Finished Summer 2016, Clip Studio Paint & Photoshop.
I drew this to serve as the title page for a TFcon 2016 panel about the Japanese franchises that inspired Transformers.
Optimus Prime vs Gundam! Bumblebee vs Astro Boy! Skyfire vs Roy Fokker's Valkyrie from Macross! Or is that Jetfire?
There is no actual conflict here, of course. Transformers and anime have a symbiotic relationship. This is just for fun. Transformers owes much to the history of anime, and we can all get along!
