MTMTE #17 RI Cover colors

WAS REALLY DYING to post this one up and forgot that it was released recently!
Always a joy to work on Nick Roche's stuff. Was given the direction that the room was to be sterile and the mood sad. So I tried my best! This is definitely up there with one of my favorite cover colors at the moment. Really really tried to drown myself in a mood to get this done!

Poor, poor Tailgate...

Positively one of my most favorite covers. Love your coloring on Nick's cover. You've definitely captured the gloomy atmosphere, but it gives off a glimmer of hope for Tailgate as well.

Beautiful composition, and it's only improved by the simple colours.  The soft blue for the majority of it really draws the eye to Tailgate and gets the sadness across.  The blurs, shading and shines off of this are amazing too.  I think this is my favourite cover out of all the ones I've seen from you!

Slow on the favouriting but this is one of the best covers I have ever seen.

this is some fantastic looking color work mate! (Not as happy with the rendering of Tailgate though...) but the color work is top tier.

I usually don't bother with the RI covers but when I saw this up with the announcements I made a point of dragging my butt out of the way to the comic shop so I'd get one the day it got put on the shelves before they ran out (they only had 2 left when I got there :O)

AARRRGGH its so good but I cannot have it as my wallpaper for fear of SLITTING MY BLOODY WRISTS out of sheer sadness.

Little Buddy, NOOOOO!
