TF Drift 1 pg 3 by dyemooch TF Drift 1 pg 3 by dyemooch
Saw the Preview was up over on IDW Publishing's website!
(preview: [link] )
(other books out this week: [link] )

The 5 page preview was out, so I figured I'd post 'em here! This was an exciting book to work on guys : D!
Story by Shane McCarthy
Artwork by :iconmarkerguru: (Alex Milne)
Colors by: :icondyemooch: MY PUNK ASS!

Transformers is property of Hasbro/TakaraTomy

NOTE: That is NOT Carnivac getting shot. It's just a generic. The original person who it was supposed to be was found out to exist later in the timeline, so I changed the color scheme- basing his colors off of the G2 Breakdown toy's colors(not the Botcon one). I figured since G1 Breakdown exists, his G2 color scheme probably wouldn't get used outside of a random cameo- so I used them here.
This will happen several more times in the series, I'm sure- I'll throw in some random color scheme and the character might look like someone else. There are just so many Transformers and mech that it's quite possible for that to happen : )

Geez, when I see what Deadlock did to that poor Con he shot- It does reminds me from the first pages of the first LSOTW issue. Deja vu perhaps? O_o

P.S. You guys really did a good job! I can't wait to read it pffffffffffffffft!

Hahaha! There's something about Transformers and blowing people's heads up... specifically Decepticon generals-ish people and blowing off the heads of tattletales.

You're probably sick of this kinda thing, but I got to ask - Whats your thought process when your working on optics?

Been experimenting myself, trying to get something that looks "alive" and mechanical at the same time. Most of my experiments have em looking too much like Gundams for my liking.

I've actually never been asked that question- and I don't know how to form a cohesive answer to it... but I'll try :D!
There are usually three sections to the eyes I do(four in that last panel)- the highlight, the flat color, and the middle tone. The highlight is usually white to some degree and is just used to accent the eye itself. I don't know if there's some rule to where I place it, but it's usually in the middle to some degree, or in the top corner and bottom corner(opposite side of the top corner). The middle tone is where I have the most fun- I almost always use the bottom half of the eye for this tone, and I try to accent some kind of working eye mechanic in there for the pupil/iris area of the eye.
...):I I don't think that made sense... maybe I should do a tutorial on how I do it...
