TF MTMTE 35 Cover by markerguru TF MTMTE 35 Cover by markerguru
so this was shown off today, so i feel i can post it up here.
this is my cover to issue 35 of MTMTE
when i got the description of this cover i had to scratch my head for a moment to think what i was going to do.
basically it was a pill of offline rewind style bots at the bottom with a large billboard sign saying "every thing is fine"
so i will admit, i was less then enthused to work on it at the start since i thought the image was a bit more simple then i would like.
then i started remembering some of the x-men covers that Chris Bachalo would do and how much i enjoyed his style of incorporating the title logo's into the background, and thought that i might handle this cover the same way
so this is what i came up with, and i'm pretty happy the way it turned out
also the cover turns out better after they are coloured by Josh Perez.  this is why i enjoy working with him so much. 
enjoy

I gotta admit this one really stands out for me. The letters make it look very clean and simple which I enjoy, but then you look closer and oh my god all the details and ... disturbing parts. Loving it. :love:

Can we just imagine they're recharging after a long and hard day of recording stuff instead of being offline? Pretty please?

You did a wonderful job with the aesthetics and composition, your inspiration source was spot-on too! This covers intrigues me a lot, but that's why I find it so appealing. :D
Perez's colours are kick ass!

I find it awesome, but I feel I can't trust that "everything is fine", I'm afraid ._.

Judging by this and the variant cover featuring what looks like an Adjudicator (from Overlord's origin story), might this be part of Elegant Chaos, the latest trip to the past?

Seems like it could have been an opportunity to have the billboard say "ARE ALL FINE", spoofing the cover of Transformers US #5.

Is it just me or does it seem that the crew of the Lost Light either got planted into Rewind's bodies or at least in a dream sequence? Because somehow their colours seem to remind me of some of the crew on the Lost Light. Could be me though.

Well... this is interesting. Honestly, I love that at the moment I have no idea what it foreshadows/means exactly; that will be fun to find out :meow:

Hear me out on this haunch, maybe Rewind somehow, like the main protagonist of the film 'Lucy', transcended in a way that he can possess the non-living class versions of himself? Just a theory though...

The lettering style is a lot of fun, and I see that you managed to work in a complicated background techno-doodad to keep that nefarious simplicity at bay.  ;-)

A pile of deactivated "Disposable Class" bots under a sign like that? "Noooo.. nothing wrong at all... "

Oh no Crispin Glover has taken over the Transformers comics! Now he'll fill it with his pretentious crap involving sails, nazis and people in blackface!

But in all seriousness this is an awesome comic cover.
