Art for Rodimus Prime concept


Art by Pablo Praino :iconoptimuspraino:

Coordination by Franco Villa :iconm3gr1ml0ck:

SoD Project by Peter Istyle :iconi-sithlord:


Concept for "Cybertronian mode" Rodimus Prime, based on the different incarnations of the character.

Rodimus Prime is the pivotal character of  Magnificent Crisis, also available in PDF format, featuring bonus art and secret files: Magnificent Crisis - PDF collected edition</b>

Is there room for Rodimus Prime, in the Seeds Of Deception universe?
According to our writer Franco, the answer is: yes, there is!

Just like Galvatron is not Megatron, Rodimus Prime is not Hot Rod.

Well, not the Hot Rod of this reality.
As Franco explained, the Magnificence-caused events told in Short Stry: Poisoned Chalice bring the multiverse to a state of total chaos, with realities collapsing one on the other.
Before the self-destruction of everything that is, someone (a villain, ironically!) will be able to draw a powerful incarnation of Rodimus Prime in this universe... a mature version of the character, gifted by the Source with a new Matrix item: the Unity Sceptre.
An evolution of the Balance Staff, the Sceptre has a completely different purpose: once the properly order universe is restored, the Sceptre will play a pivotal role in the future events... when Rodimus pits himself and the dawning galactic community versus the hordes of the Dead Universe, led by Galvatron and Nemesis Prime.

Original, full sized art.

This artwork of Rodimus Prime is impressive!

Thank you! Hopefully he will be featured in other episodes after the one which features his genesis.

Glad you approve. Now check out the actual webcomic featuring his arrival: it's "Magnificent Crisis", you can't miss it :)

while this is a great pic, and I like it, i do...

but his arms, hands and lower legs are far too bulky. Especially the arms, how would they even move? Both modes feel squashed/chibi-fied

Thank for the feedback: the Rodimus concept will evolve :)

Thank you! I'm a big fan of Rodimus Prime: when he comes back in this project, he'll have a role worthy of his greatness.

Also, I gave him a cameo in this piece, Mosaic: Nightmare Project, stating that his contribution to the galactic community was pivotal.

What if this Rodimus is somehow connected to this guy [link] ?

I always thought that Rodimus were more than meets the eye, and that there must be a reason for all those ancient Primes looking like him. (Beyond cheap animation).
Also, I think that the Rodimus Prime of SoD comes from the Lost Seasons reality ;)

mmm...that's interesting, I was going to suggest some crossover with the LS =D, so, this must come from some point of the LS's future; maybe from some point after "War Flames"?

He looks very Tonka-esque. XD

Also, I love how the sceptre looks kind of like his ion rifle.
