get out of my dreams, get into rygar


a stupid picture made for the second edition of Brian Riggsbee's book about the famous folk-hero Rygar. I may have spent more time drawing this than the actual dumb video game took to get made!

That looks amazing! You clearly spent a lot of time on this! And it's NOT stupid!

bimshwel responds:

Thank you! I meant it to be a good kind of stupid appropriate for the subject matter.

Nice colors, linework, textures, and use of perspective. I really enjoy the composition of this piece.. Also, Rygar was one of my favorite NES games that I totally forgot about.. Finally, your choice of title was the cherry on top - shoutout to 1988!

bimshwel responds:

I am glad if you approve! Rygar has a regular and strange presence in my mind and so making a picture like this eventually was inevitable.

This right here is something to be preserved and cherished.

bimshwel responds:

Don't worry about that, I almost never delete anything, so this shall at least be preserved provided my hard drive does not get crushed by a meteorite.

the good memories

Oh man, talk about a blast from the past. Remember the dudes in bear skin that climbed into each others shoulders?

bimshwel responds:

I do remember them, yes! I was mainly concerned with the nes Rygar that I was more familiar with but I wanted to include a few of the arcade exclusive foes also so I drew a version of the stackable gremlins in the lower-middle-right zone, and then later decided to also add the Master System-only taller variant being disappointed by them.
