Finally! This is the most perfect cartoon look of Optimus I have found!! I'm currently making an Optimus Prime costume and yes I watch G1 all the time but its nice to have one really well done still outside of the show since the quality will be better. :D

Well, it is a good pose. It has that whole "One shall stand, one shall fall" feel to it.

You saw Peter Cullen? I'm jealous...

dang!! that is insanely close to the G1's design... I honestly did a double-take at first, because I thought it was some sort of screencap. :blush:

fabulous job!! and I'm jealous of your friends, getting to meet Mr. Cullen like that. :heart:

Great job for making the best art I seen so far. Intentionally, there's alot of Transformers fans around who loves Optimus Prime. Guess what? Micheal Bay's new film made almost $300,000,000 and still counting. TRANSFORMERS! MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!

Ya see....I thought you had done for your own purposes Will.....god your not selfish enough. ;P

Nah damn good picture to hand to Mr Cullen (for yourself). I'm sure the main man would love it.

Nice tribute picture, although it isn't a tribute picture. :P

Oh it's nothing bad man! Have you seen mine yet?
It means that I will give you my email or aim screen name and you will give me yours and we will just exchange a decent size JPEG.
Like an 8.5 x 11 at 200 dpi. Not so we can sell or replicate eachothers art, just to trade like... baseball cards or something. Ya know, like instead of buying prints off of eachother.... we trade.
Hey, a lot of artists do it on here, I've done it with several. If you're not comfortable... you don't have to man. Just was curious since we're both Optimus fans. XD
Let me know.
