Commission: A Right Royal Punch-Up by MatthewSmith Commission: A Right Royal Punch-Up by MatthewSmith
And so we come to the main event!
 
This is the piece commissioned by Doppleganger55 for which the character of Beefeater was created – and as you can see, he’s a fairly formidable scrapper. There aren’t many folks who could go toe-to-toe with King Hippo in a straight-up no-frills slugarama, but the big fellow is clearly giving the conkless alien weirdo a run for his space-money. Hippo might become powerfully enraged when his crown gets knocked off (and even more so if it then gets inadvertently trodden on and squashed), but Beefy becomes equally affronted when someone puts a nasty dent in his bowler hat. From the looks of things, I’d say this match is going to carry on until we get a double-KO; it was only supposed to be a three-round exhibition fight, but they’ve been at it for 90 minutes now and no-one’s at all keen to be the one that tries to get in there and separate them…
 
For the first time in a while, this one is a fully pencil-coloured piccy (with hand-inked linework); no animals were harmed in the making of it, but my Burnt Ochre (876) may never walk again. Thoroughly cheered at the final result though, especially the fiddly Union Jack gloves and trunks. Blessed be the hallowed White Pencil of Highlighting.
 
Beefeater belongs to Doppleganger, King Hippo belongs to Nintendo, and a biff up the philtrum will belong to anyone getting infringey with either of 'em. So there. :icondoppleganger55:

Did you do the inking first, or the colored pencil? Very nicely done art!

Hard to tell who would win. But King Hippo kicked my butt plenty of times, so all my money goes to him. Great work here!!!

Ta very much! And yes, he can be a trickersome devil at times. At least when you finally knock him down he has the good grace to stay down...
