    Yup. Did a pic of Optimus recently. Don't draw him that much.

    Can't say that I'm pleased with how this came out. Still trying to get the hang of shadows. His torso looks weird and the head especially displeases me. Perhaps if I were to color this one, but I doubt I'll give myself the time to try it. Anyways, enjoy. And please, if you have a brutal critique, then be brutal =) Brutal is good.

    BTW, if you want, you can check it out on deviantART as well. ;)

    Very not bad.

    Great job with the blocked blacks. That's something I've never been able to do. ^_^

    Sweet! It makes me think of what Frank Miller would do if he drew Optimus. I love the contrasting shadows.

    I can see possibly why you'd have an issue with the torso. It's slight imbalanced and asymmetrical BUT this is only an issue because the rest of the image is spot on. There's nothing wrong with how the head looks either. It just needs to be moved slightly it's just a little off in terms of positioning for that angle.

    Overall the finished piece is top notch stuff! I love it! I actually think that what you got here is a cool t-shirt print. And a low cost print at that since there's only really one colour in it, black!

    Looking forward to seeing your next piece!

    *EDIT* I just checked out your deviantart gallery and realised that i'm already watching you!!
