Optimus Prime by TimKelly Optimus Prime by TimKelly
Prime.

Inspired by that one commercial that had the blue truck that turned in optimus. The only Cg version of a transformer that has looked any good.

Gives me a very Terminator:Rise of the Machines kind of feel.  Very Gritty.  Almost as if the Transformer appeared after the fall of man and evolved.  I get a sense of maybe even a decaying or made of scrap kind of feel.  Remember when in the original series the "satellite/probe droid" sought out vehicles on Earth that resembled their alternate form on Cybertron? Yeah its like that only different.  Either way very cool and original twist.  Keep up the nice work.

This is Fantastic. The best part is that the Character is still in there.

I remembered a design similar to this in my lunchbox. I should do something similar. Awesome stuff! fc02.deviantart.net/fs24/i/200…

thanks! the the thighs on the original needed to go up into him, so functionally, i thought this would be cool. I still think Ashley Wood does them best.

I really enjoy the style implemented with Optimus Prime here. It makes him seem different but just as good as he should be. Good job

Why should he, it's called an artist's interpretation and it is not hurting the franchise in any way.

Yeah man, i never really got past the 86' movie. i never payed attention to anything other than that. i dug the toys and pictures on the boxes when i ever got them or was allowed to go to the toy section of whatever store i was at, so the Gen 1 look is the one i know. even though this plays with the style. cheers man!
