    My first coloring, 10-20 minutes. Lines by Shizuka.

    The art itself is good, but honestly, I don't see it as Optimus. There isn't anything aside two panels on his chest that even remotely hints it could be an Optimus. The colors don't suggest it, nor does the head design. Like I said, the image is nice, but I wouldn't have ever thought this to be an Optimus Prime.

    It's not supposed to be G1 esqe, the chest is only from the line art. He's just supposed to be an Autobot leader. Imagine a new character, coincidently named Optimus Prime.

    its not bad work overall, but it honestly looks very....feminine? the hips are huge. you can do what you want with it, but i agree that few are going to look at it and see Optimus no matter what story you come up with. sorry.

    The lines are by Shizuka. And let's just pretend his name his Optimus Lime to stop the comparisons. :)

    In these colors, I can see this design as Sentinel Prime.

    I like this. Pretty good for your first coloring. :thumbs2:  I'd definitely like to see you do more.

    The thing is, I don't think you're supposed to look at this and say Optimus. That's the point of making it so different. It's a totally unique take. And it's pretty neat to me. No offense to other artists, but there's a lot of people who make their own designs that just look like a pre-existing Optimus or whatever redrawn somewhat. And while that's not bad, it's nice to see folks like Shizuka try something new.

    Don't get me wrong, it's great, but Shizuka's coloring looks quite a bit more like Optimus.
