WHAT'S A WEBSITE!

Drew this listening to tonight's Bombcast. It feels slightly weird drawing fanart for advertisements but I couldn't get the image out of my head of Vinny as a literal small business man. Hope you enjoy!

That is my favorite piece of fan art in a while, nice job. Plan on doing one for Jeff? I picture him as a door to door sales man in the ads, don't know why really.

#2 Edited by Quantris (313 posts) -

Hmm...I always picture a really behind-the-times business man behind Vinny's voice. Like, his arms are full of envelopes and he's got a stamp stuck to his forehead or something, and he's talking on a flip phone.

Regardless, really well done picture!

I like the art style. Good job.

I feel like that drawing is going to open up like a greeting card. And the inside says something like

"...STOP GOING TO THE POST OFFICE!

GET WELL SOON."

It's great.

That's awesome. It's like a Mini Caravella and his Small Business Man persona. Haha. Thanks for sharing. The suit and the gold watch are perfect.

You see this watch? This watch costs more than your car.

Great job on this. I, of course, would like to see more of this.

I need to learn how to draw, you guys are awesome.

Small Business Man is my favorite Persona 4 NPC.

I had a feeling he'd garner some attention and love; their dumb ramblings about random SBM antics are usually quality stuff.

Also, this depiction looks like a Spelunky character. Just putting that out there, and implying heavily there should be one made.

I could see "Small Business Man" having a flip phone from the early 2000's and wearing a watch for it's intended purpose (telling time).

Small Business Man would be great in Spelunky. He's got to reach the post office at the center of hell!

Next there should be Jeff looking like a rich businessman with a gold watch and an expensive suite.

Wait... post office?! Oh man, you gotta get onto Stamps.com!

only giantbomb could create a fanbase out of their ads (maybe steve austin)

#27 Posted by preheatedbibby (48 posts) -

Super good

#28 Posted by cooljammer00 (2017 posts) -

Ah, so he's a "small" business man.

Love the ads. If you're listening to the premium Bombcast, you're missing out.

The only thing that could make it better would be a hat.

I'd exclusively use a Small Business Man Spelunky skin.

That... is... AMAZING. I don't think it's weird to make fan art like this. Hell, I'm working on one right now featuring the obscure Roscoe the Alligator: King of the Everglades. Seriously great work duder. You absolutely captured Vinny's likeness.

#33 Posted by TheHT (11689 posts) -

Nice work duder!

#34 Posted by Nev (558 posts) -

This is perfect. Nicely done, sir!

#35 Edited by MasterBrief (226 posts) -

So is it true if your a member you don't hear those little ads? I rather like them. Great work by the way, love it.

#36 Posted by TheHT (11689 posts) -

@masterbrief: There's a separate ad-free bombcast uploaded as well, if someone really doesn't want to hear them.

All I know is that at PAX, I heard a few chants for "PunMaster" but also a few "Small Business Man!" chants.

Someone needs to make a figure based on that drawing cause I need a small business man Vinny on my shelf.

So cool.

I imagine Jeff fan art would resemble the monorail guy from The Simpsons.

#41 Posted by Dr_Monocle (120 posts) -

This made my day, duder!

I think putting him a line at the post office would be perfect.

This. A regular dude in his 60's running a mom and pop shop.

So where's the related picture of Dave the Intern?

#46 Posted by Itwongo (1236 posts) -

I always picture Jeff in a cheap suit with a bow tie when he does these ads

#47 Posted by afabs515 (1264 posts) -

I laughed. Love it!

#48 Posted by Regal (434 posts) -

Love the style.

If there were to be a live-action adaption of these ads (which seems inevitable) I always pictured them being directed by Wes Anderson because he could capture their quaint and cute essence like you have with this drawing.

Great job! It looks great!

#50 Edited by KirkyX (138 posts) -

GIant Bomb's the only Video Game Website that could ever hope to produce a line of ads good enough that the community would actually start drawing fan art of them.

...

(The picture's great, by the way. I'm picturing him standing on top of a gigantic - normal sized - envelope.)
