Gunslinger and Betsy by Canalus Gunslinger and Betsy by Canalus
An illustration I made for :iconjazzeke:'s story "Fire with Fire", which is also a birthday present and an entry for his illustration contest (in which every sensible artist in the galaxy should take part):

Mysterious Autobot and ex-human Gunslinger shoots down a Predacon raider with the aid of Betsy, his trusty grenade launcher. All Hell's a-coming for them Predacons!

Oh yes. Well, Spike kind of became one when binary-bonded with Fortress Maximus, didn't he?

I'm still trying to understand that bianary-bond and head master thing...

Yeah, I know. It's never made too clear why is it a good thing to have a little guy transform into your head...

Yes, indeed. If I were a Transformer and someone said, here, let's take off your normal head and have this transforming-human take over the job... I'd run screaming for the hills!!!!

Same here. I guess that's the reason why they had to kidnap and dismantle Sunstreaker to turn him into a Headmaster in the -ation series...

He'd have been a fool to go willingly!!!!
Poor Sunstreaker. That scene with him tied down and screaming while being torn apart was seriously disturbing.

I know! Furman has a really creepy side, and it shows in some of his stories. I guess that's why I like him ^_^

Same. :/

It feels that I can do MUCH better with my own artwork, as well.

Well, I guess that'w what keeps one going and trying to a better artist. The moment you feel 100% satisfied, that's when you stop improving!

I'm not surprised you're the first to get an entry in. You're an even greater machine than Gunslinger! An art machine.

Y'know I never really thought up a design for Gunslinger in this form, but I just love this. The colors are awesome of the helmet is perfect. I love the Pred ship too - very Romulan-y. And I love the color balance of the overall piece!

Thanks! Since he's supposed to transform into a "cybertronian Mustang", I figured he had to look a bit like Prowl or Jazz, and have Moonhunter's helmet but in a less smooth, more machine-like fashion.
