There is a rusty truck with faded flame deco going around the TF4 shoot and the idea of a PTSD Prime in hiding after the events of the previous movies appeals to me.

So it probably won’t turn out that way. But whatever, It’s an excuse to draw a rusty sad robot. I have no real hopes beyond maybe getting a few neat toy designs out of it.

Manga Studio, Photoshop.

Great pictured, love the idea. Even soldiers get tired.

I can see this being true, since DOTM was SUPPOSED to have a different ending (Where Prime DOESN'T rip heads off). 
I kind of would like to see a "sad" Optimus, because holy crap. That guy has had A LOT happen to him and he's got feelings too. 
Nice gritty picture. :)

I like the idea of a PTSD Prme, it'll make his glorious return to ripping off people's faces all the more better.

I was more thinking it would explain said face ripping and a lot of the emotional coldness of the finale of DOTM. Optimus is a wreck.

His face-ripping does have slight justification though, his and the autobots job now was to protect humanity, having to see all of the casualties in chicago must have crossed a line in optimus' mercy, added on by sentinels betrayal, wouldnt you want to rip some faces off after that?

Wow. This picture has a very strong impact. Seeing Optimus like that makes me feel melancholic.

I coud see this, ( I know that he was upset that his Friend Elita-1 in the move comics was killed but that would not draw him to be this way, it is soooo much war and fighting that took The toll on him. Elita-1 was not with Optimus Prime in the live action films nor the comics, they would of bit if it had not been for her rude and distasful actions toward Optimus.* in refurrence to what davisyuy said to you.*)

But sad thug is Michael Bay made sure that did not happen and messed up the fembots so it is sad *sighs* hope this helps you my friend :3 

Other the that, this is awesome Man keep up the great work! :3 I really love your work!.

~Elita One (yes this is my real name. XD )
