    Hey there guys I have been thinking about doing this for quite some time and I have made it happen.


    I am throwing a contest for someone to create me a piece of artwork that represents "Maximus Prime"

    Here are the guidelines:


    Create a piece of artwork (preferably computer generated artwork) that you believe embodies Maximus Prime.

    One entry per person, when you have your FINAL work please make a notation of that.




    What I like to see:

    Animated style
    Classic style
    Tan-ish yellow as main color (Think Swindle but lighter tan)
    Robot and Alt mode


    What I DON'T want to see:

    Straight redeco of Optimus Prime



    The first confirmed prizes are...

    EDIT: Stealth Lockdown is being replaced by Universe Starscream and a mystery figure revealed at a later date, sorry for the inconvenience

    MISB Universe Sideswipe

    MISB Universe Starscream

    Mystery Figure, revealed at later date





    Lets see what you guys can do!




    EDIT 3: I have extended the deadline till I receive a few more entries. I am hoping to see any work from anyone. :)

    Cool idea! Just one question though...is this for people in the US only, or all around the world? I can understand one will only ship to the country borders, seeing as how expensive shipping can become..:)

    This contest is open for people in the U.S. and Canada. Sorry for the inconvenience

    Once I see all the designs I will judge which one is the best, it doesn't have to be perfect but if it is unique and catches my eye then it's all good.

    For those who don't know who he is maybe you should explain who Maximus Prime is. Also for mine, I'm nearly done drawing it out by hand, then I'll get it on the computer to clean the lines and color it hopefully before the weekend

    Alright I will give some details about Maximus Prime (I wanted to see what ideas you guys could come up with without many details)

    - A fearless leader

    - weapon/hand to hand combat (not really blasters, think of swords and such, not necessary for pic)

    - possible battle scars/damage

    - Cyberglyphics would be sweet


    Just a few things

    I meant to ask - do you mind if I upload it to my dA page to enter it, or would you rather have it uploaded here on TFW?

    Sorry to double post,but do you have any ideas as to what his vehicle mode would be,or do you want us to come up with our own?

    I've already started on my entry,I've got a very rough sketch outline and head design done,I just need to know about a vehicle mode before I can start actually fleshing out the details.

    Thanks.
