    As cool as giant robots pummeling the crap out of each other is, I like the inbetween moments. Time between battles. And the great thing about Transformers is that while they are giant robots that beat the crap out of each other, they are characters first and formost, with likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc. So I got to thinking, what does Prime do in the quiet time before resting? This is what I came up with.

    That's great! I really like TF characters OUT of battle, gives them a bit more personality. It makes me think of that one pic of the combatacons sitting around cleaning their guns. More leisure art!!

    Heh, at first glance I almost thought Prime was flipping me off. Very nice- he seems to be pondering what he just read (Treasure Island?)

    In a way, it reminds me of "The Thinker" sculpture. It makes you wonder what is going through Prime's head as he's reading a human story. We really don't get very much of this in TF comics, which is a shame. It really brings dimension to characters. There is a place for action, but that gets old after a while, and there must be something else. This would fit the bill. Overall, this piece is very thoughtful. I would like to see you develop it more.

    hehe!! that's awesome, I was thinking the same thing. Also I agree with Skyquake that it would be awesome to see you develop this piece a bit more.

    Very well, let's go to the wheel of adjectives,,,,

    THAT'S INCREDIBLE!!!!

    Seriously though, nice charachter study. It's all well and good to draw them standing tall like a colosus, but introspection makes them more "human".
