Addressing the many questions received from fans, IDW Transformers artist Sarah Stone has posted on her Tumblr a step-by-step breakdown of her creative process, specifically about the More than Meets the Eye #33 30th Anniversary cover variant. Find out more here, and check out some mirrored images below!

I get a lot of questions about my process so I thought it’d be cool to break down and talk about some of my steps for illustrating covers! I hope this is helpful or interesting, it’s not quite a tutorial but perhaps it’s a glimpse into my thought process.

Step 1 | Thumbnail. The point here is to do several very fast, small, drawings, so you can’t get hung up on details. Here I’m thinking most about composition and subject. I had four originally and this one was picked to get finished.

Step 2 | Sketch. I draw on top of my thumbnail, nailing down more of the actual details. I fix any proportion isssues but I still try not to waste too much time making final lines, the sketch will go away in the end, so it just needs to be good enough for me.

Stage 9 | Final Lights. I add a harsh white rim light to both of the figures, really pulling them away from the background to finalize the painting.

A while back we posted both the IDW Publishing Transformers comics solicitations and the news about the September cover of Previews taken over by robotic Sarah Stone art - but in further news, the magazine also included a short run through all the Transformers stuff to be expected from November 2014 onwards, including the Angry Birds crossover (with some preview artwork, too). Check it out in full here, and find out more below!

So you like Transformers, you say? You’d vacation to Cybertron if you could afford the space shuttle? Well, then the news we have to report to you this month should be quite tasty.

The truth is that IDW Publishing raises the bar for the walking talking robots with “The Days of Deception” story arc which begins in Transformers #35 (SEP140389), written by John Barber and illustrated by Andrew Griffith (who also renders the issue’s cover).

[...]

But it’s not like us to leave things on a sour note. Otherwise, why get out of bed. We all need some sunshine, and with Transformers: Drift — Empire of Stone #1 (SEP140392) by writer Shane McCarthy and art by Guido Guidi, there is cause for celebration because it’s the return of Drift! All is not lost, despite how the last time we saw Drift had left the Autobots in disgrace. A dark chapter, yes. A downer? Yes. The end of Drift, no! It turns out that the cosmic dungeon master that pulls everyone’s strings isn’t through with Drift. He now has a mission to clean up the darkest corners of the galaxy. Does this mean he’s been assigned to sweeping parking lots and vacant malls? Well, those are details that you’ll have wait for with the roll-out of this four-issue mini-series. One thing we can tell you is that Ratchet is back, and he’s trying to bring Drift home. For what reasons we don’t know, but Ratchet doesn’t seem to be willing to accept “no” for an answer.

Lastly, let us turn your attention to Angry Birds/Transformers #1 (SEP140395) by writer John Barber and artists Marcelo Ferreira and Livio Ramondelli.

This book is proof as to why you shouldn’t take life so seriously, because when you do you close yourself off to insane hijinx that you’ll find in this four-issue mini-series that smashes the Angry Birds and Transformers together to give you a new kind of tasty treat. If you willing to go insane in the membrane, then you’ll let it all hang out and follow along as the Transformers travel to Piggie Island to retrieve the powerful Allspark, which has turned the world of Angry Birds robotic! And with this overhaul of reality we get, of course, the Autobirds and Deceptihogs! How’s that for thinking out of the box? And would you want a crossover any other way?

Roll Call
(Spoiler free-ish)



Synopsis
DECEPTICONS ASSEMBLE! The war for CYBERTRON begins in earnest! MEGATRON brings together the deadliest of his troops for an unbelievable assault on the AUTOBOTS—and the TRANSFORMERS’ world is shaken to the core!

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
Uh oh


Story

So here we are again, in the time before time on Cybertron (and other worlds in the post-Expansion mess-up), effectively a second before the ignition of the the great war that will shape the history of the Transformers as we have pretty much always known them. As envisioned by Chris Metzen and Flint Dille, with input from artist Livio Ramondelli too - issue #2.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
Oh, you're that guy!


The biggest thing to take away from the previous issue, as you might remember, was the slight inconsistencies wit hthe established IDW universe, particularly in the role played by newly rediscovered Omega Supreme. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case once again, as not only is Omega's tale cemented and bolted down to the streets of Iacon, but we also get a look at some peculiar takes on pre-Earth stories, as the Decepticon upper echelon round-up their army, preparing for battle.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
Megatron's Eleven


Above all, the presence of the Predacons on Canis Tor, in their pre-Earth, pre-Stormbringer - but apparently not pre-beast modes. As much as this is a fairly serious continuity blip, it does seem to me that the explanation is simply to feed in to the Combiner Wars stories in which Predaking may or may not feature. A 'recent' continuity if you will, for newer readers. But still.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
A-HA!


Nonetheless, the comic is not a bad read! The narrative choice of a big set up run across the universe beyond Cybertron is a nice touch, and it's plenty of fun to take a look at a number of eventually gestalt teams in their daily life before the war hit. It's a fun romp, with a definite G1 feel to it - but you do need to suspend a bit more than disbelief.

Art

Even with the Predacon glitch, Livio Ramondelli's work on the different planets and environments in which the Decepticons find themselves is plenty of fun, and well variegated. From the light, warm jungle of Canis Tor to the grungy, sulphuric Magmara Nine, Ramondelli paints an enjoyably diverse universe populated by the Cybertronians.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
Yes, even there


And he does so without losing the darkness of tones over at Autobot command (and in the Presidium, for that matter), both in layouts and colouring, with Optimus realising what decisions he must and must not make in order to ensure the survival and defence of what he cares for. And the brooding begins.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
Mopimus Prime


Chris Mowry's lettering, is extremely enjoyable, with some very well placed translucency, and colours mimicking or complementing the artwork beneath and around it. And it's fun, even shrouded in the dangerous terrain of the issue's plot. We've seen most of the covers already (Sarah Stone's variants are here and here), so the thumbnail includes a convention exclusive this time!


Thoughts
Spoilerish ahead

I grinned, almost uncontrollably, throughout the entire first part. Yes, it's silly, yes, it doesn't really do much, and yes, it doesn't fit any more in the IDW continuity, there's plenty of name-dropping and some inconsistencies that don't really hold up to the wider universe, and to the story itself (even within the single issue). But I was grinning so hard it didn't really jar on the first read.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Primacy #2 Review
My face


If you can get past that, the issue is an enjoyable read, preparing us for a very very big conflict about to burst at the seams, and we get some very nice double-page spreads to help us position the scale of all this. A very difficult issue to place, as, by itself, is perfectly fine, and only encounters big issues once it's placed on the bigger picture - but as I said, it's grin-worthy, with no doubt.
