    Another concept I was working on while doing some commissions, I wanted to see how well this style would do on a TF Prime Figure, to add more of a cartoon vibe I changed the head with an extra battle tanker one I had and gave him his iconic ion rifle from the mini MP prime. hope you guys like! :)

    While I truly enjoy the style and the perfect coloring, I just don't think the head fits the figure well. It seems a good bit too small.

    This can almost past for an IDW Optimus. Looks great. The mold is still a bit too curvy for my taste but your paint work is awesome.

    It looks good, but the head and body don't match up too well. The body is curvy and angular, but the head is too boxy...If that makes sense. But I love that shading!!!

    I honestly prefer that head on it, I hate the movie-style Prime head. Nice job.

    Awesome job! Though I must agree that the head seems a little boxy for that body.

    I love the head and the paint work is smooth as always BUT I think some of the cell shading is a tad to dark and kinda makes it tiger stripish....IMO...non the less GREAT work!

    As normal, the paint work is awesome........ but the cell shading is a bit overdone on this one IMHO. If you scaled it back a bit I think the effect would be more striking.

    Thanks! I'm actually surprised you feel the head is too small considering that the original is smaller than this one, still I guess I can search for an alternate option, thanks for the feedback! :) 
    Thanks Idw is precisely where I was drawing inspiration from! :) 
    Thanks very much! glad you are liking my take in this style. :) 
    Thank you! I guess i'll look for another option on the head if I make a version 2. Thanks! :) 
    Thanks man! :) 
    Thanks!
    Thanks! I gess the head is a hit or miss, but I am glad you dig it! :) 
    Thanks very much! will definitely consider another headsculpt for V2.
    Thank you! I appreciate your kind words toward my work! :)

    Thanks guys! I can see where you are coming from with the cel shading, I'm still trying to balance it out between not being too strong and not too subtle so I'll definitely keep on trying! :)

    your cell shading is something to behold and while there is always room for improvement for everyone, its VERY hard for me to poke at it on this piece :)
