    I..I saw that cover the other day, without the text. But now I can't remember where. Deviantart, I think.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but does anyone else think it looks kinda unfinished?

    Uuuhh... I don't really think that looks good at all. Not even slighty good.

    It's pretty darn ugly actualy, Alex can't do TFA style :(

    Looks fine to me.
    If you wanna see TF art that looks unfinished and like shit, read heart of darkness. Your eyes will commit suicide.

    Hm. I do have to agree that those look more like Movieverse comic drawings.

    But Wildrider playing a trumpet makes up for it. XP

    You know what I was worried when the words "Alex Milne" and "animated comic cover" showed up in my twitter feed but then when i clicked and saw he did an homage to the itallian Job, I feel in love.

    Maybe you just have shit taste shroob I dunno?

    Or maybe you're a fan of British TF Animated comics? That's pretty much what this looks like :lol 

    Just kidding, british TFA comics had more life than that.

    WOOOOAH, that hurts man, that hurts.


    Honestly though the COLOURING on this seems a little dull. But you know, needed for the homage

    Coloring is dull, Motormaster's is extremely stiff to the point where his face looks like a 2d sticker inside of a head inside the box, the cars look horrible... yeah, should've just gotten Marcelo Matere to do it.

    Or Dyemooch, or any of the other 10000 artists that can do good TFA art that the club knows. Alex Mine should go back to bishounen driftu g1 robots.

    Id argue that Alex did an all right job giving motormasters head some depth, doesnot look 2d AT ALL. And like I said the cars/colours are supposed to emulate a movie poster, dont have to like it but there is reason for it.

    Honestly considering Alex used to have a very big "same face" issue (Still HATE how he drew magnus in the ongoing) it think he did a decent job. But, I cant argue that Marcelo would have been a better choice.

    cool homage!

    But this!
    TF Animated fun by *markerguru on deviantART
    It also would've helped if they got josh perez (the guy milne usually collaborates with) on colors. this doesn't look like his work.

    in final, marcelo is consistently the best way to go for animated art, second only to wyatt.

    also, "this is the mayhem masquerade society" makes me think of the g1 episode masquerade...intruiging

    Uh, are you serious? Just look at the sides of Motormaster's face, on the left there's that space between his cheek bones and the box's background... but he also added the same hole on the right side, which doesn't make sense at all unless Motormaster got a 2d head.

    A 2d head with a weird moustache that sits in that angle different from his chin and goatee.

    I don't know if it's a colorist messing up the original art, if Alex had to do it in a rush, all I know is that I think it's looks crappy, that we got alot of people that could've nailed it and that homaging a movie is no excuse for such stiff art considering all he had to do was draw a big face and three cars + old poster homage design, even the pic koreandude just linked by the same artist looked 100 times better.
