The Fearless Monster Hunters by Elderscroller The Fearless Monster Hunters by Elderscroller
Another entry for the bi-weekly contest at :iconconceptworld: with the theme "Monster Hunters"

I had lots of ideas for this one, Vampire Hunters, Fantasy Monster Hunters, Cyberhunters... But it all came down to the same basic idea of some badass guy in a badass armor with lots of trophies/scars and lots of weapons.
But one of those ideas just kept crying out loud: A squad of monster hunter mice (the theme is plural after all :) ), hunting their sworn enemy: a cat.

First I wanted to put them into a fantasy setting, swords and all, but then I decided to put them into a posthuman world, where they have evolved, both physically and mentally.
They are scavengers, living on the garbage and rubble of the long gone human race. This garbage is their source of materials. This is why they are all equipped with slightly altered everyday objects.
Cats have become somewhat of a great threat. Slightly mutated and stronger, it requires special hunter teams to drive them out of their caves and exterminate them.

Software: Photoshop CS5
Time taken: around 20 hours
WIP: [link]

Depends on what you are referring to :) As for the contest, I got 2nd place. Regarding the battle in the painting, well...Im not so sure that all mice survived.

Well done on that second place, it is such a cool piece and very imaginative!
And I was originally referring to the painting, but since I prefer mice to cats, I'd imagine the mice called on reinforcements and outnumbered the cat lol
