Artwork Description

A new one for ShadowFist! I hardly ever draw tech stuff, so this was a challenge. On the other hand, I never draw monkeys and that part was easy, so... I have no idea what that says about me!

Great piece!

So this is the famous Ninja mountain print piece that sold so well!

megaflow's picture

I'll keep that in mind for next time.

that guns not big enough and it needs to be shooting a gorilla

megaflow's picture

Thanks, Guest! It's easier to do a badass drawing if you have a badass subject, and nothing beats monkeys plus big guns!

People who don't even play Shadowfist want a copy of this card becasue they love the art so much.

Thanks! There isn't always a lot of opportunity to do humor in Fantasy/Sf art, so it's nice to get the chance sometimes. Smile Glad you liked it!

uh - wow - now that´s what i call a really big weapon - and that monkey - lol - great piece - love the humor in this piece!!!

megaflow's picture

Oh, I was trying for a subtle, understated approach, Marley, so the gun is so small you can hardly see it... or maybe not... Smile Thanks a lot! (Getting a good bright red to print is a pain - not as bad as purple, but

Thanks, Stan - Again I must mention the client who was all for pushing it so FAR over the top! I'm glad he did! Smile

megaflow's picture

Oh, you'd probably stand a good chance in that alley, Chris - after all it looks like it would take him several minutes to decide which gun to aim/levers to flip/buttons to push, etc., during which time you could beat a retreat! -- Thanks a lot for the kind comments!

I think I had a good time doing the gun, in the end (though I sort of tore my hair out while it was in progress). Thanks!

megaflow's picture

Thanks lots, Sean! Thanks for looking, as always.

megaflow's picture

Cool! I'm glad it hit you in the right places, Leo! Thanks for writing. Smile

megaflow's picture

Thanks a lot, Bill! It was a fun one.

Patrick, great, over-the-top monkey humor.

yrindale's picture

That is one monkey I would not wish to meet in a dark alley....Seriously though, great work Patrick. For not being entirely practiced with either guns or monkeys you pulled this off nicely. That definately speaks a lot for your ability!

Love that gun, patrick. And the monkey's expression is priceless.

pageaxe's picture

Man that is so cool!Wicked work Patrick!

thrax-1's picture

Why'd you paint the gun so small patrick?It looks silly like that ;D.Heh i really like the lighting for the whole piece actually and the detail for both weapon and monkey are top notch.cool red background too!

I laughed hard when I clicked on your latest piece. This totally rules! The colors and awkward "I'm about to fall over from the weight of this thing" pose is priceless.

bcorbett67's picture

That's one serious gun Patrick, but the monkey's smile is priceless Laughing out loud

megaflow's picture

Thank you, Andreas! And I hope you don't mind my saying this (it might be a bit too personal) but your grandmother's bed must be ENORMOUS. Smile

megaflow's picture

Thanks, Tom! The weapon was supposed to look just ridiculously big and complex. I actually went through three iterations before the client said it was big enough... for which I'm glad because it just had to be stupidly large for the joke to work!

Art at its best.
