TF TOTF Bumblebee alt cover by markerguru TF TOTF Bumblebee alt cover by markerguru
this was shown off at the idw panel at botcon this past weekend. so i guess i can show it off here.

this is the first issue of the tales of the fallen series which idw is producing this summer. this issue deals with bumblebee and sam.
this is the alt cover for the book. idw wanted a more designed feel for this cover, so this is what i came up with.
i also did the colors for this which was a bit of a treat for me. i'm slowly learning all this stuff which i try to work into the image.

enjoy

These are my favourite of all the IDW covers, I love the slightly Mucha-style design cues.

Are you allowed to use Shia labeouf's likeness for this cover, because it doesn't remind me of him an awful lot. But an excellent cover either way!

i'm not sure, but the last time i was doing the movie books i was told not to use there exact likeness for legal rights. besides, i don't think for a comic i should have to make him look like the actor. its a comic, why not have fun drawing it instead of being bogged down with likeness. as long as it has a few things the same it should be good enough. i prefer style over realistic for comics. if you want realistic, thats what the movie is for.

Oh, interesting! It hints towards Art Nouveau, but you look closer and it's Cybertron hyroglyphs! THIS IS GREAT!

Are you doing the rest of the covers in the TOTF series (Sideswipe, Jetfire, The Fallen, Arcee, Ravage) in the same "designed" style? That would be awesome.

Loving the Art Neuveau style. It's good to see comic book artists bringing fine art influences to their work. and it's good to see you proving that you can add fine arts elements to Transformers.

Adam Hughes and Alfonso Mucha would be proud!!! ;p

Looks awesome! Love the design of it all, and you did a great job on the colors. A little strange how it says "Bumblebee" right under the portrait of Sam though. But that's just nitpicking...

:iconmarkerguru:
markerguru Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2009  Professional
well thats because the story is about bumblebee, and sam is the secondary character.
