This is a character study for Autobot Gestalt Raiden. There is a chance that this bot will be appearing in an upcoming Transformers fan comic "Seeds of Deception"... We shall see.
Damn that's wonderful work. Nice to see the character of Raiden get a little more attention, with that Seeds of Deception comic you are doing it will be great seeing him active.
This guy looks awesome! Am i right in saying he's like an autobot version of Bruticus in the way that he is multiple bots combined into one?
Yes he is a combiner. He is actually an obscure G1 transformer from way back in the day. If you look at the progression drawing for this pic, the top image is the actual 80's box art for the toy. My job was to take that image and turn him into a pre-Autobot/Decepticon civil war style (so back on Cybertron), and to conceptualize a cybertronian astedic for the character. It was fun, and I am looking to put this big guy in a two-page spread for a "Seeds of Deception" comic set way in the past. fun, fun.
Thank you sir. I am slammed at work right now, but I could either do the Predicon concept, or start on the two-page spread. What say you?
I'd say that the spread should come first, if you agree. Thanks!
Ok. Again, I'm swamped with work at the moment, so I will be nibbling away in my spare time.
Very cool. Going for a sort of WfC/FoC style right?
