Alex Milne Shows Off His Concept Art for IDW Riptide

If you like getting a sneak peek at the behind the scenes aspects of the Transformers brand, you should check out artist Alex Milne’s Twitter account. The latest tweets especially as they reveal the concept art and some of the artist’s thoughts and motivations for IDW’s latest new Transformers character! Riptide is, as his name suggests, an aquatic Transformer who turns into a boat for his alternate mode. Given this background, Mr. Milne decided to base “his colours slightly off the water tribe from avatar and korra [sic].” The end result of this decision is lots of intersecting white and blue shapes with some purple and teal as highlight colors.
