PRIME BE WITH YOU... by dovianax PRIME BE WITH YOU... by dovianax
YAY!!! My first digital painting from scratch. Ok, now I can say I've done it, so I don't have to do it ever again. THIS TOOK TOO LONG!!!! Though I must say I like the results.

The return of Optimus Prime was a big deal when I was a kid, and when they announced it I was like "HALLELUJAH!!! HE'S BACK!!!" And when they bring him back in the hate plague 2 parter (28 days latter anyone?) they even gave him a half assed "You've got the Touch" moment with the Matrix, and yeah, half assery and all, I was LOVING it!!! Then after that they did the shitty Headmaster mini series and canceled TF completelly (at least in the States :( )

I've been meaning to do this piece for the longest time, but never actually thought on how to execute it. I was always fascinated with the parallels between Christ and Prime. I won't get into them, but TF fans know what they are, and there are ALLOT! I always wanted to do a piece like the famous depictions of old of resurrected Jesus, having the Matrix of Leadership as the Sacred Heart and even show his Stigmata from his life ending battle with Megatron (can you tell I was raised Catholic? ;p). I didn't battle damage him too much because as the Christ depictions show, he was nice and clean and beautiful, but only showed his death wounds, which in Prime's case his weakness is apparently his side and his grill =p

My wife already warned me that this piece will take over the internet like an outbreak of herpes in the Jersey Shore, and against my better judgment, I won't put a watermark on the piece for respect of those fans of mine who will really dig this. What I do ask for is that you remember little 'ol me when viraling the shit out of this and give me some credit or at least a link.

Thanks... and Prime bless you.

All hail the son of Lord Primus and the Virgin Alpha Trion! ... That doesn't sound right. ... How about, son of a giant cube, or son of some Quintesson? ... Now that last one is just sick. :XD:

Great job :thumbsup:

It is a beautiful artwork and warm colours. I can relate to this image because Optimus Prime, is more than just a character I believe represents more as a savior like our Lord Jesus Christ and I thank you for doing such a wonderful job to make this living icon as a blessing to all us fans. Til All Are One!

As far as joke religions go, Primeism (Autobotism? Optimism?) will be one of the best. Not only there is already a mythology (G1), but believing in giant robots from space coming to save you, is more awesome than FSM and Googleism.

And on the more serious note, yes. Optimus Prime can be seen as mythological archetype of "rebirthing hero".

I have seen him as a type of Christ as well and I think this picture is really beautiful! You do fine digital so I hope this won't be your last!! It does take long in the beginning until you get the feel for the program you are working. I was queen of the computer illiterate until I started digital. My kids have been real angels of mercy helping me out when I go freaky cause i can't figure something out! Practice, practice and more practice. You seem to have a real knack for it. It shows here!

I mean, what is up with people liking Prime to Jesus all the time?! XD Even on E Drama (the encyclopedia spoof site, because DA is a piece of crap that blocks posts whenever this site is mentioned) Jesus Christ filters into Optimus Prime. You people make me lol

Well,it's not really us who have created the Christ parallels between Jesus and Prime. They've always been there, we're just catching on to them.

The same parallels can be attributed to countless other characters, from Superman to the Lion from Narnia to Neo. When portraying the charismatic, self sacrificing archetype of a "chosen one" hero, you'll more often than not use Jesus as a template in one way or another.

Well, it can't be helped. He sacrificed himself to save all sentient life, just as Jesus died on the cross to save us all from sin.

I also heard that Robocop was compared to Jesus.

Though I'm pretty sure there's less thought to it than that - a simplistic joke to show that the character and the man were both awesome.
