This seems to be based on Baphomet, the alleged God that the Knight Templars were accused of worshiping before their wrongful trial, as depicted by the 19th century French occultist Éliphas Lévi.
It could be suggested that the word "Baphomet" was a bastardization of "Mohammed," since the Knight Templars were actually allies with the early Hashahshins, despite what the Assassin's creed games tell me.
The devil From the Paul foster case deck was actually originally based off Eliphas Levi's Baphomet, and I did the same. . Because baphomet is such an awesome image! Also baphomet and the devil share some similarities in symbolism. However there are a few differences: instead of angel wings, Paul foster case's devil has vampire bat wings. Instead of a flame facing upwards, the devil is holding the flame towards the ground (causing it to burn faster and shorter). Instead of holding his hand up with 3 fingers revealed and 2 concealed (a common symbol of divinity), the devil shows his whole hand. Instead of the pentagram facing up, the pentagram is facing down in the devil card. I see the devil as being baphomet's antithesis.

I kinda like this, but the 3/4 facial view raises some questions from me. Maybe it's just me, but I wonder if this pose is possible. Try turning your head as far back to your shoulders and you'll see what I mean. I'm wondering if a more natural pose would be a side view of her head, with an aside glance.
You Got GUTS Power.
I dig the the Gainaxish/Yoshinori Kanada vibes I get from this. Like Megaman's silver ribcage.
This Mega Man is not as a cute as his other, more cherished and popular incarnation, but he is finely detailed.
This style, that depicts our beloved blue bomber as a sleeker, thinner, grittier, and mechanical, rather than cute and cuddly does seem to fit with that one mode of thinking that was perpetuated in an issue of Game Informer under the "Top 10 assassins list".
That theory being about how Megaman, when you look at him realistically, is actually a steel hearted, cold and detached assassin android, that just follows orders from his seemingly benevolent creator Dr. Light.
Evidence supporting this being that:
1. Megaman/Rock is a robot, and a robot that was created before the X series where robots gained truly human characteristics like the ability the make decisions for themselves, a sense of right and wrong, a personality etc. Rock is a simple robot that just follows commands not unlike an advance dos program. Megaman's percieved persona is just whatever junk Dr. Light programs into him, Megaman only fights Wily, because Dr. Light told him to do so. Like Bioshock's Andrew Ryan said, a "man chooses a slave obeys"
2. From early on up to Megaman 7(or maybe 6...) We never saw Wily's robots attack cities in game like it says in the instruction manual. In game, Megaman is always invading enemy territory. Not defending his hometown, or anyone else's hometown from the robot masters. It's always Megaman teleporting into his target's lair, blasting through target's defenses, killing the target, and teleporting out without a trace. Picture this, Dr. Light would walking up to his shiny blue robot and saying, "Would you kindly invade that construction site and terminate my rival's construction bot please."
Thank you for your very long review, and explanation. This really helps the Image. You've done you research well. Your a good writer though. Tell you that:)
That looked really tricky to draw, great perspective as far as I can see. A lot of energy.
It looks like Chun Li's Spinning Bird "Kikku" has been countered by Cammy! I wonder how she's going to get out of this squeeze. That is, if she can.
This is the level of mastery I strive to reach... Yet, can not obtain.
Wait... What's this about inaccuracy? When I look at, it makes me think you have done your research and have some degree in mechanics. I mean it's hard for a person like me writing a science fiction story involving nano-technology to think about what kind of devices would the characters be using, what kinds they won't be using, and more importantly, being brave enough to describe and detail what is in your devices. Your incredibly detailed painting of a futuristic engine astonishes me. I didn't think I saw a flaw in it because it is so detailed. If their is one, can you lay it on me?
Thank you very much for the kind words :). To answer your question...some users highlighted the lack of a composition sinc it's entirely filled with detail and nothing really stands out. There's always something you can improve hehe
Oh man! I love those two movies!
They were both two of the most underrated horror spoofs of the 1980's. Both had a catchy theme song each, and both are as ridiculous as it gets.
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes spoofs bad horror films and the "Attack of the..." tropes by making itself out to be the worst horror movie ever. They do every trick in the book (Putting a giant prop tomato on a not-so-hidden wheelie cart, don't bother to give the tomatoes "mouths" but just use real tomatoes, choopy stop motion, etc.) One of my favorite bits were the "specialist team." There was this black disguise artist who dresses up as Adolf Hitler yet manages to fool an WWII vet. The disguise artist dresses up as tomato and convinces other tomatoes that he is a tomato just like them and that "He is just wearing the decapitated head and severed limbs of a black victim." Great stuff.
