I love playing around with different styles and using Giant Bomb as my muse.

EDIT: Now with more Alex going to New York and FUN!

So awesome. Jeff looks especially perfect. Great work! :D

Is Ryan holding an old-style mic or is that a shake weight?

#7 Posted by DarthOrange (3498 posts) -

Wait, where is Vinny getting licked?

#8 Posted by Kiri90 (251 posts) -

That's awesome, man! Great job!

#9 Posted by NegativeCero (2927 posts) -

Looks good. Giantbomb, inspiring artists since 2008.

Looks great, but who is that holding up the Bomb?

#13 Posted by medacris (611 posts) -

Pretty damn adorable. I love it!

Pretty sure it's (Hardcore) Dave. 
 
 
Is it bad that I know specifically what shirt Ryan is wearing?
#15 Posted by RoboRobb (1051 posts) -

Awesome. Ryan is especially amazing

#16 Posted by face15 (1244 posts) -

@ajamafalous: Oh yeah, that makes sense.

And, no. That's basically the only shirt he ever wears.

#17 Posted by ajamafalous (11591 posts) -
@Valames: Any chance you could extend it into some wallpapers (specifically 1920x1080 for me, at least)? I made a crude version in paint but the orange doesn't completely fade into the blue background before the edge of the image, so there's a vertical line where the orange fade just abruptly stops when I color the filler space blue.

In his Gameshark-slot.

#19 Posted by AlisterCat (5398 posts) -

Is that hardcore dave on the bottom?

#20 Posted by TeflonBilly (4722 posts) -

Nice pic! If I wer to level on complaint against it, it's that Ryan looks little too much like taht Aris creep. Dude's beard isn't that huge and Ryan himself is stockier, not that wide.

Cool baby is cool.

#22 Posted by TruthTellah (7653 posts) -

I like this. This is a good thing.

If I had any critique, it would be the GiantBomb text and the kind of explosion filter in the back. It just doesn't look as lovingly crafted as the characters. Also, I thought that was Vinny at the bottom at first, but that's more of a nitpick than a critique.

Great job, man.

Nice one bruva.

#24 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

@cyraxible: It's either an old mic or a shake weight with a pube stuck to it, the choice is yours.

@DarthOrange: He's not being licked, he's being tasted. But in reality, I needed an aesthetically pleasing place to put him, and that was the best spot.

@ajamafalous: I will try to get that done for you tonight when I am with my drawing stuff.

Thanks a ton, and if you can't, don't worry about it; I can deal.

@ajamafalous: Sorry this took so long, the wife had me out all week watching her buy stuff, lol. Hope this is what you wanted. Also be sure to check out the Alex cameo I did on my original post.

#27 Posted by Winternet (7936 posts) -

@Valames: These are pretty good. Keep it up.

#28 Posted by Cheesebob (1212 posts) -

I love it!

@ajamafalous well thanks a ton to you sir. If you hadn't asked for it to be wallpaper size I might have not gone back to it.
#34 Posted by SeverePapercut (89 posts) -

If I were to be picky I would say Ryan's shirt should be navy blue. But whatever, good job!

#35 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

@SeverePapercut: I did originally want to make it blue, but that would have been too many people with blue shirts, lol. But every time I think of Ryan wearing one of his "diamond" shirts, I think of the one in this image. Hence the color I chose.

#36 Posted by SeverePapercut (89 posts) -

@Valames: I see now, good choice then. Ryan's collared shirt and beard is comparable to Harrison Ford's smile and/or earring. You have both of these features of Ryan in here. Shit is hella good yo.

#37 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

@SeverePapercut: Right?! I can't think of him wearing anything else. And if you look at the I Love Mondays video, he is wearing the shirt in this picture! Love it.

#38 Posted by ProjekD (12 posts) -

Sweet drawing of the crew

#39 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

Thanks for all the feedback guys. It is always appreciated. I got a lot more criticism on this one than my others and I added more to it because of it. It was very nice.
I have drawn a few of these now and have always wondered if the guys ever see them. I hope they know it is in love. Lovely love!

Kickass.

#41 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (494 posts) -

Really, really cool. I wish there were a ton of awesome GB wallpapers like this.

#42 Posted by mister1337 (44 posts) -

@Valames: Nice, but I didn't think Jeff had brown hair and where is dave?

#43 Posted by selbie (1780 posts) -

This is awesome. Are you able to remove the grey background and make it transparent? PNG files allow that to happen.

It depends on what time of day you see Jeff :P

Dave is the hardcore duder holding up the Bomb
