    Finally worked out my design for Sentinel Prime (NOTE: without his trailer as additional battle armor). The pose is inspired by an image I found of a statue of Julius Ceasar. Found here.

    I've used Don's War Within background, only then not damaged and a little bit expanded, because that particular place is so vitally linked with him as it's the place he died while fighting Megatron in a sword/shield battle (still waits for LIN to draw that scene - nudge nudge). His pilum was used to take out Megs fusion cannon before he could shoot a particular Autobot who'se name I shall not mention here at this time as the story is still a secret, nor is it that important.

    Done as a design for my personal two volume War Within prequel comic story arc.

    Click on the image for a bigger version! Crits and all very much appreciated!

    nice reference

    I'm glad that you included your reference to the caesar sculpture. It really translated well.
    My only crit would be that the top left "tire" looks a little squashed. I like the OP style shin vents and the "apron"
    Overall it feels very dignified.
    The helmet takes it way back...
    Nice work

    I love the effect there. You've got the ancient warrior of Troy kind of thing going along with giant robots. Pretty freakin good man, in fact, awsome. I can't wait to see this coloured.... and to find out the storyline. :thumbs2:

    But yes, this piece is very nice. There's a colored version of it floating around somewhere that really brings it to life.
