Let me explain, before the whole site laughs me off of the net:
In the 2007 film, Prime refers to the dying Megatron sorrowfully as 'brother'. Both Megatron and Shockwave transform into heavy weaponry, and both have cannons on/for their right arms. From the waist down, their chassis are identical.
But most compelling is the trust that Megatron shows Shockwave at the beginning of G1 by leaving him in charge of Cybertron. And for *millennia*, Shockwave loyally awaits the return of his superior.
Yes, it was done absolutely intentionally - as soon as this is the illustration for times before Decepticon rebel.
You're right - it is after conflict, but after their LAST conflict. Later Megatron will try to kill Orion.
And now texts are in Russian.
But I will make more illustrations, so, the story will be understandable without any translation
And, may be, sooner or later it will go to comics way (which is very fast and easy to translate)
I find your choice of title intriguing as well. The image alone if very thought provoking in their youth, among their home and even the moon behind them.
Once again, well done. I do enjoy pieces that make one sit and ponder. Keeps one coming back to look again and again.
