So here is the lineart for issue 37 of MTMTE. 
This was a fun piece to do since I decided to ink this image mainly with a brush.
there are a few tiny areas where I used a tech pen, mainly where there are ellipses that needed to be inked and some of the long straight lines in the background.  So on average I would say 90-95% of this image was inked with a brush.
It probably took me a bit longer to do since I don't normally ink with a brush unless i'm filling in the black areas or doing smoke, so this was a nice change. 
I hope there will be another cover in the future where I can use this method again.

The colours were done by the very talented Josh Perez.  Not sure how he felt about this cover since its not my normal style of work I give him, but I enjoy how it turned out :)


tools, WN series 7#3 brush, Rapidograph .35 tech pen, Rapidograph universal ink

lineart :iconmarkerguru: that's me
colours :icondyemooch: So much talent :)

For some reason, when I read Last Stand of the Wrecker now, I imagine Impactor talking with a Stallone-like voice. I guess it's because he sort of reminds me of John Rambo. Then again, the Wreckers remind me of a lot of those awesome action hero flicks of the 70s, 80s, & 90s. Springer reminds me of Harrison Ford, Kup reminds me of Clint Eastwood, Impactor reminds of both Sylvester Stallone & Arnold Schwarzenegger. They're just too freaking awesome!

Definitely Impactor but this cover makes me realize just how much he resembles our baddies from the first pages of Drift: Empire of Stone #1. I haven't made it any further than issue 1 so I don't know if there is actually a connection between them. Please folks, don't give me any spoilers if this is the case.
Great job on this though. One seriously bad-ass, pissed off looking Wrecker and one awesome cover. I'd love to see this made into a full size poster.

reminds me of Devastator (Generation One) in the best way...thank you.

{not sure who Impactor is, but this makes me want to learn more}

An ex - leader of the Wreckers.

His time was short lived in the original comics where he showed up, but he has a slightly more involved role in IDW's continuity.

God, I hope Impactor's really back and he's not in flashbacks. Anyway, this cover is epic beyond all reason. :3
