TF Defiance 3 Cover by dyemooch TF Defiance 3 Cover by dyemooch
Saw that this was posted up here: [link]
Asked the mighty powers that be if it was okay to put this up, and got the green light.

Defiance 3 is BEAUTIFULLY drawn by Don Figueroa and colored HORRIFICALLY by me, Josh Perez :)
On sale March 18!

I LOVE THIS COVER; I keep hearing Bohemian Rhapsody to it... I actually listened to Queen a lot while coloring this book. Well, Queen and Disney music from UAB radio... XD
Coloring a fight scene to the music of Mainstreet USA? AWESOME.

With no offense to IDW's other Transformers artists, this book BLEW ME AWAY with it's surrealistic take on Cybertron and an EVEN MORE alien aesthetic to these movie characters. I hope I didn't mess it up for you guys! Mowry's story and Don's art are an amazing combination in this book.

I hear you on the art for this issue. The last two issues were rather disappointing in terms of the art (coloring was beautiful). Whoever drew issues 1 and 2 just didn't understand the aesthetic of the movieverse bots. He tried giving them fleshy mouths and they just ended up looking awkward, especially Prowl in issue 2. This is MUCH better, and I can't WAIT to get this book on Wednesday.

Is Don on board for the rest of the Defiance series, or just issue 3?

I kinda agree with what you said here.
Whilst the art for the last two issues was by no means bad (much of it was well done), it didn't match the feel of the movie bots as well.
Especially Prime's face, I mean here he looks alot more like he did in the movie.

Do you really listen to Disney? You should totally give a listen to UABmagic.com; it's the theme park music from DisneyLand and DisneyWorld- it's my CRACK.
It's HILARIOUS coloring violent scenes to "The Tiki room" or the aforementioned Mainstreet USA tunes XD.

Thank you very much for the compliment :D

I totally do. Thanks for the link! I've been addicted to Disney since I was a little kid and I just can't let go their classics. But it's like you say-- totally hilarious. I know it's not Disney's but I colored Max Dinos listening to the Land Before Time OST (hey it's still dinosaurs!) occasionally shifting to Celldweller-- both have LOTS in common XD; Twisted, yep.

Ah it's nothing-- you rock! :D

MAMA!!!!!

Ah yosh that song struck my head when I saw this piece.....Figueroa has a unique way of representing Transformers in other recognizable iconic forms of media like classic comic book covers.....if that makes any sense?

Good job on the colouring as always Perez!

I need to catch up on recent IDW issues....lackage of cashage. :/

Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?

XD Sorry, had to since you mentioned Queen. And yeah, it DOES resemble that picture.

But Holy Allspark, Dye-man. Your stuff just gets better and better, man. You're gonna make me end up being broke trying to buy all the stuff w/ your fantasmawesome shitz.
