Torpedo by Ramón Pérez




i've been traveling for the past two weeks and try as i might i couldn't get a rocketeer done to post last week, which saddened me immensely (i think i'll have to sneak one in when i can) but there was no way i was gonna miss a chance to try my hand at torpedo!

my train arrived back in town earlier this evening and i raced, luggage in tow, to my studio before going home just so i could get my contribution done. even though it's the a.m. hours of monday - i haven't gone to bed yet so it's officially still sunday in my books.

in the end, here's my tip of the hat to abuli, bernet, & toth... hope you enjoy.

Awesome! The bodies really look crumpled! Perfect!

Mitch Gerads said...

Totally wicked suh-weeeeeeet, Ramón! My absolute favorite part about this piece is you can see how much killing this "pile-o-dudes" has taken out of him. He looks exhausted, and rightly so!
