LSotW - Ironfist

Back when I submitted my Guzzle piece I mentioned that I'd like to do similar images for the other Wreckers rookies. So here's number two; Ironfist!

It's probably not as striking as the Guzzle one, but that's because I wanted a completely different tone. Here I was going for ominous, with maybe a hint of sadness.
The quote may not be as amusing as the first piece's, but it is packed full of meaning. As is the rest of the pic, actually, and it all ties together; the data slug he's looking at somberly, the bullet holes in the backdrop, and just who does that shadow belong to anyway?

You know a cover story when you hear one do you, Ironfist? Do you really?

I think Ironfist is *probably* my favourite of the rookies, but that is not an easy thing to say. Certainly, it's between him and Guzzle.

Oddly, when I saw the thumbnail for this image, I thought it might be Punch, which made the background text interesting...

Nice job, I love it! Possibly one of the greatest TransFormers stories ever told (on of, there are plenty that are just as great, and a few better ;)) Poor Ironfist. :(

They were awesome! Whenever I'm doing TransFormers RPG I'm always a Wrecker! Wreck 'N' Rule! :D

And yet the poor guy fell for the biggest one in TF history. I have the Ironfist toy at home (lucky me) and it was nice to see the guy finally get some action, even if it was for just one story.

I think it's only appropriate that a story with as many layers as LSOTW gets an equally layered homage, and you don't disappoint, sir.

Rotorstorm's still my fave Wrookie, but it's nigh impossible to not have a giant soft spot for Ironfist by the end of things.

Glad you approve, Jey! I think it's safe to say at this point that Rotorstorm and Pyro will be coming along as well... but everything I've come up with for them so far is more along the lines of the Guzzle pic; more a representation of personality.

Seems fair; the two of them got the least development, admittedly. I look forward to it, your stuff so far has been top-notch! :)

I like all the rookies but Ironfist and Guzzle are the most interesting characters out of the four. :D Great job.

I confess I wouldn't have understood all the layers of meaning in this if I hadn't read the comments. But having done so, I must say, Great Work Here.

Is that Skyfall's shadow?

Awesome piece, it's just brimming with sobriety.

It almost was! But I figured Prowl has a more pronounced conspiritorial role in Wreckers proper, so I went with him.
