Overkill bat by Acrylicdreams Overkill bat by Acrylicdreams
Just some Overkill fan art.
Great band and I always loved their mascott.

Mostly painted in Painter, with a little additional work in Photoshop, about 10 hours (I don't know exactly).

Here's another version: [link]

Looks like the Death Bat from Avenged Sevenfold

Yeah, they ripped it off from a far, far worthier band called Overkill.

but then again, a skull with wings is hardly unique:
A7x used it
Overkill used it
Legend of Zelda used it
and I have no problem believing Tim Burton used it somewhere.

Yeah, well - Being an old school Metaller myself, I can see why a young outfit is trying to steal the imagery of the legendary bands.

Though to be fair, what makes you so sure it's stealing?

Among Metalheads, Overkill is a legend.
Their bat-skull mascot is as well-known as Maiden's Eddie or Megadeth's Vic Rattlehead.

Avenged Sevenfold is a corporate creation. The record label suits that control them made a
lame copy of the skull mascot belonging a well-respected and established US thrash band.

I've been into metal since 1988, I've done my homewrk, dude.

Then they have copied it from Overkill, who used it already in the 80s ;)
