MORE Cybertron Character Concept Art and Design Details from Stephen Zavala

Stephen Zavala, Senior Concept Artist @ Industrial Light and Magic, gives us much more of what we been asking for with an even closer look at the Transformers Cybertron sequence characters from the Bumblebee movie.

Get a look at the full CGI renders for Arcee, Brawn, Ironhide. Ratchet, Ravage, Shockwave and Wheeljack along with notes from the designers on the how and what they chose for the characters. As before, the designs are just a joy to look at and only make it easier to imagine what could be a full on Cybertron based Hollywood movie, one day.

MORE Cybertron Character Concept Art and Design Details from Stephen Zavala


Arcee

Arcee from Transformers: Bumblebee. By far my fav Transformer design for the movie. For all these concepts I tried to retain the essence of the G1 cartoon designs; I grew up with them so I wanted to update the designs, not change them. Also, pleeeeeease tell me how thick her thighs are for the nth time cause I can;t wait to hear it.


Brawn

Brawn from Transformers: Bumblebee. The first Transformer I designed for the Cybertron sequence. This once was the easiest, meaning that it didn't go through a lot of changes. Few changes make everybody happy. The 3D model was done by the talented Gerald Blaise here at ILM.

Ironhide

Ironhide from Transformers: Bumblebee. The basis body of the Autobot army. Funny how this was designed first and it's not that featured that much in the final movie. Final details on the head and the chest were done by Alex Jaeger.

Ratchet

Ratchet from Transformers: Bumblebee. Ratchet was mostly and after thought after I designed Ironhide. We needed to populate the Cybertron scene with a lot of Autobots and we didn't have a lot of time to do it, so we essentially cloned my Ironhide design, changed colors, replaced heads and had them as the Autobots army. Ratchet was the only "unique" clone since he ended up being featured more prominently. And because all of this you can see the Ratchet artwork is a little more rough since I only did a quick color swap to use as a color guide (don't really love that I left those reds that saturated). The 3D model was done by the talented Gerald Blaise here at ILM.

Ravage

Ravage from Transformers: Bumblebee. A collab design done with the talented Karl Lindberg. We originally tried the puma approach but as we progressed (and began wondering why Ravage should look like a creature from Earth) we tried to make him more of a hybrid. Inspired by dragons, wolves, and the puma, we put those together for the final version.

Shockwave

Shockwave from Transformers: Bumblebee. My second fav transformer to work on. Yes, he's thicc, deal with it.

Wheeljack

Wheeljack from Transformers: Bumblebee. The very first Transformer I designed for the show. This one was the one that took the longest to approve. This was a specific characters director Travis Knight wanted in the movie so I figured it'd be better to do him first to fine tune him the most compared to other Transformers. Final head design in the film was done by Thang Le and Alex Jaeger. The 3D model was done by the talented Gerald Blaise here at ILM.
