LSotW - Ironfist by Kingoji LSotW - Ironfist by Kingoji
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.

:iconkingoji:
Kingoji Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010
It almost was! But I figured Prowl has a more pronounced conspiritorial role in Wreckers proper, so I went with him.

I actually think this is better than your Guzzle pic mate - wouldn't look out of place on the cover of an IDW comic. Your colouring has improved loads too! Really liking this pic.

I agree 100%! This would not look out of place on the cover of an actual issue of the comic.

Overlord?? I'm probably wrong cos I'm crap at this type of stuff but sure what can you do!

Another great piece Ed and the colouring here is particularly impressive! Great perspective as well. Not always easy but you've done well here.

Overall a superb piece and I can't wait to see the next piece in the series. Even if it takes a while to see it!

Thanks, bro. Yeah, the next will be awhile due to other commitments.

And nope! Not OVERLORD...

Ok well my first guess was gonna be Rotorstorm and my third guess is Skyfall!!!!!

Duh. Brainfart. Thunderwing is the IDW forum username of Mike, down there.

Argh! It's the crest that I was focusing on and Prowl never even entered my mind! But then again when you talk about the symbols and messages hidden in this piece it makes perfect sense that it'd be Prowl!

Congrats not just on the art here but also on the execution of the idea!

Nope, and nope. Although I did toy with making him Skyfall...

As Thunderwing (the username) mentioned earlier on, it is indeed Prowl.
