Tribute by Darth-Frodo Tribute by Darth-Frodo
Woohoo! Got it done in time! :dance: I was really worried I wouldn't get this done in time for the deadline :worry: This is for the Collaborative Fanbook Project for...well a lot of people, but mainly DPO and #DP-RealFans. It's basically a large fanbook being constructed for DP writer Steve Marmell.

Now, it was told to us that Steve Marmell's a big Packer fan and I've had this idea in mind since last year actually when Favre said he was going to retire but didn't, but since it's official this year I decided this was a perfect time to bring that idea forward! =D I don't know how well you can see the newspaper, but it's basically the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel alerting the public of Favre's retirement, which would of course crush Vlad as much as it did the rest of us seeing how huge a Packer fan he is =D And for the record, the two cheeseheads are Vlad and I, and the another is whoever's looking at the pic at the time, if they are a cheesehead of course.

In addition though, this is also my way of saying goodbye to Favre. Like the Packers or hate them, you can't deny that Favre was one of the best quarterbacks football's ever seen. He holds ever top honor a quarterback can possibly hold and you have to admit that says a lot. Packer football and even football in general won't ever be the same without him and this upcoming season's going to be so hard to watch without that star number 4 out there on the field tearing it up =( So as well as a gift for the wonders that Steve Marmell has done in regards to DP, this is also a tribute to a great football player that made the Green Bay Packers what they are today. Brett Favre, I saulte you. :salute:

Lessee...a few clarifications... Yes, I know the anatomy's screwy, but I did the drawings really really fast. Yes, I know it's kinda bland in presentation, but again, I did it really fast (I just remembered this idea and started working on it the day before yesterday so I was kinda on a crunch and I'm sure it shows >.<) That and I despise backgrounds and really didn't know what else to put in the scene...:paranoid: Also, I know that Favre kinda looks like Dash, and that wasn't intended as anything symbolic of their personalities or anything, just that Favre has always had a very short haircut and that was just the best hairstyle I could find that worked. So he wasn't supposed to look like Dash, he just ended up coming out that way because I found their hairstyles similar. Oh, and the signature isn't real either! I'm sure you all probably know that but I think I need to clarify that for legal purposes. I found it online and copied it and it is in no way real or authentic.

And Vlad...don't even get me started on him. I really hate the shape of his head and can't draw it right to save my life so sorry if his head looks really oddly shaped. This was my first time ever drawing him so please, cut me some slack >.<

So...I think that's it for now. Kinda long note I know but there's a lot I wanted to say in regards to it.

And now...disclaimers...I know there are going to be a lot of those...:paranoid:

Newspaper Headline: "Favre is now a Viking."

Vlad: Favre playing for the VIKINGS!?!?! AAAAAAHHHHH!!! (transforms into Plasmius and destroys the paper with a ghost ray)

Hahaha! That's great! :rofl: I think Vlad would feel up to doing a little more than destroying the paper lol And you know what, I don't think I'd mind him going after the Packers management for kicking Favre out in the first place...:paranoid:

This shows that Vlad does have a heart deep down.
Darth-Frodo Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
That he does, for the things he cares about at least =P

actually, the assistant Dean of students at my school was a former Green Bay Packer.

Nice work!

I like how you drew this, but there's one major problem...

You did this as a Packers thing... *sigh* :disbelief: I'm sorry , but I'm a diehard Vikings fan. You shoulda known I wouldn't like this due to the simple fact that it's Packers... Well ... lol you know what I'm saying good drawing bad subject.
AuroraKet Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2008
Same here. Heehee. :)

Packers are THE ENEMY. :)

I'll cheer and applaud now that he's with the Jets tho ;p

6 TD passes in one game with the Jets receiver corps. Wow. :)
Samantha-GirlScout Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
lol I honestly won't... Vikings ALL THE WAY!
AuroraKet Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2009
Well, I'll cheer as long as he keeps out of the way of the Vikings anyway. Since the Jets don't play them too often, I can laugh and not worry.
awren Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
Not bad. I do agree that he does look like Dash... I was kinda O_o WTF? why is Dash in a gilded frame?!?!

In Green Bay there was tons of stuff about Farve retireing... and all I have is a signed football from when I was four (the fact that I was four when #4 signed a football for me never ceaces to amuse me) my dad is the one who technically owns all of the stuff, like the newspaper and the magazine stuff about him ;p it's going to be weird hearing about ('cause I'm not all that into football even though I'm a Packers fan) some other quarterback playing because Farve's been playing for about as long as I've been alive...
Spikes-Angel Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2008
awh bye Farve. :cry:
