Merry Christmas by ninjaink Merry Christmas by ninjaink
Every knee shall bend... even the mighty Optimus Prime.

I know this might be "offensive" to people, but I've seen stranger things on D.A.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

I don't think this is offensive.... I think it's very sweet and true to what the Bible says definitely!   Great idea and nicely rendered.

This took balls. Very well done. I admire the theme and it's simplicity. So much is said.  Bravo

Ninjaink, I admire how you as one artist can create a cartoon where Calvin is peeing down a newspaper comic page and a politically-incorrect-but-accurate cartoon where a major studio falls for overcombining various minorities all into one protagonist, and you're STILL able to create touching religious imagery like this one. Your skill, creativity, and ability to balance himself precariously on a cultural tightrope is one-in-a-million. Keep up the good work!

Puppetcancer -- It's tough. I try to entertain as wide as net as possible, but on the other hand I have views that 99% of the artist (and entertainment) industry does not support. It's always great to find appreciative fans. Thanks!

I just love this picture.
I recently received a certificate to get some free photo Christmas cards made and was wondering if you’d mind if I use this picture for them. I would include the link on the card so people could get online to see the original if they want to.

No, not offensive. There is something very beautiful and pure in this.

Optimus Prime= Primus's Chosen.

Jesus Christ= God's Chosen.

It's the image of a powerful being, who is himself compassionate, courageous and selfless, watching over and it appears protecting this tiny baby who will grow to be a savior himself. They are very much alike.
