"Popular Science" traces Transformers?

There's an article in the January issue of Popular Science titled "The Terminator Scenario: Are We Giving Our Military Machines Too Much Power?" Which, sure, is an interesting topic, and entirely appropriate for the magazine. But look at the cover:

That, uh... that looks awfully familiar, doesn't it?

That's Ravage! Movie Ravage! I can't find it, but even that pose seems to be lifted directly from some promo shot. If you follow the link to the article, there's another shot from a different angle, and it still looks like movie Ravage. Was the artist specifically told to trace pictures of Ravage, or was it their choice? And was this an intentional homage, or a swipe that we weren't meant to notice?
