TF Spotlight Megatron RI cover lineart by markerguru TF Spotlight Megatron RI cover lineart by markerguru
well this was a special cover i got the chance to work on. The owner of the comic shop i go to asked me if i was interested in doing a cover for and store exclusive book. this was something that we had talked about many times in the past but there hadn't been a transformers one to do....until now ;p
the owner pitched the idea to me about doing a cover, but was unsure about doing it since he wasn't aware about where the books fit into the main stories. i asked what books he was offered a cover for. he mentioned a G.I.Joe one, then a tf comic about megatron. i was like ok.....then i was like, wait, what, megatron? do you mean spotlight megatron? then i was like OMG i want to do that :D
so after a discussion that day, i came up with some roughs. the owner and i went over them, and then i whipped up the cover. it was a blast to do. i love drawing this design of megatron. i know its not the most loved design, but i do enjoy drawing it. i added the store logo in the bottom cover plus a couple extra decepticons that i knew the owner liked :) it was a joy to work on
so this will be a store exclusive comic. i will have a few copies that people will be able to get from me at the various conventions i will be at, but other then from me, stadiums comics will be the only place you'll be able to get this cover of the book
here is a like to there store [link]
here a link to there facebook for the in store signing i will be doing [link]

well , back to work for me
enjoy :)

Your cover actually turned me around to this version of Megs (my first sighting of it was actually in the trade "chaos theory.")I was glad for a bit of an explanation with the figure packed comic. That said, I only read that once it had been collected as the "Dark Prelude" trade, and while initially wary to the smaller frame Megs was sporting, it didn't bother me after this image.

Nice work!

I actually like this design for Megatron a whole lot. It combines something of ol' Bucket-head with the sleeker armor design of Galvatron, and you incorporated some of the form from his Origins series as well. I also really like the bits of block shading you worked in here; it makes the shapes easy to read, even as detailed as they are, *even* without color. Your enjoyment of this project really shines through!

Tremendous job on the cover especially how eye catching it is besides the amount of details you put in.

I like! I love Megatron's new look. He looks more ominous.
