Was gonna draw some Earthworm Jim fanart after the BattleToads one, but since it's Halloween I felt like drawing something from SplatterHouse series instead!

SplatterHouse is actually much like Doom, but instead of using guns you smash demon mugs with your bare hands and two by fours the majority of time!.. Sometimes you do find a badass shotty or chainsaw, so the Evil Dead influences are very strong and clear in both series :thumbsup:

Inspiration!

Whoa, now this is a treat!

Didn't expect to run into this today and rather delighted how bloody and so on par it feels to the original game.  Superbly messy, gory and just full of red, this is amazing on your part KernaaliTanuli and kudos to such a good an very nicely focused scene with Rick and Jen.

Love that whole sea of enemies, the pile of corpses that sits behind Rick and most of all the giant flesh demon as it rises from back along with all the hints of the infamous Splatterhouse itself!

You really did some research to get this all done and love the nice stylization of it to make Rick feel like this monstrous beffy badass, Jen with her very scanty and noticeable bust to the creepy and faceless feel of the monsters that slowly try and surround them both!

Think what makes this work so damn well is the sea of red coming from the lighting and love the way you were able to use the many different shades of red along with the hint of darkness for again the touch of the Splatterhouse and the graveyard in the back.  Even neater how you lighten up the visuals with Rick to make him stand out in the center of the image and just immediately draw your focus into the madness he's gotta face.

Again I say a hats off to this incredible piece of fanart. Sure the creators of the game would give massive praise to see artwork of this caliber being made to praise this epic game. *applauses*

Really glad ya enjoyed and spotted all the little details there!

This was pretty much a mishmash of all the SplatterHouse games, I took stuff from every single one and mixed it all up in on picture!

Love those games and wish there was more of them :thumbsup:

A pleasure to have pointed out all the details you cared to add!  Not everyday get to see epic Splatterhouse of this caliber!

Agreed with you too there aren't as many games out there like Splatterhouse.  But makes more reason to credit and remember them for the charm they had to show off.  And hey, if you're in for some twisted/violent fun I might recommend some Killing Floor 2! ^=^

Glad to hear people enjoy my stuff :thumbsup:

And I do love me some Killing Floor games. Both gore and gun play are topnotch.

Gotta say, that is one kickass pic of Splatterhouse you cooked up there! Out of all the Splatterhouse games, I like the 1988 one the best!

Awesome, ultraviolent stuff, sir! Very nice. :D

Funnily enough, I actually saw one of this guy's voice actors, Jim Cummings, last May at MCM. Really cool guy, does his job well.

I am DISAPPOINT YOU NO DRAW MAH BOI, JIM!! Hahaha J/K (You better get on that though) Awesome pic with the composition here though.
While the gameplay isn't anything special, it's quite fun seeing a Jason brute beat up monsters to a pulp! Also press up for some amusement lol

The Mask is pretty great in 2010's game :lol:

SplatterHouse is one of those game series that have so much style and heart you can give them a pass on the gameplay department. Would be neat if we got a new 2D beat em up style SplatterHouse sequel with some proper improved gameplay, though :thumbsup:
