TFAnimated Arrival 4 Cover


So November's Solicitations hit the net today over at ComicNewsI [link] and among the title's is IDW's TF:Animated mini-series!

Whats so special about this issue? Well I man-handled them into letting me draw a cover for it! lol

Was REALLY fun getting to be able to do this. I'm a huge TF:Animated fan so i was pretty excited at the opportunity.

This cover ended up being pretty cool too! Well, not just how it looks but how I created it. It started off as a layout sketch on 8.5x11. I was gonna re-draw it on 11x17 but the initial sketch just really lost the angle and feel of the pic. So what i ended up doing was blowing the scan up to 11x17 and digitally tracing my layout sketch xD

So this is an all digital image from the line art to colors. So i'm pretty excited about that! Doesnt look too bad and keeps the clean line feel from the show

Anyways, I hope you guys dig it!

This makes my third [and hopefully not the last] cover that i've fully Illustrated :D

I can tell your work is absolutely amazing and all I saw was this on your profile. Anyways, I love the depth in the starry sky, as well as the interesting perspective on Lockdown's ship and Lockdown himself. Please, this is lovely, keep it up!

argh I can't believe I missed this! ): Only now when I read the Arrival #4 and checked the credits, I digged into your gallery and found it. August was such an evil month for me...

Kudos for you, man -- Lockdown's so badass there! Glad you made it to the covers and sincerely hope won't be the last one! :D
