OK seriously, this is the best way to not only pay tribute to the old G1 Transformers that I grew up with and grew to love, but is also a totally amazing way to revamp it and keep it fresh.
They say when re-making a movie or covering a song, you need to be able to add something to it, make it your own and make it better. (The re-make of Psycho is an example of how NOT to re-make a movie...) and Sean Galloway here has TOTALLY done a proper re-make of the Hero Optimus Prime!
The sense of weight, and action is beautifully layed out and the colours, while keeping true to the original, have a nice soft effect...altho he IS missing the Autobot insignia...
Seriously one of your finer works, my friend...wouldn't mind see you pull off StarScream in the same way!
What do you think?

This is awesome. Why weren't you hired to redesign the Transformers? The new animated series is uuuglyyy!
Mobius-One Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2009
Amazing! At least he still has his Energon Axe.
shift244 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2009
Niiiiice! I feel that the feet area seems a little... void... but then, perhaps it's better left that way. It's really a great redesign, leaves much of the original and is so easy on the eyes. Add in the Autobot insignia and Prime is as great as it gets.

Can I make a request for Soundwave with a couple of his cassettes?

Ah, but what did he forget?
His blaster? His axe? His trailer?

Anyway, I have to say, I love this design.
This would totally work for a new series now that Animated is over.

Sean! I can't believe I missed this one. I do like the new TFanimated style, but this is perfect. I want to see this design for Optimus animated man. Kudos!

Autobots...Transform and Roll Out! I just love that saying!
jpox Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2008
Awesome re-design!
Anagorrax Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2008
I gotta say this is awesome, probably my favourite redesign of Prime. I'm a BIG BIG fan ofthe original designs and most of the time I don;t like to see the Bots altered too much but this is great, its updated but still retains the classic feel of Prime, its sleek yet powerful. Great stuff :D
RockoTheTaco Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2008
This would have been a fantastic design for Transformers: Animated. It's sleek and simple while retaining all the badassery that Optimus needs!
shadow-man Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2008
indefinably better then the one in the new transformers cartoon series they have going on cartoon network yours puts that one to shame.
Cerulean452 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2008

splendidriver Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Wow, Optimus Prime, cool, I love your style, show me something how to do it? Don't like the color so much but ok, wonderful. I wonder how he transform into a truck? :)), just kidding, anyway, Best Eva!!!
cheeks-74 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2007   General Artist
haha it's ok. i should take into consideration fofr their transformations, but i don't unfortunately.

but thank you!
MrRobot Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2007
meh, hes a lame actor anyways... besides Optimus Prime could either forget him or forget he's holding him and crush him in his hand. Those two were bound to happen.
bonusparts Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow! This Optimus is so fluid - you can almost see him running. I love your clean, simplified style.
ikemaster Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2007

All those million years... No wonder the dudes going a bit senile.

After all he forgets his trailer all over the place. XD

:XD: Usually, with me it's, if I feel like I forgot something, I haven't, and when I don't feel like I've forgotten anything, I've forgotten the most important thing :XD:

Sea-Wolf88 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
no probs ^^ actually, its just since i saw the awesome trailer for the Transformers film that i got curious - i remember watching the cartoon, but i'd just forgotten about it over the years. 'forgot the characters and the story and everything.
^^ ive been doing my research and now im just addicted again. YAY for 80s nostalgia!

sorry, i'll leave you alone.
Stay Frosty!

I don't know why but, some how the colors make me unsure.
The Autobot looks well, I think it looks awesome, you did a great job, especially with the line art.
All that's really missing to me is a bigger robot effect, ah yes, I got it.

I love the design, I love the colors, just needs to look shinier.
Or it could be a little rusty, but that's too real for cartoons.
But, in other words, again, awesome, just... plain awesome.

Truly a fave to remember.

9 out of 10, 4 out of 5, an almost perfect design.

Okay, it's a 5 out of 5, 10 out of 10. I've been looking at too much CGI.
Kuritarou Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2007
You portrayal of him is way beyond "doing him justice." Awesome, Sean!
