    As promised. I actually really liked the way it was going. I'm not sure why I never finished it. I think it would have been a pretty cool model.

    Looks pretty good. Still looks kinda fake in the fur department though. Overall though it looks very nice.

    Wow! Very nifty! The overall shagginess of the gorilla parts reminds me of the 2007 King Kong. Primus, did you have Kong in mind when you rendered this?

    Primal without glowing pupils behind the 'glass' of his optics looks wrong to me,though...

    That's awsome looking. The eyes do need something more to reflect Primal better but overall awsome. Revive that!

    WHOA that is totally badass. Image if someone produced a remake of beast wars with that kind of attention to detail, imagine the badassery of that show. I could only dream of such a thing

    Awww! Cuddly Optimus!

    I like that there are glowing machine parts on the interior of the fur.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I may pick it up at some point. Mainly just because I need an adversary for my BW Megatron model and Rhinox isn't really cutting it.

    I think I did use King Kong as a reference for the fur. For the eyes I was pretty much trying to stay similar to the show but since i upgraded the fur i guess i should update the eyes if i go back to this.

    No no! You've got it all wrong! Primal needs to have his fur accentuated with a bump map! None of this "fur" plugin rubbish.

    All kidding aside, I think you've got a marvelous update to Optimus Primal there. The lighting and base colors are spot on. I would love to see what a little wear and tear could do for him texture wise. (or if you want, send me a UV map and I'll play around with it and see what can be done). :D

    I love that. The fur looks outstanding--I'd love to see this finished and staged against a BW Megs w/ lifelike skin.

    Bloody hell, Jeff, that looks terrific! Whilst I agree that you could probably shorten the fur length by just a tiny tad (yep, that's a technical term, folks), the overall effect is excellent, and the model itself looks ace so far. :thumb 

    Would love to see it finished, too, but I know all too well what it's like to have WIPs fall by the wayside for one reason or another (my Classics Deluxe Prime in a G2 stylee, for one)... :cry

    I tried to put a realistic looking skin on BW Megatron but it just didn't look right. I ended up going with a play on the Mainframe colors with a somewhat realistic bitmap.
