Brutal Legend by MBirkhofer Brutal Legend by MBirkhofer
Mike Dimayuga did this sweet Brutal Legend pic after playing the demo.
I haven't actually tried the game myself yet. But I do love Tim Schafer games, and metal does rock.

:iconmikedimayuga:

It occurs to me in hindsight. I did not listen to any Dragonforce while coloring this. oops.
colors:me


:edit:  Mike has since passed away.  Sept 2013.  A great artist, and great person.

This is my first critique, and it looks really really cool. The color in the background, and it really shows how the world of heavy metal is actually supposed to be; fire, bunches of spikey stuff, and just randomness of everything. Everything including the details is original, and you probably woulda made 5 out of 5 if you had something on there such as....the stage or something. Also, I'm still debating on which bridge this is, whether from the beginning, or the one in the end dealing with the undead. Again dude, it looks really really cool with everything in the picture. Peace out and let heavy metal on!
What do you think?

Did you actually do this? Or upload this for someone else? I'm confused by the description?

Hi.  Sometimes I get a bit careless with a full description.  Two signatures, from with Mike's probably not helpful in that.

Mike Dimayuga did the lineart for this.
I did the coloring.

It was a collaboration.
His DA is here.

you did not ask this... but I feel I should pass this along.  Mike passed away last September.

Ha thanks.
Rights would be shared with "the other mike". (name amusingly appropriate. ha)
But I don't post images up at high enough rez to really be used for much. So, I don't really mind if people link, pass around, or print out home copies of the size posted.
*unless the image in question is clearly labeled as being copyrighted to someone else. Like DC/Marvel pages.

I didn't have time to comment yesterday but this is the best fanart of Brutal Legend I found. The art itself is amazing but combined with your skill of coloring is simply awesome.

Great tribute for one of the best (imho) games of 2009 :)
