Serpentdriver by VanHeist Serpentdriver by VanHeist
"Hey there, ho there, holy man,
What you want with that sword in your hand?"


Obviously this is kind of a loose play on the legend of old Saint Pádraig banishing him some snakes from Ireland.  Very loose, barely touching... but related enough that I felt i'd finish it up and post it today. :P

I could say a lot about snakes and swords, monsters and men, pagans and christians, but I'm not learn-ed enough to wax for too long intelligibly. Just letting a picture kick a story for once. (Also, been too long since I've posted anything Bomango-monstrous.)

enjoy. party 'til yer green if you like. :salute:

This looks likes the teaser from every episode of Sword Art Online I've ever seen.

...that's a GOOD thing, by the way!

Reminds me of that one episode of Samurai Jack, where 2 water snakes came out to Jack along a coast and said that one of the heads had a portal to Haku, but he had to guess right and jump into of the serpents mouths. They both lied and he jumped out, cutting through both of the heads

Oh man, this is just begging for a size chart difference. The landscape really plays them up to be MASSIVELY BIGGER than what the eye can perceive. (jurassic park rearview mirror joke)

If I saw these two in my rear view mirror I'd slow down and let them catch me. I know that one head would probably want to eat me (gogo) but the other one might be able to save me.

WELL SHOOT THAT'S ACTUALLY KINDA SEXY.

Ahem.

THis is a REALLY interesting take on the mythology there; Gogo is a natural giant monster girl, and its utterly fantastic to see Didi getting in on the big awesome woman action :) The fact that they're joined at the hip is a nice reference to their origins, and reminds me of the curious bodies a lot of giants had in these myths.

I like to imagine that they became his allies or friends afterwards, regardless of myth occurances~

And I do love the idea of stuff like this happening in canon anyway; who's to say Gogo can't up and fuse with Didi for whatever reason? Or Didi become a giant robot woman. Because WHY NOT?

I like the little details you've added like the carvings in the wood. Is the particular rune that Gogo is holding significant? Ever thought about animating a little of Bomango? I think your drawing style would lend itself well to ze moving pictures. Reminds me a little of Wakfu :3 Anyhow, keep it coming!! : D

If I might make an artistic inquiry, how did you get the scales to look shiny in light but darker in the shade?
