Action Dawson: Quest for the Shrimp Baby by kP108 Action Dawson: Quest for the Shrimp Baby by kP108
Will Mike Dawson stroll quickly enough through the dark world so he can save shrimp baby ?* Will everything ever be explained to him ?* Will he ever succeed at the ring toss ?*

This is a fan art (can't believe I actually made that) of Mike Dawson of the game Darkseed, based on the hilarious "wrongpurae" from retsupurae personalities Slowbeef and Diabetus [link]

It was also an exercise to recreate a bit of Giger's art which I admire greatly. Of course it didn't come out nearly as good, and it was very rushed anyway (didn't want to spend a lot of time), so it's very sketchy and dodgy. But like Mr. Dawson says "well, nothing ventured !" (before going to rob some graveyard, that is)

PS: Also thanks to :iconalmightyramtha: for actually inspiring me to do a fan art of this, and I borrowed the "sad shrimp baby face" from you, if you don't mind !

The kanji says failure…I figured that out after I read the "no" that the asterisks referred to. Poor Mike and shrimp baby. :(
Mike would be good at The Perils of Rosella. You have to dig up a ton of graves in that game (and you don't get arrested for it!).
And ah yes, H.R. Geiger's art…it's good, and I think you did a good job trying to recreate the style. I like the way Mike looks in your picture a lot. He really looks like a cool guy. He just needs a biker jacket.
For some reason, when I look at the art in the Darkseed games, I get kind of nauseated…luckily that didn't happen for this picture, because I hate that feeling. I hate aliens and most everything to do with them (except in the Sims games), so it's a wonder why I'm so involved in the Darkseed games….

Maybe if Mike Dawson wins the ring toss 50 times while he's got the 7 Chaos Shrimp Baby Dools, he can turn super!?
Oh wait, he can't even win once.
I love the idea that he just took that ring and walked away with it after standing for ages in front of the ring toss game :V
