First off, the above headline is an example of the constant abuse Eddy Choi rains down on his fellow WildStormers. Whenever I leave the studio here every night, I sometimes say that I'm "rolling out"-which is an actual phrase used by normal people. However Eddy consistently accuses me of only knowing it because Optimus Prime says it.
Which brings us to this digital painting. I wanted to try and get a look reminiscent of the original Transformers cartoon and movie, meaning more linework on the characters contrasted against a looser, more painterly background. What I was going for here was to try and show just how massive Optimus Prime is- I thought of him along the lines of a huge, lumbering building. Which is why I added the flock of birds taking off from his back.
Hope everyone enjoys!
