As we promised.. Professional Dreamwave, IDW and freelance artist, our interviewee, Transformers fan, and all-round great person James Raiz has a little something up his creator sleeve, in order to prepare for his presence at TFCon Toronto! In collaboration with the fans here on Seibertron.com, Raiz will be drawing two art pieces that will make it to print, bringing together the G.I. Joe and Transformers franchises - Autobots and Joes on one, Decepticons and Cobra for the other - and to make it an even playing field, he'll be using characters from the live-action movies for both.

Where do the fans come in? You get to choose the characters, right here, right now, and follow the progress as your choice gets worked through some artist's magic into the TFCon art piece. Check out the exclusive video that Raiz sent us embedded below, and pick your choices for the first round!

Hi Everyone! First off, thanks to Va'al, Ryan and the good folks at Seibertron.com for collaborating with me :)

And speaking of collaborating, it'll be a lot of fun to collaborate with you all! So please do follow me on Social Media, but please keep all your suggestions to this thread, so it would be a lot easier for us to keep tabs on it :)

This is going to be a lot of fun, and can't wait to work on this with all of you, and hopefully meet you at a convention this year - possibly TFCon if you will be going!

Thanks so much and talk to you soon!

He's an excellent artist, but by limiting the project to movie TFs, all he really has to be able to draw is one drab grey ball of steel wool and shredded metal and put eyes on it. Ironhide, my piece de resistance

Can't wait to see what the result of this will look like!
(Also, my vote's going to DOTM Bumblebee, but I don't see that version up there so I'll go with AOE 'Bee)

Sideswipe (Revenge of the Fallen)- I'm a fan of cutting cars in half.
Scarlett (Rise of Cobra)- I'm a fan of redheads.
Boom! Vote'd!

Also, it's awesome to have you here in the forums James! I've enjoyed your art since the Dreamwave days, keep at it ;)^

I'll admit I know nothing about G. I. Joe, but I'll put down a vote for Dino (Dark of the Moon), he was pretty cool. Can't wait to see it started!

Put a mark down beside DotM Sideswipe and Rise of Cobra Scarlett.
Being a redhead myself, I am a fan of the ginger-warriors.
Sideswipe is my favorite movie Autobot and one of my favorite transformers as a whole. the DotM version was my fav since he had a stealth mode, a wing, and his new guns looked pretty sweet. Plus he's a mean roller-skater Sword-fighter like none other, so he gets my vote :BOT:

Great to have you hear James!

Jazz (07 Movie)- My favorite Movie Transformer Autobot design
Scarlett (Rise of Cobra)- Eye candy =X

Screw it, my vote goes to Sideswipe (DoTM) and Scarlett. That sounds awesome.

Mr. Raiz, it's great to have you on the boards! I'm a big fan of your work!

Well, while I'm not a big fan of movie TFs, I'll put my hat out there and say Sentinel Prime, 'cause he was one cool looking 'bot.

For the Joes... I'll go for Scarlet as long as she's drawn as a kick butt woman and not "cheesecake" if you catch my drift. Strong independent women, for the win (plus... yeah... redhead. Swoon...).

Woulda loved him in red, but meh. The bigger injustice was his 56 seconds of ass kicking in the opening of the movie... and then essentially never seen again. *sigh*

I want to see Shipwreck paired with a wrecked ship.
No vote for me.

Edit: I'm voting for the second round now so I don't forget.

Destro & Lockdown.

For the bots i have to go with Jazz & for the Joes its a tie between Snake Eyes & scarlet. Also just a thought, shouldnt sentinel be listed as a decepticon? He did betray the autobots & killed ironhide. Yeah he never officially said he was a con but his actions were far from that of an autobot.

I would like to say that this is so awesome :grin:
and that James is a great artist, I can't wait to see what he does with this. :D
My choices for the Autobot is -Sentinel Prime (Dark of the Moon) :BOT:
and for the Joe it is - General Joseph Colton (Retaliation) :GIJOE:
I can't wait to make a decision for the Cons and Cobra.
