Mancubus by IzzyMedrano Mancubus by IzzyMedrano
My version of the Doom monster from games of yore. Testing for id, so I figured I'd share the wealth.

Terrifying interpretation, love the burnt skin  and cybernetic stitching.

They're very hard to defeat but too bad they can't pick up anything because they don't have hands they were replaced with cannons.

didn't I see this thing while playing doom 2? 
kdpxva Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2016
Yup. The Mancubus is in every Doom.
DashieSparkle Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That'll be pretty cool if he looked like that in Doom 4
kdpxva Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2016
I like Doom 4's version better. Super ugly and grotesque. Gives off a real feel of gluttony.

I just stumbled on this... I freaking love it... I made the original models for ID for Doom 1 and 2.. I am thinking about revisiting this character myself and was looking to see what other folks have done with this guy ... looking for inspiration ..and this is exactly that. Great job!!

That's awesome man!  Thank you very much for digging it.  I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see what you build now!  Thanks for being part of such an important element in gaming history, G! :D

Pretty cool, but I miss the classic fat-man demon face. Even so this is better than that goofy elephant looking design from Doom 3.

So cool.. i love all of the designs for the Doom monsters.. they're all so creepy, yet badass.
mergener Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011
I guess then that they would like something more ''bloody'' if you know what i mean. But i still didnt understand how they didnt considered your mancubus its freaking awesome!
mergener Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011
My god. This is a good reference for the mancubus for doom 4. Send it to ID!
IzzyMedrano Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Professional Artist
I already did. It was my test to get a job there. They did not hire me. LOL
Wow, they suck. Even the actual creator of the original doom 2 mancubus praised you and based on the looks of it, he may have created this account on deviantart just for the purpose of leaving a few comments like that one on top notch works of art, only the cream de la cream, though a few years earlier than that one so it couldn't have been for that specific comment (also, if you can believe he is who he says he is, anyone could have created that account and he said he created the model for doom 1 as well, but mancubus wasn't in doom 1 plus he has no art posted on the account, surely he would have put SOMETHING up from his portfolio as an auspicious artist, so I'm suspicious, but anyway) and with good reason. It just goes to prove something I have said for a long time: being the best isn't good enough.

It was my favorite monster from the game, possibly tied with the arch-vile, and yours is way better than ID's. The tentacle face in doom 3 just made me think of Dr. Zoidberg. Though really what was most memorable of both the doom 2 and doom 3 mancubi was the audio. The "undemilo" sound from 2 and the deep yowl in doom 3. Ahh, I remember the first time I faced them in doom 3. It was the best monster video intro. It seems like it was just earlier today. I actually killed all 3 that were in the room, with almost no health left the whole time, like 6%, by zapping their slow-moving butts with the plasma gun, while hiding behind a wide post or something and going around it and just coming into line of site to shoot a few times. And then, at the very end, a stupid small fry killed me.

Good job though man, you are awesome.

The texture kind of makes me think of a dead whale. Kind of fitting, if you ask me.

Very nice job! I'm gonna go draw me one of those myself.

Excellent detail and style, the contrast in colors is just great. Kinda wish it had a face though.

With this much skill around the place, how can my drawing skills even begin to compare?
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2009
Kudos on the work on the gun.
Well done.
Lunchworks Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2009
If you haven't get the books based on the classic game of Doom. Best Sci Fi I've read.

Love how the main marine Flynn Taggart first can only describe these guys as "fatties"!

Awesome rendition!
Zocker4ever Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2009
Wanna pwn it with my plasma gun!

Much better than the orginal design.
Vladimiravich Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2009
The first time I saw a mancabus in the doom 2 I nearly had a heart attack. (I was around 8 at the time) The second time I saw one in Doom 3 I also nearly had a heart attack. Your rendition of this monster does it justice for the epic level of fear this thing invokes. Two thumbs up for the awesome design!
