TF MTMTE TPB01 cover colors by markerguru TF MTMTE TPB01 cover colors by markerguru
i came across this online, so i figured it would be safe to post it up here
this is the lineart for the cover to the first trade paper back for MTMTE
i wanted to do something very special for the fan of the comic since they have been incredible with their support for the series thus far, so i posed the idea to IDW of doing a new cover for the TPB. for the most part there is no budget for new art for the trades, so i said i'd gladly do this on the house. i just wanted to give a bit more for the trade, to make it even more special in my eyes.
the idea i came up with was a fun image of all the main cast flying towards the viewer. i remember the cover that Nick did for issue 1 which was an homage to DC's justice league international. on that cover ultra magnus was in the place where Batman was, so i decided to have some fun and make ultra magnus in a more batmanish pose. i just had a lot of fun working on this image.
the colors are just lovely, but i expect nothing less from my friend Josh. he always does fantastic work, and i knew that he wanted to do a cell shade style piece for a while now, so i let him go as wild as he wanted with this image.
i hope you enjoy it :)

colors by :icondyemooch: he's so great :) i'm jealous of his coloring skills ;p

Man, you really have evolved the look of Transformers in a very dynamic aesthetic and the colors just bring it out superbly. The character in the lower right (Drift is it?) looks super awesome; VERY nice style and the color choices really bring him out and give him his own personality! This is also a great composition all around! Thanks for sharing.

P.S. - Your sig is funky, man i like it!

I am spending far too much money on this comic series (along with RiD) buying multiple covers but I am definitely going to have to get this! I just hope that my comic store will be bringing this in and if they are, no doubt I will find it waiting for me in my members box as the owner knows how addicted to the cover art I am!

I really do love your designs and I look forward to each issue for the covers just as much as the story.

Very nicely done sir - I'm very much looking forward to picking up the TPB!!! ANd seeing as how this is an homage to the JLA, did you have a hard time figuring out where to put whom as far as placement goes or did you just roll with it (no pun intended lol)
