TF Ongoing issue 22 cover B by markerguru TF Ongoing issue 22 cover B by markerguru
so i know that this image has already been shown off, 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 :D
i love all the little details he added in the colours for this image. for example the M on megatron's head. he made that look like energon is flowing through meg's body. we get that even with the tiny sections right behind meg's head. the detail in the eye, and the overall colour choices were great. i love the background colours. it has a regal feel to it. makes me feel like you know he's a leader :)
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 :D
so this is cover B to issue 22 of transformers ongoing.
this book should be out on the 13th of 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.

When I see art pieces like this I always ask myself "Why they couldn't have made the Transformers look like this for the live action movies." Love this

No. Not really. It looks nothing like him.
Plus, y'know, it's the cover for a G1-based comic series.

Every time I look into a monitor....my circuits sizzle. Usually cause I see another amazing peice of artwork with lines by you and color by that flashing tongue waving bearded guy. Lineart....gorgeous. Color ...pristine. From the little scuffs, scratches to the lighting effects or the subtle ways the faction insignias have been incorporated into both the leaders faces just blows me away. Guys like You, Guido , Casey and EJ ....with some of the colorists I have seen like Espen , Joana and Josh (just to name a few on both counts) make this truly the golden age of Transformers comics. My goal in life now is to become a billionaire so i can lock you guys in a complex with 500 animators and make a new G1 cartoon series with IDW caliber artwork. You both made my stalker list.

Of that, I have no doubt. I seen it and since I have new glasses I almost shed a tear looking at all of the detailing! This is *ahem* bad ass in all of the positive ways I can think! Again, bravo to you both for this awesomeness! You never cease to amaze me!

As the first of the four covers, I can see a lot more concentration in my colors here :I

Line art is bitchin', man; that's always the case though :3
