colors, the random dead robot gets random red and black colors, and Arcee gets the original color scheme that Alex wanted for her. Nothing grand here; I just wanted to take a work break and recolor that cover. Yum.

-kuh-kuh-kick ass lines: *markerguru (ALEX MILNE)
Colors: me : D
Transformers and the characters represented are © Hasbro/TakaraTomy.
Spotlight: ARCEE is an IDW comic that will be released sometime next year.

OKAY. So I thought I made this obvious, but let's try this again. I DID NOT DRAW THIS.. I COLORED THIS. It stated *markerguru as the artist, but I went back and BOLDED it and added his name "ALEX MILNE" to it.
PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE. If you pay attention to ANYTHING, pay attention to this: I. DID. NOT. DRAW. THIS. Alex Milne is the artist, I am the COLORIST. I COLORED THIS.

We good? We good? STOP SAYING THAT I DID A GOOD JOB ON THE ART- I only did the COLORS. Thank you.

Strange thing is, the scientist who made Arcee in the IDW G1 continuity is said to have altered her CNA in order to make her female, meaning that SHE used to be a HE.

I've learned how to work with Alex's work more than any other artist; he gets easy to read- but I don't like to disappoint him color-wise :)

:I've been meaning to say this for a while but, great work! *markerguru gets the kudos for drawing this yes, but you get kudos for the coloring, this is fantastic, I've always thought color is what makes a picture look really good, I mean lineart is cool too, but color adds more depth to this, and personally I think Arcee looks better in blue, great work.

Wow, you replied, cool now, I can tell my friends I talked to you and not be lying. True, actually alot of female characters look better in any color other than pink (LIke Elita one looks better in Animated because she's yellow rather than 5 shades of pink) its just too sterotypical, and I'm glad you agree ^^

Agreed with the female characters v. pink as well.
I don't mind a pink bot here-and-there, but the color is so stereotypical that it's disgusting. While I hold nothing against people who DO like the color pink(boy or girl), I think that it's use with so many "toys for girls" has made the color an instant "I'm weak" tagline for anyone wearing it. This isn't ALWAYS the case, but it's usually the case.
TF:A Elita One DOES look a lot better in the yellow/teal. To me, it makes her look smart! :D

Zaerith-chan Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2009
Me neither, actually as a girl I do still like the color, I just prefer to wear blue or purple and black. And unlike some girls I will wear a skirt too.

Actually TFA Elita is the only one I like because she doesn't do nothing, all she did in G1 was get kidnapped and save OP ONCE (I have a full rant on how Animated Elita is better than G1 , if you don't want to hear it stop me now)

Oh my God, I can't believe I haven't noticed this masterpiece earlier!!! You and Alex are the greatest team I've ever saw here. And with this color cheme she reminds me of Chromia - and her spotlight persona suits it too! It's just great!!! :)

Nice job! Arcee does work in blue, now that I look at it. Also...the coloring on the guy below her is different now. It's reminding me of Cy-Kill. Heh heh.

Blue's a better colour than pink, anyway. That's why I always liked Chromia more than Elita-1

Excellent job. :) You two do great work together and I agree, I like her more as blue than pink.

This is an interesting re-color especially since Arcee is supposed to be quite different from the G1 cartoon version. I actually kinda of liked Ultra Magnus's original movie preview colors more.

We either get credit for something we didn't do, or we get no credit at all(not counting if the artists posts the work; Alex has been good with giving me credit). Isn't it gorgeous? XD

Isn't it funny how few people actually read the descriptions before commenting? 8D

Anyway, I have to say this version of the cover actually seems to work better visually. It has a very icy feel to it, like Arcee's in the middle of a battle in the arctic circle or something. You two make a great collaboration pair!
