Ol' Optimus Prime by PatrickThornton Ol' Optimus Prime by PatrickThornton
At the time I drew this piece (long before the live-action movies), I had not seen an image of Prime sitting down - he was always in a heroic stance. I wanted to see if I could draw him sitting down, but maintain his presence as a leader.

This Optimus Prime cover was first created in 2001 for Antarctic Press' "CYBERTRONIAN", then later published in Image's "GENESIS - The Art of Transformers"

Just wanted to let you know I used your image to create a evil optimus, I wanted your permission but you never answered. I put a link to it below. And don't worry I put a link to your page and the original in the description.

Wow these metals are great. Hah the classic rifle is a nice touch. 
You nailed the perspective and I love the details through the wind shields. 
Excellent.
