BOTCON  -  SORTA  NEAR  CHICAGO
(griffin's 2015 BotCon adventure)


- SUNDAY 21st JUNE - 11am - ART OF TRANSFORMERS -


This was just a panel of some Transformers artists answering questions.  They didn't show any art.
(in case you didn't realise it, there was no IDW panel/presentation or Dealer Room table this year)

From left - Casey Coller (artist), Josh Bircham (colourist), Josh Perez (colourist), Robby Musso (artist).

Favourite projects...
Robby - Spotlight Ultra Magnus, which was his first official Transformers project.
Josh B - FunPub Comics and characters
Casey - Combiner Wars covers
Josh P - colouring the BotCon 2015 Script Reading images

Josh B, Josh P, Robby - all use various versions of Photoshop for colouring artwork.

Favourite characters..
Robby - Gen1 like Optimus, Megatron, Starscream.
Josh P - Bumblebee and anyone with fun shapes.
Josh B - Optimus.  Likes Faceplates for the challange of portraying emotion without a face.
Casey - Jazz.  Likes Faces for more personality.

Inspiration...
Robby - Gen1 cartoon and JP Mecha styling.
Casey - Andy Wildman and Geoff Senior.

First official image Casey drew - Megatron holding Reflector.
Robby drew Spotlight Ultra Magnus cover before he saw the script as he was told to just draw an action shot for the advance solicitations.



The next Panel is the Script Reading, but if you were going through these pages in order, it was the page before this one.
If not, go here for the Script Reading.
