SURVIVOR SLAYER by AustenMengler SURVIVOR SLAYER by AustenMengler
PROCESS VIDEO

My thoughts for this guy is he's the result of a huge mutant pandemic, roaming an post apocalyptic city searching for other survivors to maim and dismember until he is the only one left. All done in Photoshop CS5 - 5-6 hours or so in total. This guy is going to appear in my comic "Execution" at some stage, just as soon as I figure out what it's all about.

I love the concept of this piece! None of the features are outstanding and separate the the style with the concept, it works quite flawlessly. I love the mist effect at the legs and feet, it gives a real aspect of the unknown. My personal favourite part of 'Survivor Slayer' is the scythe; because of the intricate beauties on it. And that Gas mask, reminds me a tad of a Fallout dealy, great balance of the black though!
Overall Great job!
:dummy: I wouldn't personally say that the Impact is (or needs to be, for that matter) huge, but saying that, I think that the subtle terrors and shocks make it better anyway!
What do you think?

All I can say is wow. The Survivor Slayer is my favourite. The gas mask and the spear did it all. I really like the idea that he has modern and old survival tools. To me, this is a mix between a Spartan, and a horse. The amour, the gas mask, spear, and chains go extremely well together. I look up to your art and hope and set my goals to be as good as you when I'm older. The survivor slayer should be put smack down written into a book. Lordnetsua, KEEP IT COMIN'! [ i reeaaalllyyy want to transform into a slayer.

Looks like a homicidally manical post-apocalyptic satyr. Or minotaur with no horns.

This is gorgeous - shades of Nemesis the Warlock here (he'd look pretty at home in the pages of 2000AD). Top shelf stuff!
