The lights are on
The developers behind Transformers: War For Cybertron have an interesting task when it comes to their game's creation. Fans of the cartoon have a very specific view of how the robots in disguise look, but various iterations throughout the years have tweaked their image substantially. Many were irked by the Micheal Bay-ified insect-like versions of the Autobots and Decepticons in the recent live action films, as they strayed too far from the G1 originals. High Moon Studios is approaching this task by putting a modern polish on a look that still brings back memories of the cartoon that launched the series into pop culture history.Take a look below at Senior Concept Artist Billy King as he details the most iconic of the Transformers - Optimus Prime.

he looks better now
Why is his gun affixed to his forearm and why does he have wheels? Why doesn't he hoover like the other Autobots prior to coming to Earth?
whatever we were hearing during the video sounded like the title screen, menu screen or possibly background music...
Wow, That was Awesome. I wish I could do that. I dont think 2 years of photoshop is gonna cut it. haha. Tho, I am surprised you don't have whip-lash after that. Nice job! And good music too!
Prime is awesome but I still like Megatron better...lol
Is that a drawing pad using photoshop? If not what type of software is that, its incredible
you said it christian
Optimus Prime rocks he is like a ninja but in robot form
That's good because the new movies are really bad. They ruined Transformers with what they did. This game reforms the Transformers in whole.
If you love this art, check out the art High Moon did for Darkwatch...by far some of the best/coolest concept art around
I've never been a fan of Optimus, but he's looking pretty sweet in this new game.
It really looks hot !!!
Great Artwork here!
