Optimus Prime by LivioRamondelli Optimus Prime by LivioRamondelli
This is a recent digital painting, done for fun. I was mainly hoping to get a look reminiscent of the original Transformers cartoon and movie-meaning more linework on the characters contrasted by a looser, more painterly sky. I also wanted to convey the sheer size of Optimus Prime, I pictured him like a lumbering building. And so I added the birds taking off from his back.

To show the matrix shining into Optimus is a great idea, I think... Very very nice, a bit sentimental... I like it!

Whoah, Optimus isn't looking in the best shape. Then again, Starscream, Soundwave, Rumble, Skywarp, Acid Storm, and at least one Constructicon look like they've died, so Prime's probably in the best shape out of anyone else in the picture.

As a quick note, I got bored and decided to convert ANY and ALL images of Optimus into the Shattered glass version, I do NOT plan on posting them on deviant art, since they were already made by other people, however, I do want to point out that this version of Optimus looks really cool in the SHattered glass form,

It feels like Optimus just spent all night grinding through endless battle. Dawns early light illuminated his survival, but his eyes are not filled with pain, but with more determination. I get the impression that More decepticons are in front of him and he must soldier on.
What was your concept development for the back ground? Is this early morning lighting?

Yeah, you nailed it pretty spot on. I imagined it being early dawn light..

What an incredibly realistic approach to the scale and perspective of Optimus Prime. Having the birds flying off him to give us that impression is pure genius! Sir, I am going to be watching your artwork from here on out. In fact, I am going to share this on facebook because I think this picture is far too impressive to go unrecognized. Fantastic job!
