Starscream in Battle By: Sunstar

Artist's Note

Starscream in battle is sketched and scanned then coloured in Photoshop. I used dozens of layers to get the mountain, cloudy sky, fires, smoke cacti and everything.

Although this is far from my favourite piece, I am very pleased at how some of the perspective angles came out. His vertical stabilisers on his legs were very good in my opinion.

Here is a little bit of the story from where this drawing came from.

It was the first duel of Starscream's command. Megatron had challenges fairly often, but Megatron usually cheated. This time, the fight was one on one as they naturally were.

"Do you have the weapon?" Optimus Prime asked as he stood across from Starscream and adjusted the focus of his laser gun.

"Of course," Starscream replied. He stood with his wings and back slightly. His head was held high and he wore an expression that showed he meant business. "I'm not my former leader," he added.

"No, you are a lying scumbag who can't be trusted," Optimus said.

"Brave words, Prime. Put your credits where your mouth is..." Starscream paused as he looked at the battle mask that Optimus permanently wore. A smirk played across his lips. "We are wasting time with idle chit chat," Starscream hissed.

The Seeker locked optics with his opponent for a moment the two started to circle each other and Starscream raised his weapon and fired. Optimus Prime dodged the blast and fired back. Starscream fired his thrusters and shot into the sky and launched himself over and behind the Autobot leader.

Unfortunately for Starscream, he did not do too well in the duel.
