Speed Drawing/Painting.

Another in my series of "Travis vs. ______" series of No More Heroes fanart~ This time, the awesomely cool/sexy Death Metal... beholding his Holy Sword.

I wanted to show off Death Metal more than Travis in this picture... ohohohoh. Men with tight black pants are much love. Especially when they look like an anorexic Ganondorf.

♥ Death Metal.

Imagine if death metal had his own game on the ps3

That would be so badass...
[Save points would be ladies lying down in provocative ways, in their own little fancy boudoir rooms...]
And I wouldn't want to play a younger him, either. It should be the events just before Travis fights you. XD

Wouldn't that be splendid?

I mean he looks like what would happen if a video game protagonist finished his game, but had no idea what to do with his wealth

When I first saw this I couldn't help but sing in my head "Overcompensation!!" Look at the size of his sword.

You need to subtract a sword piece. There were only two + the handle...DEAR GOD I'VE MEMORIZED THAT SMEXY SWORD. Too bad he was the first boss. He was so badass.

Oh...and I just read your journal, and now I feel real bad. THE ART IS GREAT PLEASE DON'T HATE ME...I especially like this one, it gives Travis' view of his opponent, complete with a cool sun glare. And I love Death Metal's expression, makes him look cocky. Too bad he's about to die.

Please don't hate me..

Death Metal's another one of my favorites. Not sure where he is on the list, but he's up there. Alot of them are up there...except Destroyman. Watch out for his crotch lasers...the dang thing almost-- wait...anorexic Ganondorf?...Hey, you're right...

that image you are talking about is his official character artwork. Unfortunately there isnt any mention of slaves or whores of the like in his mansion, but he does have yakuza-type guys that fight you when you are in there. The girl only is shown as this artwork as a painting in his mansion, as well... tis a shame, I would've loved to see him getting some ACTION before Travis meets up with him... ohohohoho. it's so delicious.

God this IS hot! I totally agree with the men in tight black pants <3
I so hope you continue this lil series of yours. You have my support- and DO play that game as if your life depends on it. It's great and VERY well writen.
Also, go watch El Topo XD

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
El Topo? Please, continue.

Oh and don't worry, I pretty much have nightly rants with my sister which ensue No More Heroes fanart... I've already got twenty-four seperate illustrations [counting the three I've already posted on DA.] so they'll keep coming~!
The boss-fight illustrations only happen as I fight the boss, obviously, so it will take some time till I get to Destroyman! [whom I believe is next... ohohohoh, I can't wait.] But in the meantime I will be posting random art I've done, which can range from disturbing to silly. hehe.
and I LOVE Suda51/Grasshopper Studios... I love everything they do, hehe. One less company making cookie-cutter games that appeal to the masses and fits that niche of games for gamers who like to think, be weirded out, and distusted/amused. hehe.

dyko-chan Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2008
It's the movie that inspired Suda51 to make this game. You also may understand the games ending(s) better. Very suttle, but SO worth it! (plus that movie kicks some wicked ass!)
Allow me to quote it:

"The first duel is with a blind man with the voice of a woman, dressed in only a thong and guarded by a man with no legs riding a man with no arms."

Now you have no excuse to not watch it!
Ooh- The God of Underground Fandoms is looking down on you~! There needs to be more fanart of these series. Too many good looking characters; hats off to you.
(BTW- if your on the LJ- go plug yourself in the NMH commun, they'll love you <3 )

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oooh... really? I'll DEFINITALLY have to look into that! I like myself the idea of a thong-wearing woman-voiced man riding... another man with no legs and one with no arms?! OGOHOHOOHOHOHOHO... sounds RIGHT up my alley!!!

And I'll also have to take your suggestion! hehehe. I am usually not part of communities because I can't be very proactive in them... but if I can just post random art and comment sometimes, that'll make me happy... hehe.
And I am on teh LJ, what's the community name?

[hehehe, we're having a full-fledged conversation.. ohohohoh the miracles of art. XD;;]

dyko-chan Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2008
Ooh-I hope thats OK (I used to hate starting huge conversations on art pieces :/ )
But it can't be helped! So much of this game to talk about (such as, you know that hunk Death Metal is 55 years old and his real name is Townsted or something O_o ? I'm surprised hes english XD)
^ The advantages of beating the game... that and Travis gets fullbody tattoos <3<3

Anyways- the commun is very small and only like 5 people post and talk in it XD its over here -> [link]
Anything small is always huge (err wha-?)

hehe~ Tis perfectly alright, if anyone's so bored to read these comments they're find to do so... kehehe.
MMMmm... and yes, the older men in NMH is really what I'm all about... Death Metal, Dr. Peace, and the notreallyoldbutstill Letz Shake. Mmmm....

And I've seen the unlockables... thankfully the game that I was playing was a cleared game... so gogo superkatana and all of the outfits unlocked so I can choose everything to my pleasure... [Travis: Brown Jacket, Biohazard shirt, grey tinted glasses, black jeans... yum~]

Anything small is always huge (err wha-?)
Death Metal doesn't like this statement, it contradicts his sword... OHOHOHOHOHOooo... ^^

This game is simply awesome, and further proof that Suda 51 rules (it's sad how Japan treated him at the game's launch). Of all the assassins, I'd say Holly Summers (her prosthetic leg that doubles as a rocket launcher was enough to get me to play the game, aside from the fact Suda 51 was making it) was my favorite. Can't wait to see your Travis vs Holly picture.

hehe~ I will get to it! I Have to actually get to the fight itself before I draw an illustration, though, but I have already drawn pictures of Holly as par request of my sister, who is a huge fan of Holly.
You can see a snippet of art of her from her icon that I drew in accordance to mine. ^^ ;;
