hey all
saw this went up online, so i figured i'd show it off here without any of the text and logo's covering up the art
here is the new trade cover i did for vol 5 of MTMTE
i wanted to do something special for that vol, and i really didn't want IDW to use issue 17's cover over again.  not that there would be anything wrong with that.  i just felt the trade needed something a bit more special.  also i wanted a bit more colourful image for the trade cover.
Josh Perez delivered that requested and more.  i was blown away by this cover when i saw it.  i don't think i could stop smiling when i saw it.  i had the image open on my computer for a whole week just looking at it.  thats how happy i was with what he did with this cover :)
it truly is one of my favourite covers i've done recently.  i'm happy i can share it with you now and i had the time to do this cover as a thank you to the fans that support MTMTE. 
i hope you enjoy vol 5 and what will come in the future
take care :)

Every time I see this I can't help but imagine Rodimus quoting He-Man and saying "I HAVE THE POWER!"

Hey, what's that glowing thingy Rodimus is holding?

Yay, Pharma's grin - the stuff that's feeding my nightmares ever since. :iconlazydyingplz:

well at least there's Rung. And he's smiling. That works sort of like a counterpart :dummy:

(this is a gorgeous cover by the way :la:)

Very, very nice! Josh did a spectacular job with the colors and you did some wonderful linework, as usual! 

Can't wait to get my hands on the TPB now!

Did you hear that noise? It was the sound of my jaw breaking a hole in the floor when it dropped after I saw this cover.
Pure. Awesomeness.
Can't wait to buy vol. 5! :heart:

Amazing!  This the most badass I've ever seen Rung look.  What is he carrying though?
