Optimus Prime: Low Poly

Growing up, I always had an affinity towards Transformers. A huge portion of my childhood was comprised of Michael Bay’s live action movies – way too much that I barely gave myself time to appreciate the iteration of the franchise that started it all, way back in ’86: Generation One. Here’s my take on the G1 Optimus Prime, making use of simple solid geometry in Blender 2.8. Rendered in EEVEE. Shading was done with stage 1 Principal BSDF shaders; plain solid fills in simple terms.



Optimus Prime, known in Japan as Convoy, is a fictional character created by the Transformers franchise. He is a Cybertronian, a fictional extraterrestrial species of sentient self-configuring modular robotic lifeforms, a synergistic blend of biological evolution and technological engineering.
