Legendary Journeys by PhoenixFuryBane Legendary Journeys by PhoenixFuryBane
A long overdue gift for :iconcoloneltomato: who wanted a picture of David Ryder from the MST3K episode "Space Mutiny" and Zap Rowsdower from "The Final Sacrifice" done in the homage of the box art from the game Contra. So, obviously that picture was used as direct reference for the poses and weapons. ;)

Weaponry, hands and clothing folds still seem to be my nemeses. I'll get you yet! :shakefist:

I think Blast Hardcheese and Rowsdower would have awesome and manly adventures, except for Blast's girlish scream

Now, back to work on commissions.

Could someone please mod the sprites for Contra so that they look like these two?  That needs to happen!

Its not just that... its that ubiquitous contra cover! I did a t-shirt design of bush/cheney using the same motif. On my old hard drive I will try and find it an upload it. (Yours is cooler)

"Oh baby, Rowsdower saaaves us and saaaves us and saaves, oh baby Rowsdower...."

I really like this because they look genuinely badass such that you forget what sort of movies they came from. They could also start in their own video game and it would be pretty great. I bet.

"You got mud on your face, you big disgrace, shoving those sandwiches into your face singing we will, we will. Rowsdower! SING IT!"

Thank you! I guess the guys deserve to look a little badass now and then, even if the movies they're in are decidedly...not. And I would totally play that a game with them in it. It would be awesome. :D

Who’s the villain in this movie, The Master? Dr. Z? Megalon? Whatever the case, I’m gonna go buy a ticket to see it, if my Canadian truck will start… Rowsdowe-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-r! Dang, it won't! Maybe I can hitch a ride with Megaweapon...

Megaweapon was busy watching the Space Children, so I rode Puma Man’s back to the theater. It was embarrassing because these turtle aliens looking for a lost laser saw me as they were hanging around with the Bloodbeast. The good news is, though, that when we got there Creepy Girl wanted to see that movie where Madison! uses Nick Miller’s time-transport to go to the future and save Aram Fingal’s Identi-Cube from Ro-Man. It was a great date, except Krankor was somewhere in the theater and wouldn’t stop laughing, and I was sitting behind Eegah. Uri the archiologist put some of Mike Nelson’s essence on the popcorn, though, so I'm a blonde now, but fortunately Space Chief loaned me his helmet so nobody even noticed…

Thanks, just a quick heads up about YouTube though, I hear that a lot, if not most of the MST3K vids on YouTube have either been pulled, or are in the process of being pulled. It's been speculated that its' due to some of those same eps being aired on HULU. (There are further unconfirmed rumors of a deal betwixt Best Brains, Shout Factory, and NBC/Universal who owns HULU...)

But seriously, this is very awesome, very creative, and very well drawn. Excellent job!
