Optimus Prime Cartoon Style Truck Mode
Image by frogDNA
Prime was airbrushed with matt enamels, then clear coated with dullcote lacquer, for a really cartoonish look. I handpainted some of the details on his face and some other small details here and there.
For the ultimate cartoon look, I airbrushed shadows and reflections all over him, using stills from the movie and artwork by Don Figueroa as reference. In fact, if you look at some of the reflections of the truck mode and the trailer, they’re taken straight from the movie! (check the part when Prime rolls over Thrust )
I also removed some parts of his chest, this left the white part visible and made it more G1-ish.
Last but not least, there’s THE TRAILER!
A G1 inspired Prime would never be complete without it!
