This was a promo piece done for the Transformers collector's club. It was interesting to see the reactions. From what I know, this character makes a brief appearance in a TF episode set in the near future. With her name, it's suggested that she's the daughter of Lady Jaye and Flint from the GI JOE cartoon, and is the Earth's liaison to the Transformers. I like the idea of a crossover figure like this being made for a collector's club, because it's not something that Hasbro would likely produce. I'd much rather get figures like this from the clubs then repaints of figures already available.
But TF fans didn't see the point of it, and especially with a repainted vehicle that didn't transform. This seemed to me like a better fit for the GI JOE collector's club, since it's a repainted Joe vehicle and the ties of GI Joe characters. Still it was a lot of fun to draw, I liked the character design a lot and I always enjoy drawing vehicles and Transformer (like) material whenever I get the chance.
Here's my process for the job.
