Shockwave... ARE ALL DEAD.

This was a commission which the client wanted an updated, modernized version of the timeless cover of Marvel's Transformers issue number 5 that was done by Mark Bright.

I felt a little awkward about doing this one, since the original is so dang awesome, but I enjoyed doing it nonetheless.

Peace! :peace::)

The original was on of the best covers of the Marvel run. Nicely done.

My boyfriend wants to color this picture and post it elsewhere. Do you mind if he does so while giving you proper credit?

The original was such an iconic issue.

Transformers was just being upgraded from a mini to a full fledged title.

I think it's hard to improve on something so awesome but you did a great job with the line art.
The problem is whoever colors this piece better be awesome because the bar for this one is set real high.

Nice work:clap:

May I try and colour it? Once someone here on DA suggested me to try and colour a more detailed TF's pict, and now I'd like to actually give it a try :please:
