Thats right folks! Geoff Senior is back! [for a cover...but hey! the important thing is he's back!]
So anyways, this was shown off at Botcon this last weekend [photos of it have cropped up here and there on the web] and I figured i'd give you guys a little clearer look
This cover was truly momentous for me. Geoff Senior is hands down my favorite artist to ever draw Transformers. EVAR. and he's been a huge inspiration/influence on my own drawing style as well
So its a pretty big deal to me being able to color this cover!
After getting it i pondered ever so briefly about tackling it just about how i would any other piece of TF art i do but just felt that going that route wouldnt feel right. I had to go old school. So I busted out my 80s Marvel/DC color palettes i've run across online and colored this bad boy up. [and that yellow background! totally helps sell the feel i wanted for this too. Its so 80s xD]
So anyways! Thats my story! This is our cover! And I hope you guys all check out Regeneration One when it hits [Free comic book day is when the "first" book comes out. Nab that up and get yourself up to speed for the proper release!]
Special TFRG1 #82 "retro" cover* for the IDW's "Dinobots month".
Since it has been publicly revealed at the Botcon IDW's panel (and throught various reporting fansites) it should be safe to post it here too.
Fineliners/markers on art board, done on '80 retro style.
More to come!
so this image was shown off at botcon this past weekend so i figured it would be alright to show it off here. hopefully get a better look at it
this is the cover to MTMTE issue 8, and yes it features Grimlock
i guess now we finally get to find out what happened to him since last we saw him which i think was in maximum dinobots?
i had a lot of fun with this cover
it has a batman feel to it, which i did not intend until after i stated placing in the shadows and i thought, why not go pretty heavy on the shadows like in the batman comics i read. this was the result, and i like how it turned out
got to work with Joana on this cover. when we were talking about it, i noticed that this was going to be out first cover together that wasn't part of the movie line. i thought that was pretty cool.
the bots in the foreground don't look to happy. i wonder if they know whats about to happen???
Since IDW showed these covers during their panel at Botcon last weekend, I think there's no problem to show it here!
Do you like Decepticons? Dinobots so here we go!
Interconnected covers pencils for issue #7 of Transformers: More Than Meets the Eyes and Transformers:Robots in Disguise. Those are the incentive covers for the Decepticon and Dinobot month ( July/2012)
Hope you like!
Thought I'd give you guys another exclusive.
I was told this was OK to post online since his image is floating around the web now anyway. This is Sky-Byte's official design for IDW as he's appearing in RID, staring in issue 5.
He's largely based on his original toy, though the transformation is a little different than originally.For example, his shark head now becomes his chest instead of a "faux"-shark face on his chest. And I added painted teeth on his shark face like you'd see on vintage fighter planes.
Basically, his alt-mode is some sort of space shark. Who is to say something that looks like a flying shark couldn't have evolved on some planet somewhere? Makes no less sense that dinosaurs in space, eh?
Rounding out our Artists Alley is six more incredible artists/creators! Each will be avaialble throughout the weekend selling some amazing art work and other great items at BotCon 2012!
Be sure to stop by and see Ken Christiansen, David Willis (of Shortpacked/Recordicons fame), Silas Zee, Tyla Sprouse, Donna Kunz (Puggleformers!) and Simon Furman! You read that last one right, as Simon will be on hand in the Artist Alley selling copies of the following scripts:
*Transformers: War Within -- Age of Wrath #4 (unpublished)
*Transformers: War Within -- Age of Wrath #5 (unpublished), including a bonus FREE outline of issue #6 *Transformers Beast Wars #1 (Dreamwave/unpublished) *Transformers #80 (Marvel US, 1991)
Make sure you take the time to visit every one of the great artists that will be at BotCon 2012!
