TF MTMTE 10 cover lineart

saw this online not that long ago, so i thought it would be safe to post it up here :)
this is the cover lineart to issue 10 of Transformers MTMTE 10
this will also be part 2 or the 3 part story called shadowplay.
this image features Chromedome on a hover bike flying up the side of a building. well i love drawing buildings and i decided to have a lot of fun with this image, so i made it a building with a lot of reflective surfaces to it. so not only do you have a really detail background, but you have the reflection of that background also. also little semi side reflections on to parts of the building that jet out a bit. it was a lot of work, but i was very happy with the end result.
oh, the hover bike is a variation on the bike action master prowl has. good job for people on the board who noticed that ;)
issue 10 comes out in October

This is real epic! How´d you even keep track of every line?

I mean it´s such an amount of detail in depth that single strokes become less important in the overall picture, and yet they add so much. What a time slinger, but totally worth it! :thumbsup:

This actually gives me vertigo. ROCK ON, MAN!
This is impressive as slag. :salute:

I'm so glad that you were unselfish enough to put in all the reflection detail, but then let Josh's light obscure it somewhat. That would have been just a little bit hard for me.

why, it gives the proper effect for what would really happen.

Great cover Alex.

Love the awesome levels of detail on the background, puts me in mind of Barry Windsor-Smith's Machine Man stuff.
