Optimus Prime DVD gallery art!! (Updated 5.25.09)

*Filling in for the busy month of April is a brand new May entry...

This artwork of G1 Optimus Prime was created in May specifically for the new Shout Factory release of the classic Transformers GI DVD fanart gallery media section that is to be added as extra content to the discs.
Although it was a somewhat of a short notice opportunity, more designed for previously created artwork, I did my best to create a brand-new image, a simple, clean expression of a core character in the classic animation's representation.
I'm hoping it gets selected for the DVD, as it is a great way to have my art on officially licensed Transformers merchandise, as well as great exposure!!
I will update as it becomes official.

Special thanks to Shout Factory for the opportunity, & my brother(s) Randy (for pointing the submission op out) as both he & Brian gave me feedback on the piece.

  2. Thanks for your enthusiasm my friend!! I have a brand new wacom tablet coming in next week, so I predict you will see a LOT more sketches, character designs, & full color finals happening right here on the blog, basically more artwork then ever before!! @_@

  3. I'm glad to hear that! I'm going to brace myself for awesome.

  4. The wait is over...

  5. Fantastic work! It looks like he was taken right out of the cartoon!

  6. Thanks buddy, that's what I was aiming for, some cartoon accuracy for a cartoon dvd set!!
