billy boy by Vaghauk billy boy by Vaghauk
this is an illustration for an book cover coming out from eraserhead press. [link]
The book is set in a futuristic post-apocalypse radioactive hillbilly world.so i tried to reflect this in the image.
the book is called "A Town Called Suckhole" written by David W. Barbee
check out the authors page here : [link]

i enjoyed every minute painting this. :)
my girlfriend says this is an self portrait.but i´m not THAT fat.
edit: and also not that ugly. :D

I choked laughing when I saw this.  Love the hat, reminds me of Val Kilmer's role in Tombstone.

:lol: I'm not even sure what to say. That is a guy I would not want to mess with. Triple-barrels ... when double-barrels aren't enough. And the lizard-dog! Oh my, that is hilarious.

And a self-portrait, eh? :laughing:

Oh, this is truly horrendous . . . In the best possible way. What a hilarious concept, too. And that chameleon dog made me roffle :P
