Operating on Optimus by J-Rayner Operating on Optimus by J-Rayner
Perceptor is trying to save Optimus Prime from his fatal wounds, while Kup and Blurr are assisting. Though not a scene in the movie, the idea is based the final moments before OP dies in the 80s movie.

This picture started from an old drawing that I found of Perceptor, Kup and Blurr. It was supposed to be for another painting but the perspective was all wrong and it didn't fit. While looking through a pile of old sketches the other day, I found it and thought it was too good to not do anything with. So I made a few tweaks and gave it a new background.

As always DW styles

Cheers! I was reading a whole lot of DW comics for inspiration and wanted to have a go at some futuristic technology :)

Terrific Jason! And it works great as a prequel to your "Death of a Hero" pic; add a couple more and you'll get a sequence about Perceptor's feelings on Optimus' death.

Thanks!!! Funny you should say that as I'm currently working on another piece in which prime has died and all of the autobots (with Spike) are gathered around him.  Just finished my holidays, so not sure how long that will take to finish though XD

Wow! This just blew me away when I  first saw this!!! =) I love this concept! Perceptor must have hated himself for not being able to save the boss... he certainly was no Ratchet. :c love that background and Kup's pose. =) brings back all the feels from watching the movie. ^^

Anytime, good sir! :wave: 
I wish they included a scene like this in the move before hand, cuz in the movie it looked like Perceptor just scanned him and said "Whelp, you gonna die." XD

Wonderful! Simply wonderful! It really looks like it should fit right into the movie. And maybe I'm easy to impress but HOLY SHIT all those lines!! I applaud your patience and tenacity.

Thanks a lot!!! It turned out to be a lot more work than I had anticipated - mostly the images on the computer screens - but it was worth it in the end :)
I appreciate the comment!
