TF Drift issue 1 Guido cover

By dyemooch
Saw the Preview was up over on IDW Publishing's website!
(preview: [link] )
(other books out this week: [link] )

Guido's cover was in the 5-page preview that was up on IDW's website, and I totally forgot that I didn't post it here!
The cover shows Drift- both as himself and as Deadlock, his name from his time as a Decepticon.

Artwork by :iconguidoarts: (Guido Guidi)
Colors by: :icondyemooch: MY PUNK ASS!

I think... this might have been the very image that caught my attention to the Drift series! :eager: I saw this somewhere and was like, " :? WHOA, this dude had an evil past or something?" And the more I looked it up, the more I wanted badly to read it! I got the Hardcover Complete collection. :D

Anyway, I've always loved the colors on this cover! :love: It fascinated me that Drift as "Deadlock" had the darker facial complexion that accented his equally dark demeanor, and the "renewed" good Drift's lighter facial tone is certainly associated with someone who's not evil. Appears more youthful, even. :)

This is a very striking image, and your colors on Mr. Guidi's artwork (and Mr. Milne's in the mini-series) have done TF Drift amazing justice!
Thank you so much for bringing your coloring magic to Transformers!

This is a fantastic cover :D
Could you explain how you get the optics and the lightning to glow? I've been experimenting a bit and I can't figure it out :/
dyemooch's avatar
This particular one was the lightning on a layer set to "outer glow"- most likely a darker orange set to screen or linear dodge.

dyemooch's avatar
Why thank you! I think this cover isn't as impressive as the other covers I've colored for Guido. I still need to get better at what I do D:!
