TF MTMTE 07 cover colors by markerguru TF MTMTE 07 cover colors by markerguru
so here we have the colored version of the cover to issue 7.
again, it features a headshot of the leader of the DJD (Decepticon Justice Devision) i can't tell you his name yet. you'll have to wait a while for that.
this was the only cover that i was very specific with Josh about the feeling i was going for
i wanted the cover to basically be a monochromatic coover color wise. it would help keep some of this character still a secret to a degree.
the idea was something a remember from a couple anime's i had watched where just after or during a bright lightening strick, all the color would be saturated out, and you were left with a very bright highlight and a similar over all color. i thought that was a neat idea.
i love the way it turned out
Josh is always amazing when he works with me. i wish we could work on more things together :)
man, his eye keep staring at me. they like burning into my soul ;p
enjoy

lineart :iconmarkerguru: that be me :p
colors :icondyemooch: he bragged about all the great food he got to eat when he was at botcon. made me sad ;p jokes

The DJD should have their own comic. It would be cool.

Tarn.

I fell in love with Transformers because of the fanwork, and it is because of things like this and what it has inspired that I and still here two years on. Few Bots or Cons have caught my attention past my first loves of Optimus and Megatron but Tarn and the rest of the DJD have managed to steal the lime light and then I find this.

Just incredible, wonderful work.

What an amazing picture! Just looking at this guy puts a chill up my spine! The fact that his face resembles the decepticon insignia makes it even more terrifying. :o (Eek)

One of my favorite TF comic cover when it was revealed online. I would call him The Last Decepticon before his name/codename/alias was revealed in the comics.

Hey Markerguru.....I wonder if you would consider putting this one up as a poster, `cause this is seriously the best Con pic I have ever set my eyes on. Your work on the issue of MTMTE featuring this cover is absolutely gorgeous. Loved the characters but none more than Tarn here. Is this in fact his true face or is it a mask he wears? Just wondering. As always...youŽre the best :sun:

Ok, thanks for the reply....Would it be okay with you if I brought the image to a graphic shop and had it made a poster? Just for me, that is. It is rather expensive but I really want to enjoy it full size, The pic is so beautiful and would look so good on my wall. I want your permission first, though ;)

i can't give you permission to do that. i created the image, but it is now technically owned by IDW and Hasbro. i can't say for anyone to just take it and make posters out of it. sorry. i know you like the image, but i can't help you unless IDW starts making posters out of the image to sell

I just read MTMTE 7 yesterday. I've been waiting for that issue like crazy and now I FINALLY HAVE IT. So, what I wanted to say is WOW. Your art has always been one of my favourites but the work you did with this 'Con is absolutely AMAZING. He redefines the word BADASS, fraggit!! You managed to make me not even whine about the lack of Sunstreaker in this issue, and that's saying a lot! XDDDD

So, yeah. Congratulations for an amazing job, like you always do!

OMG....this has to be the ultimate Decepticon picture. I have to admit that I had sworn never to let a copy of the MTMTE series enter my house, since I absolutely hate Hot Rod. And what happens? You had to go and make the cover, that, as a Decepticon only! fan that has me revoke that decision. It is totally mind-blowing. You, Sir, are the only one who could have managed this! I have said so before and IŽll say it again....You have no equal when it comes to TF art. Thank you so much for this one....it actually made me squeal :omfg:

OMG...This piece have to be THE ULTIMATE Decepticon picture. It totally blew me away. I have to admit I have stayed clear of the MTMTE series, because I absolutely hate HotRod. The only thing that could made me invest in a copy was this actual cover. You, Sir, are simply incredible. IŽve said so before and IŽll said it again: there is no one above above you when it comes to TF art. So thank you for this one, as a Decep fan it actually made me squeal :omfg:

He has more detailing under his left eye... maybe he is disfigured or with battle damage and is using the Decepticon emblem as a mask?

I wonder if he will turn out to actually be a pretty decent guy who just happens to eviscerate dissenters for a living, just to confuse everyone. ;)

I saw this at BotCon on the projection screen and oohed and aaahhed over it there. So pretty!
