I have missed Rui here on DA :)

This is one of your first :wow: It's amazing! So many details on Prime! I really love the one taken from the G1 toy!

Menasor looks fantastic as well! This is something to be proud of Rui :hug:

I've been a little busy about college work and some commissions and forgot to submit some my work and fan art, so I'll show some work I made recently in my dA gallery^_^

Really glad to hear glad words from you! I enjoyed drawing TFs in this so much! 
I hope to make many parts I will like in my coming work too as I did for this painting.

Haha, this happens :hug:
You are very popular here, perhaps one day you will have your own handshake event ;) (can I get a special ticket? @.@)

I want to ask one question: Why does this image have a toy Optimus and a cartoon Optimus?
TF-The-Lost-Seasons's avatar
I may give an answer to that Phil; the story this cover was done for, shows Optimus in two years 1986 and 2007, we wanted to make him look slightly different for each time, so both Iohannes (in the interior pages) and Rui (in the cover) used the original G1 toy as the model for the '86 Optimus and the Masterpiece figure for the 2007 one. Even storywise this made sense because Optimus had been rebuilt by the end of the cartoon's third season, and the 2007 parts of this were after that.
