Peaceful Moga Night by MMan222 Peaceful Moga Night by MMan222
You really do never get a minute alone in Monster Hunter. :) The moment you stop to take a break or eat something, you've got a giant monster on your back.

Hey! I'm not even out here to hunt monsters! I'm just enjoying some delicious Aptonoth meat, that's all! :la:
Maybe I should have worn armor...


So I really wanted to try something new and I decided I really like the visuals in Monster Hunter. Some of the areas you travel to are just beautiful, and I wanted to take a shot at recreating that beauty. And, as with every time I do something like this, I didn't originally plan to take so long doing it. I made it into a "no lines" challenge for myself. :)

I think it turned out pretty well, but my poor laptop was dying on me because of this thing. Here's why:
.psd file
364 MB
4500x3300
54 layers
aaaaand about 50 hours of my time. xD


Background-only version: [link] Full sized download is available for either, if you want to use it for a background or anything. :)

Please be considerate of how you use this, though. Copyright to me for the drawing, copyright to Capcom for the awesome game with monsters. You can repost this elsewhere, but please credit me. If you try and take credit for this drawing, I will find you. :rage:

Ah yes, the "no pause" of monster hunter is an annoyance to us all. Anyway, that is very well drawn. This has happened to me plenty of times, except the monster was a Great Jaggi. I just scare him away by slashing his face and then continue on my way.

It happens to me all the time. Once, it was a too-friendly Rathalos landing on my head while I slowly enjoyed my fancy meal of burnt aptonoth meat. :)

Dude are you still on MH3 at all? I've been on it very often and now I'm about hr 186 or something, forget but it's within the 180 range. We have to hunt again! lol

Wow such a high rank! :O I'm still back at HR 53 I think. I've been having problems with getting my Wii online on campus. Over the summer I could connect to my home internet but at school I have to get the Wii plugged into the ethernet, which is harder than it should ever be. My Wii has been offline all semester. :(

I'm at home now for Christmas but I didn't take the Wii due to lack of space to take it with me.

Ahh I see lol, hopefully you can get it back online soon. Oh and I'd have to send you another friend request because I ran out of room and removed you since you haven't been on in so long (I HATE HAVING TO DO THAT!! X.X) so yeah... I've already accomplished a ton, I've even soloed Evil Joe XD gotta love Barioth+ and Agnaktor+ armor...

I have so many friends on there who either never play or erased me. x_x I wish it would erase anyone from my list that erased me so I'd have less wasted space on there.

Man, I still need to get that Bari+ armor. Dodge+ and evade distance would be godly. xD

Yeah, if there was no limit we wouldn't have this problem! Oh well... When you get on again and you see me on, message me and I'll re-add you, then we can kill hunt some enemies down lol

And yeah, Barioth+ is amazing, but I like Agnaktor+ even more with all the slots and guard +2, not to mention it also has razor sharp skill and other stuff. I even have Evasion +1 on it lol. With the charms and stuff I have, I can have up to 23 dragon resistance after eating, not to mention that nice 25 fire res lol. I also got that awesome sabertooth lance. So I pretty much have a perfect set for fighting alatreon and stuff XD

Ok, we should get back online and hunt some more lol, I recently beat Alatreon (Ugh, he was a nightmare to fight), but only with the help of a hacker, all my other attempts with other parties failed miserably, it's the sad truth, but it was satisfying to see him get nuked after the horror he was giving me lol. And I recently hunted several Deviljho's with good people, he wasn't that tough the first couple rounds, then one dude, and me, got owned horribly, I FAINTED TWICE BECAUSE EVIL JOE USED CHEAT! XD yeah, everyone was like *wtf just happened?!* The last two times we fought him he was owned horribly. Ok I still have yet to actually kill Alatreon in any normal way, so I still have to do that. But I'd totally would love to hunt with you some more, you haven't been on in a while. But it's ok, I'm in no hurry. Man, I still see Evil Joe as mostly a fair fighter and Alatreon the worst noob ever lol.

I finally got my Wii online so if you want to play sometime, tell me when you're on. I've killed Alatreon a few times now, but I'm horribly unlucky with my teams. Everyone but me always dies and fails it. @_@ And I still need more materials to upgrade my ala hammer. And I kind of want to get the gunner armor set, just to be cool. xD

Joe has been even more hellish to me, though. It's the same problem as with Alatreon, except that he hasn't killed me even once.

Always good to have Cha-cha with :)

Hmm, so I'll have to give my online id number so you can send me a friend request, if you have online play. I'll be on there a lot today, since it's Saturday :D

Still need to upgrade my weapons, but my armor is pretty superb at the moment, and I have Demondrugs, Armorskins etc.

Hmm, hunting a Lagiacrus online is going to be much harder than offline, since they upped the damage and health monsters have in online play.

Yeah, I'm HR 56 online, I think.
My internet was fail all day, so I couldn't get online even to see this message. Here's my character's info though:
IGN: Jihiro
number: 3JCG6H

Most of the time, online quests are best done with 3-4 hunters that are close to the required rank. If you have good enough weapons, you can go just as fast with only 2 or 3 people. :) I can solo a Great Jaggi online now in about 1 minute. xD

Nice! I'm still pretty far behind, but I'm already really powerful. My HR is 15 at the moment. I'll add you when I get online tomorrow, then we can do quests together ourselves. Oh, and I just got done hunting a Lagiacrus online since I had the proper rank to join. He's really not that hard once you know his moves, but he still can surprise you every now and then. If there's one enemy that's really tough at the moment, it's that Rathian! lol...
I still need to beat the offline game too. My current weapon I use most is the Spiral Lance+ but I could use a lance with the thunder element more, since it can stun enemies every now and then. Man, I still can't get over how hilariously awesome that picture of you and that Lagiacrus right behind you xD

Man, but if there's one crazy thing that Rathian can do, it's pin you down! One of my buddies got pinned down and I managed to recoil the rathian off of him.

Eh, just rambling I guess, if there's a lot on my mind, I can post really long replies, so yeah.

Anyway, my character name is: Link

I just had to name him that just for the heck of it, so it'd feel like I'm playing as my favorite Nintendo Character a little. But you know me as Link-117, so yeah :)

Ok, sounds good! :D If you can find your code and tell me that, I might be able to find you better. Tri doesn't seem to limit you from taking names that other people have online, so there might be other Links playing. xD I'll probably be on around 3 pm mountain time, so I'll be looking for you then. :D

Hehe, thanks!

If you're wondering, it's a game where you try to eat potions and meat and drinks and stuff and monsters interrupt you in the middle of your 3-5 second animations. :D
Reply
:icontarripup:
TarriPup Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010  Student Digital Artist
..?
So... the game is all about eating and drinking, and you have to make sure you don't get interrupted by monsters..?
Sounds more like something that happens to you in the game.. more like you get ATTACKED by monsters while you are trying to EAT. :XD:
And then you get wasted, and not necessarily on booze! :lol:

I'm guessing.. you hunt monsters in the game, and you eat meat, drink potions, etc etc to restore health, up stats, etc.
Am I warm? =P
Reply
:iconmman222:
MMan222 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup, that's more like it. xD You have to be careful with eating stuff. It's like the second you pull out some meat and start the 5 second animation to eat it, a giant bug or raptor or something comes out and knocks you down before you finish. :D
Reply
:icontarripup:
TarriPup Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Ah.. is it because they are attracted to the meat? Or see you as an easy target? =P
Reply
:iconmman222:
MMan222 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess because most of the things you run into will either see you as prey or decide to be really territorial. xD And they're all over the place.
