Transformers Prime

When we started production on this CG animated series over two years ago, we always set our sights on putting together a show that would set a new standard for TV animation quality. If you haven't seen the series, please check it out in HD. The first season is now available on DVD and Blu-ray. I know I may be a little biased, but every aspect of the show, from the writing, voice acting, designs, animation to the soundtrack is so stellar. The show impressed enough in the industry last year to earn two Daytime Emmy awards for outstanding individual achievement in animation for background design (me) and color design (Christophe Vacher).

Anyway here are a couple of early production designs I generated for the first season.

Cybertron after the civil war

The Autobot headquarters. A very complex set that turned out really well. I was hoping that Hasbro would make a toy playset out of this...
