Hellboy vs Koshchei by mc-the-lane Hellboy vs Koshchei by mc-the-lane
This piece of high-brow fine art is a representation of the battle between liberal and conservative ideals in the winter of our economy. The skulls and tree represent our founding fathers, watching on ashamed and powerless as we sqabble against one another, as the government slowly chips away at the rights this country was founded on.

BUT! The sunlight is creeping over the crest of the hill, a new day is upon us! Will we (meaning hellboy and koshchei) put away our weapons and face the new day together? Holding hands? Or will the Baba Yaga fly her wooden ass in and fuck everything up? My money is on the Baba Yaga.

Hellboy vs Koshchei by ~mc-the-lane. From the suggester: "mc-the-lane has captured some incredible elements of the Hellboy universe, with the hanging skulls and the warped trees, as well as taking his own thoughts and ideas and adding them to the work, as can be seen in his artist's comments. This is what fan art is all about, taking the same old story and making something new of it!" ( Suggested by GaioumonBatou and Featured by aunjuli )

Yeah, and guess what club Mr. Obama is part of. Other wise he wouldn't have gotten teh presidency just showing that "Hawaiian" certificate of live birth when an actual birth certificate was supposed to be shown.

Great painting! That was an awesome storyline for the Hellboy comic. Nice use of colors and details on this. I like how you have Koschei cutting off one of the trinkets from Hellboy's belt.

My money's on Hellboy since he doesn't take crap from any monster or ghoul, especially if they're some punk immortal warlord whose soul is in an egg, that's in a duck, that's in a hare, that's in an iron chest, which is buried under a tree, which is on the island of Buyan (look it up on Wikipedia or Google it- it's all bizarrely true!).

Nice artist's comments you got there; very deep in a "just blew my mind" kinda way :XD:

I don't get why Koshchei has mogolian face features? He has to be russian, just very skinny and evil... what I see here is some Solovei Razboinik or Ghengis Khan. =\ But the painting is pretty anyway. My money on Hellboy, all the tome I know him he gets angry and kicks badguys' asses. ))))
