There's no "I" in Demoman by michaelfirman There's no "I" in Demoman by michaelfirman
Art from a poster I made for Valve's TF2 Propaganda contest! The type on it read "There's no 'I' in Demoman. The true team player."

Get it?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I'm making fun of his handicap!

Also there is definitely an "I" in "soldier" because he is a selfish doydoy.

It's funny that "Demoman" is like "Butman" (Butt man) in Nihonese XDDD

Also I don't know what this is but its epic! O.O

Ha ha, that's awesome trivia. This is merely a character from a shooter game, Team Fortress 2. The "Demo" is short for "demolitions"

So... If there's no "I" what about "Me"? "watashi" (japan) ? "ich" (German)?

There is no I in Demoman, but there is a Me!

Which can also be an "em", as in, "them".

Which I guess means you're playing for the other team?!

That's true. When things actually do go down, a demoman's best friends are actually his pipes (his biceps). But also his pipes (his digestive plumbing). But also his bombs (his pipes).

LOL no "I" in demoman...

did you use a polygon tool for this? or freehand? either way, TOO COOL.

Freehand brushing, which becomes more evident when you look at the wobbliness of some of the edges! Thanks so much for the view and kind words :)

Wow, great colours here, the brightest red has been used especially well. :heart: Highlights the Demoman and all that! The style feels almost, grungy too: that probably isn't the right word but it's perfect for the competition.
ooh also, the other people's lenses :D love those too!
Good luck; I get the feeling you're going to do great. :lol:

Losing an eye is like gaining a friend. The friend is partial blindness.

That little bit of yellow is EYE-catching.

L4D2 rocks too, yeah.

I think we should play arenamode on TF2 together. Come on, come play vidya games with a stranger who comments on your dev's and reads your comix. ;D
