Artist Xander over at Flickr has posted some of his works that he's done and sold over the past few years. He started doing mainly Star Wars images but has since moved to other genres to include Transformers. Amongst his collection are images of prints he sold of G1 Optimus Prime, Jazz and Soundwave:

Oh look.... it's the designs for the next cartoon series :mrgreen:

Those might could fit in if they were to make a "Robot Heroes" cartoon. :P

I used to be artistic... I dunno what happened to me =(

TF:A Bulkhead finally goes public with his art!

Not my favorite artistic take on the characters but I'd so buy those if they were on canvas throw pillows or something of that nature.

Or a series of all Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp to hang all together on the wall would look nice. Any group of three really.

Lets all pray that hasbro doesnt see these. You know if they do this will be the next cartoon. Not bad for artwork but i shudder to think of these as a cartoon.

Technically weird wrote:Samurai Jack? Shwiiiiiiiiing?


That's exactly what I was thinking! So where are the alt. modes?
Now that we have had a taste of TFA style (and since it's on its way out the door) why not give Samuari Prime a shot at kicking Megatron, or Akus', butt? Hell we've had over 8 different animated Batman stylings in less than a decade, we might as well mix things up with the Transformers too. I cant wait to see more of this guys drawings.

Offbeat but nifty. I'd like to see how he would do some other characters.

It looks like a kid's collage.

It looks juvenile, but incredibly well-executed. I'm assuming these are on canvas, with paint? The dynamism of the images is excellent. These would make perfect decor for a collector's den, if I had the money to create such a space.

I followed the link to his site and almost hurt myself laughing after seeing his take on the Masters of the Universe characters. This guy is amazingly talented. I think ponycorn has the right idea. A set of Seeker prints would be absolutely awsome and I, for one, would have no qualms about framing a set and hanging them in the living room. I wish I had the money to throw this guys direction to have something commissioned. If you haven't yet jumped over to his site, follow the link. It's totally worth the extra time!

...and I'm still voting for this style as TFA's replacement. :grin:

What does this artist have against thighs?!?!

Interesting idea, but not particularly skillful.

Horrible Artwork. I hate the artwork in the animated series, all most as much as I hate the story line. Way to ruin g1 characters. No i am not just another g1 purist, although its my favorite.

Geez what's with the meladrama? He didn't "ruin" anything...It's just fan-art done in a different style...Nothing wrong with taking different interpretations...It's not like they're going to go back and redo the entire G1 series in this artwork...

You don't have to like it but the narrowmindedness of your post makes you sound EXACTLY like a "another G1 purist"...

Your right that the guy who drew these things didn't ruin G1 but he's not exactly helping it either because this art just plain sucks.

The sad truth is that this "Samuri Jack" style doesn't work well with Transformers, even the art on TF:A only works in Animation it doesn't work as still art.
