Killer Penguin by GoldeenHerself Killer Penguin by GoldeenHerself
There seems to be a classic theme of penguins with weapons and other methods of destruction going around deviantART these days. Just search on "penguin" and you will find such things as [link] and [link] , and perhaps more impressively: [link] And then there is [link] which is just over the top. I don't know who started this trend (though I have a feeling `yrindale might have had something to do with it), but, I know a good idea when I see one, so I thought I'd make my own version of the Killer Penguin.

This little guy is ready for action in a big way: he's got Halo 1's shotgun, Gordon Freeman's crowbar, Ichigo's zanpakutö (sword), eleven (count them) fragmentation grenades, and the Red Hero Headband of +20 Badassness.

Ph34r h1m.

Watercolors on 10"x6" illustration board. Inked with microns and Faber-castell brush pen + white acrylic ink. Art by me. Print will be available soon.
Enjoy. :heart:

Please help yourself to Google and search on Half Life or Half Life 2. The Wikipedia article should have all the info you need. :)

There's a reason for that.

There is also a reason why penguins live in cold, uninhabited areas.

/me they're building WMD silos

I must have missed that one: I was just linking those I found on the first page of results after searching on "penguin" because I was in a hurry. ^^

Someone should make a gallery of these things.

This...has a deeply significant meaning to me. I shall :+fav: this. Excellent work.

Little critique, also. Shotguns fire [link] this

And pistols or rifles fire normal cartridges, which would be rim-up, point-down if carried in a belt, as our friendly iceburg dweller here has, like so; [link]

Shotshells, which can also be carried in a belt, would also be rim-up.

And thanks for the crit and ref pics, but, you see, this is a penguin, and they do things a little differently from us. If you want, you can take it up with K.P here, if you like. ^^
