IDW Publishing Transformers MTMTE #43 Cyclonus Cover Design Process by Alex Milne

Via a notification from fellow Seibertron.com user SW's Silverhammer, we have a full reveal of the linework by Alex Milne, plus the coloured version by Josh Perez, for the recently revealed July cover for More Than Meets the Eye, featuring Cyclonus's holomatter avatar and their robot self side by side. Check out below the two images, plus Milne's insight in the creation process of the character!


So this was shown off today so I figured I’d show it off here and give a little insight into what I was going for with this cover.

With the design for the holo avatar for Cyclonus, I knew that James wanted a female Victorian school teacher look. I looked over a lot of reference image to find out what what the clothing would look like. This outfit is based off a old photo I found online with a few adjustments to it in with the character.
With the hair style I wanted to have something to do do with Cyclnous. So I gave her 2 long spikes of hair that shoot up to represent the horn’s on his helmet. The pendant is represents a modified look for his altmode. I didn’t just want to draw his altmode for the pendant, so I just gave it elements of his altmode.
For the colours I had a nice chat with Josh Perez about what I was looking for and he did an superb job of getting the look I wanted. That man has talent and I’m lucky to work with him, even if it’s only for covers.
I knew from the time James talked about what he thought the holo avatar was going to look like, I knew I wanted the eyes to be red. This was a big deal for me. When I was thinking about the red eyes my mind wondered to Full Metal Alchemist and the character of Scar and his people the Ishbalan’s and thought that’s how I want the holo avatar to look. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea of someone from the Middle East or India to be the holo avatar. I thought about the episode of the original Star Trek when Khan was introduced and information on and his culture making some of the best warriors and that had Cyclonus down perfectly.
For the outfit, I knew I just wanted a lot of his robot colours in the outfit, just keeping the long skirt black. She’s holding a blackboard pointer or whatever those things are called.
I think the only thing that will be a problem is redrawing her in many panels since the out fit is very detailed, but when have I ever not steer away from detail ;p

Enjoy :D

With the announcement made at the Q1 earnings conference by Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner, we now have full confirmation about the fifth instalment in the Transformers live-action movie series, due some time in 2017. What also seems to be confirmed now, by Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore at CinemaCon Las Vegas, that director Michael Bay is 'at work' on the movie too - whether that means as director is yet to be fully clarified, though he is involved in multiple Paramount projects, in different roles, before this one. Check out the relevant section of the Deadline reporting below!

Par's Vice Chairman Rob Moore, who said to bear with him because he wasn’t a “morning person” and was instead used to his traditional Monday night slot, highlighted several upcoming sequels and reboots, including another Paranormal Activity for Fall, as well as a reboot of the horror franchise, Rings for November 13th. In between for Halloween will be the original horror comedy A Scout’s Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse which he said the studio was particularly jazzed about because of the title which got laughs from the exhibitors.

He also promised the theater owners that Michael Bay was hard at work developing a fifth Transformers movie since the first four have made an astounding $3.7 worldwide, music to the ears of this crowd which is ALL about box office. But first Bay is directing Thirteen Hours, a war movie set around a daring rescue mission in Benghazi that is already set for release on Martin Luther King weekend next January. Bay’s also producing a sequel to last summer’s successful ($485 million worldwide) reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise, Ninja Turtles II, set for June 3, 2016.

Via a notification from fellow Seibertronian robotmel, we have an interview conducted by IDW senior editor John Barber, also writer for The Transformers, with Georgia Ball, the new writer for the new series Transformers: Robots in Disguise! Check out some highlights below, and read the full piece here.

Transformers News: IDW Transformers: Robots in Disguise Writers John Barber and Georgia Ball in Conversation


JB: What was your entry into the world of Transformers—as a fan, I mean? Do you have a favorite version of Transformers from over the years?

GB: I was parked in front of every episode of Transformers G1 in the 1980s but I couldn’t convince my mother to buy me any of the toys. She was a huge toy collector and had no problem showering me with Star Wars figures but Transformers just didn’t speak to her. After tons of pathetic begging she bought me one: Topspin, a Jumpstarter who sort-of-kind-of popped onto his feet when you pulled him backwards.

GB: I missed out when the movie was in theaters due to the same lack of parental interest—I saw it years later on TV and turned it off when Starscream died, because without Starscream around I just didn’t see the point. I returned to Transformers with Transformers: Prime, then jumped into the comics and bought my own toys, although my daughter’s plan to “share” the Bumblebee I got for my birthday isn’t working out in my favor. Now if only someone would take nine boxes of Star Wars figures off my hands.

JB: This new TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE comic is based on the all-new hit tv series airing on Cartoon Network. But this comic isn’t an adaptation—it’s all-new stories set in that world, but with… well, without giving anything away, some old friends you’re only going to see in the comic, right?

GB: The stories tie into the continuity the show shares with Transformers Prime and what happens in the cartoon will have consequences in the comic. But the comic will also feature new villains and explore different themes. There will be squabbles and there will be punching, but the first arc weaves in an element of mystery and betrayal. Bumblebee has to put the pieces together and he may not get them in the right order. I like resolving subplots in one or two issues within the context of a longer ongoing story, I’m not a fan of ending an issue without getting somewhere.

[...]

JB: What do you think of TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE artist Priscilla Tramontano’s work? Have you two had a chance to collaborate much yet?

GB: This will be my first time working with Priscilla, who I was familiar with mainly for her color work in the comics. I love the somewhat organic feel she brings to the characters that lets them act out their emotions, she’s the perfect choice.

JB: Any other messages for Transformers fans out there?

GB: Transformers Robots in Disguise is accessible to new readers and is all about action and fun. Plus Autobots punching weird Decepticons in the face.

We have some more information about the direction that the upcoming IDW Publishing Transformers: Robots in Disguise comics series will be taking with John Barber and Georgia Ball on writing duties, and Priscilla Tramontano on art, courtesy of ComicBookResources. Check out the two covers for issue #1 by Tramontano and Travis Sengaus/Josh Burcham, too, below, read the whole piece here and some snippets as follows!

The latest "Transformers" animated series debuted last month on Cartoon Network, "Transformers: Robots in Disguise." Longtime Transformers license-holder IDW Publishing isn't waiting long to capitalize on the show, with a "Robots in Disguise" #0 issue available on Free Comic Book Day (May 2), and a ongoing series set to debut in July. CBR has the exclusive first details on the ongoing, which will be written by Transformers newcomer Georgia Ball and illustrated by Priscilla Tramontano.

IDW makes the distinction that while the comic series is based on the "Robots in Disguise" TV show, it's not an adaptation of the same stories. "The stories tie into the continuity the show shares with 'Transformers Prime' and what happens in the cartoon will have consequences in the comic," Ball said in a statement to CBR. "But the comic will also feature new villains and explore different themes. There will be squabbles and there will be punching, but the first arc weaves in an element of mystery and betrayal. Bumblebee has to put the pieces together and he may not get them in the right order. I like resolving subplots in one or two issues within the context of a longer ongoing story, I’m not a fan of ending an issue without getting somewhere."
