Firestarter by flyingdebris Firestarter by flyingdebris
I was thinking that i needed something to compete with my previous atlas blasting furries pic, so I made this one as a sucessor. Its a 35 ton firestarter mech from battletech roasting up some fursuiters. The proper way to view this picture is to make fwoosh noises while laughing like a supervillian.

Then the Furries retaliate with a 4.7 inch hyper-velocity AP rocket barrage. Scout mech destroyed. Anthrocon resumes.

shame the FS ain't a scout mech so much as an AP mech that happens to scout....also it's core going critical would vaporize the building.

Too bad that such good art is made by a pestiferous, ignorant, hater. Talent is wasted on you, and I'm not even a furry.
Moonasha Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it takes a hardcore autist to get this upset over a joke

I'd like to point out that this guy isn't really a hater. He was just screwing around.
hopterque Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
Why would you waste time defending furries if you aren't one, they're indefensible.
Yomo415 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012
I would use my time defending furries even though I am not one because I am not a vile human being who only cares about those who are exactly like himself. Because making art that glorifies or jokes about the murder of a specific group you don't agree with because that's "funny" or whatever, is really not cool. That and I know quite a few furries and have met many more at Anthrocon (As I live in Pittsburgh)and they are some of the coolest, most interesting people I've ever met.

But I guess I shouldn't bother arguing with imbeciles on the internet.

Gentlemen, gentlemen, no fighting on deviantART please. While it is a little obscene I suppose, this work is an otherwise wonderful display of talent. And Yomo, I would like to refer you to rules 11 and 20 in one of my favorite public texts. Just a thought. [link]
The internet can be a dreadfully unintelligent place; I suggest you sit back and enjoy the chaos from afar. Keep up the good grammar, it's rare.
Yomo415 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012
Yeah, I know. Never get into internet arguments is a rule I try not to break. It's just that every so often I get really sick of stupid hateful people. Who, at times, seem to be all the internet has to offer.

I used this for Firestarter FS9-H [link]
Trenditon Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012
You were absolutely right!

The fwooshing and maniacal laughter made it much more enjoyable [link]
deadborderbob Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011
This one does a great job of depicting the Firestarter as the true terror it actually is great work.

Mortrarion Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
The other version of this on the 25th Anniversary Artbook is cool, but this, I must say, is the better of the two.

Cleanse the Taint with Flame and Fury!

though i'm not too keen on the "burning furries" portion of this, therobot looks badass
Nesphore Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2011

it's like some 80's sci-fi movie poster
Norsehound Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010
Mmm.... Flamers.

Only criticism is that it isn't obvious they were furries like the last one.
darktimesakasteve Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010
ok. lets all go to youtube and listen to the song 'firestarter' by prodigy while looking at this.

How Catalyst havent picked this one up I'll never know (I didnt realise they were furries till I read the text lol).

A lot of the battletech art looks very static, this definitely doesnt :D
Anastas2002 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010
Nice to see the ol' FS9-H getting some love. It was probably one of the most under-appreciated 'Mechs in the game.
FallingDark Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist have some badass work.
twtmaster Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
tastily slender. Fire does shit against another mech, and the games never really let you burn heret- I mean, infantry, so the Firestarter never really fell in with me. Nonetheless, awesome 'mech :salute:

I can only imagine the smell afterwards...

Burnt hair, semen and feces.

I think Firestarter is even worse news for furries than Atlas, especially 3050 version with BAP. They can run, they can hide, but still they BURN!

Very nice coloring. My only crit is the perpective on the hole in the wall. You shouldn't be able to see any of the inside of the wall on the edge closest to you. Otherwise Kudos, it's an amazing painting. :)

"world domination!!!"
"we're being overrun sir! the mech is too powerful for our battle-fursuits!"
"thats right bitches, run, fear my powerful machine!!! hahahahaha!!!!!"
