'Murica by DenaJarawr 'Murica by DenaJarawr
EDIT:
To those of you who think I took the idea from the painting of Chewbacca fighting on a squirrel, I made this before I even had any acknowledgement of the other painting. I had no intention of copying off of the other idea. Yes, I know they both have crossbows and giant squirrel mounts, but it was purely coincidental, as crazy as that sounds. I merely just tried to exaggerate the theme of the character Daryl Dixon, as he hunts squirrels and has a crossbow as his weapon of choice. Just wanted to throw that out there. 
The thing that matters to me the most is that this was a fun and crazy experience to paint. The only thing I wish I could go back and change is the position of the flag on the pole. I was trying to get this painting finished the day I needed it printed out, and the flag was rushed so badly that I flipped it backwards.

Since I'm going to be meeting Norman Reedus (AKA Daryl Motherfucking Dixon) tonight at the Nashville Horror & Tattoo convention, I figured I should go ahead and post. "Several years after the events that took place when the epidemic began, there stands only one survivor. He fears not the dead, yet the dead cower before him, as he sits atop his trusty giant sabre squirrel, Bloodspill. Daryl Dixon is truly the epitome of an asskicker and a historical American hero." 12 hrs. Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom tablet.

Awesome idea! :)
And yeah, times will come, everything is already drawn. Then the artist begin to draw twice, without knowing it.

I like this picture and many others from you. You earned a watch from me! ^^

That's okay. Long before any of this, I painted Daryl Dixon with Chewbacca's redneck wookie cousin Billy Bob-bacca (that digital painting is in my 'Walking Dead' gallery here on dA). :)

I didn't copy my concept from anyone either. (Someone later copied my version in cartoon format and sold it on T-shirts, though.)

I enjoyed your painting of Daryl on a big squirrel. Good job! :)

Totally. I don't expect people to stop being skeptical because they're obviously both similar in many ways, but I honestly did not know a painting like that even existed. Now that I do, I actually think the Chewbacca picture is so much more epic. Haha. :D

People can think what they want to think, though. The thing that matters to me the most is that this was a fun and crazy experience to paint. Definitely out of my comfort zone. The only thing I wish I could go back and change is the position of the flag on the pole. I was trying to get this painting finished the day I needed it printed out, and the flag was rushed so badly that I flipped it backwards. But I suppose it gives the impression that it's barely hanging on by the top of the pole. Or I simply just butchered the American flag. Oh well. I admit that I goofed on that flag (and people can deal with it!).
