TF Energon Profile book COVERS by GuidoGuidi TF Energon Profile book COVERS by GuidoGuidi
Back on late 2004 -right before its demise- ex-Transformers publisher Dreamwave Prod. started an Energon profile books project:
"Energon: more than meets the eye" (MTMTE)

I was commissioned to do many interior artworks for single characters, as well as the 3 book's covers, which were meant to be each 1/3 of a bigger picture, a sort of all-characters poster (just like the Armada MTMTE covers, penciled by Joe NG)... above the 3 covers combined!

Medium: no.2/HB pencils, markers on 3 11x17 artboards.

Yay! The great team is ready to battle! COOLNESS! I have hardly tried to find Jetfire in it, but every transformer looks absolutely amaizing!

I always love the Energon series (the toys anyways) it was my favorite out of the three. Way better than Cybertron. Armada doesn't even exist IMHO. :p

Too bad this never saw the light of day.

Fantastic artwork-the fact that it's in black and white shows how detailed it looks with the characters and the sheer sight of it; very cool. Sigh, I really enjoyed the Energon comic book and was disappointed it didn't get finished or that the profile books didn't come out.

Oh wow, that's freaking amazing. Crying shame the Energon MTMTE never got off the ground though. :(

If I were feeling suicidal I'd almost celshade this (with your permission, of course)... but I treasure my sanity and can't imagine tackling something of that magnitude. evar. @.@

Anyhow, this deserves a fave. :D

*blink* Wow, how did you manage to keep track of them all? I would just get confused eventually and then have no clue what part belonged to who, or even who I had drawn.

Davvero dinamica^^ Mi sono sempre chiesto quanto tempo ci metti a fare una tavola cos,strapiena di particolari... E se usi uno schema prestabilito o la composizione e le varie pose ti nascono sul momento

man, that looks like one awkward elevator ride. can almost hear the G1 theme playing in muzak style.

crazy intense work. good use of line variation to keep it all readable- obviouly it was also intended to be colored but it still reads fine

Your artwork is so good, everytime I see a new piece, I pinch myself, just so make sure I'm not dreaming...*Looks at my purple and blue arm* The pain...it's so worth it! XDDD

Nice work! I'm not a fan of the Energon-era designs, but you really make them work and get the figures looking less blocky and immobile and give them a more lively and animated quality. :) Excellent work! Very well done!
