100 Theme Challenge

Theme #74: Are You Challenging Me?
17 down, 83 to go.

I'm killing 3 birds with 1 stone here. This was done partly for this 100 Theme Challenge, partly for CGHub's weekly art jam (topic: Animal Warriors), and partly for `yrindale's request for penguin themed art (sorry, Yrindale, it's not exactly pro-revolution, but is pro-brawling... close enough?)

So anyway, to satisfy all three tasks, I've come up with Drunken Penguin Hussars. Erm.... yeah. LOL.

2.5 hrs. Photoshop. Used Wiki and Google for loose refs on costumes and penguins.

You really managed to pack alot of action and emotion in such a small space, awesomeness. I gotta show it to my boyfriend (he loves penguins) and see what he says XD

I totally needed this today, you have no idea :)

I'm gonna link this into the journal thumbnails if that's cool, it'll be a good addition to the revolution. Besides, what's a revolution without some merry celebrations when things go well!

Yay, it's certainly cool to me. I'm just glad you liked it.

And aww, I hope you're not having a bad week or something. :hug:

XD That's amazing! It took me a minute to realize what they were, but when it did it cheered me right up. The lighting on the tossed drink is great, too.

Thats... um, pretty awesome. :D I love the lighting and stuff. This is quite unique, lol. I'm pretty sure no one's ever drawn a drunken penguin Hussar and done in so epically!!! XD

This picture just drew me in. I love the dramatic lighting and textures! Not to mention, I'm delighted by the action captured in the picture. It's absolutely fascinating -- I feel like every time I look at the picture, something new jumps out at me.

... bizarre and delightful. I'm especially fond of the dusky texture that's going here and how the liquid looks like molten glass being tossed fresh from the furnace.
