The Secret of Monkey Island by Javas The Secret of Monkey Island by Javas
Best game ever or what?!


Man, probably the funniest things I ever draw. It was quite challenging tho, cause many many of you told me many many times how my style would perfectly fit into the Monkey Island game series, so I really wanted to do it good, bringing my own style but trying to keep its essence. The characters are from the first game, but I used the designs from the third one (except the old Herman toothrooth, I dont remember him appearing in it). So here it is, hope you all like it.

I even have plans on doing a series of adventure games myself. What can I say? The Monkey Island games are a big inspiration to all!

I like how Stan sort of looks like 90s Bruce Campbell. Definitely feels like a role he'd play too.

You've captured the spirit of one of the greatest video game series of all-time. A wonderful illustration, if I may say so.

I totally loved that game back in the day. Hell, I'd prolly still love it today. Nice artwork. (But you forgot the necklace of eyes that made the head/Guybrush invisible to the ghosts...) :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

At first I found your gallery by accident through someone's favourites, and I was interested in your style, so I went over to see more, then after I clicked the watch button I went to the gallery and I was very pleasantly surprised that you like Monkey Island, one of my favourite all time games!! :D This is a gorgeous piece of art, I'm happy how you included all of the characters in the whimsical unique style of yours. The colouring is beautiful, totally fits the style of the games. Nice textures and backlights here as well. :D I'm sure I have been on this deviation before, but somehow I forgot to favourite it the last time (or it may have been on my older account) Either way, I'm really glad I found it again. Yay Monkey Island!! :highfive:

Hey dude I faved this like, a LIFETIME ago but still come back to it (A few yrs back this was even the wallpaper on my mobile phone I love it that much) and i'm eventually going to design myself a Monkey Island sleeve to have tattooed on my arm. I'll be doing it as a mix of 3 and Tales of... As I love the cartoony elements of it!
Anyways, after years I thought I would tell you I still LOVE this picture and thought you might appreciate this link for the music (Doesnt limit you to the one on Youtube) : [link]
