A post apocalyptic minotaur for my IP Project EXECUTION. Warped by a huge mutant pandemic, he stalks the post apocalyptic wasteland searching for other survivors to maim and dismember... until he is the only one left alive...

I don't think I've ever liked a drawing/speed painting this much on Deviantart. It really took a hold of me and made me want to see more, so that's exactly what I did. I looked through basically all of your galleries and I have to say that I was completely blown away. The originality of your work is impeccable and I hope you never stop drawing! This drawing/painting in particular really spoke to me and I'm not entirely sure why. There's just something about it (and most of your work) that makes me want more. I'm completely astonished by your talent and I hope I get to see more of it soon!

I believe that this is the perfect artwork for the post-apocolyptic fan. Everything about this piece is amazing! I love the scyth, and the fact that he's part horse brings it all together. The gas mask always bring that, "Whoa, this guy is serious" kind of attitude to the picture. I just love everything about this. The thing is, this guy looks like he's a fighter. Is that to be true? He has new and old technology, but that's what is so cool about this pictuer. I freaking love this! Keep it up, Lord! I will be watching for new art from you!

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.

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!

Impressive! If you cannot come up with a comic, release an artbook instead ;) I don´t know if those are still "en vouge" (they were for period of time when I was young... which was a not a thing of the recent past) :)

Really, the title and story behind this guy makes him the most terrifying. It almost makes you AFRAID of being a survivor. I can see survivors desperately trying to commit suicide between ruins as soon as they see him approaching, trying to get a faster and less painful death than he would provide. That's fantastic horror story material. :D

Reminded me of a Slig from Oddworld.
AustenMengler's avatar
Ah yes, love Oddworld but never played them - I really should though as I just got them all on Steam :o

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