AG 21 - Zodor, Techgod . Nothing like a dead planet to get in touch with your God... but sometimes it's way too literal! . A lost patrol follows the road to get to camp. They're out of provisions, so only a miracle can save them...
That's when the mighty Zodor, the God of MAOX, appears out of nowhere and blesses his men with renewed strength and stamina!
As the troops stand in adoration, the encounter seems to be too much for a pilot, who dies by sheer awesomeness.
Zodor is an interdimensional technorganic being, his science so far beyond that it looks godlike to mortal eyes.
Though this is but one of the hundreds of zodorian Avatars active at any time in different universes, it's still extremely intelligent and powerful.
The zodorian Universal Translator. This device allows the Avatar to instantly translate itself from a universe to another, cheating the principle of indetermination.
Detail of the legs. Of course the model CAN'T stand on its own, with feet like those. But I find they add to the otherworldly feeling :)
Back shot. Look at those wings, I love them!
Cap O'Grid; Sgt Tourist with a Probinator Stick; Psi-Cmdr Carole D'Henry; AG Synthuman Glade. On the floor, the Nameless Policeman, died decades ago during the viral purge of the planet; Cmdr Ricker, died of awesomeness at the sight of his God.
Believe it or not, this should have been the core of a short comic. I tried several times to get the right pics and lighting for the several times of day, and the right space for the ballons. I suck at it.
Bonus: the 1st page of the original storyboard. I suck at drawing, too.
Addendum: blacklight picture of Zodor hanging from my ceiling. I put it there for good luck.
Note #1: I know Bernardo created him as "Zordor", but I couldn't get past the "zord" part without being reminded of the despicable Power Rangers, hence the "modded" name.
Note #2: part of the design was inspired by an old MOC by the Scott bros. I can't remember which, but when I do, I'll put it here.
