TF Ongoing issue 23 cover B

so i thought i'd start the hype for isuse 23 now since it will be out on the 10th of August i believe?

i saw this on twitter a while back while back on therealteadadams yfrog pic. so i felt now that it is August for me, it would be cool to show it off and get some hype going for the book
link to where i saw it online :) [link]

this was a lot of fun to do. like the megatron covers, this is a duel prime cover, one showing him in the past, one in the present
this be prime in the past, or orion pax ;p

i gotta say that Josh Perez did a fabulos job on these covers. this one have all the textures that make it look like primes been through a lot, even way back before the great war started.

this issue of ongoing was amazing to work on.
there was so much to draw. i gotta say that James Roberts really packed this issue full of greatness.
if you liked issue 22, then i'm sure you'll like issue 23 :)
also it was great working with Joana on these books. she really outdid herself with them. i'm grateful to have worked with her on this project :)
well, enjoy :)

I can't even comprehend the level of detail on this, if I think about it for too long I may explode. Honestly, this has got to be, one of my favorite, IF NOT my all time favorite Optimus Prime piece in existence.

you two are so epicly awesome when you work together!!! :w00t:

I love this amazing pic! my favourite part is totally his optic, looks so real and great!
Interesting that you're going for the facemask for Orion Pax when past "appearances" (Megatron: Origin, Spotlight: Blurr) featured him without it. Looks awesome nevertheless :)

something you don't know about megatron origins is that Pax has a extra head piece or helmet that covers the regular head and has the faceplate. not seen very clearly in the shot he's seen in, but thats what i intended from the start all those years ago.
but for the most part, James and IDW wanted him to look that way, so i do what they want :)
