Galvatron creation by LivioRamondelli Galvatron creation by LivioRamondelli
This commission was a lot of fun. I was asked to depict the moment when Megatron becomes Galvatron in the original Transformers movie ( and one of my favorite
moments!).
This is a tricky thing to show, having both Megatron and Galvatron in the same static shot, since they're essentially the same character. But the idea I had was to show Galvatron almost "shedding" the shell that was Megatron, and having his debris litter the space around him.

Best Transformers Picture I've seen. This perfect moment when Galvatron is born with Unicron filling the background. Epic work of art, Truly. :D

Hand drawn in pencil, scanned, and then done with digital paint in Photoshop!

I was looking thru some of my old favorites and stumbled upon this most awesome Galvatron. It is now my lock screen pic on my iPhone. Absolutely one of the coolest pics of one of my favorite Cons.

Megatron is no more. In his place stand something even more terrifying...and dangerous; GALVITRON!

Tis a VERY cool picture here. I like the lighting, shadow, and shading effects going on here. Also cool to see Megatron's old "shell" being cast off with some recognizable parts; namely his cannon and his chestplace with the Decepticon logo on it.

Nice work. Who cares if IDW Megatron and Galvatron aren't the same person, this still rocks and it's awesome that IDW used it as a cover. It's a shame that the art within the comic wasn't this good.

I see a slightly adjusted version of this is gonna be the HOD #4 cover variant. COOL!

I recall you saying you weren't sure how they might print out... seems like it prints a bit darker than the original? And this version is much more crisp... I'll look at it in store and let you know for sure.

So glad to be seeing some of your stuff in print finally! Besides what I picked up at the con! WOOT!
=D

Yep, a version of this will be the cover for HOD #4. Sometimes it's really just guess work figuring out what it might look like when it's finally on the printed page. Here's hoping it looks as good as it can:)

And thanks for the kind words and support!

ASs they are to me, i looked over different transformer groups and with each one i got more annoyed (don't even want to talk about all that gay shit, no offence,isn;t thrtr a group with only G!?

Anyway i've gothe first issue that came out in dutch and the optimus on the cover is similar in someways wirh your coloured ones, reallt breathtaking.
O sill must take a peek into the rest of your art, but i'm sure i won't be disappointed...

Megatron becoming Galvatron was quite the scene in the animated movie. This work with Megatron's remains makes it more wonderfully dramatic. Outstanding.

I wish they would've kept regular old Megs'. Galvatron was too crazy and a wussy for my tastes...

But yes, lovely commission. Wish I even had an ounce of your skill.

Thanks. I don't mind Galvatron, I think he's definitely the best new character from the G1 film. But I do like Megatron too, so there's the conflict!

Too bad about the crazy that came after the film,

On one hand I like that Galvatron goes a little nuts after the movie..but on the other hand, it does take something away from his character. He's pretty much a badass in the movie.

Even though he was basically Megatron with a new look and name, he was pretty fearsome... and crazy, too. But that's a common trait in a Decepticon.
