So Liam's own for-fun take on this cover reminded me that my own version actually went through a couple revisions before settling on the final printed version!
This was actually before I realized this cover was a homage so I just kinda went to town. The first version was done up in the same color style i used for Death of Optimus Prime [just wanted to kind of bridge the styles between DoOP and MTMTE]
The second version was to give main focus on Rodimus there. It was thought to maybe use this one as a sort of promotional image for the book, but never got used
And then the final version was just a straight up homage. full color characters, stark white background
Anyways! I always find it fun looking into the behind the scenes stuff so figured itd be neat to post this up
