TF Ongoing issue 22 cover A by markerguru TF Ongoing issue 22 cover A by markerguru
looks like this cover is now online :D
so i know that this image has already been shown off by Josh, but i just have to show it off here too.
i can't tell you how happy i was when i saw the colours for this image.
i had the good fortune of being able to work with my long time friend and colourist Josh Perez on this cover, and man did he ever deliver
i love all the little details he added in the colours for this image.
the man has some crazy skills :D
at first when i was starting these covers i had a lot of different cover ideas for the editors to choose from plus a few that they had pitched to me. i wasn't to excited when they picked this idea, but then it turned out differently then i thought it would. in the end i really like how it turned out, and it's now some of my favourite work i've done for IDW
so this is cover A to issue 22 of transformers ongoing.
this book should be out sometime in July.
so if your interested in finding out more about how megatron became the bot we know today, i suggest swing by your local comic shop and take a look when this book hits the stands.

Well, for me is a real treasure. I live in the 'Middle of Nowhere' country (Romania), and here there aren't comic shops or manga shops at all. So that's the thing with the downloading. ^^;

Yes, Don is a brilliant artist, no one can think different, but to me, you are the top dog. I have thought so ever since I read "Reign of Starscream" when it was new. There is something about your work that simply continues to blow me away...your Mechs are graceful and so very expressive, your sense of detail is stunning-no matter how much action is going on in a pic, it never looks cluttered. I have named you my favorite artist for a reason, you know :D All of your gallery could easily be placed under my faves, but people should go to your own gallery to see them, so Iīve only picked one- my fave of them all-black Megatron. I have looked in here for a sketch you once did of Movie-Thundercracker..head, vehicle form and full body. I still absolutely love that one.
I enjoy the TF comics immensely but when I see itīs you who have created the cover I always feel a buzz, and when I discover that you have drawn the comic itself, itīs even better. #22 is one of the best comics I have read in a long,long time...Megsy and Prime talking like that 8Pī.And the way you interpret their expressions...I can only imagine how difficult it must be with Prime, with that facemask of his, and yet you draw it almost like it isnīt there, his eyes and body language does the rest. Encore, Mr Milne. I admire your work, to me you are the best! Thank you for taking the time to replying, itīs not often one gets to speak to their idol :sun:

Great! Love the origin Megatron (and mostly all other Megatrons).
But this is cover B and I bought the wrong one because I was confused :frustrated:.

Now I have to buy both (if I ever get it - REALLY difficult in Germany - always have to search and buy in UK).
And: Your art is awesome. Meg-Origin is still the comic I like most.

I like the design of the young Megatron. I have read Megatron Origin and the use of construction stripes for a pit worker was a good idea !

Amazing work.

I have no words of kudos that haven't already been said. I really want to get my hands on this series.
I've gotten back into the comics but haven't been able to get my hands on one yet. small town with no real comics besides Archie.
every time i see another piece on your dA, it keeps me interested and reminds me to find a comic shop when i hit up the city.

I already squeebled all over Josh about his colors, but I gotta tell you too -- this cover is amazing. I've loved every one of these you've done. The detailing is just GORGEOUS.
I hope you enjoyed returning to your Megs Origin design. It is my favorite ever, hands down.

I just saw a few preview pages from this series, and it totally gave me the shot in the arm to get back into the comics again. So KUDOES ON YOUDOES. It looks... amazing just doesn't even come close. And going back to the beginning time period is always one of my favorite things to read. Really looking forward to it.

I love the design on this one! I don't know why, but I like this one a little better than the other cover...Maybe it's because of all the cuts and scrapes this one has? To me it makes him look a stronger leader. I'm off to find this issue now xD

hello there~
that pic's amazing, in color and lineart!

i have a question about the outlines, maybe you can help me a bit?
what's the brain-work behind drawing mechanic joints like those on megatron's neck or shoulder in this drawing?
do you have a concept in mind how they might work/move or do you just draw what looks right and comes to your mind at the moment you're designing?
because i find myself unable to draw decent mechanic joints that look like they could actually work...

:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Professional
usually i have an idea of how the joints work, then i will draw that. most of the time for the neck area i know that the neck has to rotate, but also needs hydraulics to let the head move up and down, so thats what the supports are on the neck. but in the simplest form, just think about how the human body moves and try to think what motion each movement creates, then apply that to making the mechanics. i don't know if that helps you, but it's the best i can think of at the moment.
