Check out Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art by Robert O. Simons and John J. Park!
Transformers 4 had a huge opening weekend and earned over $100 million. While it's had mixed reviews director Michael Bay said he wanted to do something different with the franchise and made the robots "feel different." "I wanted to give them stronger characters," Bay told /Film, "I wanted to focus on just the few robots and give them much more character." To do that he reduced the number of Autobots to four: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Hound, Crosshairs, Drift and Brains. He also focused on a smaller number of Decepticons like Lockdown and Galvatron. Two of the concept artists that helped that "different" look are Robert O. Simons and John J. Park.
Robert O. Simons and John J. Park are professional concept artists who've worked on big budget projects like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Ender's Game (2013) and the game Hawken (2012).
