Surrender by dcjosh Surrender by dcjosh
Don posted up the lines to this on his DA account and they were relatively hi res enough to color so...i colored :P

So yeah! Here's my take on this page from the new TF Ongoing #2!

Felt like going with a rainy sky to kinda fit the mood or at least help set it a little better. Reminded me of the Marvel TF issue 71 where Optimus surrenders. It was all rainy and stuff so. a slight homage to that I guess

Okay... have to say more on this I know it's been like 3 or 4 days since I said something but I've gotta say the whole idea of seeing this image with the rain outside. OMG! I wish I could have seen you do more of these, rainy background... how you'd go with that with the rest of the issue. It set such a GREAT TONE. I've not been able to get this image out of my head for the last few days. Which is a good thing because you've hit whatever balance that you needed to make this memorable. And I'm still thinking about it and how poignant it is days later.

It's been a few months since I've really seen this consistently from IDW TF comics.

Again, great job Josh.

Very nice coloring! I love the way that Prime just sticks out against all of the grey-green and black of the military folks and the background. The way he was shaded really helps him pop, too. :>

I'd probably be one of the soldiers gawking up at him in the picture. It's really incredible both in detail and color.

But... you know Optimus is only surrendering because he's to nice and peaceful to frag the lot of 'em :)

Hmm...looks like you colored the originally white-and-black Skywatch Jump Suits sorta tan. Any particular reason for that?

That's my only complaint about this - and it's a minor one at that.

The lineart's not up on Don's site any more. :cry:

But thanks for posting! It looks awesome.
And I wholeheartedly support the general plea for you to put the water in. That would look AWESOME.

And for the record, I Do Not Surrender To Humans Just To Be Emo! :p
