:bulletblue: Greetings, peoples!

:bulletblue: A bit of an obscure one this time, so bear with me. ;3 A secret gallery I frequent, sets bi-weekly prompts, this time it was ‘Brothers’… so I decided to lob a single stone at two bunnies - both the weekly prompt as well as the desire to do some Darkwing Duck fanart - a superb Disney cartoon series from the mid-nineties.

:bulletblue: Here, you see Darkwarrior Duck and Negaduck in the middle of a mild disagreement. Although, they aren’t technically brothers, they are in fact alternate reality twins …think Spock with a goatee. The relevance is in the fact that although Negaduck was the evil twin who’d rather solve a problem with a chainsaw, Darkwing Duck (older version of whom you see here) has displayed plenty of extremes of behaviour himself. Certainly enough to show that he isn’t all that different if pushed.

:bulletblue: In the episode ‘Time and Punishment’, Darkwing’s adopted daughter vanishes due to a time-vortex, only to re-appear many years later to see what effect her absence has had on her father. The usually vain detective has degenerated into an insane do-gooder who rules his city with an iron fist, dealing hard punishment for even the smallest of trespasses …think, execution for not having the right change. He even goes as far as to aim a loaded gun at his daughter’s head, fully intending to use it. …Disney at its best…nyaw!.

:bulletblue: Nothing too fancy technique-wise, but I did pen-tool the entire drawing to give it that cell-frame look… complete with badly-drawn dramatic background. Pen-tooled lineart made it very easy to apply colour holds (modified line-colour to supplement the shade).

Hope you enjoy.


:bulletblue: Photoshop 5 hours.

I used to love DarkWing Duck. When I was in kindergarten, I actually went as him to the Halloween party. Good times. :D (Big Grin)

Amazing job! I personally always wondered about the more dark aspects of the darkwarrior reality

There was a time when cartoons didn't think their audience stupid and understood that kids can and NEED to handle darker stories.
We are definitely returning to that hidden maturity in our current cartoons, like Adventure Time for example. :)

one is a psychotic maniac with a chainsaw.

the other one is a vigilante gone horribly wrong.

Good old Disney channel. For the longest time they didn't make them like they used to... but then Adventure Time came along, eh?

I think, that if Darkwarrior didn't have his metal robots, never be on top.... poor Negaduck \:T

Methinks, they became as bad as each other at that point.

I can easily picture Negs saying something like, "See you in hell, you knob."

Epic awesome! I love the fiery background - it suits the atmosphere perfectly.
