Art for Craterchest!

Title: Left Fort Dead
Gift for: craterchest
Artist: sleightofhand
Rating: PGish
Fandom: Team Fortress 2 / Left 4 Dead

Artist's Notes: I can never resist a good mashup. The best part is, I'm sure there's a mod out there somewhere that makes this game actually possible.
Summary: Looks like BLU has a few new tactics up their sleeves...

Ooh, fun picture (erm, maybe not the right choice of word for a picture with spurting blood and fire but you know what I mean XD)! I like the composition a lot and the colors are really well chosen. Also, the little things like the skeletons showing from behind the fire are just awesome touches.

HAH! Well, if it helps, both of these games are incredibly fun even though they both feature lots of spurting blood (and occasionally fire).

I fought a lot with the colours, so I'm so glad you like them!

Hahaha, this is fantastic! I love the pyramid composition and the swing of that bat!

Thank you! I went back and forth on which TF2 characters to include, but once I got the t-ball head idea for the Scout, I knew he was definitely in.

Hah, thanks! I do like my violence gleeful, so much more fun that way. :D

Wow, thank you very much! It's hard to imagine a better compliment than that. :)

Holy shit, I love this! The action, the colors, the composition--everything is so energetic and fun to look at it! Makes me wish I weren't too scared to play Left 4 Dead. :)

Oh man, PLAY IT! It's great! I'd definitely do it with friends, though, much more fun (and less scary). I don't think there can be a better bonding experience than surviving the zombie apocalypse together. XD

Thank you! They are both such frenetic, action-packed games, so I did my best to get that vibe across in a still image. Glad you like it!

haha, awesome! never really played video games myself - but I love the color scheme in this, and it is certainly action-packed goodness XD

Hey, thanks! If you are ever looking to get into video games, I would certainly recommend either of these as a good place to start – well, probably more Left 4 Dead, the online play for Team Fortress can be pretty mean to new folks. But I'm glad you like the picture!

I love this! so fun and adventuresome, even if it is bloody and full of torches! WHOO! :D :D :D

I like to think that whenever zombies are involved, blood + fun become OTP. :D Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad you liked it!

Oh damn, this is fuuun. I'm really digging the colour scheme here, with the purple and orange-red. And great composition!

I'm really happy you like the colour scheme – I tend to use a lot of blues, and I worry that I rely on it a bit much, so I tried to do something very different for this one. It was a mental hurdle, convincing myself that orange and purple could look good together. So glad you think it worked out! Thank you!

I really like the pyramid composition and the color scheme.

This is just epic! And I don't know what this says about me personally, but I have the biggest smile on my face just from looking at it now ♥ Utterly awesome~~

Oh man, I don't know what it says about me, but I did keep cackling to myself as I drew it. So maybe we're in the same boat!

Thank you! So glad you like it.

On a side note, I am in such agreement with your icon right now. That game has eaten my life. XD

Oh, thank you very much! So glad you like it. There are always a million crazy (and usually violent) things happening all at once in both of these games, so I did my best to stay true to that.
