Prime Relaxing by The-Starhorse Prime Relaxing by The-Starhorse
:icontheblackpanther: won the 200k kiriban screen capture, and wanted to see Prime relaxing after a long day. This immediately popped into my head, since I see Prime as being sort of like a persecuted dad who has to retreat out into the back yard where the kids can't find him if he wants any peace and quiet. He brings some treats with him, and the old black-and-white TV, since the kids have commandeered all the good electronics. ;) I think if he were human, poor Op here would be wearing some form of plaid shorts, black socks and sandals.

Oh, and to answer the inevitable question: retractable battle mask.

Congrats again to :icontheblackpanther: for winning! This was a fun request. :)

Watercolor + ink on Aquabee

So this is the real reason Primes don't party! They just chill out and destress.

The T.v is perched on his foot. This is the cutest chibi Optimus I have ever seen.

Poor Optimus. He never gets any time to himself. I love your style and the overall atmosphere of the piece.

Poor Prime, never gets any quiet time. I can totally see him having to sneak around like a criminal to get some quiet. (I cant stop staring at how bright and awesome that grass is)

I love this XD. Nice to see Optimus getting a little R&R, being Leader of the Autobots can't be easy. Love the serene atmosphere and Optimus's expression.

So cute. I agree with you about the poor guy, down to the black socks. The more I hear P. Cullen talk about him, the more I think that Prime is like the coolest grandpa ever. It's nice to see him putting his feets up for once.

Oh you just know Optimus has someplace private he can sneak away to for a bit to avoid the *kids* (and Prowl ;) )and just get some good lounging in :D
The TV on his foot is just priceless!
Awesome work as always! :blowkiss:

Tee hee! :giggle: This is just too cute. That must be a pretty big backyard for Prime to be able to get far enough away from everyone to enjoy his snacks without them swarming him. :D He deserves a good break.

He looks so relaxed and comfy here... but we all know his peace is going to be shattered at any moment by a Decepticon attack or Dinobots playing football. Poor guy... :giggle:

You do skies so well. :)
