Optimus Prime 9-10-09

This design journal entry will be about 1980s children's icon Optimus Prime. Optimus Prime is from the Transformers multimedia franchise. Recently, he has appeared in the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Today, I'm going to compare two versions of Optimus Prime: the Classic version and the 2007-2009 Movie version.

Optimus Prime 1980s
2007-2009 Michael Bay Optimus Prime

The 1980s Optimus Prime is more geometric and has less detail, making him simpler for some people to draw than the 2007 version. The 2007 version, on the other hand, is based in live action and, therefore, is more organic and has more detail. He is, however, hard for some people to draw on paper. Both may be slightly different, but both maintain about the same color scheme: blue and red. And they both have the same alternate form: A semi-truck. I may do another Transformers character in a future blog, but I'm not certain if that counts as cheating or not.
