Artist Statement:
 
The subject was a Battlemech called The Firestarter. I imagined that it had inferno capabilities. Working at FASA Corporation at the time which published BattleTech, I was often working on books set in that world. There are hundreds of Battlemechs, huge mechanical humanoid weapons which roam about the universe waging war and settling scores. I was chosen to paint a cover for Challenge Magazine, as they happened to be doing an article on BattleTech. As a lifelong scout and camper, there’s something about fire. It’s quiet, ominous, and can be quite terrible. I tried to convey a bit of that in this fiery image. The huge ‘Mechs are terrifying in battle. Their ominous size and power convey destruction or salvation depending on which side of the cannons you are on. Is this fellow contemplating rescue or destruction? Only the next moment would tell.
