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.

I'm just wondering how she might look like if Doom Slayer(I hope maybe Daisy the Bunny will have easter egg in Doom Eternal)decided to put Super Crown(that one from New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe) on her head?
Even if currently Bethesda owns Id Software… they are the same.They just rebooted Doom classic series so in Doom universe(multiverse) it could be more like(Rick and Morty)Doom Guy and Doom Slayer are the same people,but from different dimensions even if Bethesda will probably never confirm this theory.Anyway do you guys think that real name of protagonist of Doom series is Stanley Blazkowicz?

Shows how Doom Slayer has a small kind and gentle core :), inside all this badass killing self of a cool dude :), just like Doomguy himself before.

12/10 for all of the effort made into this brilliant picture :D.

Doom Slayer will protect Daisy, let alone reunite her with Doomguy, then possibly clone her to get a rabbit for himself (I know it sounds weird, but Doom Slayer would like a rabbit as well, so why not? :)).

Keep up the awesome effort and excellent work :).

Props for remembering Daisy the Doom Bunny. I, along with many others, largely forgot about her, but it's admittedly been a long time since the original Doom. It's also an extremely well made piece of art; absolutely beautiful. My compliments. 

Now I find myself hoping that Doom Eternal has a 'Doom and Daisy' Mode you unlock after beating the game where you can play the game again, this time with your pet rabbit infused with ultra demonic powers that goes around hopping all over Hell one-shotting baddies by jumping towards them at high speed and tearing their throats out with her teeth; maybe entering a rage state when the Doom Slayer picks up a power, growing huge, and literally stomping on demons like Mario on Goombas or picking up imps and eating them like carrots. Gruesome yet adorable.

As a rabbit owner myself, I've always thought it really awesome that someone as hardcore as Doomguy would have a rabbit as a pet. 100 mad props for making this such and awesome picture!

See, the next game is coming out. The next game is basically Doom II. 

You KNOW they're going to work Daisy into it, and I'm half loving it, half dreading it. This is because we're going to see absolute suffering, and the pure RAEG that's going to come from it.

This is just beautiful on so many levels. Daisy is so cute. Love that little paw up on his finger. 
Also I thought this was legit some official piece until I finally found you as the source! Holy cow.

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

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. 
Nah I know you´re not on this site anymore but it just ins´t possible for Doomguy to die. Besides, I believe they are just different guys LOL.

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

Oh, and his family. :P

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.

I always found it funny that the Doom Guy avenged his pet rabbit. Gotta love the good old FPS days.

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.

i think doom 64 is the scariest one for one simple reason

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.
