Doom Slayer and Daisy by Xous54 Doom Slayer and Daisy by Xous54
A portrait of the Doom Slayer from DOOM (2016) holding Daisy, the rabbit of the original Doomguy. Painted on 16"x20" canvas using various brands of acrylic paint.

Although it's not been confirmed by any official sources that the Doom Slayer is the same person as Doomguy, I wanted to pair the two together since Daisy is referenced in one of multiplayer DLC maps. Whether you interpret this painting as Doom Slayer/Doomguy finally reuniting with Daisy or simply Doom Slayer finding the poor rabbit and wanting to protect her is up to you.

This took around 60 hours to complete, which doesn't count the time it took to make the original sketch and transcribe it onto the canvas. I painted for 12 days at about 5 hours each day, working on various chunks of the painting each session. Started with the head and finished with the super shotgun.

Overall I'm pleased with the end result, though I can never get good photos of my paintings so there's always glare in parts. Sorry about that.

I'd like to give thanks to the some model artists/model rippers out there whose images of the Doom Slayer model from the game provided great references for parts of the suit: BlueFlytrap998, Neverstops, lemon100.

No matter what the Doom Slayer will always protect those who cannot protect themselves
And whoever tries to attack that rabbit will know that hell is a vacation than a man protecting his pet

Don’t fuck with a grown man’s rabbit, they said. If you do, you’re gonna get the taste of the BFG9000.

Very cool painting, I will take he's Doomguy with Daisy rabbit.  Nice artwork job :thumbsup:

Hah, it was confirmed that Doom Slayer carries around a little talisman that is actually a rabbit's tail...DAISY'S TAIL.
Noghyi Featured By Owner Edited Apr 21, 2018
I think Doom Slayer must have taken that rabbit's tail from Doomguy's dead corpse, he found Doomguy's dead body, gave his silent respects to the man, and took Daisy's tail from Doomguy. Besides, Quake Champions and Doom 2016 are in different canons, Doomguy appears as a skin for Doom Slayer, along with the Doom Marine from Doom 3. Besides, We have not seen Doom Slayer's face, but we have seen Doom Guy's face, as well as the unnamed Doom Marine's face.

If there's one thing the Doom Slayer loves, it's Daisy.

Oh, and his family. :P

And Purging the demons of Hell, nearly forgot that eentsy detail.

DOOM is my favourite game
Evertide Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2017   Writer
The fact that Doomguy kicked Hell's ass again specifically as vengeance for his pet rabbit is almost too awesome for me to put into words.
Atheobodies Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2017
I always found it funny that the Doom Guy avenged his pet rabbit. Gotta love the good old FPS days.
SJRT Featured By Owner Edited Jun 22, 2017
This is very well done and fitting.  I would definitely purchase a print of this.

This is GREAT! I love it :) All Id Software needs to do as add Daisy to the sequel game (as a sort of 'Easter Egg")
That1Bot Featured By Owner Edited May 10, 2017
It's heavily implied that the Doom Slayer is, in fact, the original Doomguy, except he's older and angrier. Apparently, the ending of Doom 64 was canon: Doomguy decided to stay in Hell to ensure that the demons would never hurt anyone again. Doom 2016 adds onto this, stating that the demons- desperate and unable to kill him- pulled a risky gambit to lure the man into a trap: collapsing a temple on top of him...

...It failed to kill him, but they didn't have to fear him at that point, because he was still trapped under the rubble.

from all classics doom out there
i think doom 64 is the scariest one for one simple reason

I wish Daisy would appear as the Doom Slayer's hallucination X3

God damn this is beautiful, there is absolutely nothing I don't like about this masterpiece.
linuxUsr117 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2017
Amazing painting, and perfectly suiting; the Doom Slayer seems to want to by-standards, and won't allow innocence to be harmed, but more than happy to send Hell back to a place that even the most, and deepest of evils, fear.

And I thought Doom Slayer always cared about only killing. The Doom Song 
oODark-DawnOo Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2017
Well, you're wrong. He cares about humanity and his rabbit. His superior officer killed some civilians and he punched a hole through his skull. The fact that demons are threatening humanity is what pisses him the fuck off. He likes humans, he loves his rabbit and he hates demons.
Noghyi Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2017
I think you're talking about Classic Doomguy here. From what we've seen The Doom Slayer as, he's clearly a separate character from Doomguy himself. In the lore, it's mentioned he's been around for eons, if not for millennia. The way I view this artwork, is that The Doom Slayer has no idea who's rabbit this is, so he decides to take Daisy under his wing to keep a watchful eye over her.
Chiracy Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He's not "Clearly separate".
Noghyi Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2018
Well, Slayer is gruff, straight forward, honest to a fault, and he does not suffer fools lightly. Doomguy on the other hand, if we look at Brutal Doom, is just psychotic in his killings, and is a fucking lunatic.

You ever hear the phrase "A second in Hell is an eternity?"
Noghyi Featured By Owner May 5, 2017
No. And I don't plan on heading to hell for eternity anytime soon.

I had never heard about this rabbit before. Not to say that I mind but I would just have liked to know. 
Where did it come from?
Skribbulz Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
The Doomguy owned a pet rabbit before the events of Doom 1. During the ending, demons invaded Earth and killed, among other people, the Doomguy's pet bunny Daisy. In the ending of Thy Flesh Consumed, Doomguy vows revenge on the demons for killing his rabbit.
MagicWazard Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2017
That's funny!  I really need to get around to playing the new one...
