Mark Watts is an artist known for many of the original pieces of artwork seen on Transformers Generation 1 toy boxes. He is still active producing artwork of all kinds, working his TableArt Transforming Tables system, and doing commissions. He recently shared a new commission piece with us and since it had a really strong G1 vibe going, we decided to share it along to everyone else. The piece features G1 Devastator fighting his nemesis Omega Supreme – hovering out in space with tons of 80s vibes and laser blasts like you’d see on some original G1 box backs.
The even cooler thing about the piece is it was done using the same methods as the original – hand painted with acrylic and airbrush. So it really is dead on to the original art from our favorite toy line. You can see pics of each step to his process creating this after the break.
After that, head on over to Mark Watts website for some signed prints, to inquire about your own commission, or just check out his catalog of work! – www.markwattsstudios.com
