TF MTMTE 10 cover colors by markerguru TF MTMTE 10 cover colors by markerguru
saw this online not that long ago, so i thought it would be safe to post it up here :)

this is the cover lineart to issue 10 of Transformers MTMTE 10
this will also be part 2 or the 3 part story called shadowplay.
this image features Chromedome on a hover bike flying up the side of a building. well i love drawing buildings and i decided to have a lot of fun with this image, so i made it a building with a lot of reflective surfaces to it. so not only do you have a really detail background, but you have the reflection of that background also. also little semi side reflections on to parts of the building that jet out a bit. it was a lot of work, but i was very happy with the end result.

now when i handed this over to Josh, i felt a little bad for giving him something with so much to do, but oh man, what a job he did on this. all i mention was that i was thinking that it would be afternoon for the time period of the image, and this is what he sent back. holy crap is this ever good. i love the look of the sun on the reflected surface of the building. his colors just made me very happy :) i really have no words to describe all the awesomeness that he put into this cover. all i know is it makes me a bit sad that we only work on covers together.

oh, the hover bike is a variation on the bike action master prowl has. good job for people on the board who noticed that ;)
issue 10 comes out in October
enjoy

expert work. How do you make a reflection and still make the surface appear solid ?
Reply
:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Professional
that can be a bit tricky. but usually you need to have something that divides up the reflection, like window panels and things like that to make your mind take note that your looking at a reflection. not how the reflection is divided on this image.

Great work - all the old Action Master vehicles could do with this sort of treatment, they're often ignored in fiction.

Also, the signature is a great detail!

A Transformers riding a hover bike? Is that considered sex or masterbation? LOL On a side note, this is epic awesome!

Yes, Josh did a PHENOMENAL job on this. But good on you for having the grand vision in the first place. The thing you do that I love so much is that you're willing to put in the uncounted hours to really get all those details in. Josh made good decisions on what to bring out and what to obscure a little. But without all that foundational work, this would not have nearly the same punch.

Also, I love your little "Cybertronix" signature. It took me a little bit before I saw it, but I got it, finally. :D :nod:

While this is epic i must ask why a transformer would ever need to ride a bike...
Reply
:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Professional
because he has a ground based alt mode and can't fly. so if he wants to fly up a building, he needs something to help get him up there.

I love hearing about artists going that little bit extra, especially in those reflections, usually people would simply mirror the image but to offer three different perspectives on the walls and um side bits is just beautiful.

Not to mention I love the combo of you and :icondyemooch: Your clean lines and his oh so colourful colours always work wonders together.

well with this image, you really couldn't mirror the background since the are on the reflection is the part of the background that gets cut off at the top of the page.
plus, where would the fun in that be ;p

So... have there been a lot of jokes about a robot that turns into a vehicle riding a vehicle yet? I mean, it's hardly unprecedented but it's one of those things that always kind of cracks me up. And that perspective is the sex.

...And the ever-amazing Josh did NOT get lost in all that detail. LOL - I particularly like the subtlety of color in this one - the gold and that slight purple that you get with late afternoon light is just perfect here.
