DevilJoe by LukeTheRipper DevilJoe by LukeTheRipper
Deviljho from the Monster Hunter series for :iconoctohat:


This one is a super old raffle prize, so old that the person I drew it for has left DA years ago... and several times... which is not helping when I try to finish these and feel at least a bit better about myself finishing 'em... heh, I guess at least it shows I DO remember about all the requests and stuff, even the oldest ones...

So anyway, barely played MH, as it didn't really appeal to me (the newest one looks like fun tho, might try it out when I get a PS4). So I wasn't all too familiar with Deviljho, but the design was awesome and equally fun and challenging, the fact it was mostly built from spikes and fangs was super fun as I haven't done something like that in a while, but the dinosaur-like anatomy was hard to grasp and picture properly. I think I did pretty OK, but again, I can't really tell whether I did him properly, so I'll let my MH-fan freidns decide XD

Awesome!  I never have played Monster Hunter as of yet, so I'm unfamiliar with the content.  But this is a fantastic piece!

Well, that makes two of us XD
I've tried playing MH, but it just didn't appeal to me (though I have to admit, the MH Stories spinoff is really great). But still, the monster designs are really impressive ^^

Is it a game you must play in a team with others, or can you be anti-sociable like me, and play solo?
They must be impressive, as this piece you have done clearly shows that.

MH can be played solo, but is much easier when raiding with other players. The problem I had with the game, was that the equipment system, character development, etc. were far too detailed and complicated, which might appeal to some and are important to fully create your ideal character, but it just gets in the way of immersion for me... plus, takes way too long considering you'll be doing all this just to die on stronger monsters and re-do all of it just to properly alter your approach.

Monster Hunter Stories (for 3DS) on the other hand, is a monster breeder rpg, where you fight using animesque versions of regular MH monsters. And so far it's a really amazing game ^^

And trust me, they are. I recommend watching some gameplay vids, preferably from the battles alone (one boss rush youtuber I watch did a whole video with all MH World monsters, I can show you if you want).

By all means, send me a link.

Tbh though, I doubt I'll have time to check out MH.  I just reactivated my W.o.W account, for the latest expansion, of which I have hardly played it anyways I think I've fainted. 

But this drawing of DevilJoe is superb.  Such detail, especially in the mouth area.  That must have taken ages!

Oh, I am not trying to get you into MH, like I said, I'm not into those games myself (yeha, except for that one spinoff). Just recomending to see the monsters, cause they are really amazingly designed ^^

And this one surprisingly didn't take as long as it might seem, it was actually very fun drawing him. I usually have more problems with human faces and poses than with such monsters ^^

PS. And his name is "Deviljho", I only titled the art "DevilJoe" as a joke on his name XD

Haha, nah that's ok.  I have heard of MH before but just never really bothered looking into it.

It's an amazing drawing nethertheless, showing real aggression.  Deviljho = DevilJoe Giggle

Well, the monsters in MH are all about aggression, so kinda wanted to capture that ^^
Plus, this particular monster fights by clobbering you with corpses of other monsters, now THAT is aggressive XD

Oh man, my nemesis. I've lost count how many times I've been killed by a Deviljho. You definitely captured it's ferociousness. Awesome piece! This is super detailed and I totally love how it looks. I wonder how a Zinogre would look like in your art style? Haha :D

The World Eater! So voracious, it eats its own tail when you cut it! :headbang:

Looks really nice in your style! I think you should draw more spiky dragon types. :D

Haha, now that's a bit of trivia I didn't know XD
Was kinda hoping you'd like it, as one of the big MH fans I know, your opinion was an important one here ^^

And there's plenty of things I should draw more... or just draw more |D
And besides, I'm not a big fan of dragons, I prefer my monsters fur-covered... which reminds me, that the most majestic creature of the FF series, and a furry & spiky one at that, is going to grace MHW with it's presence soon >3

Haha yeah, it will even eat the corpses of other large monsters you kill. Even the live ones which are just captured in traps! It's one hardcore mofo! :lmao:

Your style looks fantastic on fur too though, so I guess it's not much of a loss. And yeah, I heard about Behemoth! I really should get back to playing MHW soon.

Pickle dragon, yeah, that nickname and the fact it supposedly uses other monsters as "weapons" by swinging them with it's maw, are the only things I know about it XD so I kinda improvised here.
