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
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
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.
