thank you everyone so much for your kudos, glad you like it! :)

the Bad Snake many of you wonder about is explained in the tutorial video here:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVY3f_…

..so yeha, i basically made it for shits-and-giggles :)

what the whole thing is inspired by-  post-apocalyptic stuff ;) nothing and everything, mostly fallout and borderlands ofc.

and the weapon - you can see a closer shot of it in my gallery! :) its made of real sawblades, an axe handle, and other junk :)

p.s.- привет obratno russkim pekarjam!

Those costumes are incredible! I sure wish Mr. Hilarious-Crotch-Piece had a much less serious expression, though. The creativity spent on that particular part was kinda wasted on such a serious shot. Still great, however! XD

I'm normally not to fond of these post-apocalyptic-cum-tribal themes, but I really like what you've done with their costumes, and the composition of this piece. I get a real sense that things have been this way for a long time, that most technology has lost is function and serves more ornamental purposes instead. The tone of the photo also alludes to this sense of tension and despair ... I also notice a lot of people pointing out the man's gas mask codpiece. I actually really love that detail; it gives me the sense that this has been the norm for so long that our "modern" ideals about what is or isn't considered proper attire/lewd/inappropriate no longer applies. This really is a completely different world with completely different peoples inhabiting it. :heart:

Neat costumes, although the codpiece sort of takes away from the gritty, serious tone of the rest of the shot.

His weapon makes absolutely no sense, then again neither does his outfit. XD I'm wondering how he even uses that thing... It's awesome nonetheless though.

Fantastic costumes! It really does feel as if Papua New Guinea was made out of Wall-E's world.

Presumably Nordic or underground folks, keeping their skin so pale :)

To everybody who is confused/disturbed/childishly amused by the "Bad Snake" adorning this man's groin:

Humans have been making phallic decorations (as well as icons of female fertility) for as long as we've been humans. Today, men in many tribal cultures still use penis-gourds and similar ornaments to showcase/exaggerate the penis, while men living in more modern, 'civilized' cultures covet other types of penis stand-ins (I'll let you use your imagination to come up with a list of those).

I think this artist included the 'Bad Snake' (as it says on the mask's strap) as a reference to tribal penis gourds to give these warriors an authentic tribal style (similar to the woman's deer antlers). However, it could just as easily be a depiction of that raw, hormonal expression of masculinity so typical of a barbarian man living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Either way, I think it is an interesting & stylistically successful addition to an already superb piece of costume art.

'face-crotch'!! Yeah I can't stop giggling at it. It seems to have no purpose & counter-intuitive to a good set of armor. If one fell on that, I'm sure it'd cause pain. Otherwise, if that wasn't in the costume I'm sure I'd take those barbarians seriously. Everything else looks wickedly awesome.
