Lemming Valley Deluxe

A larger version of the Lemming Valley image I posted up a short while ago. Now, hopefully, this'll give everyone a chance to take a little closer look at the lives of Lemmings. Its not faultless but I hope the overall feel of it makes up for that.

When I was younger I was absorbed into Lemmings (not just the game itself but the idea of it). I did this for my girlfriend for her Birthday in 1998 I think. She's got another coming up soon.

Enjoy.

DON'T KNOW THE GAME...BUT, Love the social statement in regard to Lemmings... however, not sure many will get that. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WAS EVEN YOUR INTENT... But "lemmings" is the symbol of what our society has become...I wonder how many people of this generation even know what a Lemming is... HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE for me as far as the Artwork... I know this took allot of work, time, energy (I respect that, I'm an Artist myself) HOWEVER, it's too cute to make a social impact, if that's what your hoping for... and... if you have to label it to promote the message, well... enough said! ART, LIKE POETRY, IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK..DRAW THEIR OWN CONCLUSION... OTHERWISE, WHAT'S THE POINT? "RESEARCH, IS KEY" Try Googling "Lemmings" you may even gain new respect for your game!

No way! I too attempted to make something like this. Mostly line art as I don't recall finishing it much.

Excellent work here!

I also remember drawing multi-panel lemmings pictures during study hall when I was a kid, except they weren't this good. And here I was thinking that I was the only one. :)

I keep passing this by and never answering. There isn't a social message. It's a picture of Lemmings doing loads of different things... there's no hidden agenda. It's supposed to be cute.

Lemming? It's a small furry rodent.

I haven't had in a long, long time. If you try to keep yourself interested in the detail though and you've got time to do it it sort of draws itself though. Gotta appraoch it with a sense of fun or it can turn into a proper labour.
mmm,well it looks amazing, might give someing that detailed a try when i get the time.
You do know its MEEE dont you:)?

Im getting really good on photoshop and iv managed to do the backdrops for revlon all on my own and im proud of them:)go me!!

And if you still dont remember who i am i still owe you a fiver and i have your book still :)

Good work. Its great when it all comes together. Very nifty indeed. Have fun with it. I'm too rampacked right now to offer you any meaningful tutorial but if you have a question ask up. And yes you owe me my book and a fiver. What was the book again?
I am really enjoying it, its nice having a new way of doing something. completly different effect. love it :)

The book was dandy in the underworld. I really liked it. Since im a bit of a book freak i may have to go and buy my own copy just so i know its there if i want to read it again. hehe

Probably. I've lost track of them. There's a lot of lemmings doing a lot of stuff...

THIS IS AWESOME. I can't stop looking at all the little details.

Glad you're enjoying it. Might post a search list and see if people can find things on it.

wow, this looks like it was a lot of fun to do. I remember when I was young i would draw like these epic scenes with a ton of little details in them and i would always get so much enjoyment out of them. nice work man

Just trying to get back to that mind set. No rush. Pure enjoyment. Too easy to forget it as you get older.
