Unexpected Resistance by Nimrais Unexpected Resistance by Nimrais
I don't think those bandits expected that their victim would throw pies at them to fight them off ... X)

This is a commissioned picture (by miceinblack on FA) featuring a white lion taur character named Lionel. The commissioner was so incredible patient with me. I don't know how long I have been working on this, but it took me several months to finally finish it. The steampunk/western theme of this picture was definitely something I don't draw every day. And the slapstick part with the pie was a funny addition to the picture, haha :)

If it is flying why do it need those heavy train wheels? Does the train need them to get up to 88 miles per hour?

I was thinking that the 'unexpected resistance' was that spinning wheel on the side of the locomotive...I mean no one would expect that to happen.

I admire the design of the locomotive here. I'm assuming the rotors are energy-based, but aren't enough to keep the engine off the ground by themselves, hence the thrusters aimed at the ground.

 

Also, pies for ammo. That is awesome. XP

Judging how much detailed this picture is, I wouldn't mind to wait months for it to be finished. Well, 2 is fine, but more than that... =\

Ooooh, yes! Actually the commissioner gave me a video snippet of that game as reference for the flying steam train. I just didn't realize that it's called Impossible Creatures :) Thanks!

You're welcome!

It's an older game now, but it's still a good one as it allows you to make some interesting hybrid critters. The campaign's pretty awesome too :-)

This is awesome. It reminds me of the show Firefly. You did a really nice job with the dust and smoke effects. I really like the characters' expressions. The guy with the pie coming at his face seems to be in disbelief that a pie was just thrown at him in a gun fight. The Lion Taur seems to be laughing, perfectly aware of the absurdity of bringing a pie to a gun fight. Then there's the guy to the right who just seems to be enjoying it all with his villainous grin. Really well done.

Nimrais Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! :) No, a taur has the 4 legged body of an animal (in this case of a lion) and where the head is, there's a torso. Here's the charactersheet of Lionel where you can see it very good: [link]
