man's-adventure

movie archetypes that’d be fun to play as in a fighting game:

  • John Woo gunslinger
  • Unstoppable slasher movie “heavy” (pref in a non-MK game)
  • Haymaker-happy chair-slingin’ two-fisted man of adventure
  • Straight-up whirling-around wire-fu Wuxia fighter
    • Yunfei from SamSho was a good start

I’m trying not to rely too heavily on actual for-real hardcore martial arts movies so I’m drawing a blank, add your own or not


e: “guy played by pro wrestler” in a pre-’00s action movie. Just ridiculous deadlift throws and iron body no-sells all the time.

One of my history professors is this scarily intense German guy, and today we were talking about the peer reviewing process and how vicious some academics can get, so I casually asked him what the worst review he’d ever received was.

He became very stony-faced, looked off into the distance and said, completely deadpan and in his thick accent:

“It does not matter. They are dead now.”

I think my professor has killed a man.

Continuing my Adventure Zone art shenanigans, because you all had such a lovely response to my Taako design!  I know I said I was going to draw Angus next, but when I sat down to sketch last night I had a song in my heart.  And that song was the Fantasy Costco theme, so ya’ll are getting Garfield instead. Haha! I am absolutely one of the people who can’t help but see Garfield as a cat, but as much as the “necromancer lasagna cat” makes me laugh, I wanted to actually design a specific character for him.  Because I am terribly fascinated by Garfield’s character and ngl every time he comes around I laugh so much.  Good good weird creepy cat wizard man.
