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

Guido's cover was in the 5-page preview that was up on IDW's website, and I totally forgot that I didn't post it here!
The cover shows Drift- both as himself and as Deadlock, his name from his time as a Decepticon.

Artwork by :iconguidoarts: (Guido Guidi)
Colors by: :icondyemooch: MY PUNK ASS!

I think... this might have been the very image that caught my attention to the Drift series! :eager: I saw this somewhere and was like, " :? WHOA, this dude had an evil past or something?" And the more I looked it up, the more I wanted badly to read it! I got the Hardcover Complete collection. :D


Anyway, I've always loved the colors on this cover! :love: It fascinated me that Drift as "Deadlock" had the darker facial complexion that accented his equally dark demeanor, and the "renewed" good Drift's lighter facial tone is certainly associated with someone who's not evil. Appears more youthful, even. :)

This is a very striking image, and your colors on Mr. Guidi's artwork (and Mr. Milne's in the mini-series) have done TF Drift amazing justice!
Thank you so much for bringing your coloring magic to Transformers!

This is a fantastic cover :D
Could you explain how you get the optics and the lightning to glow? I've been experimenting a bit and I can't figure it out :/

This particular one was the lightning on a layer set to "outer glow"- most likely a darker orange set to screen or linear dodge.

Considering I just bought the Drift figure that came out last month, this please me greatly.

Now Hasbro needs to make a new Deadlock figure.

Your colors are always smexy, Dye. Just like you.

The toy helps the Drift love XD! I was indifferent on the guy(didn't like/hate him- in fact, aside from knowing he was created, I really didn't notice him too much in the comics to form an opinion of him); but having the toy really made me hyper while I was working on this book(I think I found him while working on issue 3- issues 2 and 3 are colored rather dull compared to issues 1 and 4).

strangely he looks much older as deadlock than he does as Drift, I suppose the fountain of youth (body wise) isn't too far for them.
