TF Destiny_Alliance 01 alt cov by markerguru TF Destiny_Alliance 01 alt cov by markerguru
so now since the first issue of alliance is out in stores i'm going to guess it's alright to post up the alt cover for the book.
i tried something different with this cover. i'm happy with parts of it, but it was interesting to use this style. i think i'll try it again at some point, but not right now.

Your style of crosshatch shading is really cool. When I first picked up the comic I carried it around showing it to everyone saying "Just look at the detail!" I'd ask how long it took... but I kinda don't want to know. :XD:

Every square centimeter is just full of detail. This must have been a time consuming piece.

Apple and I were supposed to meet at the comic store to get the issue with this cover, but she was really late. I bought one while waiting for her and by the time she got there it was discovered that mine was the last one they had. Scowling followed. lD I dig the funky hatching business in the shadows. :]

thanks. i went for something different. i'm no longer happy with it since all i can see now are the mistakes i made, but i guess it means that the next time i do a cover like this i won't make those mistakes again.
yeah, i heard about that. i told her that i have a few copies of that cover that idw gave to me, so she could have one. if i had none that you wanted that cover also, i could have given one to you aswell. better to give them to people who'll read them, then just letting them collect dust on my self.

I think thist style is awesome! While the robots are awesome as usual, I see some improvement in you're drawing of humans. The humans you drew in this picture look MUCH MORE like the actors they are supposed to represent, than in previous drawings. Congratulations.

Just some constructive criticism.

:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2008  Professional
yeah, but that was a mistake on my part when i started to draw them. i remember that i'm not really suppose to draw them looking like the actors since there are actors likeness issues and other things dealing with copyrights. thats why i stick to a cartoon style for the most part.

I LOVE the details within Sam's face. The crosshatching is so delicate that you don't notice it right away, but it really adds some gorgeous texture. :D

I really like how you've improved on human drawing--but poor MeganFoxGirl's neck is kind of wonky. I KNOW I HAVE NO RIGHT TO CRITICIZE :fear: but it looks a little like a goiter. Or perhaps that her chin is attached to her spinal cord. Really, that's the only time I've ever seen something off in your stuff so YAY FIRST TIME.

Oh, and Y HELLO THAR SECTOR 7 GIRL IN SPECS. *stare*

Well, darling, she bears a resemblance to a mutual friend of ours and I find that intriguing. She's also the only person on the entire fucking cover with spectacles, dark or no. Therefore our attention is called to her. XP I hate having to explain my vagueness. It takes all the fun out of being vague.

Wow, there must be a million lines on that one page! I love how super-detailed your work is. I'm guessing those're The Fallen's ominous eyes in the background towards the top? The same eyes that have been on all the packaging for the toys that has been revealed . . .