Killer Klowns is another classic. I don't know why it has 4.0/10 on IMDB, it's just too entertaining and self aware for that treatment. Basically it's about these clown-like aliens that invade a small town and the young teens that fight back. It's better than it sounds. The aliens kill people with comical clown items (Lazor guns that turn people into cotton candy, boxing gloves that will "knock your block off," shadow puppetry, and even acid pies!) I don't wanna spoil it for anyone but their weak spot is their nose.
: 3 MMM mmm... PICKLES!!!
You just reminded me...
That no matter how hard I'd fail at something...
I mean, no matter how HARD I fail...
Like, I could end up making an incredibly horribly animated and poorly written and just plain shoddy piece of work. Yet it will still be more of an achievement than anything Christian Weston Chandler has ever done in his life!
When ever I look at any page relating to him, I frown, laugh a litlle, and cry on the inside while staring off into the darkness of mankind's soul.
It makes me feel relieved to know, that while I might be heading towards a downward spiral, that no matter how bad I do, I'll never be as pathetic a human being as Chris-Chan.
Some say Chris Chan is the sole proof of an imperfect/nonexistent God. But not if you look at it in a different way. Chris-Chan may have been deliberately put on this Earth to give hacks like Rob Liefeld and Daveykins a newfound confidence in themselves that will inspire them into an age of greatness they never would have thought they would achieve! They now go to bed at night in peace. Those poor souls who are dying alone, those emos who haplessly throw their lives away, those divorced drunkards tearing it up in the pubs, the std ridden whores who waste away in the alleys, that guy who blew 20 million dollars of taxpayer money on a failed NASA project just because of a slight miscalculation with the metric system...
...All these people can rest easy knowing that at least they are not a morbidly fat, sweaty, smelly, obnoxious, unattractive, stupid, idiotic, moronic, blabbering, illiterate, tasteless, shallow, lazy, sexist, disgusting, perverted, misogynistic, homophobic, racist, greedy, narcissistic, evangelistic, Christ-complexed, striped shirted, insensitive, unpatriotic, unamerican, communist, facist, totalitarian, completely talentless, utterly backwards, totally unoriginal, socially inept, emotionally and mentally unstable, 27 year old-and-counting, "high-functioning" autistic, virgin manchild who wears a clay medallion of an amalgam mascot of two blended copyright infringements to show off his faggoty fanboy tendencies all the while publicly humiliating himself 24/7 and forever establishing himself as the biggest EPIC LULZ COW on the internet!
This way, everyone wins, except Chris-Chan. but that's okay, Chris is so unaware in his blissful bubble of ignorance and stupidity, that he doesn't realize, let alone even notice how much of a colossal wreck of a human being he is!
Don't you fret my boy, his ED article will WIN! There's NO COMPETITION WHATSOEVER! Poll's closed due to AIDS, and that AIDS is Christian "Ricardo" Weston Chandler!
You know, of course, that I'm talking about that impostor, Ian Brandon Anderson! Not the REAL Chris Chan though. The real Chris-Chan is a very handsome and slim bishie who actually plays guitar! He can play "More Than a Feeling" and sing that pop song, "Heaven" quite well . He does not need to be helplessly defiled by such a slanderous troll! The REAL Chris Chan will find true love someday, but Ian Brandon Anderson will die alone and unloved. His grave will read "Fag."
Anyway, nice picture. It is masterfully painted and has a nice color scheme to it! A good tribute to the late Jimmy Hill, the TRUE and HONEST creator of Sonichu and the re-inventor of the world's most popular game "Kick the Autistic." God bless his soul.
chris chan is better than me
Oh Man Did I Love That Book!
I even danced to the song "Wild Thing" even so that is unrelated subject matter.
Chances are you probably seen the trailer for the new movie and thus got inspired to do this. Regardless of possible media pandering, this is a nice piece. It might not be so wide and extraordinary on a scale of grandmaster epic-ness. It might not have a wide variety of colors to induce a level of realism ala Alex Ross. It might not be as surreal or mind screwing as M.C. Escher or Salvador Dali. It might not be as extravagantly experimental like Van Gogh or Picasso. It might not raise such questions and controversy the way Jackson Pollock or Andy Warhol could do. But I do see much effort put into each individual strand of hair on Carol's mouth and chin. I have to say I truly wish to go to the place where the wild things are. That, and it is very cute.
P.S. I don't if the movie is going to do well considering the fact the way most movies based on children's books turn out, especially one as short as the book in question. The trailer looks mighty fine though.
