Prime Bust Unfinished by NgBoy Prime Bust Unfinished by NgBoy
Drew this while bored at Tulsa... i figured i might as well continue with my colour experimenting...but....

I just don't think i can continue with this piece... not so sure why, just lost all interest midway through it.

leave it unfinished, could be a museum sculpture. I think this one captured his essence as a leader

I looks nice (though less... "detaily" for you ;)). And I see you didn't get to the eyes... apparently.
Still it's a good drawing.

man this is awesome! I love your tf style for robots and i'm sad to hear you're not finishing this piece. I'm really selective about prime art (cause he's my favorite character) and yours is really good!

Keep up the good work :)

Very very nice. The style looks as if you worked it with pastel chalks. This certainly is a favorite of mine.

Nice Convoy, brother! I really like the angle on his head. And funny how sometimes doodling when you're bored sometimes comes out better than when you try really hard! (at least that happens to me)

Wow, that certainly does have a nice flair of your style, a mix of Pat's and the classic anime version.

If its unfinished...it still looks awesome since it does give off a "memorial or commemorative honor piece." :D

That looks really nice! For some reason I prefer the plain pannels over the ones with an enormus amount of detail on it. I dunno ... I just hate it when people put a shitload of unneeded detail into a place that doesn't need it. Just takes my eyes off the better points of the character ... but then again ... thats just me.

Anyways, for Prime, I really like this piece. The only thing I can complain about is his optics. I always like it when Prime has bright optics, as they match who he is, while here they seem duller. Otherwise, faboo as usual Joe! :D

Lots of love ^_^

Eh, who cares, unfinished pieces I find tend to look cooler anyways cause we can see part of the linework for it. But I reckon all you're missing is the autobot symbol on the shoulder.

Keep it up dude

1.) Those colors make me want to quit, you bastard
2.) You draw the best prime out of the entire DW crew XD
3.) Those colors make me want to quit, you bastard.

SERIOUSLY, man...this is some hardcore kinda awesome shit right here. I like the subtle tech-panels- and G1 anything from you mostly comes out as gold. I'd really hope they put you on G1 sometime down the line. o . o But yeah... I would so like to see you draw the Power Master Prime..but like...the cab Prime, not the combined. I always thought that Prime looked uber bad ass.
You got some fucking skillz, man...some serious fucking skills x_x.
