    -UPDATE-

    adding the final lines, before coloring. I changed the sword and added a support strut to his sword/arm.

    Yeah, I just had to try this out on my favorite TF of all time, Powermaster Optimus Prime, also known as Super Ginrai.

    I gave this version of Prime a different Alt mode inspired by another toyline no less :)  And true to the toy the cab is combined with the trailer. The trailer is a tanker type, it just made the most sense to me.

    As for the design of PMOP here, I wanted to make him assymetrical. So I gave him a 'sheild' arm and a regular arm to hold the ginormous sword. The sheild arm can also extend to grapple unwary foes as well. I want to make a 'buster' version sometime... Maybe before the end of the contest. For the colors I'm thinking mostly red and silver, with hints of blue. And I was thinking of using a similar shade of red used for the Thunder Roller reference.

    Some background on this particular iteration of prime:

    In response to the Decepticon's Pretender Initiative a group of humans want to augment the Autobots. To increase reaction time they design a scheme to fuse human components with transformers. All of the tests until now have been failures.

    The humans focus their experiment on a suitable test subject that may promote a higher success rate. They decide on a human that has been exposed to the Allspark as well as the Matrix: Sam Witwicky. Having acquired Sam and Optimus( another ideal candidate) the augmentation forces Optimus back into protoform mode. Were he is provided an alt mode once the powermaster process begins.

    Now Optimus weilds more power than ever, however, Sam has to remain within a 50ft radius of Optimus.

    Thanks for looking, I hope you like it :)

    AND COLORS!

    rough flats anyway :)

    Attaching the pencils and my alt references :) 

    The cab is the Thunder Roller from hot wheels, which looks to be a heavily modified K100, and the tanker Is a toy replica.

    Very nice, but the Final Fantasy sword doesn't really fit. Feels a bit random. Have you thought about maybe movie-fying it a bit, keeping the same general shape and feel but have it fit in more with the movie weapons?

    Thanks for the comments everyone! I really appreciate them :) 

    Ra88- I will go baack and change that, as I was drawing the sword it felt a little out of place, So I'll layer it up and everything. I just have to do it before coloring begins... :)

    This is badass. I love the big clanky wrecking arm on him, nice design work. Good vehicle choice as well.

    Nice. When you change the sword, make the end a lot more angled, sharper looking. I'd use Prime's blades from the films as a primary reference.

    Thanks for the kind words :) 

    I changed the sword and did a couple of minor things. So now its ready to be colored! Hopefully flats will be done tonight. And maybe a sketchy of 'buster' mode.

    A little insight to my thinking around the sword, I imagine it as more of a bludgeoning weapon. So its actually thick for a sword. But with enough force applied it can still 'cut' through any decepticons. So it is actually more of a dirty weapon, less finesse than a sharp blade. Which is how I imagine PMOP's fighting style.

    Love it... but I think there could be more protection for Sam inside since a Decepticon could easily just stab him.
