LeChuck: I will then take your bones, still alive and in great pain, and make them into a chair. I will call it "My Screaming Chair". Every day I will sit in it and listen to you scream. Any questions?
Monkey Island 2 was my favorite game in the entire series. From goofy and bumbling, to sinister and even scary, LeChuck's lines were always the best in my opinion.
Awesomely creepy. Critique (because I can't fill out a real one without a paying DA membership): The lighting is excellent; combined with the expression and pose on the face LeChuck really looks like a shuffling dead mass of rotten flesh. The details on his costume and rotting bits are intricate and well-done. I like this one a lot, in case you couldn't tell.
Amazing work! Truly inspiring! And so much better than the actual LucasArt "Special Edition" artwork...which was too much "illustrator/photoshop"-like. The painting look here is a nice throwback to Steve Purcell's actual work.
Thanks! Monkey Island 2 was my favourite of the series. I just loved how it looked and how the places felt like people had lived in that pixel world! The third game was beautifully drawn but the thin characters didn't tickle my fancy as much as MI2 style
Btw. Steve Purcell continues to do inspiring stuff, I frequently check out his blog for new work: [link]
