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.
