Well, since the cat's outta the bag so to speak, here's the pencilled version of the Megatron Cover. I'm real excited to see Simon & EJ's new take on the 'Bots! It's gonna be fun! Posted by Hello

Found my way here after the Raiz-love was reignited by the new TF cover. These are unreal! I mentioned on some other board that I always felt you were the most talented artist to be 'stifled' by Dreamwave, and that rings true here too. And the detail on your X-Men samples...! Don't know what's the best way to put this, but it's heartening to see an artist with the same 'problems' as me! Y'see, once I just start that detail, that's the end of it. Like you said, it's a case of opening up the page...but detail is so much fun!

I loved seeing these, James. AS someone who was switched on because of your Transformers work, it's lovely to see what an amazing all-round artist you are. Keep it up, and best of work for the future!

Greets James!

Found this by your plug at the Allspark. Anyways, wanted to stop by and say i'm a huge fan of your work. Your style has always been an awesome inspiration [i just love it!] for my own art.

I just think its uber cool that I can say i've colored a few of your pics before [for the Armada MTMTE books @ Dreamwave]

anyways, enough fan gushing and onto the cover xD

I thought you did an awesome job on it. You're humans look amazing [much better than the anime-ish stuff you had to do for DW IMO] and you caught the expressions of surprise and fear very well. You also made the bots look huge and imposing as if looking at them from our point of view. Not something you see too commonly in TF art. :D

I just wish it was colored better for IDW x___o

anyways, take care!!!
