TF AOE Optimus Prime: Lonely Winter by MessyArtwok TF AOE Optimus Prime: Lonely Winter by MessyArtwok
This one is TOTALLY a different mind-set from it's counterpart TF AOE Optimus Prime: Into the Fire
Like it's twin, this image is me trying to better myself and my knowledge of Photoshop CS6. I've been working non-stop night and day trying to learn how to paint in Photoshop and I think...I can finally say that I'm starting to get the hang of it. Clapping

Now, This image in some respects is just a little bit more special to me than the previous...because THIS ONE...is a gift.
I made a friend not too long ago who like me is a HUGE Transformers fan~
Out of respect for her family, I wont reveal her full name, however her first name is Kaylee.
Kaylee is 12 years old and has spent a great deal of time in her hospital due to her having Acute lymphocytic leukemia.
In her battle, she has developed a real love and appreciation for Optimus Prime & considers him a kind of surrogate dad since her's is stationed across seas. We've been talking recently and I've been writing her a short story about Optimus...and THIS...is to illustrate her most favorite scene in the story. Kaylee loves snow...she loves everything about winter. And this piece is to remind her to keep fighting so she can continue to see the things she loves and finds to be the most beautiful.
Love you Kaylee. <3

Well...either I have a terrible internet connection with where I'm at and can't seem to navigate to the provided link in the description - or - someone has taken down the original image that I had used as a reference for this piece.
Either way, the image used as a reference for this piece was a screen-shot of when Optimus and Cade Yeager where sitting in the ship talking. I liked Optimus' pose in that scene and thought the positioning would work well in this piece.
I gotta tell you though - replicating that image from scratch took FOREVER. But it was worth it. ^^

Wow that looks very, very good. I am so in love with those snow flakes you have added to your drawing.
And the background is also very nice. A wonderful picture of Optimus Prime you did here :D
I am so excited for the new Transformers Movie this year :la:

I love this picture! But I do hate winter it gets me frozen! Then Rachet would have to make sure that I get warmed up! Optimus would only be the only thing that makes me forget the cold! And he would not like it if I froze outside and......

Rebecca, stop making me um.... turn red? Is that right? Um, I think I need a dictionary for this or Google.

She's quite a trooper. She's that kind of kid that everyone could love.
Honestly, she's the best kind of optimistic person...in some ways...she like a little female Optimus Prime herself. :D
