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 love this. Just goes to show. Every man is strong and s badass, but when the bunny enters the picture there is a soft spot.

The fact that you HAND Painted this badarse piece is impressive, digital I would just casually accepted very nice but dude mad props bro. And yeah I totally like the idea of Daisy the Doom Bunny. I hope she makes a come back. Like with him saving Vega and the original origin in the Doom Bible about protecting innocent lives by putting his CEO in a body caste, I like the fact that Doomslayer isn't just all about the violence the whole point of it that makes him a hero is the fact that he does care about life.

If doom 2016 came after doom 2 in some timeline then daisy is already dead, killed by hell.

Apparently there is an easter egg in Doom2016 that there's a missing pet poster for Daisy if you know where to look. And while I think the jury is still out on if it's Doom4 or not, I'm thinking with Doom Eternal is officially confirming it is the new modern Doom 2. So there's chance Daisy might come back, and hey, if anything he could always have another pet bunny.

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 www.reddit.com/r/Doom/comments… 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.
