The Civil War by Kanaru92 The Civil War by Kanaru92
A sophisticated bear with a mustache riding Abraham Lincoln with laser eyes into glorious battle.

The concept was originally a random idea my friend asked me to speed draw in my AP Physics class. Abe and the bear became the topic of a few more doodles, and I felt like surprising him with a full painting.

I have to thank him for getting it to the front page of Reddit. :D

. . . what the hell am I looking at? Haha!
On the technical front, this was very well done -- it has a nice color palette and lighting, the perspective makes Lincoln look like as if he's about to crawl right out of the picture (which will make me dream about the greatest Americans in history coming at me with Superman powers now . . .), and the bear has an epic face, holding one of the coolest American flags I have ever seen.
Last but not least, this is really funny, of course! Reminds me of some other deviation on here that had George Washington fighting off a zombie horde.

Nothing personal, and feel free to prove me wrong, but I don't think you made this, or you'd be showing the entire picture. It also doesn't fit with the rest of your art style?

I found the full version here before finding this [link]

If anyone knows where to find the full picture it would be greatly appreciated if you shared that information.

That's someone using something called Content-Aware Filling, which is why you see many elements repeated exactly there. The "entire picture" is an edited version of this. I don't see how it isn't my art style, and I have the .psd files, WIP versions, and a full resolution image of the painting as well if you really need me to prove that.

"A sophisticated bear with a mustache riding Abraham Lincoln with laser eyes into glorious battle."

I believe we have reached transcendence as a people. Future generations will look to this image for tales of old glory, like when Ben Franklin rode a Pterodactyl to England to deliver the constitution to the eternal palace of knightmares in which king George sat, whereupon they had an epic chainsaw duel before teatime.

The only thing that could make this picture even more awesome would be Teddy Roosevelt.

Of course, if that happened, the awesomeness quotient that would be contained within this picture would cause the Internet to explode.
