Okay so, anyone who has the game Left 4 Dead in any form will completely get this. My brother and I got an Xbox 360 for Christmas and amoung two Lego games and a few other random ones, we got Left 4 Dead! BEST GAME EVER. We were going to get it for the PC originally so getting it was inevitible. :) I can't help but obsess over it.
And oh yeah, HOW KICKASS ACE I AM AT IT!
Seriously! See, Call of Duty games I wreak horribly, and even at Resistance I have major "suck" moments a lot but with Left 4 Dead I'm amazing! It's so cool! <3
So in the game you can get dual-pistols and then a primary. My favorite combo of weapons are the dual-pistols and the M16, but the M16 is really more of my secondary. I can't help but love the pistols! Unlimited ammo? Who WOULDN'T love that?! Plus I'm a pretty decent shot with them so it all works out. If the Horde gets too close I'll switch to the M16 (or Uzi which I use until I get the M16) but for the most part I'll use the pistols. Eric and I did "No Mercy" one time and he told me to just use pistols through the entire level so I could get the Achievement "Akimbo Assassin". Well...I not only did it completely but I braved a Tank or two with them too! ;) So as a proud pistol-user the "Akimbo Assassin" achievement is my favorite. <3
....
along with "Hunter Punter" of course. >w>
So yeah! Onto the actual picture, eh? Sorry for making you read all that jabber. ^^;
The picture actually took me....oh crap it's 6? =w= Well then, it took me three hours or so. Jeeze...And seven layers in Photoshop. :] But it was much fun to make it. I figured out the blur tool which came in handy for smudging the original shading at the end since it looked too "flat" after making all the dirt and stuff. I like the pose myself and even though the pistols look too cartoony, they're probably my best guns I've ever drawn! ^^" The bandages are also my favorite. When I first made them they came out real well so I decided to copy that type of color/shading for the rest of it to add dirt and stains and stuff.
And I know that when holding a pistol you wouldn't have your thumbs in that position since the gun could bite you or something but when not firing and in such a pose, it'd make sense. So nah~. I even thought of that.
Anything else to clog your brains with.......mmm...nope! Not that I can think of! Oh wait! I'm dressed like Zoey. I for some reason find her appealing to be. My brother called Bill, Louis kinda comes across as a weanie (despite how badass he truly is), and then it was a toss-up with Francis and her so I went with the classic "girl be a girl" thing and now she stuck. :] Mind you, I did everything from memory so if the outfit's off you can suck it. And the guns.....well, I just suck. >w>;;

Lol. For some reason I too also find her appealing. I always somewhat pick her. I think it's because she's the most presentable. After her, my next fav character would be Louis.

Thank you so much! You and Sky have completely made my night. <3
SPEAKING OF PARTICLES:

A neutron came up to a protron and looked at it odd. "What are you?" It asked.
"I'm a protron!" The protron replied.
"Are you positive?"

*knee-slap!* :iconimhappyplz:
