“Don’t think I’ve forgotten you, boy. Only those who know the name of this place can pass and I don’t grant special privileges to heroes...” One of my favorite video games of all time is Rayman 2: The Great Escape and yet I barely draw any fanart for this game. I decided to fix that just a little bit today by drawing my favorite part of that game; when Rayman has to deal with the rather surly Guardian of the Cave of Bad Dreams, who we learn in a later game’s instruction manual that he once fought Rayman as the First Bad Dream. I imagine him playing Guardian is punishment from Polokus for trying to take over the Glade of Dreams and Jano is more than a little grouchy about the whole arrangement...

Me, as a baby: R....R..
My parents: Oh god! She's gonna say her first word! What is it gonna be? Red? Rain?
Me: R...R...Rayman, look what the pirates have done to our world...A planet of anguish and pain, haunted by evil. A dark place, teeming with fierce monsters. Nothing can stop them, now that they've captured you. They've taken everything, and reduced our people to slaves. The robots search for innocent prey. In the chaos, they exploded the Heart of the World. The 1000 Lums of energy which form it have been scattered. We are getting weak. Soon, it will be too late... You must escape, Rayman. You are our only hope!
