Sentinel Prime by Raikoh-illust Sentinel Prime by Raikoh-illust
Sentinel Prime hails from an older time, when Cybertron was the galaxy's crown jewel, and the Transformer race was full of promise and potential. The only known remaining Prime, he personified what a leader should be: wise, compassionate, and a more than worthy warrior. Revered by both Autobot and Decepticon, few would dare stand against his shield and Primax Blade.

But when Sentinel was presumably lost forever on board the Ark, Optimus Prime, his hand-picked successor, was left to fill his void. The loss of Sentinel signaled the end of Cybertron's golden age, and the planet spiraled deeper into war. Some who recall Sentinel's reign bitterly remember when Transformers were masters of their fate, rather than scattered to the stars and living as exiles.

If Megatron had a dark past, Sentinel must've had one too, resulting in a low self-esteem and left him vulnerable to loosing all confidence, willing to resort to ttreason to save his homeland.

In G1, he was supposedly a construction worker in his early days. Like Megatron, he must've been a slave labourer, later transitioning to another bleak and grim occupation like serving as an executioner (paralleling Megatron's own days as a Gladiator).

What do you think?

G1 and the movies were different universes. In this one, the war brooke much morale making Optimus more violent and Sentinel insanely desperate. I don't agree for Optimus' actions at the end but I understand. He lost all trust in the closest family he had. Good Painting though.

Well, I barely know anything about G1, but that does sound believable as to what Sentinel was like in the the past.

He killed Ironhide in cold blood, even after he was no longer a threat to his plan to betray the Autobots.

I hate him more than any of the Decepticons.

This is really awesome!! I didn't really notice until looking closely at this picture that he sort of looks like Leonard Nimoy (who did the voice talent). Yet it suits him. Thanks for the back history on Sentinel Prime. I didn't realize this.

You notice how much like Leonard Nimoy he looks without his helmet? It's the nose.

You really, really managed to capture his essence in this picture. He looks stern and condescending, and as a human it makes me feel more than a little uncomfortable.

Yeah, I thought he looked like Mr Nimoy too, and I liked how when he spoke, he sometimes sounded a lot like Galvatron.
