TF Ongoing 23 cover lineart by markerguru TF Ongoing 23 cover lineart by markerguru
so i know this art was shown off a while ago back at the Wondercon IDW transformers presentation. i thought i'd show it off here now since to hype up the release of issue 23 and the Chaos story arc :)
so these are the lineart for covers A and B of issue 23 of transformers ongoing. i think this will also be the incentive cover showing the lineart together to form a wraparound cover.
the two cover almost join up fairly well. the only problem i had is that my scanner cropped a tiny part of the image, so that's why i have a tiny gap in the middle. i really wish it didn't do that, but it happens i guess.
so one covers shows optimus prime from the the ongoing series and the other one shows him from the past before the great war.
i had a lot of fun with these covers, and after i saw them coloured by Josh :icondyemooch: they are now easily some of the favourite things i've done for transformers.
well issue 23 hits shelves in August. i hope you enjoy the book.
James Roberts really makes a great story that was so much fun to draw. and i have to also thank Joana Lafuente for her work on the colours. i know it must not have been easy for her with some of my lineart. :)
anyways, back to drawing for me
enjoy

As I told :icondyemooch: on his colored version of the left half of this picture, this has to be one of the sexiest pictures of Optimus I've ever seen. Any chance we'll get to see the colored version spliced together like this? Optimus and/or Megatron's?

Yeah, poor Prime doesn't look quite as spiffy as ol' Megsie does, but a lot of that is just the fact that Megs has stuff up behind his head, and Prime doesn't.
Pretty, pretty, pretty work. As always.

Haha; thanks to having the most unchanged presence(physically- to a degree) in the comics, this one lines up very nicely!
Like I said on the Megatron covers, these are slick, Milne. : )
