goofer the gravemonster!


just when you thought it was safe to be dead...

out comes goofer the gravemonster! armed with dual spades of exhuming and a nasty potion of resurrection. goofer hobbles around graveyards digging up bodies and using them in his crude arcane experiments.

goofer also has some poisonous fangs in his un-holy arsenal that inflict horrible necrosis on any poor soul slow enough to get pegged by one. but really when push comes to kill, goofer is all to eager to dole out some shovel slaughter and has been seen whirling around in a murderous rage, shovels outstretched as his enemies rain down in glorious chunks.

While a very strange picture, it's still very nice to look at. My favorite part is how there are so many of the little things in this that you can see. This guy has four spike bones as weapons on his arm. There even seem to be bones rising out of the ground. The two shovels are a nice touch, or are they weapons? Either way, they look cool.

I'm glad this appeared on the front page. He looks like he has a hole on his back somewhere. With all the spikes coming out, that would make sense. A little too much negative space, but still great. Even his toenails are nice and sharp!

hey thanks!

goofer was done quite a while ago when i was still figuring out what kind of style I wanted to make my own. He is definitely in the direction that I ended up in. Thanks again for another thoughtful review!



It looks to me like a demented cousin of Dad 'n' Me. Great artwork.

jouste responds:

haha thanks! i do love dad n' me. perhaps it influenced this drawing as well :D


WTF!? This Is The Face Of AWSOMNESS!!!

OMG!! AWSOME ART!! BUT,i dunno where, but i've seen his mask before! cant remember............... :(

But still,....... madness!? THIS...IS...ASWOME!!

jouste responds:

haha awesome!

yeah his mask might be from something else but i haven't seen it before. thanks for the highscore spartaman!


Total Genius

just like all your art , this is totally awesome.

jouste responds:


so glad to hear that you think so!


Awesome like usual.

I must say despite you're shortage on time with perfectioning your latest drawings its still awesome, it has a cartoonish feeling but still hulking out like a badass monster you'd see in detailed game concepts!

Besides.. who wouldn't want to control a monster that's dual wielding 2 massive spades.. one alone hurts like hell already, bwohohoho.. that should be in LoL, I always think it lacks undead champions to begin with.

Good job like always!

jouste responds:

yeah there isn't to many undead cool dudes in lol.

thanks for digging the stuff i've managed to get out. i know poeple aren't as big fans of it but realistically its all i can get out for now.

thanks so much!
