    Hey guys, I've been working on this school project. The theme is "propaganda" so I figured why not do something with Transformers in that vein. I originally wanted to do something in the style of "All Hail Megatron" but couldn't figure out how to do it without out-right copying it. So here's the bulk of my poster, Optimus Prime in the famous Uncle Sam recruitment poster pose:

    And I also did a few other variations.

    Let me know which one(s) you guys like, which would be best for my propaganda poster, and if there's anything you think I should try for a better result(especially if you have some experience with illustrator).

    Oh, and also, I'm looking for some "alien" font to do the text with. Something like "I WANT YOU! Join the Autobots!" I'm trying to find something that just looks cool and alien. I checked the "official" Cybertron languages on the wiki, and they just look to plain.

    Thanks!

    Looks great as is, about the only way you good improve it would be to increase the contrast slightly, and make the shading slightly more dynamic.

    I really like the last, sketchy one. I'd like it better without the gradients, though.

    I'd like to see one with the "cel" type of coloring from G1. Look up GrungeWerX's work to see an example :)
