Optimus Prime - Who's Next? by Tanqexe Optimus Prime - Who's Next? by Tanqexe
Optimus Prime being a BAMF.

This was one of the collabs in :iconabortedcreativity: between :iconv2buster: and me, completed at Otakon.

:iconv2buster: was going for a hybrid design between the live action movie and Gen 1. I've probably got a few mistakes in here, since this is probably the first time I've ever painted anything for Transformers. Funny since Transformers was what got me into art as a wee little boy.

So that's Megatron in the back, and Starscream being pwned and missing a limb there. I tried to model parts of the Starscream after the F-22 but not in the same way that the movie did it.

Tranformers are evil, they make people kill one another (just look at yourselves mouhaha). Anyway that was worth it, the pic is beautiful ^^. The warm light, soft textures of the robots, enigmatic background.. Well you got it ;p.

Does your friend's cat also have the urge to usurp her domain?

aside from generally loving the megatron redesign here;

isn't starscream a bit too far-off though? especially with the face. well I guess to be fair to you im a big fan of Screamer and is the only thing I feel is worth watching TF for :D im a starwhore allright.

Yeah Phil wanted to go more for a more alien, cat-like appearance to the face, instead of a humanoid-looking one with expressions. I guess the rationale is that the Decepticons would be less keen at appearing more "human" to the denizens of Earth, as opposed to the more benevolent Autobots who would want to mingle with humans.

Rick and I were about to strangle each other over how to do this piece. True story.

Ah, the joys of collabs.

And if you were to mock-strangle each other, best to do it with either Jack's or my camera around. :devilish:

Awesome piece though. If my bro cared for prints, this would definitely be a must-get-for-him.
